I am single and live in my own bedroom. During the Coronavirus lockdown, shutdown, meltdown, stay at home era or whatever you want to call it, I am not meeting other people. In the last 24 days, the only people I have been within a metre of were two shop assistants in my local shop in Warszawa. I have left the flat for 1 hour 43 minutes in 24 days, even that feels guilty and shameful – it should have been zero. So that is my situation, but what about the rest of the world? People in relationships have more time at home, to experiment and well to run out of condoms and to have more sex. Ultimately, this will probably happen. A baby boom will be due in 9 months time…
I look back on my time in England from time to time and ponder what might have been. I could have stayed there. I worked on the ferries to the Isle of Wight. At the time, I liked the remoteness of it all, indulging in Isle of Wight dating, to no avail in the end. Now that I am locked at home, with all the sensible and human people doing the same. Only assholes go outside now unless it is an emergency.
So aside from the likely baby boom for those staying at home and getting into deep sex, what are the options for singletons like me?
Well going out to bars, speed dating, dinner dates are all off the menu, so online dating it is!! I found three good websites for online chat and dating, and once the shutdown of Coronavirus eases, maybe even meeting up and who knows…sex.
I used to live in Bournemouth in the south of England anh had great fun there. If you are home alone during the shutdown, some regional websites can help you connect and find love or just chat online. Examples of these include the Bedfordshire dating site and Wiltshire sex site. Once you connect, you can even look for alternative ways to find pleasure.
I simply love the Channel Islands. As a nationalist and separatist, I fully recognise Sark, Herm, Guernsey, Alderney and Jersey as separate. I loved my time in Sark. In Guernsey, I had my first snog in months with a Latvian girl in 2009, it was really nice, other options for St. Peter Port include joining a Guernsey sex site. I had good times in Guernsey and it is a really separate island with its own unique passion and culture.
The big lights of London are always something to attract you to. I spent a year working there and loved it. However these days, with social distancing, it is a dodgy place to be as many locals still break the rules the government set. People are still going out to parks. The alternative is to stay at home and use London dating sites to meet people online. There are so many video platforms to use – Zoom, Skype, Whats App, Google Hangouts, Webex, Whereby, Facebook Messenger etc. This is a chance to meet people online.
So let’s wait and see how long it takes for the world to recover from this deadly disease. It is a testing time, but for sure dating and love must go on. The love of your life awaits you, somewhere out there!
