Dating and Hookup apps in the era of Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

They should have a badge "super spreader of the month" for the most active service providers in those apps.

Those living as couples, families, or group situations are stuck together for better or worse.

You wish, Thai government reports only 50% of Thais are following these "orders" from the government.  "With the imposition of social distancing measures, which is currently being observed by only about 50% of the Thai population, he said that the number of infections is predicted to reach 17,600.  Could be as low as 7,700 if 80% of the population were to follow the measure."  https://www.thaipbsworld.com/grim-forecast-of-coronavirus-infections-refuted-by-senior-health-official/

Apps are not only about commercial sex. Again there are lots of apps with different niches. The point is that just meeting new people for anything is risky these days as far as this new virus, so should people really be using these apps now for whatever purpose if they intend to lead to actually meeting?

Maybe we need a Covid19 sex guide with illustrations on safe sex during the pandemic.

There is no such thing in this case unless you're talking about people that have Hazmat suit fetishes.

I'm not interested in the sexual morality part of it. People use the apps in different ways, there are different kind of apps, indeed it's not uncommon for people to find their marriage partner on the apps. But normally STDS are a risk but people can take measures to help prevent STDS and still date new people. But with this new virus just getting together for a coffee is likely to spread the virus.

Using Google search would show you many ways to find what you're looking for.

 

Of course, waiting for a virus test will be a big turn off.

 

Love is a crazy thing. 

 

Parks and saunas....

 

   Gay Romeo without Juliet, perhaps?

Personally even old friends I stay at least 6 feet away from.   We talk in the lobby, sitting a good 6 feet apart wearing masks, and a few of us have a beer outside by the pool in the evenings, but stay well apart.  Pool closed for swimming unfortunately though

No idea what your trip is with that post.

I didn't say I was looking for anything.

The topic is a general one about dating and hookup apps considering the issue of social distancing during this lockdown Coronavirus era.
