There is nothing wrong with being single; in fact, I find it quite freeing. Some people, however, need companionship, and there is nothing wrong with that either. The problem comes when you find yourself in between these two categories. I.E. You are an uno who wants to become a duo.
On certain dates being single is made all the more challenging. Valentine's Day is the most obvious, but there is also your birthday, Christmas, and of course New Year's. New Year's can be particularly poignant for a few of reasons. First, you're still recovering from your singles night on Christmas, and then the 31st of December comes like a prodding stick just to point out the fact again. There is also the issue of what New Year's represents: new beginnings. For some, the fact that they are still single suggests this is going to be the theme for yet another annum.
But enough with all these depressing thoughts, because all that is about to end. From 8pm on the 31st December, all you single folk out there can visit the Rydges Kensington Hotel for a New Year's Eve Singles Party. Aimed at 22-45 year olds, you no longer have to feel like your mate's third wheel. Instead, you can be the centre of attention at a singles party spectacular designed to match up cool professionals looking for love.
Standard tickets are £30.92, but the first hundred bookings before the 25th December can get in for £29.99. Single guys can also get in for free if they tag along with a girl 'friend'. On entry you will receive a complimentary glass of Prosecco, and before you leave, a free continental breakfast.
The party will take place in the main room, with private rooms for mini-dates, a bar to chat at, and live matchmaking sessions. There is also the chance to win dinner at the hotel's Jam Cupboard restaurant, with your dream date.
