Living in the United States can be very lonely especially if you are not originally from here. American society is designed for individuality which is one of the main reasons social distancing is so difficult. Due to social independence more so by women, they are no longer dependent on men like they used to be back in their grandparents’ days. Unfortunately, this has caused people to live lonely lives.
As social creatures, we must be connected to a tribe. It even impacts our health so much that limited and inconsistent social networking can have a more damaging effect on your health than obesity and smoking. It is said that often the reason why so many people pass away after they retire is due to the lack of social interaction.
Relationships strengthen our immune system and help us quickly recover from an illness which is one more reason why during this time when we’re facing a global pandemic with coronavirus, connectivity is needed now more than ever.
Of course, it’s challenging to date especially someone new if you can’t physically be with them so I’ve compiled 15 Tips For Dating In Quarantine:
