7 Reasons Why South Africa Needs A Singles’ Day!


Happy single awareness day to all of us that see Valentine’s day as another Thursday. Don’t get me wrong – I am pretty sure we all love ‘love’, but let’s be honest with each other. Do we need a designated day each year where it’s pink, red and teddy bears everywhere?


Perhaps, we need a holiday to celebrate being single. Because being single is just as awesome as being in a fully committed relationship. You are independent and free to do what you want. This opens you up to self-discovery and finding out more about who you truly are.

#1. Grab your bestie and make use of those couple specials.

But what’s the best perk about Valentine’s day? Number 7 on our list of course.

More importantly, please don’t take the above list all that seriously. We’re not actively hating on couples and people in love. All we wanted to do was just show a bit of love to all those singles out there. 


So, what is your take on Valentine’s day? Are you yay or nay for it? Let us know in the comments section below. 🙂
