Stay online. Even while the world is taking a pause from dating.
You want to be ready when the world gets back to normal, and it will. Work on your profiles. Look into getting on another site or app. Make sure your photos are hot. Interact with men online. If they like you enough, they will wait and ask you out when life is back to normal.
Don't let a man turn you into a penpal, though. If he's the wrong guy, he'll waste your precious time. You'll also kill the chase. The real chemistry starts on the date, so don't fall too hard until you've met a person in real life. Plus, you're too busy to be a pen pal to a man. If you're not too busy to be a man's pen pal, you should be. There's a lot you can still be doing, even though we're all hunkered down. Many of you are still working, either at home or out in the real world where your essential services are needed. If you're out of work, you should be job searching because this shutdown is temporary.
Meanwhile, there's a lot to do socially, to keep you busy and connected, and to help you meet men. There's online speed dating and online networking. There are online classes. There are even Netflix parties! While you can't interact with many people in person, you can do a lot online, thanks to today's technology.
