The global pandemic has had a big impact on our world. For some people, it’s meant a huge change in priorities, as well as starting to think differently about your future.
Dating before the pandemic was a lot more straightforward, despite being hard at times! But it’s now set to be even harder, which is why it’s important to think about what you want. As things start to go back to normal, or at least as normal as they can be, you’ll need to revisit the dating world and get yourself back out there.
Here are some things to think about when it comes to dating post-pandemic.

Think about what you really wantLife is short, and it’s important to make the most of the time we have. When it comes to relationships and dating, you need to think about what you really want. This begins with focusing on yourself and thinking about what you want from life. Taking steps to boost your own confidence can help you give you greater clarity, while ensuring your own happiness comes first.
Find someone who shares your ideas and interestsOne of the most important rules of dating is not to waste your time. You don’t want to spend time with someone who doesn’t share your views and ideas on life and your future. You should have discussions about Christian dating and marriage at an early stage to make sure you both know where you stand. Spending the rest of your life with someone is an important step to make, and by finding someone who shares your beliefs and interests, you can look forward to a happy marriage.
Don’t feel pressuredThere can be a lot of pressure on women (and men) to be in a relationship, especially as you start getting older. But it’s important not to let other people’s expectations and opinions affect your choices. It’s important that the path you take feels right for you, and that your own happiness takes priority. If dating isn’t your priority right now, be sure to pursue your other interests and do the thighs you want to do.
Expand your horizonsIf you’re feeling frustrated by dating right now, it might be time to expand your horizons. Finding the right church could help you meet some new people, and potentially the love of your life. Get out there and socialize and connect with some like-minded people - you never know where it might leave.
The pandemic has left a lot of people with uncertainty, but it doesn’t all have to be negative. Now is a time to reflect on what you want and to put your own happiness first. While it might feel more difficult to date during a pandemic, it’s not impossible, so when things calm down, and you’re ready to re-enter the dating scene, do it with confidence and faith and see where it takes you.
