How The Coronavirus Has Changed Relationships Forever

Changes in dating culture that we can expect in the near future.


The outbreak of the coronavirus has changed the world in ways few people could have expected, and it has also changed a lot of relationships. The viral outbreak has pulled many people together and pushed many people apart. The economic and social changes that coronavirus inflicted on the world have shaken up the dating culture permanently.

Hookup apps and websites quickly saw a massive reduction in users and interactions on their services as restaurants, cinemas, and many other date venues shut their doors. People were also more cautious about who they met, and when. The flip side of this meant many people moved in together for the first time, some temporarily and some permanently, as couples stuck together through the early lockdowns.

The coronavirus has changed the world forever, and it has also changed our relationships. Here we are going to take a look at the changes in dating culture and relationships that we can expect in the near future.
