What is October 3 on TikTok?

Some users are using the day to celebrate National Boyfriend Day, which can be an opportunity for people in romantic relationships to honor one another.

On Aug. 1, many boyfriends were all over TikTok honoring their girlfriends on National Girlfriend Day, and this holiday is designed for the favor to be returned.

Although plenty of people in committed relationships are posting to commemorate the day, TikTok is also full of single people who are posting about their desire to have someone to post about.

Some have even suggested that they're sad to be unable to participate in the trend, which has come to dominate many people's social media feeds.

National Boyfriend Day is just a single day, so users who may find themselves particularly distressed by it can take the opportunity to log out of TikTok altogether and spend the day touching grass or doing something else.

On Oct. 4, the internet will have moved on to another trend, and TikTok will be safe for the single people of the world.

some users have also taken the day as an excuse to honor the teen comedy classic Mean Girls.

The day is celebrated because it's explicitly called out in the film during a scene where Lindsey Lohan's Cady is asked by Aaron, her crush, what day it is. "It's October 3rd," she replies.
