13 Creative Ways To Score A New Year's Kiss
Huffington Post

If you're like me, chances are you won't be ringing in the New Year with someone special, but that doesn't mean you can't take part in one of the greatest New Year's traditions. There's a lot of pressure to smooch when the clock strikes midnight, but it can be a little overwhelming when you're going into the New Year solo. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Here are some unconventional ways to ensure you're not the only one starting 2017 without a kiss.

1. Bring Your Own Mistletoe

This might seem kind of silly considering Christmas has already passed, but I promise. A mistletoe is a mistletoe and is likely to attract crushes and strangers alike.

2. Order a Pizza

I know on the surface this doesn't make any sense, but someone has to deliver the pizza you order and that someone has a set of lips you could definitely kiss. Timing on this one could be tricky, so make sure the pizza gets there right before midnight!

3. Use Tinder

Surely if someone in the immediate area is on Tinder, they're down for a midnight kiss. It doesn't have to be serious, right?

4. Stage A Photoshoot

Bring a friend and a camera. Seek out the certain someone you want to be kissing at midnight, and tell them your friend needs a kissing photo for their photography project. Not only will you get the kiss, but you'll also have photographic evidence!

5. Play Dead

It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but they do call it the "kiss of life" for a reason.

6. Bribery

Whether it's candy, coffee, or cash, you could always pay someone for a midnight peck.

7. Spin The Bottle

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F23%2F636180536899113658-1351650605_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=247&h=1d57a52bb1c02a085c87964a71c04ae9dddd7d58d408d5496e6f78122b233a34&size=980x&c=1465335337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F23%252F636180536899113658-1351650605_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D247%26h%3D1d57a52bb1c02a085c87964a71c04ae9dddd7d58d408d5496e6f78122b233a34%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1465335337%22%7D" expand=1]

This one could have serious potential at a New Year's party with a lot of singles. Everyone can pair up for the countdown!

8. Make A T-shirt

Nothing says "I need a midnight kiss" like bold letters on the front of a t-shirt. This one is sure to get a few laughs, but definitely score you a kiss.

9. Go To The Drive Thru

This one is a little more of a last resort. No party? No other singles? Take yourself to McDonald's and order some midnight McNuggets. Don't want to kiss the person at the first window? Pull right up to the next one!

10. Trip And Fall Right Into Someone's Lips

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F23%2F636180536903802003-1277881889_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=313&h=fa84ec2ca7b113a61868d9a89d192ad4d5e8bcb15d5602c8140c50326e222b20&size=980x&c=1901438803 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F23%252F636180536903802003-1277881889_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D313%26h%3Dfa84ec2ca7b113a61868d9a89d192ad4d5e8bcb15d5602c8140c50326e222b20%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1901438803%22%7D" expand=1]

Accidental kisses are a thing, right?

11. Save Someone's Life

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F23%2F636180536901613767112119412_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=112&h=63f1cf42f2470c9b86dff63fef508342ac0be4f47421a7a649f67a6f964c987c&size=980x&c=419461095 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F23%252F636180536901613767112119412_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D112%26h%3D63f1cf42f2470c9b86dff63fef508342ac0be4f47421a7a649f67a6f964c987c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D419461095%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether it's catching someone before they slip or giving CPR, kisses make great thank you's for life saving deeds.

12. Truth Or Dare

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F23%2F636180536901794313-921439468_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=254&h=64f56bda05077b6bfa5b44e6cccbb7b2c00876e560ca08657c51cc7625e6c080&size=980x&c=3053767860 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F23%252F636180536901794313-921439468_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D254%26h%3D64f56bda05077b6bfa5b44e6cccbb7b2c00876e560ca08657c51cc7625e6c080%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3053767860%22%7D" expand=1]

It's another classic middle school party game, but having a good friend daring the right person to be your midnight kiss just might pay off.

13. Just Go For It

Whether that means asking a stranger to kiss you at midnight, or completely blindsiding your crush with a surprise smooch, confidence is key. Just kiss someone! It's all in good fun anyway.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
