It’s hard to date when you can’t see each other in person.
You hate that you can’t see your dates in person to test the chemistry. All of your conversations occur online.
You hate that you can’t meet people naturally, like at concerts or bars. You have to look for them online.
You hate that you’re forced to take things slow (because you can’t meet in person) and can’t set your own pace for the relationship.
You hate that you don’t get any privacy. Everyone is home all the time, so if you want to go on a Zoom date, your roommates/parents/pets are all going to overhear.
You hate that you can’t plan big, exciting trips with them because you have no idea when you’ll be able to travel again.
You hate that you have nothing to talk about with matches because nothing is really going on at the moment.
You hate that you’re usually walking around in sweatpants or pajamas and rarely feel sexy anymore.
You hate that you don’t have the chance to have sex. You can only touch yourself.
You hate that some matches pressure you to meet up, even though it’s unsafe, and ghost you when they don’t get their way.
You hate that quarantine has made you feel even more alone and it’s getting harder to pretend you don’t want a relationship.
You hate that you don’t get to kiss them to see whether they’re even worth talking to for another month.
You hate that it’s hard to tell whether the person you’re interested in is talking to a dozen other people or only you.
