In the spirit of selfless giving

I want to pass on to all my single readers.

Some Christmas come-ons:

* Have you finished doing all of your Christmas shopping yet? (A charming and concerned ice-breaker)

* So where are you spending Christmas this year? (In other words, are you going to be around so I can ravish you?)

* Any idea what the history behind mistletoe is? (An innocent flirtation that is only slightly provocative.)

* Have you ever cooked a Christmas dinner? I'm thinking of having Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year’s at my house this year, and I'm a little nervous about it. (Especially charming when it comes from a sensitive male.)

* Do you remember when you figured out there was no Santa Claus?

* What's your favourite Christmas memory?

* I'm having a little cocktail party at my house this year; what would be easy to serve? (Hint: after you've engaged him or her in a conversation, invite him or her to your cocktail party and then start planning one!)

* So, what was your day like? (Always a kind, sincere approach, and perhaps a good segue into some Christmas shopping nightmare stories.)

* Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions? Do you have any this year?

* You lot seem like you're having a really good time. Are you all friends? (Always a good one when you see a group of friends having a good time — especially when you want to get to know one or two of them in particular.)

The list could go on and on if you're determined and creative enough. Just remember to include references to Christmas and New Year's, be sincere and polite and embody that festive spirit. It could be the beginning of a great new year.
