Singles Day


Singles Day, otherwise known as Singles Awareness Day, is where single people get to feel proud about being single and stand up and say it’s alright. Singles day is a break from the commercialism of Valentine’s day with big companies always pushing their products on couples to buy for one another.

Singles day is celebrated on Feb. 15, the day after Valentine’s day, and is mostly used to pamper oneself instead of a significant other. People send themselves flowers, plan parties, and some even give gifts to their friends that are also single.

Being single is an advantage in many cases, unlike what many may perceive being unattached with another being. Single people don’t have to think of someone else when making important decisions, easier for a pursuit for healthier habits, and they tend to be more self-reliant than couples.

It’s not the end of the world if you happen to be single, it’s actually probably good for a lot of people to not feel like they have to put someone else before them. Being in a relationship is a great experience, but being single is a whole other world.
