The deadly COVID-19 has put a stop to in-person dating. With the 6-meter distance rule intact, there’s no way physical dating remains an option. What’s the next best and viable option then? An online dating site for flirting until the pandemic loosens its vigor.
It’s true that online dating can feel somewhat overwhelming with innumerable options in hand, and you becoming an option, too. Not only this, but making judgments based on pictures, bios, and sending DMs to strangers, online dating is an entirely different game.
Statistica states in a study that online dating will increase its population up to 37.5 million users by 2023. With the sheer number of dating sites, which one should you choose? Here are some of the best online dating applications you should use to flirt and find your other half.
