Today is the day to be lonely

You single?  Well TODAY is your special day.  

“Singles Day” is a 2009 ecommerce idea of Jack Ma of the Alibaba Group; highlights a day to treat yourself…now the largest on-line shopping day on the planet.  

We’re estimated to “treat ourselves” by spending over $70 BILLION! (last year’s sales were up over 20%) mostly due to the over 200 Million single adults in China.  Over 45% of America’s adults are single.  

The US city with the most singles? (%)  San Francisco, at 44.7%, NYC is #3, Philly #16 and McAllen Texas rounds out the top 100.   

Largest Singles city in China? Shanghai!  
Country?  Sweden; over half of their adults are single.  

Enjoy your special day for a table for one, with drinks for two.
