This year has been full of unexpected events. The biggest? The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic. The rapid spread of this virus and consequent disease has ravaged the world, causing all of our years to veer off track.
Not only has this pandemic caused a severe health risk, but many of us have been spending the majority of our time within the confines of our own homes to be safe and to slow and reduce the spread of the virus.
This has had an impact on many aspects of our lives. If you were planning on dating this year, dating has doubtless been one of them.
How can you meet someone new if you’re not allowed to socialize with people who live outside of your own household in public places?
The good news is that you’re not entirely out of luck. You can still date virtually thanks to constant improvements and advancements in technology.
But what should you do for your virtual date? Here are a few suggestions that you might want to take into consideration.
Simple virtual date ideas
It’s time to download dating aaapps
If you’re not on dating apps or websites at the moment, now is the time to download them or sign up. You’re not going to meet many people in the confines of your own home, so this is a good way to get chatting to people.
There are countless options out there, so choose the site or platform that works best for you. You can still set your radius to local, so you have a chance of things working on a practical level once life does start to return to normal.
Have an initial video chat
If you’ve been messaging your date, you may want to see them face to face. This will give you confidence that they are who they say they are and that you get on when you’re actually talking.
Sure, this may be a bit nerve-wracking, but using video chat software can help you to feel like you’re meeting the person you’re interested in.
Head to an online casino
Casinos tend to be popular date spots. You get to have a laugh and casually play some games. So why not log into a virtual casino with your date? There are countless games to play and you can have a whole lot of fun.
You can use your laptop or follow this Mobile Casino Guide. Just make sure to be sensible. Don’t put down any money you can’t afford to lose and monitor your time – perhaps just check-in for an hour or so.
Hold a video chat dinner date
Many people would go out for dinner for a first date. But this might not be possible right now. Instead, why not both cook up a meal and log in to video chat while you both eat? This is the closest alternative and can actually be pretty fun!
These are just a few virtual dating ideas that should help you to get the ball rolling while staying safe and following rules and guidelines. Hopefully, some of them work out for you!
