The past few weeks have seen a lot of changes – thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
Singletons have only been able to mingle through virtual dating, with Zoom leading the way for online dating and sexting.
In fact, BARE Dating has seen an increase of 60% of new users in both the UK and US.
Other dating apps including Bumble and Inner Circle are seeing a 50% boost of singles asking each others out on video dates.
While these are all ways of daters keeping up on the scene, how can you keep the flames alive during lockdown?
Gillian Myhill, founder of the BARE Dating and a sex and dating expert, has given Daily Star Online the lowdown.
She said: “Many of us are finding ourselves separated from our partners during this time, we are all feeling stressed and anxious.
“Maintaining that emotional and physical connection now requires some creativity.
“Keep that date night – make the effort to make yourself presentable, yes that means dressing up!
“Share a cocktail recipe, set the scene, send a Spotify list to your partner to get them in the mood.”
Gillian said that technology plays a huge part in keeping the romance in the relationship.
She continued: “It’s surprising how much chemistry can translate across video. You can still gaze into each other’s eyes and tease.
“You can use props for those who are looking to be a whole lot naughtier over video and you can get creative by writing a fantasy.
“The planning will both get you excited, there is also a great range of long-distance sex toys which can stimulate your partner.”
The sexpert suggests products from Lovense who sell long-distance toys to improve anyone’s sex life.
And for those who are new to the game, start slowly and ask questions to find out what your partner finds desirable.
Gillian continued: “Sending instructions can be extremely tantalising.
“You are only limited here by your imagination.”
