Is anyone feeling positive about dating during coronavirus? – 9Honey
Plenty of socially-distanced singles have found love in the time of coronavirus quite… impossible to find.
However, a new study reveals some hopeless romantics actually think coronavirus will positively impact dating.
Out of 1000 people surveyed by telehealth and sexual health company Online Doctor, 17 per cent said they genuinely believe the pandemic will have a positive effect on their prospects for love.
“With an event as life-altering as a global pandemic, it’s safe to say there are so many ways it affects people that aren’t necessarily a priority,” Dr. Simran Deo tells 9Honey.
“Dating is a great example of that. While we were curious about how people were changing their behaviours, we also wanted to see if their outlook on dating had changed.”
Dr Deo notes that among the surprising findings was how much attitudes toward dating have “stayed the same” despite the circumstances.
