The UK is back in lockdown and for the thousands of single people across the country, that means dating has once again become more difficult. With everybody asked to stay at home as much as possible and only leave the house when it’s absolutely necessary in order to get back in control of the new and more infectious strain of the COVID19 virus, it might feel like your dating life has to be put back on hold for the time being. But the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way – here are some ideas to keep your dating life alive even if you’re locked down.

Try Online Dating:

Join Online Groups:

If you’re a single mom who wants to start communicating online and meet new people during this time, there are plenty of online groups that you can join. With everybody staying at home and going outside for activities no longer permitted except for the daily exercise, online groups and virtual meetups have become the new way to ensure that your social life doesn’t die out during these times – and you could even end up meeting your special somebody in a local group or virtual hobby group.

Virtual Dates:

The past year has certainly not been the best for anybody who had recently started dating somebody or couples who met in 2020, but the good news is that there are more virtual date ideas than ever before if you’re unable to form a support bubble with each other and meet up as normal for any reason. Consider setting regular time apart to have a video call dinner or drinks together – it might not be quite as good as the real thing, but it’ll definitely help you spend quality time together in the best way possible right now. Don’t forget that you can still meet up with one person outside of your household for exercise so if you both live locally, you can meet up in your local park or go for a walk as long as you socially distance and wear a mask.

Online Games and Entertainment:

Another way to keep your new relationship alive if you’ve recently started dating somebody during the pandemic is with online games and other virtual entertainment options. If you both own a gaming console or play games on your PC there are plenty of fun multiplayer options that you can play together even if you’re unable to be there in person.
