Single people, it's time to get excited. Why? Because it's National Singles Week.
Yep, every third full week of September is set aside to celebrate all the single ladies and single guys, according to the Times Union.
We know what you're thinking: couples have one day (Valentine's Day!) and single folks get a whole week? But really, why shouldn't single people have the full seven days? After all, it's not easy to field older relatives' endless questions about settling down at family function and it's definitely not fun having to endure all those cheesy couples photos on Facebook.
So to mark the occasion, we decided to ask our readers to weigh in with the little things they appreciate most about being single. From loading up the TiVo with whatever you want, to having the blankets all to yourself, click through the slideshow below to see what they had to say, then head to the comments and weigh in with what you think are the biggest perks of being relationship-free.
