Coronavirus ushers in virtual dating

*Collaborative post.

The Coronavirus pandemic has completely changed lives all over the world in the different. From homeschooling the kids and working from home to shopping more online, wearing face coverings, and being socially distant. For those on the dating scene, the changes are even more. Gone are the days of casual hookups. There are lots of new regulations and changes, and the dating scene is heavily affected. Coronavirus has changed the game of casual dating for the unforeseeable future. I wonder if the dating world will ever go back to how it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the whole working from home and less time in bars, clubs, parties, and other social gatherings, it may be impossible to meet someone new anytime soon. Which is why I see Coronavirus ushering in virtual dating.

How will the dating scene changed with the COVID-19 pandemic

Here are a few changes I see happening in the dating scene –

More online dating

For the time being, I see the dating scene being more online than offline. There will be more and more single people hooking up online. Dating sites like www.nostringsdating.net will be seeing an increase of signups, for those who want to meet new people regularly, but unable to due to spending more time at home and being socially distant in real life. I can imagine more dating sites implementing video calls to make it easier for long-distance hookups to ‘meet’ safely.

Date slow with video calls

Like I wrote in the popular post, goodbye fast fashion, hello slow fashion, the Coronavirus pandemic will allow singles date slow again. Gone are the days of quick hookups. I can imagine more dating sites implementing video calls to make it easier for long-distance hookups to ‘meet’ safely. The video calling feature will be a great addition to dating sites. It will allow singles video call each other before exchanging numbers. Singles will be able to date from the comfort of their homes and get to really know their prospective partner with no added stress of sex or being intimate in the early days. This feature will eliminate all distractions and allow couples to spend more time talking and take things slow. Which will enable them to figure out whether they are compatible quicker than in real life dating where there are all sorts of distractions.

Less casual sex

With the “date slow” comes less casual sex. Those going on a sex dating site looking for a quick hookup may struggle. With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, I see fewer people having casual sex in general. Those that will be having sex will be sticking to one partner, which is great. For those singles only affect sex with no strings, 2020 and beyond may be tough for them. With people being socially distant and spending more time at home reflecting, casual sex may be the last thing on many minds.

Are you single or dating? How are you currently finding the dating world? Are you interested in virtual dating or do you prefer meeting people in real life?

 

 

 

What to Wear on a First Date

I am happy to be off the dating market. I have been off for almost 10 years now and its been brilliant. I was not a huge fan of the whole dating “thingy”, I have never been a fan of anything new, and the dating world is all about “The New”, it felt so exhausting most of the time.

I am sure many women and men would agree with me on how draining the whole dating stuff is, but date we must! After all, love is a BEAUTIFUL thing.

Thanks to technology, dating is a lot easier now in 2017 than it was 10 years ago. Majority of the dating websites we have now were not available in my dating years. The most we had back then was social media – Facebook/Hi5, and those were still in the developing phases. Who remembers Hi5 by the way? Does anyone still go on it?

I am happy to see how much the online dating industry has evolved. It is super easy to meet someone you are compatible with online now thanks to the many dating websites available. But having a date is one thing, and what to wear on a date is another. Many women usually struggle with what to wear on a first date. They usually don’t want to show too much skin and send the wrong messages or come across as too keen, but they want to look attractive at the same time.

I have featured a couple of outfits I think would be great outfit ideas for a first date. Here are three ideas  –

A Sparkly Look

This is a great outfit idea for a dinner sort of first date.It is a stylish/dressy look and just shows the right amount of skin for a summer evening. Do you agree?

 

A  Relaxed Look

For a relaxed first date at the cinema or lunch in a restaurant, this outfit would be fit the part. It is stylish but not over the top. I think it would be an excellent choice for a first date in a relaxed location.

 

A Casual Look

This outfit would be a fantastic choice for casual/day-time date. It would suit a lunch date or any chilled location.

 

Can you remember what you had on for any of your first dates? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below. I love reading them.

Thanks for reading as always. Have a lovely day.
