Online Dating Anxiety Disorder (ODAD) is overwhelming.
Stop Stalking Your Ex I'm here to tell you that being single on the holidays is fine. You'll feel anxious if you don't see him or her logging on assuming you've been replaced.

It's the perfect time to start filling your date card, but how do you coordinate holiday dating without feeling overwhelmed and a bit anxious?
My biggest recommendation is to look at online dating and flirting on Facebook as ways to expand your social circle.While recycling an ex over the holidays is common, the feelings after the holiday party euphoria have worn off, or after the post-sex hormones diminish again, will leave you in a worse place emotionally than if you were spending time with friends or trying to cultivate a new relationship.It's Peak Season for Online Daters The good news is that more singles are signing up for dating sites between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day.When you have ODAD, you're a member of so many sites, you can't remember where you met the date you're about to have dinner with.Text messages become a part of your dating regime and if the time in between the texts is over four hours, you start to feel anxious and catastrophize.From kissing under the mistletoe to the eight gifts on Hanukkah, we look at our Instagram feed and it just magnifies how tough it is being single at the holidays.
