Single during Corona pandemic

Vitamin S

It is what it is, we all have to stay indoors as much as possible and miss our Vitamin S (social contacts), either through colleagues or through all kinds of get-togethers you had planned with friends. If you live together or are married, you still get some form of this Vitamin, but if you’re not in a relationship, this period can be extra hard. That’s why I’d like to give you some things that might help you, be sure to check the last one!
This time is a unique opportunity to press the pause button and think about what you really want in your life and what is missing. Maybe you thought you were happy single and now you realize that you would like a relationship anyway and maybe even crave it. However, don’t confuse this feeling with a craving for comfort, not having to wear it on your own, or with the desire for physical contact as a lot of it has been lost. But if you think about it for a moment and do some self-reflection, you are going to know where you want to go after this period. And go ahead, make a to do list or a bucket list! You will immediately feel what you really want and where you want to go.
Practice Gratitude
Cliché, I know, but no matter how bad you may feel, there’s something in each day to be thankful for. Now is definitely the time to look at what you do have instead of what you don’t and it can be as simple as that hot cup of coffee in the morning or that hot shower. Thinking about this and writing it down, lowers your stress level. The time to add a daily gratitude exercise to your daily planner is now.
Feel better with gratitude
Know that you’re not alone
This pandemic has hit everyone hard in different ways. We have all lost our routines, some have lost their jobs and some have even lost friends or family members. We are all in the same boat. Remind yourself of that as often as possible. And there are also people who love you. It may not be “romantic” love, but it is also love.
See new ways to date
It may sound strange, but the quarantine has opened up new possibilities for dating. Haven’t you two been able to meet yet? Then this is an ideal time to get to know each other better before you meet in person. Are you going for a walk? Facetime each other during the walk and show him/her the beautiful area in which you live, just give him/her a guided tour. Maybe you’re more of the wait-and-see type or a bit introverted and this facetimen scares you a bit, then you can suggest a movie night via Netflixparty (downloadable via Google Chrome). This way you can watch the same movie together and instead of talking, you can chat if you want to say something, about the movie e.g. and you already have material to talk about other than corona. There are plenty of possibilities and I bet that if you will be able to meet in person, it will be like you have known each other for a long time.
