This is the time to practice your courting skills!
As you know by now, in light of COVID-19, all bars, restaurants as well as all entertainment venues are closed, and we are warned by the WHO to practice social distancing and Shelter-In-Place. This has a lot of people feeling anxious, bored and lonely at home. A lot of you have reached out to us asking for advice on how to conquer this time and meet people. After all, social connection is a core human need and the desire to connect is a fundamental drive.
Tips for Dating during the Shelter-In-Place Period by our founder Simona Fusco:
“This past year has been tough on all of us whether that’s because of being apart from our loved ones or having challenges meeting that special someone when most of the country is still under a stay at home order. But believe it or not, this pandemic has actually brought people much closer together. More than ever, people are spending more time at home with family and many have become more appreciative of friends and having that special someone in their lives. Because of your numerous requests to help ease some of the loneliness that comes from social distancing, I have decided to open up our exclusive database and offer a 60 day trial at a reduced rate to meet our gorgeous Perfect 12s through online introductions and offer some tips on dating during this pandemic.
This is the time do the things you have been putting off and to practice old fashioned courtship. Get to know your significant other before meeting. It is how courting was done in the old days whereas it was the role of the man to actively court or “woo” a woman towards an intimate relationship and eventually marriage. Through writing her love letters, sending her little gifts such as chocolates and flowers, engaging in long conversations on the phone and finally asking permission from her parents to take her out on a date. Imagine all the anticipation both must have felt before finally being able to meet in person! Explosive right?!
Today, thanks to technology, this is much easier done! No matter what the situation, we are able to connect and see each other through Facetime or Zoom/Skype from the comfort of our own home. Whether for business or dating, we can meet “face to face” before meeting in person! I witness people that are miles apart cook recipes together, watch movies together, take walks together and come up with many other fun online dating ideas that are so important to create an emotional connection. There is no better feeling than experiencing those butterflies in your stomach right before you meet except this time you’ll know that the both of you genuinely took the time to get to know each other beforehand and that you’re meeting for real, authentic reasons.
As for our local clients, many will order their dates favorite takeout/delivery and set up a romantic candlelit dinner at their home. Break out that picnic basket and explore a private spot in nature, take a weekend road trip, rent a boat and/or enjoy watersports such as snorkeling, jet skiing, check out new hiking trails, take a walk on the beach/park, and of course there’s movie night! Cuddling up in front of the TV with a glass of wine and snacks. On a side note, how great is it that now you can actually get away with saying: Let’s Netflix and Chill!*
*Many cities are still offering outdoor dining. For a list of restaurants please inquire within.
If nothing else, this pandemic has taught us to go back to our old-fashioned values. Appreciating and spending time with family, and being kind to one another…. No games, No superficiality, just being your authentic self.”
