We’ve seen our fair share of holiday hookups, and most of them don’t go over so well, so by all means, get with the scuba divers and the yoga instructors, just don’t go for these 5 holiday hookups.
#1 The cousin
No matter now many times removed, you’re still related so unless you are madly in love (take off them goggles!) don’t move into that territory.
#2 The co-worker
Office parties should be banned. No, alcohol at office parties should be banned. Because then the girl you’ve always thought was ‘quite hot’ becomes the light at the end of an angler fish. You have to have it, a moth to a flame, a mosquito to an electric bug swapper. The only happy ending out of this is if one of you quits.
#3 The best friend of the opposite sex
You’ve travelled loads with this guy/girl, and suddenly, the light hits in a different way, and you’re in love. Nope. Unless you’re willing to forsake your entire friendship for one misjudgement, think 47 times before you even look at them in a different way.
#4 The ex
What’s worse than the best friend? The ex. The ex that cost you 10 pints of Ben & Jerry’s and a floor full of tissues to get over. Don’t walk 3 steps just to go back another 5.
#5 The lonely heart
So you’re off solo and you meet a lonely heart by the bar. She seems harmless, on the rebound and on her own, too. Don’t do it. Desperate hearts will read too much into everything and the chances of this hookup ending well are as good as you winning the lottery with a $2 ticket.
