Singles Awareness Day is a day to celebrate singles and their contribution to society. Since the first Singles Awareness Day in 1939, there have been many changes in how people view unmarried life. These days, it’s not uncommon for couples to live together before marriage or even get married without children at all! On this day, we want to take some time out of our busy lives as married people and single folks alike and say “thank you” to those who chose not to marry on February 15th.
WHEN IS SINGLES AWARENESS DAY 2022?
Singles Awareness Day is a day to celebrate single living. It’s the 15th of February, just one month after Valentine’s!
History Of Singles Awareness Day
A day of love can bring out the worst in people. For singles, it is an especially cruel reminder that they are alone on this earth with only their thoughts for company and no one to share them all through Valentine’s Day dinner at home or even just over some chocolate ice cream after dinner- yet there’s always next year!
Like all great movements, Singles Awareness Day was created from feelings of isolation. Around 2001 Dustin Barnes decided to create a day for his group of friends in order to try and find joy in being single rather than drowning their sorrows with alcohol or other vices that are commonplace on these evenings when you’re expected at parties but can’t make it because they don’t want people thinking negatively about them – so he began planning gatherings where attendees could enjoy each others’ company without any strings attached!
Dustin carried the tradition from his high school on to Mississippi State University, where he could not only play football for coach Dan Mullen but also influence academic culture.
Now adults of all ages celebrate the day as a reminder that you don’t need to be in love with someone else or have their approval before you can show it.

Singles Awareness Day Activities
- Practice self-care
Have you been neglecting your self-care? This could be because it’s a hectic time and we’re all looking for ways to relax. So go on, treat yourself! But make sure not to overdo it; 20 minutes is good as well but if it’s more than 2 hours then don’t worry about explaining why later (unless someone asks).
- Take a solo trip
Solo travel is an invigorating way to boost confidence. The journey can be one of self-discovery and awareness, creating opportunities for experiences you would have otherwise overlooked as well as meeting new people in different ways that are unique only to this experience!
- Attend a speed dating event
Tinder may be a thing of the past, but you can still find your forever love in person. So stop swiping and go out there!
5 FACTS ABOUT CHOCOLATE THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
- It was used as a currency
Cacao beans were so valuable to early Mesoamericans that they were used as currency, and you can still find their marks on pottery from the Classic Period (250- 900 AD).
- It requires patience
Many people are unaware that cocoa beans take a very long time to grow. Farmers must wait four or five years for their first taste of success, but in return, they get an amazing product with tons of health benefits!
- The Swiss are obsessed with it
Switzerland leads the world in chocolate consumption with an average of 22.36 lbs per person, which is more than double that of second-place Mexico at 10 pounds!
- The English revolutionized it
The early chocolate bars were nothing more than a milky substance that was sweet but did not have much flavor. In 1842, an English company by the name of Cadburys created their very first ever bar made from cocoa beans mixed with milk and sugar to create what we know today as “chocolate.”
- It’s kind of a vegetable
Theobroma cacao, also known as the cocoa bean or simply chocolate is an evergreen plant that grows on trees. The fruit of these plants is dried and roasted before they can be consumed by humans in order for their healthy nutrients like magnesium iron (Mg), potassium phosphorus (K+P) calcium to mix evenly with fatty acids so we get a smoother texture when eating it!
WHY WE LOVE SINGLES AWARENESS DAY
- You meet more people on your own
It is true that in today’s world, more people are willing to talk about their problems. This could be because you’re more likely than ever before (and maybe it has something to do with technological advances) but either way, I think these conversations can help us all grow stronger as individuals by helping someone else out when they need some reassurance or guidance on what might work for them too
I find myself feeling better after speaking my mind; this allows me not only to act like my truest self which ultimately makes life worth living!
- You can become the best version of yourself
Reading is one way to spend your spare time when you’re on your own. It can be an escape from the pressures of everyday life, or it could give you new ideas for how people in different fields do things that are relevant to where YOU want YOUR career path to go!
- You have complete freedom
What are you planning on eating tonight? Where would be the best place to vacation this summer, if money were no object of course? And can I get those jeans for myself too, please! When single it’s all about what makes us happy so go ahead and do whatever tickles your fancy whether or not someone else likes it too- trust me they will thank themselves later when their bank account isn’t looking quite as rough anymore 😉
Singles Awareness Day is a day where it’s all about you and nobody else. It can be the opportunity to grow as an individual, or simply a chance for us not to take life so seriously by having fun! There are many ways that we can celebrate this wonderful occasion such as speed dating events, reading some of our favorite books from childhood, and making our own candy bars!
