By Karl Murphy

The worldwide quarantine imposed out of rapid spread of COVID-19 virus has significantly changed every sphere of human life. People around the world have been all forced to stay home and cut down almost all interpersonal connections. It is logical that the changes affected the sphere of dating. In many countries today there are restrictions on movement and interaction between people: somewhere you can only go to the nearest store or pharmacy, somewhere you can’t meet in a group of more than two people or it is not recommended to communicate with those with whom you do not live in the same house. Not the most convenient environment for new acquaintances. Some find it absolutely awful and depressing, others come to terms and dedicate this time to their families, but there is also the third group that doesn’t even know how to feel. These are the loving couples that appeared to be separated for months. What are the options left for them to communicate and spend time together in the settings of strict prohibitions?

First of all, let’s think about loving couples that are not able to see each other in months for reasons different from worldwide lockdown – about international sailors, militaries, businessmen and their wives. How do they maintain their relationships and stay in touch? These examples should help separated couples build the lock down communication strategy.

Well, fortunately, in terms of worldwide communication technologies, the modern world has a lot to offer to everyone in need.

Keep In Touch Through Social Media

You may exchange your news, feelings and thoughts via messengers, emails or video calls. For those who are willing to maintain their sexual lives during the quarantine there are tons of information and tutorials on how to perform the erotic side of relationships online.

If you are not able to meet at the restaurant, cinema or theater you can always organize an online date. Light up candles, order the same food and drinks from delivery and watch some movie or theater play together. This probably won’t substitute warm evenings together, however, will help you to survive the separation easier.

Show Your Affection

Secondly, even if you are not near your beloved one, you still can take care of and show your affection to them. Don’t think that if you are far away from your beloved one, you are not able to help and support them.

Order flowers and sweets delivery to your girl’s apartment or buy something your spouse has long dreamt of from an online store. If your significant other is facing some problems that can be solved remotely – don’t hesitate to take the situation into your hands.
