Three tips to find love in lockdown
Single Australians have experienced loneliness at a whole new level in lockdowns and are feeling hopeless in the struggle to find love in 2021.
“There are three ways you can take advantage of dating during any lockdown!” says dating coach, Andrew Gung.
Here are Andrew's top three tips:
1. Dating app usage always spikes during lockdowns! While Aussie singles aren’t eating out and bar hopping through the city, they’re resorting to connect with other singles on dating apps such as Hinge, Bumble, and Tinder.
2. Daily walks around parks. Isolation has a lot of people craving human interaction. Next time you see a beautiful woman or a handsome man walking their dog through the park, go and say “Hi.” You’ll be surprised at the positive responses you’ll get! Be sure to abide by your state’s COVID laws such as the 1.5-metre social distancing measures when you’re talking to a complete stranger.
3. Social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram are great for reconnecting with that crush you haven’t spoken to in ages. Lockdowns can be a perfect time to reach out, especially with so many single people working from home and looking for companionship. You may even find that the people you reach out to will respond to you faster than they would outside of a lockdown!
