I am not looking forward to New Year's Eve this year. I broke up with my boyfriend of five years this fall and New Year's was the one holiday we went all out on. Sometimes we'd spend it with friends, sometimes with his family, and sometimes alone. Either way, it was always a big deal.
Help me cope. I have no plans and none are on the horizon unless I go out alone, which isn't going to happen. Although we have been broken up for several months, I'm still having a very hard time moving on, and the holidays have been extremely tough. I'm ready for the new year, but I'm afraid my NYE will be spent feeling sad and emotional; not how I want to ring in 2009. Do you have any advice?
