Dating During COVID 19: How Creative Can You Get?

Let’s face it!

It’s hard being single in times of COVID! So, for those who are blessed to be with your significant other during a viral pandemic, I salute you!

As challenging as it is surviving a viral pandemic as a single person, I’m sure it’s JUST as challenging maintaining a connection with someone during a viral pandemic. Granted, you’re not married or have a “live-in bae”. (Although, that can be challenging too, if you crave “space”.)

Typical dates involve some activities that has crowds, such as concerts, movies, dinner at a nice restaurant, etc.

With COVID lingering, it’s forced a stop to public gatherings, but it doesn’t negate the fact that you can still practice social distancing and still have a good gotdamn time with someone new you’re getting to know or someone you’ve invested some months with. It’s all about being creative but safe.
