As a single man or woman, the last thing you can do is gloat over your status this holiday as there are a thousand people who are just in the same boat as you are.

We all know Christmas and New Year is a time to be together with families and loved ones but since you aren't, that's not a reason to be unhappy.

Inspired by Huffington Post, here are some things you can do if you find yourself single again this holiday season:

1. Be active: This is one way to get rid of your loneliness. It doesn't mean you should go out on useless dates, you can reach out to old friends, distant neighbours, volunteer for a charitable cause, as for overtime at work if you love your job too much. Don't let your happiness depend on anyone.

2. For single parents, find other single parents who are willing to spend sometime with you and your kids this holiday. You may realise you have so much in common in the long run.

3. Do anything you want to do: Maybe you haven't realised it yet, but you can do anything you want to do all by yourself. Celebrate your own holiday in a unique way and be grateful that you aren't in a relationship miserable.

4. Always remember that you're probably single because you didn't put up with crap from your ex.

5. If that's not enough reason and you're about to cry, you can get a paper and pen, make a list of all the annoying things your ex did then go ahead and set it alight. January is coming soon enough.
