Satisfied Staying Single Day – February 11, 2023

Satisfied Staying Single Day is an annual event that takes place on February 11. With only a few days before Valentine’s Day, single people can enjoy a day alone or without being involved in a relationship.

With so many days on the calendar dedicated to love, why not dedicate one to being single? If you’re single and happy that way, then rejoice in your relationship status. Celebrate Satisfied Staying Single Day to honor your single status and demonstrate your individuality.

History of Satisfied Staying Single Day

Wellcat’s Thomas and Ruth Roy have been credited with launching the Satisfied Staying Single Day, however, there is no indication of which year it was commemorated in. The holiday’s originator came up with the idea of having it close to Valentine’s Day so that some singles could show the rest of the world that being single is fine and that it’s okay to save money by not buying flowers or sweets unless it’s for yourself.

Dancing alone, not going on a date, and not spending too much money on a partner are all examples of the single relationship status. Singles no longer have to be looked upon with pitying or awkward looks. Demonstrate to the world that you are happy being single and unattached. Now is the time to be proud and confident about your single status.

Since the beginning of time, there have been those who choose to dance through life without a partner. Why not set aside a day to commemorate that one-of-a-kind state of bliss? Be your own love of your life, treat yourself to that delicious meal, gorgeous flowers, and any other gift — you deserve it!

How frequently do you get pitying glances, propositions, and offers to set you up on a blind date? Don’t people realize you’re happy and pleased with your life as is? Nope, they don’t know. They truly believe they are assisting you. You can start showing all your friends and family that there is nothing wrong with being single on Satisfied Staying Single Day.
