The concept here is pretty simple and straight forward. Not unlike the wedding band which visually signifies that an individual is married, or a pink ribbon expressing breast cancer support, this GreenBand (bracelet) represents the single status of the man or woman wearing it.
In a world where the single adult population has never been larger, and finding that significant other has never been more complex - this GreenBand is intended and designed specifically to be that nudge, that ice breaker, that indication and green light to walk up to someone and say the scariest word of all time, "Hi".
The GreenBand is quickly becoming a common denominator among single people across North America, help spread the word and let it serve as a great conversation starter :) From coffee shop line-ups to pub & lounge scenes, its the ultimate ice braker!
"What does your green bracelet mean?"
"Oh this… it means I'm a catch! [LOL] Actually it means I'm single and potentially looking to settle down, just not willing to settle. How about you? No wedding band, no GreenBand, what's your story?" Simple.
"...Our society is very familiar and comfortable visually expressing its status, whether permanent or temporary, we're usually quite proud to wear it on our sleeve.
When we get married, we wear a wedding band, when we conquer or support breast cancer, we display a pink ribbon and if we're a diabetic we wear a medical tag to indicate that in the event of an emergency.
On the off chance that one passes out in the middle of the street, and a witness calls 911 to save them, its only fair that the attractive (potentially) paramedic tending to their aid, know not only their vitals but also the fabulous fact that they are single and looking! "
TV producer, entrapreneur & Author, Maggie Dorf, explains in this very funny and entertaining easy read, why she feels single people should identify themselves to each other externally.
BUT, yes there is a 'but', being single is not the only prerequisite to wearing this green singles band.... no no, that would be too easy and right up there with posting a 22+ year old picture of yourself on eHarmony or renewing your gym membership for the 6th year in a row when you never go. In order to proudly visually announce that you are on the market and a great catch, you must first ask yourself if you meet a short and simple list of emotional standards. What list? What standards?
Being single is not a disease, its a privilege and to some degree a responsibility to yourself as a person. If you've worked hard to become the man or woman you are today and feel proud, don't settle for anything less in your partner. Having said that, don't hide either! There are millions of single adults in today's world, many of whom are not looking for a serious relationship (which is great and certainly has its place in life), however statistics show by a landslide that the vast majority of singles are.
If you are single, sane, happy and looking... wear it proudly on your sleeve.
