When do we think dating can go back to normal post-pandemic? Are we thinking mid 2021?

...when we're post-pandemic.

likesmartfunny

But for real, the problem is this pandemic hasn't just messed up dating. Everything is in disarray, stress is through the roof, people are losing jobs and Q3 is going to be a corporate bloodbath. People aren't their normal selves, which means dating can be an escape, but also a big black box.

And dating was fine before the pandemic? Let’s face it, virus or not, dating is a bit of a S#|+ show.

Everything has changed and yet some things remain the same but more challenged.

I’ve actually had a reasonably interesting few minutes the distance dating IRL but six feet apart. It allows you an opportunity to get to know another human and removes some (not all) of the misnomer that someone better is waiting in your inbox. People want to be near others - people want a connection.

Now, if your thing is crowded bars and hookups then I can see where the pandemic has put a huge stop to that. Maybe just approach things differently?

It sounds like I’m being facetious but when you’re post pandemic or when things start getting a lot better.

I can use us (Perth, Western Australia) as an example. We’re getting very close to a new normal with virtually everything other than our borders opening up again. While bars, clubs, cafes & restaurants were closed it was pretty much impossible to date.

I held out from actively dating until we hit phase 4 of reopening. There are still some restrictions around numbers etc and hard border closures but other than that we’re pretty much back to normal. I think we’re aiming for phase 5 around Aug 1.

I don’t trust that the guy I’m dating is over his first love. We’ve talked about it but it’s hard for me to believe him: he sends her birthday wishes, still hangs out with her in group settings, was very sad when he told me about her dumping him, asked her to get back together a couple weeks before we started dating, etc. Do I just move on now?

Question about dating and dating apps. M 🐠 here in my 30’s. Been working hard on getting in shape, lost 80 pounds since beginning of last year. Originally from the Midwest, I never had issues with dating or apps, but ever since moving to Los Angeles, like I rarely get any matches and haven’t gone on any dates. Like I like my look, have a nice buzz cut, grew out my beard, feel good about myself.

Why is dating in LA so hard? M 🐠 do you have a perspective? F 🐠 do you have a perspective? Thanks.
