Relationships, even as the coronavirus has seriously disrupted the opportunity to meetup with a potential significant other, will continue to compel the hopeful romantic who believes one day they will meet that someone who is "the one."

In the post-pandemic scenario, the potential to hook-up or date will include the same activities as life before the pandemic. So, shake off those hibernation and isolation clothes, pull out the home weights, and plan a possible, while embracing social distancing, scenario that includes meeting new people.

With group dynamics out for some time, creativity will be key in meeting and keeping the flame alive until society becomes fully integrated once again.

Pick a Comfortable Date Spot

Choose a spot that is naturally comfortable. With all the dynamics to consider, the safety factor is the most important. Get the home-field advantage and choose your favorite bar, restaurant, or other safe space. Otherwise, you may feel uncomfortable meeting someone in a strange new place. Choosing the right date spot is part of the stress of dating, so choosing a place where you are naturally comfortable will help decrease your stress.

Dress to Impress
