Positive changes to the dating game during the pandemic…yes, really!

How to date during the coronavirus lockdown

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all, but if you are single and looking to meet a partner it’s realistic to say that you are facing additional challenges. However, research shows that the coronavirus has had some positive effects on the world of dating.

Life for many has a slower pace thanks to the forced shift in lifestyle, giving relationships more time to develop slowly. Lockdown saves us time, no long commutes to the office or overseas business trips, resulting in the opportunity of having more time to talk. We are all in this together and there’s certainly plenty to chat about. It’s likely that we’ll share our thoughts, revealing our true feelings and so getting to know each other better from the start. This makes a strong base from which to build a relationship.

By now we’re all familiar with Zoom meetings and ‘FaceWine’ sessions, in fact it’s amazing how quickly we have adapted to virtual communication. Where needs must…. A video chat, drinks and even virtual dinner dates can be great fun, leaving us feeling connected. Being face-to-face on a screen, we really see the person we’re speaking with, and naturally give them our full attention. Did you know that within seconds of seeing someone, our brain assesses two things about a potential partner, both their physical appeal and their personality?

Remember the awkward dilemma of who should pay the bill on a first date? Another positive result of virtual dating during the coronavirus lockdown is that aside from saving money, there is no bill over which to argue. Of course, no worrying about whether or not to say yes to going back to their place for that nightcap… and by the time you do, you’re going to know each other so much better.

We appreciate that humans are sociable and thrive on interaction, and we understand that social distancing is unnatural and can lead to loneliness. However, it really is possible to stay connected during lockdown and it most definitely is possible to start a long-lasting and meaningful relationship.
