Recently, I caught up with Justina, 24 and her beau John, 29.
Check out my interview with this couple who found love in a hopeless place (cues Rihanna); they made a connection online during quarantine back in March! I wanted to share this couples journey with you all as inspiration that it can happen for you too. The last two months we’ve talked about not giving up on love and dating due to the pandemic in our blog series: Quarantine Dating Survival Guide. Friends there is no foreseeable end to this, waiting until the pandemic is over is just not an option. You are still allowed to (safely) look for romantic connections and you could even get lucky like these two!
Here’s what one couple had to say about their Quarantine Connection:
How did you guys meet? Did you use a dating app?
We met on Hinge. Our first date was actually a quarantine date. He came over and we ordered takeout at my house.
Who sent the first message?
John messaged first
Were either of you looking for a relationship while on the apps?
I was (Justina)
What are date nights like right now? In person? Virtual?
Date nights are in person, we usually try to do something outdoors since we spend so much time indoors these days because of Corona.
How often do you see each other?
Pretty much daily.
What is the 1st thing you’re going to do as a couple when the outside opens?
Take a trip!! We both like to travel.
Advice for those looking for connections now during Quarantine?
Getting to know someone on an app is a convenient alternative to meeting people at clubs, bars, or other social events. I know plenty of people looking for real connections online, and a few that have found genuine connections from them.Justina and John
Best wishes to these two! Hopefully they can take those trips soon 🙂
Justina and John are just an example of one couple that I stumbled across who met online during these crazy times. As they confirmed, there are plenty of people making great connections right now. Your pandemic partner is out there and probably looking for you too!
