To be honest, we all got a bit excited when the government unveiled their roadmap to getting back to normal, didn’t we? The whole Covid-19 situation has been tough on everybody. But I think there are a couple of small blessings we can take from it (and I do not mean this to belittle the memory of anyone who has sadly lost their lives or had their lives irreversibly changed). Working from home looks set to become more normal now which is great. On the dating front, people are FINALLY coming around to the idea of online dating. I’ve seen a few really cute and inventive ways people have been dating in the pandemic. In this post, I would like to share with you some tips I have picked up during my time as an online dater.
Use a local dating site
With dating sites becoming more popular, you would think that it would be easier to find a match on one of the bigger dating sites, but the geo-filters still seem to be an issue for me. This is why I prefer to use a local dating site like Dorset Dating Site. The great thing is, you automatically have something in common. It’s always helpful to have a starting point for conversation. Another thing I like about local dating sites is that their profiles are a bit more detailed. This is great for you being able to express exactly what you want, and also being able to express exactly what you are like.
Your first date online
As positive as it is that we will start returning to normal soon, I can completely understand that there are people that still do not feel safe. If you are not quite up to going out in public just yet, there are plenty of ways you can date online for a bit until you feel safe. One of my personal favorite virtual date ideas is to have a Skype call while you are eating the same takeaway. This is just like being out for dinner. You could also put a film on and watch it at the same time as if you were at the cinema.
Your first date outside
The fact that pub gardens open next week is very promising. So if you do start talking to someone around now, you could be arranging a REAL first date. The Dorset Dating scene has a lot to offer! Especially if you like beaches. Bournemouth beach consistently wins awards and in the hot weather, you could easily be fooled into thinking you are abroad. If you are an animal lover, then Monkey World might be a great first date idea for you, and due to the fact it is outside, it will be opening soon. If great food is your thing, Dorset has a LOT to offer. SALT.co Chef’s Table in Dorset is just the right mixture of fancy and delicious if you are looking for a bit of a treat.
Love to know your thoughts guys?
