Singles Awareness Day and Why We Love It

Valentine’s Day is finally over and, for those of us who are single, now is our time to shine. For the past few weeks, we’ve been bombarded with enough romance, love hearts and candles to make us gag. Now we can step out of the shadows and celebrate our single life. Our life that means there’s no snoring in bed, no hair grips everywhere and no one stealing the duvet.

Today is Single’s Awareness Day and, while it may not be taken quite as seriously as other holidays, that shouldn’t make it any less celebrated. The pessimistic (i.e. jealous) people, nickname today as S.A.D. when really, we’re just being thankful for our single, entire-tub-of-ice-cream-for-me life.

Turn up the Chaka Khan and belt out the Boys are Back in Town as we appreciate Singles Awareness Day and why we love it.
