Pandemic changes the nature of singles’ dating and intimate partners – yoursun.com
During desperate times, you’ve got to make do with what you have … or whom you have.
A new survey released Tuesday by online dating company Match found that nearly 25% of singles who reported having sex during lockdown did so with a non-romantic roommate, one of the many ways Americans had to adapt during the coronavirus pandemic.
The 10th annual Singles in America study offers a revealing insight into how singles navigated a year of unprecedented social, economic and political changes and how the ongoing pandemic transformed their approach to dating, love and sex.
Although many singles found a hook-up partner in their own household, at least 71% of survey participants managed to spend their quarantine without any sex at all. Among those who did get some action, 45% decided to take the risk and have sex with someone outside of their household, according to the survey.
