I am in good company then because I also have a mid-2010 MBP. Still runs Snow Leopard for the same reasons you gave, which is that the applications I use work fine on this version, but also because it is a loose media server, and more recent versions of macOS have changed or removed function I have with settings in apache.conf to serve directory listings on external drives, and I haven't yetfigured out how to defeat the newer "security enhancements." 

When HS was first released, I swear it wasn't supported on 2010, and there was the typical expected uproar from customers, and a High Sierra patcher tool was quickly released by an independent developer (possibly ) allowing models back to 2008 to install it, But according to MacTracker, High Sierra is supported on 2010 MBP.  Maybe I had it wrong, maybe Apple had a change of heart.
