At the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the self-isolation has become a new global trend. How does the global quarantine affect the online dating market?
Many large online platforms, in accordance with the WHO regulations, recommend to reduce the number of the social contacts and to restrict yourself only to the virtual dates. Dating companies report the number of their users has increased dramatically in the recent weeks. The social distancing does not necessarily mean the total disconnection. With the help of dating sites, people continue to communicate and support each other.
In order to stop the coronavirus epidemic around the world, the number of places for dating has been significantly reduced. Bars, restaurants, clubs and discos were closed indefinitely.
The users from countries, especially those affected by the pandemic, have become even more active after the restrictions of their social contacts.
Lack of communication between people is one of the negative consequences of the coronavirus.
As more and more people work from home now, having cancelled all their social plans, without the possibility to travel, some of them already feel lonely and a little isolated.
According to users, the “sudden lack of communication” between people has become one of the main negative consequences of the pandemic. And the online applications, in this case, are extremely useful, because they allow you to find people with whom you can chat, even through the Internet.
