Many singles have struggled during lockdown.
We are humans, and naturally we want to connect. Who doesn’t feel better after a simple hug? Unfortunately, during lockdown, that has not been possible.
Many moons ago, your great grandad would be out playing on his bike when he’d eye up wee Peggy-sue from down the street. Now Peggy-sue’s not much of a looker but there’s not many birds about and there’s not really any means of transport.
Jumping back into the dating scene can be particularly difficult during a global pandemic. If you are a bit rusty because you’ve been taking a break, don’t worry — there are plenty of people in your exact position.
To make things easier for you, we have come up with a handy guide on how to start dating again in the age of COVID-19.
Love and laughter are vital for good health, and everybody is entitled to love, so all the more reason to pursue love in older age.

Digital Dating was born in September 2020 to bridge the gap for singles looking for their soulmate to skip all the chit chat and dating dance that happens before a date and head straight to the conversation and seeing if there is a romantic connection.
If you have been dating someone new during these surreal times and things are going well there’s every chance that you will be thinking of being physically intimate and wondering how to best navigate that given the changing guidelines around distancing and being sociable.
You also don’t have to be the most technically sound person in the world to create an online dating profile or start swiping with the online world of singles either. It’s really simple you have to just know what pools to be swimming in and how to stand out in the modern dating crowd.
I would highly recommend these steps in the first instance to ensure you’re setting yourself up for modern dating success:

The sharp sting of grief often strikes when you least expect it.
