Love in the time of coronavirus. Is it even possible? With COVID-19 ravaging the world and causing massive changes in people’s lives that involve restricting their movement through quarantines, lockdowns, and social-distancing dating is harder than ever—and it wasn’t exactly easy before.
With nearly all bars and restaurants closed where would you even meet a potential date or Tinder match? The park? Only if you maintain a distance of 6 feet from each other, which makes it slightly difficult to make a move.
Furthermore what kind of psychos are actually still running around trying to get lucky during a global pandemic? You’d have to have some sort of death wish, not just for yourself but for society at large. And yet…the mating instinct is a strong one and it’s not exactly breaking news that a bad case of horny-itis can make people do some stupid things.
Here’s how Tinder users are dating, not dating, or otherwise coping in the time of coronavirus.
