Dating in the twenty-first century can feel overwhelming and complicated, but add in a global pandemic, and it can feel impossible. How are you supposed to find love if you can’t even leave your apartment? As our society has become more and more digital, it’s estimated that almost 40% of couples meet online. This is up from just 2% twenty-five years ago, and the number is expected to continue to rise in the coming years. But even with so many couples meeting online, the process can be daunting.
For finding love during Covid-19 there are countless dating apps for you to choose from, and at the end of the day, many of them seem incredibly similar. You judge someone based on their looks and maybe a few quick facts or sentences that may or may not be true. While there are successes with this method, finding your perfect match this way seems highly unlikely.
For many people, the COVID-19 pandemic was a wake-up call to just how lonely they are. Since they were no longer able to go to work, or out to see their friends, they spent a lot more time alone, and many people struggled with how to get rid of that loneliness. Those who turned to online dating had to deal with the reality of being stuck at home and unable to meet their potential match. It’s incredibly hard to begin a relationship through the phone.
Throughout the last year, there have been a handful of heartwarming stories of couples beating the odds and finding love during the Covid-19. At the start of lockdown in New York City, Jeremy Cohen, a Brooklyn-based photographer, looked out his apartment window and saw a girl dancing on the roof of the building across the street. He went out on his balcony to wave at her, and when she waved back, he knew he needed to find out more about her. Cohen used his drone to fly a piece of paper with his phone number on it to the girl, Tori Cignarella. He made a series of Tiktoks documenting the dating process while remaining socially distanced. It began with the two having dinner on their respective rooftops while facetiming and for their second date Cohen put himself in a bubble so he could walk down the street next to Cignarella. His videos resulted in over one million followers on Tiktok and over twenty million likes. The pair’s story was shared on the news around the world and six months on they’re still going strong. This story was just what the internet needed at the start of lockdown, but not everyone’s perfect match will be living just across the street.
For those of us, who need a little more help finding love during the Covid-19, online dating is the next best solution. If you’re looking for a real connection and more than just a hook-up, ClickDate is the best platform to find your perfect match. ClickDate is a new matchmaking site that matches singles based on a deeper level of information. Unlike apps like Tinder or Bumble, ClickDate looks to create long-lasting love connections by using a modern approach to psychology. The app analyses your clicks to understand your preferences and match you using that information as well as matchmaking statistics. ClickDate feels that this distinct approach makes more meaningful and long-lasting connections. With many dating apps, you are picking people based on looks and a façade they put up, by matching using behaviors, you’re much more likely to be genuinely compatible. The people that ClickDate matches you with will truly compliment your personality rather than just being what you think you want.
Before starting ClickDate, we spent a long time creating the unique physiological approach behind our matchmaking system to make sure that you’re getting the best matches possible without having to answer a myriad of meaningless questions. We simply need you to answer a few questions specifying your wants and don’t wants and any traits that are important or unimportant to you. We understand that you don’t want to waste your time talking to people you aren’t compatible with, we do the work for you so you can focus on finding your perfect match.
