Just imagine a situation. You have met a girl of your dreams, talked to her for months, and invited for a meeting in reality. Unfortunately, you didn’t know that you have got the virus somewhere last week. As you know, you may not have any symptoms for two weeks. It would be a great pity if you meet in-person and the lady you like so much will get infected. Sounds not very romantic, does it? It isn’t the best start of relationships, especially, if taking into account that one person may be ill without serious consequences while another one may have a more serious form of the disease. No doubt that online dating is the safest option at the moment. But if you can’t wait until the situation in the world changes for the better, follow the tips to minimize risks.

Dating During the Coronavirus: Rules to Follow

Do you both feel impatient and plan to move from online dating to in-person dating? In this case, you should follow the tips from medical experts to make a meeting maximum safe.

  • Choose a café with the possibility to drink coffee outdoors. You should avoid dining indoors as it is unsafe for both of you. Staying in the air and following distancing rules is the only possible option if you want to avoid being infected with Covid.
  • Get some must-have products and take them with you. During the Pandemic, you are recommended to have a thermometer with the possibility to measure temperature without touching a person. A digital thermometer will help you to measure temperature if you or your partner feels bad wherever you are. You can find such a thermometer at Amazon.
  • Wear a mask. There are different types of masks for every season now. If it is cold, get a winter mask that will cover your neck and mouth. It will help you not to be cold if dining outdoors. The best way to protect yourself is to wear a standard disposable mask and then a neck gaiter combo. It’s how you will not only keep warm but also add extra protection from Covid-19. Medical experts remind you that you can wear a disposable mask for a couple of hours only and not longer. It means that you should think about this before the meeting and buy several disposable masks.
  • Don’t forget about gloves. If you stay in the outdoor café for long, you need to keep warm. Gloves are a must-have accessory for the winter cold. One more thing to keep in mind is that you should wear gloves not to touch anything as you never know who has touched the table or meal utensils before you. 
  • Remember that a high-quality sanitizer should be with you always. Today, you can get a sanitizer for your hands almost in every store. Don’t you want to smell like in the hospital on your first date? It isn’t a problem. You can choose a sanitizer with a tasty scent of vanilla, melon, etc. Use a spray or gel sanitizer each time you touch something without gloves.
  • Take a pack of tissues with you. If you plan to stay outside for long, you’ll definitely face a need to use a tissue as it is normal to have a runny nose in cold weather. Remember that you should use it only once, throw it away, and wash hands with the sanitizer after blowing your nose. 

Now you know what things to keep in mind during the first date. What about kissing? It is up to you to decide whether you want to take risks or not. The best option is to avoid close contact during the Pandemic to be on the safe side. If you need more time to learn about each other, you’d better chat online and continue virtual dating.
