VIRTUAL DATING ALTERNATIVES
Lockdown love begins on video, so it’s no surprise that Tinder has launched a virtual dating feature to make the most of social distancing guidelines.
But why get involved?
- Video dating apps allow for that instant connection to go beyond messaging. We’ve all been there when everything appears to be going great in the messages and then you meet up and the mood is flatter than Holland. Get. Me. Out.
- But with video chats, dating is saved from the awkward pauses – you’ll be able to suss each other out in actual conversation, from the comfort of your own home. What’s not to like? You can simulate getting closer way more than if you were just messaging.
- And when you’ve had a few video dates, take things further with a virtual Netflix and Chill or some of these zero cost date ideas to keep the spark from burning out. It’s an easier way to sort out who you want to meet up and socially distance with, in the long run.
Clearly, surviving time apart from people doesn’t mean being disconnected! Keep in touch (without, you know, touching) with these virtual dating tricks – even after lockdown, video dates are a good way of meeting with someone before you commit to getting close.
