I live in a city, so I know how tricky it can be to navigate the dating world against that backdrop. There are lots of people around and you may see somebody once, but never again. Throw in a global pandemic and things get even more complicated. So how can you date in a city in 2021? Here, I explain.
Be honest about your intentions
The first thing you need to do, if you’re looking for somebody, is to be honest about it and open to the idea. Love and romance isn’t automatically off the cards because of restrictions. Life hasn’t stopped.
So tell your friends that you’d be open to meeting somebody and make no secret of the fact that you’re in the market for romance. If people don’t know you’re available, then how will you be found? Sadly, Mr or Mrs Right isn’t going to knock on your front door, because you’ve decided that you’d like to meet somebody. A thought is not enough!
Consider internet dating
If there’s one thing that’s better than speaking about your intentions, it’s acting upon them!
Internet dating is a popular way for singles to connect and if you’d to meet somebody that lives close by, then you can join a site dedicated to singles in that area. Those interested in Glasgow Dating can join a site dedicated to that, so they can connect with other singles the city. The advantage of joining a Glasgow Dating site is that you won’t make a connection with somebody that is based in Land’s End, who you’d then struggle to actually meet in person!
City life is all about pubs, cinemas and restaurants, but obviously we are having to live with restrictions at the moment. But don’t let that stop you from connecting with other singles. You can date virtually and it doesn’t have to be boring. Instead of just having a video chat, you could have a cheese and wine evening (where you both taste cheese and drink wine together, but virtually). Or, if that’s not your thing, you could both eat takeaway food over a video call, or even watch a film! Yes, you might need to get creative, but there’s no reason why you can’t still enjoy city date activities that you love.
Explore the city when you can
Restrictions are gradually lifting and we all sincerely hope that better times are coming. So, providing you feel comfortable, make sure you explore the city when you can. This could be by sitting in a pub beer garden, sitting outside a restaurant, or simply take a stroll by the canal. You can enjoy getting to know the city again, with a potential love interest!
