Dating Safely During the Coronavirus Outbreak

At Cyber-Dating Expert, we care about your safety. Safety goes beyond just meeting in a public place and having your own transportation.

Dating online should be an experience for you to grow personally, but also be a platform and environment for singles to feel safe.

With the serious concerns of the Coronavirus outbreak, many conferences and vacations are canceled, and just about every store is sold-out of hand-sanitizers.

I’ve been asked if meeting new dates should also be on hold.

Should you stop swiping and chatting on dating apps?

Do you really want to go to a public place with a stranger who might be sneezing into their meal?

If you’re swiping on Tinder, chances are you’ll see this pop up notice with safety tips, along with a link to the World Health Organization’s website.

Tinder recommends the following to their subscribers:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Carry hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Maintain social distance in public gatherings

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread, awareness is vital, and plans do tend to change. Several conferences have been canceled, with some replaced with live streaming events.

Here’s How to  Keep the Spark Alive

As it relates to matters of the heart, you might want to stay home with your date and binge watch a few shows. For those who haven’t met yet, I recommend using video chat instead of canceling a date.

In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Rachel Wolfe interviewed me, along with dating apps and some users, about the trend of going on a video date before meeting in person.

Since I’m a technology enthusiast, I think using Facetime for a date, or in app video or phone features found on Bumble, Grindr, and Match to keep the digital spark alive.

And if you do have the common cold, do yourself and everyone else a favor, and stay home.

Since just about every store is out-of-stock of hand sanitizers, or people are selling bottles of it at outrageous prices, you can create a make-shift one at home using vodka or alcohol.

Remember, we need to make good decisions about everyday life, especially when meeting someone new, and the coronavirus is a reminder to take precautions to protect your health.
