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.
HB has compiled a small list of ideas to help you become creative with dating during a viral pandemic.
- Walking trails
- Picnic (Warm weather, of course)
- Cook a meal at home for your date or simply bring it to him/her.
- Outdoor dining
- Play board games
- Road trip
- Vacation to a secluded place
- Take a walk in a park
- Hang at the beach
- Go old school with hand-written love letters, if you really want to empress and hold on to them. 🙂
- Set up a virtual date (video messaging)
