New Year's Eve is a great excuse to get all dressed up and dance the night away ... but it can also be a night of high expectations and forced "fun" that can leave you feeling like you should have just stayed home. If you want to enjoy yourself on New Year's Eve, here's what you need to avoid:
Over-hyped parties: Don't waste your time on a party that is filled with strangers and expensive drinks just because it's the "place to be." If you actually want to have fun, spend the night with close friends and family at a place you feel comfortable.
Your Ex: Don't go where he's going -- you will either get upset that he's there flirting with someone else or you will end up hooking up with him and regretting it the next day. Start the year off on the right foot!
Putting pressure on the midnight kiss: If it happens. it happens. If not ... so what?! Do you really want to swap spit with someone out of sheer desperation?
Making unrealistic resolutions: Give yourself something that you have to work for but that is attainable. And don't tell yourself you are going to hit the gym on New Year's Day after a night of drinking and partying into the wee hours!
Drinking too much: You don't want to start of the first day of the new year with a nasty hangover. (PopSugar)
