As people were confined to their homes to stem the spread of coronavirus , their lives moved online more than ever, and many embraced the virtual realm for dating as much as they did pub quizzes, the latest theatre releases and brilliant classical concerts from across the globe. Over half of users stuck to online messaging during lockdown, and over 17 percent indicated that they were excited about meeting up with their dates after lockdown - the highest response given, compared to other activities listed that included going to the hairdresser 16 percent , eating out 15 percent going to the pub 10 percent and going to a concert or sporting event also 10 percent. But we emailed each other every day from the beginning and for the last few weeks have been video-messaging every evening as well. Unfortunately, the second date was thwarted by Storm Ciara as train lines were flooded, so Jennifer and her date made plans for another meet-up two weeks later - only to be hampered by another storm.
