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.
Even though single people may feel left out in many ways, there’s also a lot of great perks to being single! When you’re single you have the freedom to live by your own rules. You are able to take time to learn about yourself.
So, here’s to all you single and fabulous people out there. Get yourself a cocktail and celebrate National Singles Day this year with these funny memes and quotes about being single you can totally relate to.
