Inaugural National Singles Day to be held on September 17
Single Australians now have their own special day following the announcement that the first ever National Singles Day will be held on September 17 this year.
National Singles Day will encourage singles to form new networks, organise and participate in their own singles events and activities andhopefully pluck up the courage and talk to someone they are attracted to and not wonder ‘what might have been'.
The inaugural National Singles Day will be more symbolic than anything else according to National Singles Day convener and Yes I am Single founder Evan Diacopoulos.
"It is a prompt for singles around Australia to be proactive and get outthere and meet new people whether it is by going out with their single friends, attending singles events or by purchasing a singles identification badge from the Yes I am Single website where they can form their own clubs and organise their own events," he says.
After purchasing a badge from www.yis.com.au, singles are givenmembership to the site providing them access to a series of forums where they can chat to singles with similar interests, form their own clubs and organise and participate in their own local National Singles Day events and impromptu get-togethers.
"National Singles Day should be a catalyst for singles to start expanding their social networks and forming their own interest groups and planning activities and meeting new people," Diacopoulos adds.
The singles identification badge is a subtle and unobtrusive tool that lets other singles know singles are unattached and looking for love or companionship.
"Yes I am Single seeks to give fate a helping hand by giving single people the confidence to go up and talk to likeminded singles in natural, everyday settings," Diacopoulos says.
"How often do we hear of people wondering whether or not that person they are attracted to and too shy to talk to at the local gym or bar is single and looking for romance - this will help answer that question once and for all."
Badges can be purchased for a one off cost of $22.95 (inc GST) from the Yes I am Single website at www.yis.com.au
