No good relationship is easy. Even more so during situations like what’s going on in the world right now. The current coronavirus lockdown is enough to test the most fantastic of relationships. You’re either stuck with each other 24/7 or you are completely separated. Both of which are very serious and can make dating and/or being in a relationship very difficult.
On the other hand, you’ve got all those single mums stuck indoors with no one to talk to other than their little ones. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to my daughter about Little Baby Bum and The Wiggles but sometimes enough is enough. I can’t begin to imagine how lonely lockdown must feel when you are alone and have no one to share it with.
Today I want to talk about all things relationship, sex, dating and love throughout this crazy time. I want couples that are fed up and currently ‘hating’ each other to know that they aren’t alone. As well as openly discussing the world of online dating and showing how it’s in no way shameful or embarrassing. Use lockdown wisely and connect with people who bring you nothing but happiness whether that’s in a relationship or not.
SINGLE MUM, REVEAL YOURSELF:
Are you a single mum looking to date? well then look no further because I’m going to show you exactly why you should go and create yourself a good dating profile RIGHT NOW. I may not be single but I definitely have spent a lot of years within that category. I have spent many evenings feeling sorry for myself in bed whilst googling ‘relationship goals’. I’ve also spent many nights swiping through that dreaded tinder app and even still I never found the one for me. I know exactly how lonely that place can feel so let’s get you out of it. Everyone deserves to experience lust/love and I’m going to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Why waste your time googling free dating sites UK and scrolling through endless amounts of useless sites (just like I did). This post will include everything you need to know and more so there’s no need to waste time. Before you know it you’ll be loved up, creating memories and fulfilling dreams with that special someone. If that’s not your kind of thing well there are plenty of people out their openly looking for a good time. You might even get yourself a post lockdown hook up scribbled into the diary. Who knows what the future holds for you?
GET YOURSELF ONLINE:
Online dating is a bit of a taboo subject but I want to help spread awareness on how good it can be. I wish more men and women in the world felt brave enough to try it because I’ve had nothing but positive experiences. As a mum, it’s quite a daunting feeling getting back into the world of dating. Having to find babysitters, finding the spare cash, or even having the energy to dress yourself up and go in the first place. Online dating gives you the option to get to know someone from the comfort of your own home and without all the extra stress.
I am very lucky to say that most people I’ve met online are actually still in my life now. It may not have ever worked romantically but that doesn’t mean I haven’t met some great people along the way.
If you have no idea where to start that’s absolutely fine. No need to worry because there are so many different dating match sites out there. matchmehappy.co.uk is definitely one of the best I’ve ever found. Many dating sites charges fees and I really don’t agree you should have to pay for love/lust/whatever you’re after. That’s exactly why this site ranks higher up on my list than any of the others.
10 REASONS ONLINE DATING DURING LOCKDOWN IS A GOOD THING.
- Gives you time to get to know each other on a much more emotional level.
- Builds tension and can make it all so much more exciting.
- There’s no pressure to dress yourself up every time you have a date.
- Don’t have to waste money on loads of unsuccessful dates.
- Can help prevent you from feeling like you’re alone at home.
- Might make you try something new that you’ve never done before.
- Meeting new people – whether it’s on a romantic level or not.
- It can be really exciting and who doesn’t love excitement.
- You might match with someone that you wouldn’t have necessarily bumped into in person.
- Know exactly what you’re getting yourself into before it’s too late.
DRAMA, BREAKUPS AND MORE:
Love during lockdown isn’t all fun and games either. I myself am in a relationship and lockdown has most definitely had it’s up and downs for us. No matter how great, strong and perfect a relationship may seem every couple will have relationship problems at some point or another.
Since spending 3/4 months in lockdown with my partner I have discovered many things I dislike. Apparently only seeing him in the mornings, evenings and weekends is plenty for me. I do not need the extra 5 full days as well as those mornings and evenings too. Lockdown has shown me that not only do I love my partner with all my heart but I also find him extremely irritating to be around 24/7 but that’s ok.
