It is estimated that there are 82 million single and unmarried adults in the United States. National Singles Week is celebrated the third full week in September (Sunday through Saturday). This is your week to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E the lives and contributions of unmarried and single Americans!
National Singles Week was started by the Buckeye Singles Council in Ohio in the 1980s. When that organization folded, the promotion of National Unmarried & Single Americans Week was taken over by Janet Jacobsen, Scottsdale, AZ, coordinator of the National Singles Press Association.
The week is now widely observed during the third full week of September as "Unmarried and Single Americans Week," an acknowledgment that many unmarried Americans do not identify with the word "single" because they are parents, have partners or are widowed.
There is no shame in being single.
