The news is out. Restaurants and bars will now be opening from July 4th!

Man biking nails and excited

In the UK – a sigh of relief for singles who haven’t yet braved a sober park date amidst the slow end to lockdown. Nonetheless, having not frequented a bar since early March it’s likely that you’ll need to brush up on the new etiquette of online dating in 2020 – a subtle art of showing interest whilst keeping your distance! Without further ado, here are Five Dating Tips Post-Lockdown:

Greet from 3.28 Feet.

Or one metre, to be precise. Gone are the days of stressing over how to greet your date; wondering whether to go in for a suave kiss on the cheek or a more formal handshake (which inevitably ended up as a strained hug!)

Now you can confidently settle for a socially-distanced wave – or an elbow bump if you’re feeling a little friskier.

Sanitiser is the new cologne.

Once upon a time, the right cologne would send a girl weak at the knees. Now, the reassuring smell of hand sanitiser is the surest way to gain some brownie points. Make sure to keep a small bottle to hand on all of your dates.

“The eyes are the windows to the soul” – well, the Victorians certainly thought so. In fact, youngsters of the era developed a whole new language of flirting using their eyes and fans to communicate their intent to prospective lovers. Whilst we don’t expect you to whip out a fan on your next date, we do recommend you practice your best Blue-Steel pose with your face mask on.

No Licking Rims

Cocktail bars will likely still be a regular first-date hangout, however tasting each other’s concoctions is so 2019. Out of all dating tips, one can becomes relevant in particular. Avoid sipping from each other’s glasses and instead add a little fun by choosing each other’s drinks.

The End of Serial Daters

That’s right, for those of you who are self-admitted players, you’ll need put your loose ways to rest post-lockdown. Gone are the days of lining dates up back-to-back – unless of course the hook-up you’re looking for is an IV drip at your local hospital.

To avoid exposing yourself to lots of new people, try to date one person at a time – it’s not a commitment to marriage – it’s just a safe way to meet someone new whilst still being cautious and protecting yourself.
