Happy National Singles Day on September 22!
National Singles Day is September 22, and it’s time to celebrate — and laugh it off.
Considering single people have to endure going to countless weddings and engagement parties, it’s only fitting that we should at least get a day too. After all, being single can be something to celebrate as well — contrary to what our inquiring friends and relatives would like us to believe.
That doesn’t mean being single is necessarily easy.
The good news though is that the stigma of being single is not nearly as bad as it used to be. Thanks to shows like Sex and the City, single people — especially single women — can still feel powerful and complete, regardless of relationship status.
Let’s be honest, companionship is nice too. Just because you are totally comfortable being on your own, doesn’t mean you’re immune to the desire to fall in love either. We all want love, even the most cynical of us.
Like most things, even dating for single people has transitioned into the digital age. Dating apps like Tinder and Bumble are more popular than ever. That doesn’t mean they’re for everyone.
Even though single people may feel left out in many ways, there’s also a lot of great perks to being single! If you’re a single man or woman, you have the freedom to live by your own rules. You are able to take time to learn about yourself.
What are your hopes and dreams? What do you want to accomplish?
So, here’s to all you single and fabulous people out there. Get yourself a cosmo cocktail and celebrate National Singles Day this September 22 with these funny memes about being single and being single quotes you can totally relate to.
