Hello,
My girlfrinds gone to Paris for xmas as thats where her family are from, I dont speak to my family so im faced with spending xmas alone. I have to work most days over xmas apart from xmas day and boxing day.

If I get a flight to Paris to surprise my girlfreind I will have to take time off work on a 'sicky' probably get sacked, will cost me money which I dont have a lot of and I may not be welcome at my girlfreinds familys house.

Should I go to Paris and surprise her? Should I stay in the UK and spend xmas alone?

Invite some mates round for a party at yours.I wouldnt just turn up in Paris,you have not been officially invited and it will cost you money.:)

I spent Christmas on my own one year because of a split up and my family were in Australia at the time. It was fine! One funny thing was no-one actually knew I was on my own because I didn't want them to feel obliged to invite me along to their parties etc and on Christmas day all these people who never normally get in touch, called me! Coincidence? Dunno. But it wasn't a sad day because it didn't feel like Christmas, it was just a nice quiet time on my own - and I was the only one who went back to work without having put on weight!

Sounds like it's not the best idea to head to Paris, do you not have any close friends you could visit? I know it's difficult because you don't want to crash people's families celebrations etc, but maybe you could just pop round to numerous friends houses for 1 hour at a time - if there's no where you can go for the full day.

Grab yourself some bargains.

Web sales start on Christmas Day

but whatever you end up doing, have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.:santa:

Remember, if you do end up alone it's only one day...try not to get too down about it and just look forward to your missus returning and an excellent Christmas next year :)

Why not give some of your time to doing voluntary work perhaps Shelter, or The Salvation Army or other charity, they must be short of help at Christmas. It would make you feel good too.:santa:
#12
Thanks for all the suggestions, the voluntary work sounds good, will have a look on the net for something. Still really want to go to Paris to be with our lass but I suppose you cant have everything your way.

I wouldn't "surprise her" if you haven't been going out that long. Just turning up at her parents may throw her a little, call first.

Why not invite a few friends round for a party or something.

If not, three words "Die Hard Boxset" the perfect christmas. :santa:

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.......and think of the fun you'll have once she's back!:whistling:
#15
I'll swap with you if you want?
#16
I'll assume that this is a fairly new girlfriend?:thinking:
#17
it'll fly by, last year my kids went to their dads, the first xmas i spent without them, i tried to be positive and just got on with it, ended up watching films all evening with a friend, just think of when you get together next :)
#18
If your girlfriend wanted you in paris then surely she would have invited you
#19
Im not saying ive got it bad or anything, just couldnt make my mind up on what to do. Been with my gf for 2 years now, actually met her in 2004. She sort of did invite me, she said I could have gone if I could have got the time off work but that was about 2 months ago. A freind of mine is going to come down for xmas and going to cook us both a dinner. I suppose what I really wanted every one to say is GO TO PARIS!! because I was missing her but it makes sence to stay. Thanks for everyones input.
