Ready to meet face to face?

Now restrictions are easing and we’re being encouraged to venture out again, how can dating be approached safely? Our usual, time-tested advice is to meet in person within two weeks of making a connection online but that’s been impossible! Instead we’ve seen more and more conversations online and the innovative ways members have used technology to develop connections, date and get to know each other better. Our video chat option has allowed members to talk ‘face to face’ without leaving the site and online events have created fun opportunities to meet and mix.

Celebrating special moments – remotely

If you’ve just started messaging or are in the early stages of getting to know someone, not being able to meet for regular dates can be tricky. Video chat, calls and messaging can help bridge the gap, but that trickiness can be multiplied when it comes to marking a special occasion – a birthday or a new job.

Getting the most out of online meetups

Have you discovered online meetups yet? Organised virtual social events are a popular way for people to meet and get to know each other better while meeting face-to-face is difficult.

Finding love during lockdown – defining a new relationship

When it comes to connecting with someone on a dating site, you’re probably aware of the usual advice to meet in person as soon as possible. Well, coronavirus has certainly thrown a spanner in the works with that! While restrictions are being relaxed in some places, you may not be able to meet in person easily, safely or even legally for some time. Some fortunate souls might be able to meet for a socially-distanced walk or picnic – assuming you don’t need public transport to get there, and until one of you needs the bathroom!

Communicating well when you can’t meet in person

“Communication is key” – how many times do we hear that? It’s crucial in all relationships. From the moment I first started talking on Christian Connection with the man who is now my husband, we were polar opposites in regard to our hours, vicinity and quite frankly, our lives!
