Benefits of online dating

*Collaborative post.

The pandemic has led to an influx of virtual first dates and it is now really popular. Many singles are mingling from the comfort of their homes and meeting different people, which is amazing. However, it can be a bit daunting if you have never had a virtual date before. It feels almost the same way as a first online interview, you don’t know what to expect, but with the way things are at the moment, the pros of virtual dating massively outweigh the cons in my eyes.

Benefits of online dating

Here are some of the many benefits of online dating –

You get to meet different people from the comfort of your home

Like I said previously, the pros of online dating massively outweigh the cons, and this benefit is one of the main benefits of online dating. You can meet singles in any location you are interested in and you get to meet more online than you would normally come across in-person. If you are interested in meeting singles in Cambridgeshire for example, all you need to do is to sign up with a Cambridgeshire Dating Site, and then you have access to locals who are single in the area.

It is easier to date from home

With the current state of affairs, it is easier and possibly a lot safer to date from home. Video dating is becoming the norm for first virtual dates. so all you need to do is get dressed like you would normally do for an in-person date, have a good internet connection and device, a quiet spot at home, and you are all set for your date.

It is easy to get started

You don’t have to wait too long to join the online dating scene, it is super easy to get started. Dating websites like this Cambridgeshire Dating website allow new sign ups to get started in less than a minute. You don’t have to be tech savvy to date online. It is a lot easier than you think.

If you are single and looking mingle, you are reading the right post. Here are 3 tips for a first virtual date:

  • Dress for the occasion

You should dress like you are going for an actual date outside your home. Don’t do virtual first dates in your loungewear or pyjamas. Dress for the occasion and get the right outfit and makeup on. First impressions are everything and you should look your best for your first virtual date.

  • Don’t take yourself too seriously

It us likely going to be a tiny bit awkward on a virtual first date, so prepare to laugh it off and relax a little. Go with the flow and try to not take yourself too seriously, Dating should be enjoyed and not endured.

  • Have a list

The best part about online dating is that you can have a list of questions you may want to ask with you. This is a great way to ensure you ask all the right questions. You could also include ice-breaker questions or conversation starters to help you when you become nervous.

Happy dating!

 

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?
