Wow one year of pandemonium has passed! We are still in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic with the byline “shot in your arm and money in your pocket” referring to the newly available vaccines and third round of stimulus payments. In addition to suffering through furloughs, layoffs and shutdowns, relationships have also been greatly impacted. Whether they are familial or personal the void is felt by everyone!
I am not sure who is the most affected… The people who are currently in a relationship/marriage or the people who are actively dating to find someone to share their life with. I have experienced both simultaneously first hand! No I am not in a relationship while actively dating! I am in a relationship and actively watching virtual dating unfold through the life of my daughters.
Both are young, gifted and beautiful! However, their social lives have been foiled by social distancing, masks and government restrictions. The result of being resilient in the pursuit of happiness and connection has led to virtual or what I have dubbed “pandem dating”
I am amazed at the connections that have been established virtually. Routine activities, like housework, reading a good book and cooking are being done together in simulcast!
Stay tuned. There is plenty more to come!
