History of National Bae Day

There is no clear explanation for why or how National Bae Day came to be. We could tell the novelty day was created on the Internet because it is tied to National Boyfriend Day. Although no single source is officially credited with initiating this momentous day.

Dating is a stage in romantic relationships in which two people meet socially with the goal to evaluate each other’s desirability as a prospective partner in a future intimate relationship. It is a type of courtship in which the pair engages in social activities either as a couple or with others. Dating procedures and practices, as well as the names used to describe them, vary greatly from society to society and over time. While the term has multiple connotations, the most common usage relates to two people testing their compatibility romantically by going on dates with each other. People can date over the phone or the internet, or they can meet in person, thanks to current technology.

‘Bae’ is a slang term of endearment commonly used among Black adolescents. It became popular in 2013 and 2014 as a result of social media and hip-hop and R&B lyrics. It primarily refers to a person’s love partner, particularly a girlfriend or boyfriend, but it has also been used as a broad term of fondness for everything, even inanimate items. The term can be used in both male and female contexts. The term evolved from an abbreviation of the words ‘baby’ or ‘babe.’
