We’re all bored in quarantine, but it looks like some people are using their free time to try and meet new partners.
Dating apps, like Bumble, Tinder, and Hinge are gaining popularity during a time when everyone is being asked to stay home. In fact, Tinder even remained the highest-grossing app in the world in March.
Apps are even adapting to these new times by offering direct links to video dates, and even recommending people open up their location preferences to match with people around the world for the time being. But is it safe to be looking for someone right now? Well, it depends. Dr. Fauci opened up about the subject to Vanity Fair and said,
“If you’re looking for a friend, sit in a room and put a mask on, and you know, chat a bit…If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, that’s your choice regarding a risk. The one thing you want to do is make sure the person is feeling well. Even though there’s a lot of asymptomatic infections, that’s one of the things that’s really troublesome.”
So there you have it!
