A charity event is the perfect place to meet singles this time of year. Here are four reasons why:
1. It’s the holidays.
This is the time when hooking up is as difficult as playing keep-away from Webster.
Face it, no one likes being alone for the holidays. Sure, visiting Mom and Dad in Florida can be fun, but a last-minute escape to Tulum with a new flame can be a helluva lot more fun.
The holidays are like a wedding that lasts for an entire month. We’re on the prowl for lips to lock when the ball drops, and charity benefits during the holiday season are the most fertile recruiting grounds.
Like a wedding, you’re dressed up and ready to party and (more importantly) meet new people.
2. A benefit shows you’re giving and caring.
It also shows you share the same philanthropic cause. It’s like you have something in common right off the bat.
“There are an endless amount of
benefits during the holiday season.”
3. You pass the “not a deadbeat” test.
Buying a benefit ticket doesn’t equate to minting money, but if you’re struggling financially, you aren’t putting on suits and dresses to give it away.
Money can’t buy happiness, but when it comes to building a life together, the road can be easier if you both have a job or the ambition to get one at the very least.
4. A benefit provides a sense of security.
One reason why it was so easy to get laid in college was because it felt safe. (Other reasons were drugs and alcohol, but we’ll reminisce about that another time).
You went to the same school, the same circle. There was a screening process there.
It’s the same thing with benefits. You have to buy a ticket and provide your information. They know how to find you. A benefit offers a safety net. It makes a big world smaller and is the next best thing to a personal introduction.
Think of it like a wedding: You have to give money and it’s easy to hook up. The difference is you don’t have to wait around for an invitation.
There are an endless amount of benefits during the holiday season. Find the ones with causes that would attract people with similar interests.
It’s a win-win. You put yourself out there and help what you care about most in the process.
