Working in The Dating Industry Could Not Prepare Me For The Challenges of Pandemic Dating

For someone who has yet to leave New York City during COVID-19, quarantine has had a few ups (family time and career progress), a few downs (RIP nightlife), and more often than not, romantic loneliness (yep, I said it).

It’s tough out there.

Two days later, the conversation unexpectedly stalled, the Instagram DM’s faded, and our plans for the week ahead went unplanned. Hail Mary number two: a casual phone call to check-in and plan our next date.

Despite some marginal success on the apps, I remain mostly confused about what happens next in the world of dating. But ever optimistic.
