Post-Pandemic Dating

This piece in the New Yorker “How Dating During a Pandemic Is Like Being in a Jane Austen Novel” (by Amy Collier) is tongue-in-cheek but makes some really good points.

I know one lady who met the man of her dreams online during the pandemic, they corresponded/video chatted for months. Now they’re moving in together.

I’m a happy middle-aged single person who seems to have lost the urge to date. But if I still had that inclination, I would probably find the imposed “social distance” somewhat beneficial. It would keep me from rushing into things, as I tended to do when I was younger.

More thoughts later. For those of you who are not already in a committed relationship, and are interested in dating, how has “pandemic dating” been for you? Have you found any positive aspects?
