I recently started dating a few nice men where we have had about 3 or 4 dates that have gone well. I was sure that one of them would have asked me out for New Year's. It's less than a week away and they all seem to have disappeared. What should I do?
The holidays put too much pressure on a brand new relationship, or in your case just on daters in general. Some people would actually prefer to be alone rather than having that forced kiss at midnight on New Year's Eve.
My suggestion is to do nothing. Many go on vacation during the holidays and others just don't want to have a date with pressure. Find some friends to spend the evening with, attend a party if you can, or simply go to the movies. Waiting around for a date may only make you feel worse. If someone asks you out at the last minute, you just may already be booked. Then again, you just might meet someone new at a party who will become number one on your date card.
