It is fair to assume that dating during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is not at the top of any one’s list of priorities. In an attempt to stop the spread of the virus, Americans are going into self-isolation, and hunkering down for an indefinite period of time. However, those of us who live alone, and are single, face the bleak prospect of weeks, if not months, without any in-person contact.
A long-standing lack of physical, or emotional, contact may seem petty when it comes to preserving our mental health, but it is actually a necessary ingredient. In the midst of the this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, learn how to keep dating in a fun, safe, and responsible manner.
Choose A Select Few Individuals To Focus On
Often people will click on so many online dating profiles that they end up never going out on any dates at all, because they can’t make a definitive decision. That is an example of the perils of the paradox of an abundance of preference. So, this brand-new socially distant world could be a good motivator for you to be more selective with whom you want to invest your time and energy with.
Therefore, this is a situation in which sitting down and having a prolonged and meaningful visual online conversation with someone every few days could prove to be highly beneficial. Otherwise, with regular dating services you are easily frustrated by just answering online dating messages back and forth.
Schedule Your Virtual Dates
If you are using dating apps; you might have noticed that more and more matches suggest “virtual dates“. With virtual dating you’re essentially Face Timing or Zooming with each other, while both of you are sitting in the candlelight of your own living room while drinking wine, eating dinner, etc. This might not be borne out of necessity; as much as the cementing of an already existing trend in dating.
After all, these days people are too overworked and exhausted to commit themselves to meeting someone in person, and particularly if it involves a commute. Virtual dating is faster and easier. You simply pick a time, press a button, and then you are magically on a convenient non-commute onscreen coronavirus social-distance date.
Be Properly Clothed And Clean Your House
Just because you won’t be initially meeting someone in person doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t set the proper mood. Putting your best foot forward by dressing up a little bit; as well as setting some mood lighting, and selecting a good camera angle, will help you to possibly get a second virtual date with that person.
No New Intimate Involvements
Doctors do not suggest that you get sexually involved with someone during this infectious disease outbreak; even if it is with a person whom you currently reside with. Depending on how you look at it; that is not necessarily a negative thing. In the meantime; you can digitally send each other weekly love letters, have daily Face Time conversations, and/or coordinate some nightly video dinner dates.
Try not to be impatient about the situation, and remember that after this pandemic is over; there will be no limit to what you both can safely do with, for, or to each other.
