The Corona virus has quickly swept across the globe, infecting millions of people in hundreds of different countries. And even if you don’t have the virus, it is very likely that your life is being affected by it; most governments are warning people to self-isolate and stay inside, even if they aren’t showing symptoms. But what does this mean for dating?

The virus can be passed by holding hands and kissing, and many date locations are temporarily closed. So dating may be a little harder than normal – but if you really like someone, it is possible to date them while staying safe and healthy. Here are our top do’s and don’ts for dating during the Corona health crisis.

COVID19- Dating Do’s

Do use our dating site to match with other health conscious singles. This allows you to create a solid bond with someone like-minded, and you definitely won’t catch the virus this way!

Do sign-up for our Singles Mingle events, which are low-pressure virtual Speed Dating events.

Do meet in person if you have already met before and neither of you are presenting symptoms.

Do meet up at a quiet location (such as your home or the park), rather than a busy café or bar.

Do wash your hands frequently if you decide to meet up in person.

Do an elbow bump when you meet up, instead of shaking hands or kissing!

Do wear a mask.

COVID19- Dating Don’ts

Don’t spend the whole date talking about the COVID-19 virus. It is the main subject of conversation for most people right now, so a break will probably be welcomed.

Don’t feel bad if you want to cancel a date. Just let the person know as soon as you decide you don’t want to, and consider rearranging when you feel safer being in a crowd.

Don’t stay at a venue if you notice people coughing.

Don’t quiz your date about when they last coughed, especially if they seem perfectly healthy.

Don’t lean in for a kiss at the end of the night if you are meeting the person for the first time – stick to a wink and smile!

To encourage safe social distancing, please post a picture of yourself rocking any decorative face masks you may made or bought.
