Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and as we all know by now, that means our Instagram feeds are about to be taken over by #CoupleGoals galore. From rose petal trails, to gloaty girls and an abundance of ‘date nights with bae’ posts, us single gals (or just the non-gushy amongst us) prefer to stay OFF the ‘gram while we Netflix and chill…alone. Ngl though, we’d rather have a self-care day than a throwback V-Day with our ex…
Sometimes, for all us single ladies, Valentine’s Day can make it feel like we’re the ONLY single ones out there. Now, while we were well aware this wasn’t in fact true, (shout out to all the single pringles!) we had no idea how many people were ACTUALLY single!
Have you ever wondered how many other single people there were in the world like, right now? Or in the UK? Or more specifically, in your city?! Well, we’ve done some digging and we now know ALL the juicy deets. If you fancy finding out just how many single guys and gals there are in your city, then keep on scrolling…
