The global pandemic has drifted us all away from each other. While that’s true for the physical part, it’s false for matters of the heart! Nothing can beat what two people feel for each other, and hence, dating during COVID is taking place in full swing.

Here are some fantastic online and offline dating ideas during the global pandemic!

Tune your feelings with the ideas and thoughts you learn from the written word!

Do you and your partner share a favourite genre? Even if you don’t have a common ground, pick a book that you’d love to read with your beau. And if not a book, you could just read poetry to each other.

2. Paint or draw together

Art is the ultimate retreat for the creative couple!

Choose a particular subject to draw or paint together. Or better yet, why not try drawing or painting each other? You could do this using a photo or even while going live on a video call.

3. Cook or bake a dish together

Pick a recipe that both of you love!

Whether it’s a dinner dish or a cake, pick a recipe from the Internet (or share your own). Try cooking or baking while you’re on audio or video call to add to the fun! If you don’t want to try anything new, just make a drink or a cup of tea together.

5. Watch a movie together

Did you know you could watch a movie online?

Websites like letsgaze and watch2gether allow two people to watch video content at the same time. So not only can the two of you watch in sync, but you can also chat and view each other on webcam live while you’re at it!

6. Go on photography trips

You could do photo tours — both online and offline!

Why not plan a tour around town solely to take photos? Visit important landmarks and sites or click the empty streets. Or you could even take photos live while on a video call..
