A challenging new normal for daters
The world has gone into a whirlwind because a virus has taken over. Are we heading towards an apocalypse…? Probably not, but dating is definitely going to change from now on. Back in March, Dr. Jenny Harries, the UK’s deputy chief medical officer, has announced: couples living away from one another should “test the strength of their relationship”. You either spend quarantine together throughout all of its duration, or apart. There is no in-between.
Being so close for such a long period of time has had a deep impact on the way some couples view their fairly new relationships. The pandemic has resulted in some “turbo relationships” which are relationships that have gotten serious much quicker than they normally would. It seems like quarantining with your significant other has become a relationship goal. It will also be a key determinant of whether your relationship lasts. A recent survey found that 63% of people said they felt their relationship was stronger. Moreover, 58% said they now want to be with their partner forever.
What about those who aren’t in a relationship?
Still single during quarantine? Don’t worry now… your shot at true love is still live and kicking. Another trend that has been on the rise recently is online dating. Quarantining and businesses shutting down has definitely made it more difficult to go on dates. Why not use the wonders of the web and digitization to take care of that? Online dating has become the newest best way to meet new people and spark up a romantic night. We’ve partnered up with one of the best online dating services available around the world. eHarmony has an exclusive compatibility matching system that will help you find true love.
