Even during a pandemic, singles have a natural desire to want to find that special someone. As proof, users of virtual dating apps such as Tinder, Bumble and Match have increased in record numbers since early March.
Dating is intimidating, even in good times. Doing so virtually can ease nerves and allow time to get to know someone before meeting up. Several dating apps enable messaging and video chats comfortably from home. Some also offer expert advice on virtual dating, like #DatingWhileDistancing created by Match.
Be upfront and honest about your feelings on meeting in person and practicing social distancing.
