Dating during lockdown is not easy! But for those single people out there it’s a long time to forget about finding that someone special, and during long days at home you might feel lonely, especially if you have friends who are in lockdown with their partners.
Dating doesn’t have to be forgotten during these times though, in actual fact, stats are showing that people are using dating apps more than ever during these times which means your chances of finding someone could be higher.
Many dating apps have actually added new features to help the process, that first date can now be done virtually, and how much easier is that?! No need to even leave the house!
Apps to try…
One of the best known dating apps, swipe right on someone you like and if they do the same you can start a conversation with them.
Women actually make the first move on this app, and if they haven’t done it within 24 hours then the match will be removed! Same sex couples can use the app too, in which case either one can message the other. Bumble has a built in video calling service which is a great thing right now!
Veg & Grazer
Both of these dating apps are for vegans looking to meet other vegans. If you have something you feel really passionately about then it makes sense to find someone else who feels the same way and this makes that a lot easier!

These are just a few choices, there is no end of dating apps out there these days for anyone and everyone no matter what your preference or interests.
One of the good things about dating during lockdown is that you can take things a lot slower, there isn’t so much pressure to meet up straight away or move things to the next stage. This can be really helpful if you have recently split up with someone. It means you can get to know someone without jumping straight into a rebound relationship.
