Lockdown Lovin’ – Coronavirus Mini-Story of the Day


A sampling of dating profiles ranked by readiness to connect, lowest to highest.

OkCupid:
I spent a lot of time on this very long and detailed profile but am feeling really hesitant about connecting during quarantine. I usually like to move from texting to an in-person meet pretty quickly to see if we have chemistry. Without knowing when quarantine will end, I feel like texting endlessly until then seems like a potentially bad investment of our time and energy. If you like the rest of my profile, I hope you’ll Like me, and I’ll look forward to connecting with you when we once again have the possibility of meeting out in the world.

Plenty of Fish:
Shy, was just getting back into the dating world when lockdown hit, kids grown up and out of the house, love language is touch, afraid I might cry the first time someone holds my hand after all this, really just want to text with someone who also doesn’t want to feel so alone, not good at writing first, but I promise I’ll write back

Bumble:
COVID symptom-free for 2 weeks. If you are, too, let’s compare STI results and see if we can forego social distancing and find a safe way to connect IRL!

Craiglist:
casual encounter, tell me you dont have corona and ill believe you, just need someone to be with tonite

Tinder:
Well, thanks for stopping by, a little bit about me. I enjoy trying new restaurants, relaxing at home, craft beers, kayaking. Looking to make a connection and see where it goes.
