February 15 is Singles Awareness Day. Though some people celebrate it on February 14, the actual "holiday" is on February 15. If you’re wondering what it’s all about, for those people not dating or coupled up, Singles Awareness Day is all about celebrating and embracing you and your single life. Even though the acronym is SAD, it’s *not* at all about being single and sad, but about recognizing what it’s like to be single and happy. Instead of being cynical about your single status around Valentine’s Day, it’s a time to appreciate it.

After all, once you meet someone, that’s that, so you may as well make the most of your single days. Because, TBH, they’re really great when you think about it, and there are many benefits of being single — you can do whatever you want to do, when you want to do it; discover new activities and hobbies that make you happy; become more self-aware and self-confident; learn how to appreciate your own company, and so on. You may hear people say that you must love yourself before you love someone else, and it’s true. If you’re not happy on your own, how will you be happy with someone?

All that said, people are tweeting about Singles Awareness Day and sharing what they love about being single. Chances are, you’ll be able to relate to several of them — I know I can!
