On Valentine’s Day, a time when some of our readers could feel isolated, we have pulled some uplifting data to show how we could be seeing a nation of empowered single people on the rise. This also coincides with a current twitter trend to share the hashtag #whyIamsingle when detailing the personal reasons as to why living life as a single person is an active lifestyle choice.
