This Hilarious Video Shows Expectations vs. Reality of Being in a Relationship During the Holidays

Pin It
There is something magical about the holiday time and if you've been single during the holidays, you know the feeling of suddenly longing to be in a relationship when December comes around.

But, is having a significant other during the holidays really all that it's cracked up to be? Are single people actually missing out by NOT having someone to take to their family holiday parties? This hilarious BuzzFeed video perfectly depicts what our expectations of being in a relationship during the holidays are versus the reality of being in a relationship during the holidays and let's just say there is quite a contrast!


First, there are family parties. If you've been single for awhile and you're finally showing up with someone, your expectations stop just short of the fam rolling out the red carpet and having a fireworks display in your honor. The reality? Not exactly that...

And then you still have to go to THEIR family's holiday party. And your work party, and theirs. And that's just the party circuit! There is also your vision of how you guys will bond over your respective childhood memories, traveling, sharing your traditions with each other, exchanging gifts and a whole lot more!
