Can't blame gravity for falling in love, download Clover!
Everything may be canceled, but love isn’t!
Even though people are social distancing and physically can’t date, the reality’s that the desire for human connection is stronger than ever in this unprecedented time.
With all the chaos in the world, what better way to quiet down the madness than with recounting surprising moments of LOVE! While the real scientists work on a vaccine for COVID-19, we’ll just distract ourselves with all the surprising ways physical distancing has actually positively affected love to get us through the day.
1. Dating apps are lit right now
The Clover App’s seen a 30% spike in new users since news of the outbreak which isn’t unusual seeing as KinkD also has reported an increase in their app usage. The more people physically isolate, the more we tend to figure out ways to get what we need. Dating apps are a great way to feel that human connection without putting yourself at risk by leaving the house.
2. A man went to LENGTHS to ask this woman out on a date via drone and then TOOK HER OUT IN A BUBBLE
It’s nice to see COVID-19 hasn’t killed chivalry ’cause clearly it’s alive and well and living entirely inside this guy.
“Flirting was normally daunting for me, but since I’ve been quarantining in my apartment for a week now, I was craving some social interaction, 2020 has been off to a terrible start, but I still needed to shoot my shot.”Jeremy Cohen, Man In The Bubble
So, shoot your shot even if you’re in quarantine and even if you have to send it by mailing pigeon!
