How to date as a single parent during COVID

2020; so much has changed in the last few months, it’s easy to get disheartened with what the future might hold but there is hope. It is not all doom and gloom. As a single parent, you’ll no doubt have experienced the highs and lows of parenthood over the last few months. But at the same time, you’ll have made lovely memories with your little ones and enjoyed the chance to spend quality time with them. This is precious time that you’ll never get back which in itself is something to cherish for a lifetime.

There’s still opportunity for love

While the world continues to experience restrictions and all of us adjust to the new ‘normal’ way of living, don’t despair; there’s still plenty of opportunity to find love. Whether you’re recently single or have been enjoying the chance to focus on yourself and your family for a little longer, now’s the ideal time to discover what makes you happy and what you’d like from the future. If meeting other single, like minded individuals from the comfort of your own home sounds like the perfect way to meet others, you should consider giving virtual speed dating a try.

With social distancing measures firmly in place (and no sign they’ll be banished anytime soon), social distancing dates via virtual dating is winning the hearts and minds of many singles across London and beyond.

No need to leave the house for love

In reality, many singles before the pandemic struck may not have even considered this way of dating. In fact, it was still commonplace for people to meet for face to face dates in bars and clubs where casual flings ended in ghosting and empty promises. However, now more and more people are enjoying the chance to chat with lots of different singles without having to leave the house or the need to organise suitable childcare.

Virtual meets connect singles

If truth be told, lockdown has really given us all a chance to think about what we really want from life and our relationships when things return back to ‘normal’ (whatever normal may look like).  With a focus on virtually meeting lots of lovely singles in a safe, non threatening environment and having the opportunity to chat, flirt and have a giggle, virtual speed dating is a great way to build healthy, trusting relationships prior to meeting in real life.
