So just a heads up, single people - these holiday lays are 100% going to be a part of your reality this year.
Your parents have relocated now that they are retired and you and your siblings are out of the house. It was to be expected. The downside is that this new place holds no nostalgia for you. On the flip side, you have absolutely no roots there. Which means that when you go out strolling for some action, you don't run the risk of knowing the random dude you hook up with. Yeah, your parents could but come the New Year, you'll be back in your own city and don't have to think about what's his name until the next time you visit your folks.
High School Sweetheart
For those from small towns, the reality is that many of those people never leave. You did, but once or twice a year you have to head back. The holidays being one of those times. Which means that you will most definitely run into a high school sweetheart. It'll be at Wal-Mart because that is the favorite place of small town people. The best thing about a high school lover is that things they were likely your first and there's a sentiment in the sex...if they're not with anyone!
