So SAD (Singles Awareness Day)

Dateless yesterday on Valentines Day? Envied couples and lovers who hold hands in public while kissing? Worry not! The day after Valentines Day would be dedicated for all single men and women out there.

Taken from Google

Single Awareness Day (SAD) is a humorous holiday, celebrated on February 15 (although some prefer the 13th or the 14th to get away from the commercialism associated with the 14th. single people gather to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status. Some want to remind romantic couples that they don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate life

Common activities during Singles Awareness Day include, single events, traveling, volunteering, treating oneself to popular activities, gathering of family and friends, and gift giving for oneself. On this day many people wear green, as it is considered to be the 'opposite' of red. Another popular option is an absence of color (black), to symbolize an absence of celebration.

If you have a broken heart, there are 7 things to do on Single Awareness Day

1. First thing in the morning, type (or write) at least 5-7 things about your life that you are thankful for. Try to stretch it up to 10. There is a great chance that at the end of this exercise you’ll become thankful for being single.

2. Being single is your present relationship status, not a permanent diagnosis. This is a temporary condition that can always be improved. Be aware that there are many ways to meet great people – your future is in the future.

3. Avoid visiting places where you might see many couples. While many of them might not be even so happy together, it would be better for you to stay away.

4. Avoid spending time in a “men haters” club. Spinning negativity with unhappy and angry females and talking about how bad men are won’t make you feel better. Men are not bad; you just had an unfortunate experience.  The fact that your past relationship (or two or three) did not work, does not prove that you’ll be single forever. It just means that your time is not now.

5. Remember, you are not alone! There are millions of people who are Single, Aware, and Happy.

6. There is a price for everything and sometimes being by yourself is a way to pay for your freedom – the ability to do what you want or not to do what you don’t want.

7. If you think that this day is about love, then go ahead and spoil yourself the way you would like to be spoiled. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself and who cares that you did it for you?

I got these ideas and tips here and here.

Enjoy being single while it lasts. XD
