In case you aren’t aware, a large contingent of your cohorts across the country (I among them) did not celebrate Valentine’s Day with all the happy couples crowding candle-lit restaurants and moonlit walks.
Singles Awareness Day is in the spirit of other acknowledgments of the unmarried and single, such as “National Singles Week,” started in the 1980s. This raises the question of how to appropriately celebrate a holiday that is half snarky nose-thumbing at the commercialism and anxiety surrounding Valentine’s traditions. I’m all for a heady celebration with friends, as long as it doesn’t turn into a “Lonely Hearts Club” on Singles Awareness Day.
A night out: Dinner and drinks is always a good battle for those who want to celebrate being unattached, especially if you’re experiencing some residual loneliness or social anxiety about not having a Valentine.
A night in: My own personal preference is snarfing down brownies and watching kung fu flicks. Ironic anti-Valentine’s: No matter what generalized anxiety everyone has about being single, the absolute best part about Valentine’s has always been the cute, funny and often wildly inappropriate cards we send to one another.
Whatever you end up doing on February 14th next year, single or paired, maybe the very existence of Singles Awareness Day should give us some pause about how we think about ourselves as individuals within our relationships.

Instead we were celebrating our unabashed single status in commemoration of Singles Awareness Day.
That commemoration, however, is celebrated in September, safely away from the happy couples making doe eyes at one another in February.
But you’re equally justified to down a few margaritas with friends and mercilessly mocking unrealistic romantic comedies. Maybe a better appreciation of our independent value (and that of our partners) will help us have better relationships and more happiness overall. That’s a massive demographic shift over a relatively short period of time, and it signals a transformation of culture driven by the feminism of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Most people celebrating their singleness were elbowing over couples at candle-lit restaurants and clubs.

On February 15, he was valiantly celebrating Singles Awareness Day by watching movies containing lots and lots of explosions.

A growing number of people don’t see long-term relationships as their ideal anymore, or at least they feel less anxiety about being single in general. But burning some old mix CDs or a couple’s photo of the two of you in Vegas that one time really is immature.
