Here's how to find the perfect date for your office party: don't.
Look, I'm just going to tell you what no one else will: there is no good date for the office party. In fact, there are only one of two possible outcomes: your date is either going to be incredibly bored and hate you for making them sit through the misery, or they're going to get drunk and humiliate you. There is no in between.
And trust me, you can kiss that promotion goodbye once your date starts doing the Macarena on the buffet table.
Instead, go alone and laugh at enjoy meeting everyone else's spouse. That's always fun. Let’s just say you don’t have to be a CSI detective to figure out where Carl the quiet computer programmer met his lovely Filipino bride.
Meeting your boss's spouse is the best. You always dying to know who in the World could live with this person. They say behind every good man is a good woman. So who's behind that jerk that manages you? The office party is your big chance to find out.
Going alone frees you from the burden of worrying about whether your date is having fun, and it opens up the opportunity of browsing through important computer files while everyone else is drunk.
So be single. Have fun. Leave the date at home.
