In our world today, we have to take hold of all moments we can to enjoy ourselves.  Outside activities are at an all-time low and it's rather "iffy" when the society we live in, will open up comfortably enough for us to go about our dealings more freely.  But one thing you can always bank on is- "Love is in the air!" We are creatures of emotion. We need companionship and that means, people are still on the market and ready to meet new people. So how do we combat the barriers to dating in this COVID era?  We go on a date! 

Dating is not obsolete. Just like technology changes to make our businesses and other obligations more convenient and less time-consuming, virtual dating is on the rise. Our personal and intimate lives have taken to social media and all that the latest technology has to offer. Talk about convenience!

Virtual Dating Conversation Starters

So now you are back on the market and ready to go on a date. You get the benefit of having a date, being at home safe, and not having to worry about the trip time to and fro. Only now, how do you get the conversation started, keep it going and enjoy it- all at the same time? Here are some great ideas for conversation starters that are sure to "break the ice," on those first talks into what can be the best date ever!

  1. • What was the best part of your day today? 
    1. • If you enjoy our first date, how do you plan to make our second date exciting?                   
      1. •I haven't dated in a while, but I'm interested in what you are hoping to gain from our date?
        1. •I like getting to know a person's true interests. What are some of your favorite things to do?
          1. •What do you do for a living and do you enjoy it?
            1. •I am an understanding person. Are you looking for a long term, short term, or open relationship?

Preparing for your Date

Going on a date in person can be so anxiety-provoking and if you're not enjoying your date, you have to get creative to find your way out. On the other hand, as exciting as going on a first date can be, you spend lots of time considering the things you are going to say, what you're going to wear, and how to present the best you possible. Not so much of the "ado" when it comes to viral dating. Viral dating is probably the best way to date these days, although you may find it to be a bit of a challenge to engage your date and keep them engaged.  However, if you make sure you are well-rested, not hungry, and just overall prepped for the virtual world you are about to enter, (with all mishaps aside) you can feel that your time has been well spent. If you have a good level of energy for your virtual date, you can transfer the positivity and have a notable moment.
