Finding Lockdown Love
*This post is sponsored by Wiltshire dating.
Having no end date for the current lockdown is a bit of a scary thought. It can be easy to think of the world as all doom and gloom at the moment, but the important thing is to keep positive. With the vaccine on the horizon, we have at least got something to aim towards. Trying to keep some sort of sense of normal life is important in unprecedented circumstances like this. You might think being in a lockdown is the end of your dating life, but there are quite a few ways you can still look for love until we are allowed back out into the big wide-world again!
Use local dating sites
Local dating sites are a great way to find local people who are looking for love. If you think about it strategically, when things start to open up again, we are going to be allowed into our immediate area first. That’s why it makes so much sense to find something like a dating agency Wiltshire so that you can get chatting to people that you might actually be able to meet up with one day. Another benefit to this is that you will have a good starting point for conversation. Not only can you talk about places in your local area, but you can also talk about what you are going to do when you are allowed to meet up.
Use social media
In my local town, someone posted on the group for the local train company that they had met someone really nice but didn’t have the guts to ask them out. You wouldn’t believe the way people in the community pulled together to try and find the person. And after that, a Facebook group for singles in my area was born. If you are single, there are quite a lot of social media pages and groups you can use to find love. The only thing you need to be very mindful of is if your profile is public. If you use something like a Wiltshire dating site then you have full control of the information you put on your profile. If you use social media for dating it can be quite easy for someone to find out a lot about you before they even meet you.
Get friends to play matchmaker
I know you are probably wondering how on earth you can do this during a lockdown? Well, the truth is, a little bit of “research” on social media goes a long way. Most of the popular social media channels have a “people you may know” tool. This is usually based on mutual friends. So if you see someone you like on your mutual friends, there is no harm in seeing if they are single and if your friend might make an introduction. Hopefully, your friend will know them enough to make the intro, and the worst that can happen is that they say no if they do, there are plenty more fish in the sea.
