Love in lockdown: How the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world of dating – Sky News

“Being single during this pandemic has been downright dreadful.”

That was the tweet from Dr Gagan Bhatnagar six-days before Christmas, the evening the chance of getting together for the festive period with family and friends was cancelled for many in the UK.

The 36-year-old doctor, who was “at a low point” and feeling isolated in his London flat, went on: “Please take [COVID-19] seriously, but by God has it been hard when you simply don’t have anyone to share time with.”

Gagan’s post struck a nerve – it was liked nearly 50,000 times and was seen by 4.8million people.

Hundreds of messages poured in, not just from the young, free and single but from those in their 60s and 70s too.
