Singles Day????

82
Found 10th Nov 2017
hotukdeals.com/sin…day

Can we also have
a couples day?
a widowers day?
a LGBT day?
A unhappily married day?
A happily married day?
An alien day?

and just for the odd member something like (so not to exclude other types)
"A dog stole a picnic when not on leash day"

When will it end?
Yes I know the deals won't exclude anyone from buying but come on where is the common sense that this sort of "publicity" is acceptable.

It isn't singles day, it is armistice day. End of.


But the SJW and millennials and PC Brigade don't want to remember wars and give their thanks to those that gave their lives and those that gave their kin for the freedoms they have now.

All they care about is themselves.

ts not created by a retailer, it was created by universities and grew from there, of course businesses hijacked it. Also its not a celebration of being single at all, what a junk article.



we have days for everything Phil so if people want to have one for singles in China why not.

And we are both old and grumpy


I wouldn't say you are old as that, for me, is disrespectful

I wouldn't say I'm grumpy unless you class being wise, experienced and educated in life as being grumpy
Phil, I understand this is a foreign event.

OK but why is it here (included on HUKD) we live in the UK/Europe and yes we buy globally

My point is in today's era everyone has to act responsibly and not upset specific race/gender/identities

And yet we allow "A singles day" but not any other "day"

My sincere apologies (only old people will understand and accept that as a heartfelt apology with meaning)

I'm not here to upset anyone but to challenge current political correctness.

It's gone mad
The world has gone mad I say
fail to see what this has got to do with armistice day
but i guess some ppl love something to moan about
what next ban ppl born on 11-11 from celebrating their birthday ?

I totally agree. Was having this discussion the other day with my kid, trying to explain why Halloween wasn't happy too. The world is going mad

I honestly don't see why it's important or why anybody would care, so I'm out.

The irony of people in this thread asking “what they teach in schools these days”..... the question is what were they teaching at school in your day....

Cliche classes were frequent I assume....

Lesson one

“PC Brigade” - use this liberally and frequently when anything is done you don’t like or understand

That's what they teach kids these days. 2+2=4 communist sums.
haven't we already got a singles day? it's called valentines day
@mutley1 I thought you'd be championing op's odd member suggestion
How about a "good, decent and respecting human" day?

Where is that singles thread again here? HUKDD's? Hot UK deals dating has a nice ring to it. We could do dates with discounted restaurants, discounted experiences and then if it went well always discounts going for those "adult products".
Steps away slowly to start reading flirting 101.

Not really. Not that easy when you come with a child too. Even though he is pretty much grown up. When you've been with someone for half your life the idea of someone else filling that void takes a bit of adjustment.

I wouldn't look at it has trying to fill a void, no one can replace anyone. You could still put yourself out there and find someone to share memories with.

Yeah it takes some adjustment, was with my partner also for almost half my life, then she sadly passed away suddenly three years ago. You never think about being single again, or even feel that you may be ready again to face that scary dating world again. Being a widower at 38 is quite an adjustment.

Just three years since my husband died too. On his birthday too the selfish git. I wasn't ready to be a widow in my forties. It can be quite daunting can't it?
