2. Use safe transportation to and from your date
Safety begins even before you get to your date. First and foremost, you should always have your transportation to and from a date, so you are not relying on the person you are meeting to pick you up.
You never want to give your address to someone you just met on a dating site.
Avoid crowds as much as possible. Ride share services have become very popular since Covid-19. If you decide to use a ride share service on the way to your date, remember, you are enclosing yourself in a small space with a stranger.
You have no idea how this stranger takes care of their car or if the person in the car before you sneezed and didn’t cover their nose.
Public transportation is more spread out, but you still need to ensure that the bus or train is appropriately cleaned. Also, make sure that the bus or train is not too crowded.
The best way to get to a date location is to walk, drive, or bike there yourself.
If you do decide to go there and valet park, beware. You never know what the valet driver is doing in your car. He can be sneezing, coughing, or even picking his nose and wiping it under the seat.
Chatting from home during the Covid Era.
3. Have remote meetings first
Take time to get to know someone through zoom or facetime first. Use this time to get to know someone. Yes, it can be challenging to find a connection with someone through a screen.
Still, if the television show Love is Blind has taught us anything, you can form a bond in other ways besides physical touch.
Having remote meetings first also offers emotional protection. Sometimes humans have a knack for jumping into situations without thinking them through first.
Taking time before the meeting date will give you time to think about if you really want to be intimate with this person.
You may find yourself unattracted to someone you thought you would like and really into someone you thought you wouldn’t be.
Of course, a zoom date is not as romantic as an in-person one but, that is why you need to rely on your killer conversational skills. Be humorous and charming.
Tell jokes and keep your date interested. If you run out of topics to talk about, you have google right at your fingertip.
Just search for great conversation starters for a first date, and you will come up with an endless amount of suggestions≥
4. Choose a location where you can socially distance yourself
Movie theaters and candle-lit dinners are the usual go-to choices for dates but living in a world with Covid-19, those locations may not be safe anymore.
When planning for a date, assume your partner is infected and choose a venue that can reduce the amount of time exposed. Outdoor dates like a hike or a picnic in the park will provide better ventilation than going on a date indoors.
Other ideas for a socially distant date night are having an outdoor movie night, grocery shopping, and making playlists to listen to together.
Any of these ideas will give you peace of mind about your safety and ensure a great time with your date.
Just because you are wearing masks doesn’t mean the two of you should be nuzzling or kissing with your masks on.
5. Maintain social distancing throughout the date
Throughout the date, maintain at least six feet apart. How are you supposed to connect with someone if you constantly avoid their touch? Well, physicality doesn’t mean the two of you will necessarily bond.
You can be very physical with a person, but that spark just isn’t there by the end of the date. If you two remote date prior to meeting in person, you can already form a bond.
Just because you are wearing masks doesn’t mean the two of you should be nuzzling or kissing with your masks on. That will defeat the mask’s purpose, plus you will look ridiculous.
