We are closed today so all of us can honor and celebrate Juneteenth.⁠

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, the date Union soldiers informed enslaved black people in Galveston, Texas that they were free — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed on Jan. 1, 1863 by Abraham Lincoln. ⁠

First celebrated in 1866, Juneteenth — also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day — is the oldest commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. On this day we pay tribute to the perseverance, determination, and sacrifice it took to achieve emancipation, and we commit ourselves to ending ongoing institutional and systemic oppression.⁠

It is about time we give Juneteenth the rightful reverence it deserves — this is the true independence date in American history on which ALL people were granted freedom. ⁠

On this day, Contactors.com employees

Dating and relationships are hard and one is bound to experience hopelessness and frustration when looking for an ideal partner. One such lonely soul is a 30-year-old man from UK’s Northamptonshire who says he hasn’t had a date in a decade! Fed up of the same, Alan Clayton decided to try something unconventional and ended up putting himself up for sale on Facebook in a desperate search for a girlfriend. In the ad posted on September 10, Alan listed himself as ‘free’ and in a ‘good/used condition’ after having no luck with traditional dating apps. On Facebook, the advert read: ‘Hello there ladies.

Is that somewhere in the midwest of the United States? If you want it to be.

How long has it been around? Eleven years.

And how is FarmVille doing? Not well. In fact, it’s about to be closed down.

That’s terrible. What’s the reason? Covid, the recession, Trump, the rise of veganism? Declining popularity and the fact that Flash games will no longer be supported on Facebook from the end of the year.

I’m not with you. I gather that. FarmVille is an award-winning game made by US-based developer Zynga; a digital simulation of a farming community, a computerised Ambridge. At one point, it was the most popular game on Facebook with more than 80 million players. But times change.

Man puts himself up for sale on Facebook after struggling on dating apps

A man listed himself on Facebook in an attempt to find a girlfriend after failing to find love on dating apps.

Alan Clayton, 30, described himself as “free” and in “good condition” on the items for sale page – an unusual attempt which has left his inbox brimming with prospective matches.

The lorry driver, from Kettering, has only been on one date so far, which sadly didn’t work out, but hopes the novel approach will attract more Northants-based singletons.

After seeing his friends settle down and get married, he now wants this for himself, and admits he hasn’t had a girlfriend since school.

He put himself out there on social media. (SWNS)

Speaking about his decision, Clayton explains: “I’ve tried conventional apps like Tinder and Plenty of Fish but nothing has really happened so I went to sign up to e-Harmony.

“They asked me lots of questions and I

A  single man has taken a novel route to finding a date after deciding that dating apps weren’t working for him.

30-year-old Alan Clayton from Kettering listed himself in the Items for Sale section on Facebook, with the description “free” and in a “good/used condition”.

Clayton told SWNS: “I’ve tried conventional apps like Tinder and Plenty of Fish but nothing has really happened so I went to sign up to e-Harmony.

“They asked me lots of questions and I suddenly thought why don’t I just advertise myself online on a bargain adverts page.”

Since Clayton shared the ad on 10 September it has been shared thousands of times and his inbox has been flooded with messages. 

“I was up past midnight reading all of the messages of support from people. I’ve had women show some interest but it has not really led to anything,”

A lonely single man looking for love has been inundated with offers of a date after he advertised himself on an ‘Items for Sale’ Facebook page.

Alan Clayton, 30, from Kettering, listed himself as ‘free’ and in a ‘good/used condition’ after becoming frustrated with his lack of success on traditional dating apps.

The lorry driver decided to take matters into his own hands by posting on the local classified ads page on Facebook, and was amazed when his inbox was flooded with messages from women across the UK.

So far it has only led to one date, which unfortunately didn’t work out, but Alan is hopeful his unorthodox approach will help him find the love of his life.
