Dating during COVID-19

Meeting new singles out in the real world during COVID-19 feels practically impossible. With social-distancing and venue capacity restrictions in place, you may be asking yourself “how exactly am I supposed to do it?” People are now even more unlikely to welcome a stranger walking up to them at a cafe, or on the train, so the chance of meeting someone out in the real world seems impossibly slim because it is. I’m sure you’d also agree that you don’t really want to be involved with a selfish & irresponsible random that is ultimately putting your health at risk if they approach you anyway, right? This sounds like the ultimate sucky situation, so what can we singles do instead?

Three words: Virtual Speed Dating. If you haven’t heard of it, you’ve likely been self-isolating just a little too intensely! Meeting singles at our Virtual Speed Dating events allow you to get to know them before you meet them in the real world, which is actually not a bad setup. It’s also the only option we have right now, so we might as well take advantage of this new norm! By accepting this new reality, so many people are moving forward in life, in a time where it feels like the world has stopped. People who do not accept this new reality are being left behind, not just within the dating scene, but in all aspects of this crisis. Let’s move forward together!

The COVID-19 pandemic will be here until at least the END of 2021. That is 18 months away! I’m not just talking about a spike in cases, but also about the aftermath of this crisis, as we will all need some time to work through this trauma. Virtual Speed Dating allows for face to face meetings that otherwise wouldn’t occur at all for singles for a very long time, either organically or via one of our venue-based speed dating events.

So what does that mean for single people wanting to meet other singles?

Whilst nothing beats meeting people in a real-life environment such as our venue-based speed dating, our Yarra Valley wine tours, or our massive singles parties, there isn’t anything you can do right now other than our virtual events. At our virtual events, you chat with singles face to face. Let me say it louder for the people in the back; it’s FACE TO FACE! There are real humans speaking to you, unlike online dating apps where you have photos for reference that end up looking nothing like the person in real life… Am I right? I know we’ve all been there! With all the tricky filters, perfect angles, sunglasses & far away photos, you just can’t make out what they look like half the time, and if people aren’t even honest about their appearance, how can you know they’re being honest about their personality?

During our virtual events, not only can you see who you’re chatting within a live environment, but you can also engage with them. You can score numbers and chat with them offline until you feel comfortable enough to meet that person in the real world.

Now, let’s break down the benefits of Virtual Speed Dating:

  • You don’t have to drive up to 45 minutes to get to a venue and another 45 minutes to get home. Just switch on your laptop or smart device and away you go!
  • You are dating from the comfort of your own home, your own space, your own comfort zone. Remember, it’s called a ‘comfort zone’ for a reason!
  • You have a host that is logged on with you to facilitate the night, so all you have to do is have the conversations.
  • No noisy venues! You get to see your dates FACE TO FACE and chat with them in a quiet video chat room, just the two of you.
  • You get to screen everyone and select who gets your contact details to contact you after the event has finished.

You don’t know what you don’t know, which is why it’s so important to experience as much as you can in life. Otherwise, how are you going to know whether or not you like something if you don’t try it at least once? The FOMO is real.

Do yourself a favor and give it a go. You may find your next major relationship!
