An Isolation Update from Us: Thoughts & Tips on Dating Throughout the Crisis

While we’ve been working remotely at Two’s Company, we’ve had time to catch up with clients, think about our distance dating tips, along with speaking with the many new enquiries. So, what have we learned?

On New Enquiries:

Some things about the human spirit persist, even in crisis: namely, our hunger for one another. This time of slowing down has pushed us all to the realisation of what is important. And for many, that is having a partner. Day after day we’ve spoken with people, from all walks of life, who tell us how much they wish they had joined an agency before the pandemic. But not to worry! We have a lot to look forward to! Please don’t hesitate to submit your enquiry with us and we will contact you for a friendly, confidential chat about finding your partner in the future.

For now, the main thing is to stay safe. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming new clients and matching many happy couples in time to come. 

On Current Clients:

This has been a brilliant time to check in with people. It’s interesting to hear how Covid-19 has effected each of our lives in so many different ways, particularly our dating lives. Before the lock-down, we heard from some couples who were thoroughly enjoying walking dates. Now, with the extra restrictions in place, we’ve heard from people who are scheduling calls every day, and coming up with creative ways to date from a distance. We wish them all the very best. 

If you are a current client and have not spoken with us in a while, please don’t hesitate to catch up with us!

Our Distance Dating Tips:

Being isolated from your partner is a huge adjustment, and you may feel a little more needy than before. However, it is unwise to be overly “sticky” and possessive. You two don’t really have to communicate 12 hours a day to keep the relationship going. Many couples think that they need to compensate for the distance by doing more. This is not true. And it might only make things worse. Particularly given the circumstances, people are processing the pandemic in different ways and may need space. 

Remember: Less is more. It is not about spamming — you are only going to exhaust yourselves. It’s really about teasing at the right moments and tugging at the right spots.

Our advice to clients, whether newly matched or long term dating, is to view this period as a learning journey for the both of you. As the Chinese saying goes, “Real gold is not afraid of the test of fire.”

Set some expectations! Both of you need to be clear with what you expect of each other during this long distance relationship.
