Single but not ready to mingle? Singles Day is here for some much-needed retail therapy.

It’s safe to say that this hasn’t been the easiest year for everyone — and that’s especially true for all the single folks out there. If dating pre-pandemic was hard, hooking up during a pandemic is even harder.

They say that absence might make the heart grow fonder, but that isn’t always the case — social distancing has meant we’ve had to come up with new words to describe our relationship status including “zumped” and “covidivorce.” (Although, we must say, the latter of the two does have a better ring to it than “consciously uncoupling.”)

But there is a bright spot: Singles Day 2020, the unofficial-but-kind-of-official celebration of being single is finally here. For us in the U.S., it’s the same day as Veterans Day, taking place annually on Nov. 11.

If you haven’t heard of Singles Day (11/11, get it?), here’s a brief breakdown from Vox: Singles Day was started in the ’90s and turned into a big one-day shopping holiday thanks to Alibaba, a Chinese e-commerce retailer.

It’s the biggest shopping holiday of the year, beating out Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, Singles Day sales broke a record, bringing in over $31 billion in sales.

Whether you’re single, in a relationship or clicked the “it’s complicated” button, you can appreciate all of the best Singles Day, Veterans Day and early Black Friday sales out there.
