Tips for dating in Lockdown:

1. Go on The Second Date, Even If You Didn’t Feel That Spark on The First Date:
* Many of the best couples don’t spark on first dates as some people take longer to open up and show who they are.
* This is especially true right now when more daters are feeling stressed and anxious during the pandemic.
* Don’t let someone great pass you by just because they aren’t instantly charismatic in that first meeting.

2. Watch Out for Red Flags — Rushing Through Relationship Milestones:
* Make sure someone is really trying to get to know you for you who are and not just looking for someone to fill the role of a future partner.
* Don’t rush through relationship milestones, like building report and emotional bonds.

3. Be Honest with Yourself Entering into Your New Relationship:
* If you’re considering being exclusive with someone, take a moment to reflect on your dating journey with that person.
* What are your real motivations?
* Do you want to be with this person, or do you just not want to be alone?
* Are you running to this person or away from being single?
* How do you feel about this person?
* Can you be yourself around them?
