Daily life can be so mundane. Get up early, go to work, spend time with family, and go to bed only to do the very same thing the next day. It's easy to get sucked into feeling like your life is boring and wishing you were someone else. As adults, it's not as simple as children's play. We can't dress up in a different outfit and pretend to have a different life and career. Or can we?
One day of the year, everyone has permission to play the part of someone else. You can wear something funny, sexy, or just plain weird without anyone batting an eyelash since they are doing the exact same thing. It's all in good fun and can easily turn into an open door to so much more, especially if you're already in a relationship.
If role-playing is something you've never tried before, Halloween seems to be a great way to test out the waters without getting rejected or feeling stupid. By changing your look and your actions, you're actually opening up a part of yourself that may have been untouched before. Creating this type of mask actually could reveal a lot about yourself and/or your partner. This holiday seems perfect for opening up those doors, especially because you never know where they might lead. Allowing yourself to let go of your fears and try something new isn't always an easy thing to do. When everyone else is already doing the same thing, it takes away some of the pressure and could expose yourself to something totally new and sexually exciting.
Everyone wants to look and feel sexy, and most of the costumes available are made to show off in that sense. While I see no issue with adults dressing up, the mature themed costumes should stay at adult themed parties. Leave the trick-or-treating to the children and stick with other adults if you plan on dressing in a revealing manner. Everyone can have fun without crossing lines that shouldn't be touched. Halloween can be a great holiday for everyone, as long as there's respect and understanding that there are some things young children don't need to be exposed to.
If you have young children that you're planning on taking out, there are many family friendly options you can look into if you're planning on dressing up. Keep the holiday about your kids and leave the sexy costumes for after bedtime. Everyone can win and enjoy the holiday without acting inappropriately.
