Our daily lives have changed dramatically in recent weeks, with the alarming spread of the coronavirus and the subsequent imposed rules of social distancing rules and staying at home. However, dating and meeting others may still be very important to us and not something we want to miss out on. At Searchmate, we have been looking at how we can best support our members to continue dating, even in lockdown.

We normally work from our lovely offices in Warwickshire where we have often enjoyed meeting new clients but following government advice, we rapidly reorganised our team of Professional Matchmakers to work safely from home. We’ve got used to virtual meetings with our team members and at the same time, we have been supporting our members in using virtual meetings too, as a way to get to know each other in safety.

Virtual dating may not be quite the same as meeting over lunch and perhaps a walk in the countryside or around town, but those are things to look forward to together and it is actually a great way to say ‘Hi’ to someone new, to see each other and to get to discover quite a lot about that exciting new person. As these are definitely still dates, we encourage our members to prepare and make the effort to look their best and maybe have a glass of something nice to sip, whilst the conversation gets flowing.

Given many of our members have found themselves living alone in lockdown, virtual dates have proved to be a great way to connect with others living in the same situation. We’ve found that virtual dating is also actually a great way for us to still help our members find love.

If you like to know more about how we can help you to meet a wonderful new partner, either in lockdown, or to take advantage of the offers we are running for new members to get ready to date as soon as restrictions are lifted, then contact Searchmate today.
