How do you think dating is changing (especially due to the pandemic) and what will happen in the near future?
People have certainly reevaluated their priorities and casual flings have become less relevant for many. Pre-pandemic, single life was fun; festivals, parties, hanging out with different friends every day of the week… but take that away and it really highlights the downside of being single. There has been a noticeable drop in the average age of my clients in the last 6 months because many of the opportunities that were previously there, for younger people to meet organically have all but disappeared. Fingers crossed in the not too distant future, we will all be out and about again but hopefully the renewed priorities will last a little longer.
