Dating During a Pandemic

They have decided to date safely in the times of pandemic. But what about a close relationship? How is love to survive in this fight with COVID-19?

In my opinion, coronavirus has no right to deprive us of the right of being happy and we can find benefits of dates for men and women even in such a situation. What is more, a number of doctors think that quarantine and having to stay at home could make our spiritual and sexual life more exquisite. All you have to do is make your imagination work. To help you with that, we have prepared some useful advice on how to date nowadays considering all the above-mentioned issues.


This version suits a couple if both of the partners are healthy. It is not a big problem to create a cozy and romantic atmosphere at home. For example, make special lighting with the help of garlands, candles, or nightlights. You could also stick glow-in-the-dark stars or hearts on the walls, put beautiful glasses and dishes on the table. All this will undoubtedly make your evening a romantic one.


The good thing about the whole situation is that you do not need to think about how to ask a girlfriend out on a date. Just find a good film online, cuddle under a warm blanket and enjoy the best time together. Or, turn on some light jazz and dance to it. I am sure your GF will be pleased even more.

Another good idea to spice up your relationship without violating rules dating in the epoch of corona is to make online tours to different places, either the ones you have already visited to remember the good days or the ones you have never been to and dream about your future.

To brighten up your evening, order some tasty dinner, which food deliveries will gladly bring to your door.

Do you want to have some fun? Remember board games, many of which, by the way, could have romantic or erotic implication, which won’t let a couple get bored 😉

What if for some reason lovers have no chance to see each other? Do not worry, we’ve got some tips for dates like these as well.

The easiest thing to do is organize an online dinner. You could use Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, or any other app supporting video connection. However, the creation of a romantic setting depends on either of the daters. How to do it? Read above.


They might come in handy as modern computer games can help you make a pleasant surprise for your beloved like, for example, in Minecraft, building a fairy-tale palace, or planting a wonder-orchard and laying a virtual table in it, just for the two of you.


In case there is no chance to see each other, it is also possible to remind the GF about the feelings with the help of delivery services. Order a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, a set of sushi from HER favorite restaurant, a T-shirt with a special print on it, a toy, a good book, or even a postcard. What you choose depends on your flight of fantasy and the girl’s tastes.


Even being away from each other, you can organize a romantic date under the stars. Turn on your video connection, go outside, and enjoy the starry sky together. Who knows, maybe you will see a shooting star and make a wish…


There is nothing as precious as a gift made by your own hands. However, if you cannot meet, it is still possible to please your dear. Modern video editing software is able to help with this. Make a video message or a collage of photos changing to your favorite song. Even such a simple present will be appreciated as you have put your soul into it.
