Singaporeans Clad in Black to Fight the Stigma of Being Single on Valentine's Day
February, February the month of love or so it’s called. That time of the year when everyone suddenly seems to be in a relationship (note: doting over each other). Red hearts, chocolates and roses suddenly fill the groceries and it is almost impossible to get a reservation at any restaurant.
As more and more Singaporeans aged 25 to 29 are choosing to put their career first and stay single, it’s about time someone broke the V-day stereotype.
20 single Singaporeans went around Raffles Place yesterday (February 8, 2016) to start a conversation about being single.
“I was in the area yesterday handing out roses to everyone to tell people that it’s okay to be single and we should embrace it.” said Josephine, a 26-year old Marketing Executive. The Black Rose was a cheeky twist on the traditional red rose associated with Valentine’s Day.
“This is the single generation and we need to update archaic concepts like Valentine’s Day,” explains Gursheel Dhillon, Director of Vanilla Luxury the creative agency behind the successful singles only V-Day party, Valentine Vendetta.
So if you don’t have a date this Valentine’s Day, embrace it! February 14 is no longer just for couples. Meet Singapore’s most eligible singles at one of the city’s most popular venues, Skyline.
Spend the night celebrating the single life by partying 45 levels up in the sky in a fun, relaxed and most importantly - couple-free environment!
