How You Can Still Date Whilst Social Distancing

 

Dating might have taken a back seat for a lot of people, as it’s not been the most important thing over the last few months. As we’re ever so slightly getting back to some sort of normality, how can you start dating again whilst keeping to social distancing rules?

There are a number of ways you can still have dates and see if you have that special connection with the other person.

Here are just a few ideas to try if you want to get yourself back out there and start dating again.

A video call date

This is a great place to start before you decide to meet, as you can get an idea of whether you think the spark is there and whether you would actually like to meet up. You can gauge someone’s reactions and their tone and see their facial expressions.

Watch the same movie at the same time

 Pick a movie you both want to see and watch it at the same time – it means you can either discuss things throughout, as if you were together, or you can have a chat at the end about what you liked and what you didn’t like.

 Cook together

 Find a meal you both like and plan a time when you can cook together. You could video chat whilst doing it to see if you’re doing it the same way.

If cooking isn’t your thing, you could order the same takeaway, or for something more exciting – order takeaway for each other!

Go for a walk together

 Now we’re allowed to meet up with people from outside our household – whilst maintaining social distancing – why not go for a nice walk together? If you live on the coast, a nice seaside walk on a sunny day could be really romantic, or in your local park. You could even stop and have a picnic.

 Book a space in a pub garden

 Now that pubs are open again you could book a table in the garden and have an almost ‘normal’ date! Sit and have a few drinks and/or some food and hopefully some good conversation.

  

If you’re still looking for someone to date, how about giving Gay Adult Chat a try?! You can chat on the phone or by text on your mobile so join today!

Top Tips On How To Text Guys

Man relaxing laying down on a white sofa, left arm behind his head and looking at mobile phone in his right hand

What with being stuck at home, we’re having to find new ways to date and get to know people.

If you’ve never tried it before, text chat can be a great way to get to know guys, and now you’ve got all this spare time, what else are you going to do?!

Here are our top tips on texting guys and getting that conversation started.

Don’t leave it ages between messages.

We’re not saying you need to reply as soon as you receive the message, you don’t want to seem overly keen! But just reply as and when you have a moment to sit and read what you’ve received.

Try and keep on top of your spelling and grammar.

You might not thing it’s important, but they might. If you’re really paying attention to what they’re saying and putting effort into your replies, they’ll know, and it’ll get you in their good books!

You can still flirt!

Even though the conversation is written down rather than face to face, you can still be cheeky and flirty. This is a good time to be using emojis so they know what your intentions are!

Text them first.

When you get up in the morning, maybe whilst you’re having your cuppa or eating your toast, send them a quick message to say you hope they have a nice day. It means a lot and will open up the communication channel for the day.

Don’t ghost them.

Vanishing off the face of the earth is one of the worst things you can do! Apart from being upsetting, it lacks respect for the other person. If you’re not feeling it and don’t want to take things further then do the right thing and tell them. (You don’t need to be rude, though!).

 

If you’d like to put these into practice with some new guys, then join our great text chat now!

Gay Dating: Secure That All Important Second Date

Gay dating. You’re meeting up with someone you’ve met on Gay Adult Chat for the first time and want to make the best first impression. If you really like them, you’re going to want to get a second date in the bag. So what can you do to make sure you get it? Our tips below will help.

Make sure you’re on time.
It wouldn’t create the best first impression if you’re late on your first date with someone. Make sure you leave extra time for your journey to allow for any mishaps, as well as plenty of time to get ready beforehand. If you do end up running late, make sure you inform your date so they don’t think you’ve stood them up!

Dress appropriately for your date.
When going to a nice restaurant, make sure you wear something nice and make an effort. Equally if you’re just meeting for coffee, there’s no need to go overboard. You don’t need to spend hours worrying about your outfit, but your date will notice if you’ve put a bit of effort in.

Ask questions.
Make sure you get to know your date properly by asking them questions. It shows that you’re interested if you bother to find out things about them. For example ask about their career, basic information about their family, where they grew up etc. Keep it light hearted though, they don’t need to feel like they’re in an interview!

Make eye contact.
The best way to show your date that you’re interested is to maintain eye contact when they’re talking. This shows that you’re listening and paying attention to what they’re saying.
You can also see if they’re interested in you and what you’re saying if they’re maintaining eye contact with you as well.

Make sure there are no ‘barriers’ between you.
Try not to fold your arms or cross your legs as this creates a physical barrier between you and can portray that you’re not very open towards your date. You may also want to move things on the table so you have a better and clearer view of them whilst you’re talking.

Don’t keep checking your phone.
It’s okay to check the time or check if there are any emergencies a couple of times whilst you’re out. However repeatedly checking your phone makes it look like you don’t want to be there and aren’t interested in your date.
They should be your main focus whilst you’re together and if you’re interested you’ll want them to think that. Make sure you’re not distracted.

Pay your date compliments.
Obviously this is only if they are genuine! Do you like his jacket? – tell him. If you think his shoes are nice – tell him. If you think he has lovely eyes – TELL HIM! It’s nice to know your date likes things about you. It’ll help give you an idea of whether they’re into you or not – so show your appreciation!

So, follow our gay dating tips and get that first date by chatting to single guys on Gay Adult Chat and follow our tips to secure a second!

Why Is Talking On The Phone So Beneficial For Your Relationship?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve only just met or if you’ve been together for years, talking on the phone will always further your connection as a couple.

Our chatline is based around talking on the phone to other singles and we believe this is the best way to get to know someone before you meet them.

You can get a good idea of their sense of humour and what makes them tick. You can hear their tone of voice so you’re more likely to be able to get your point across and have a decent conversation.

You’ll also get immediate replies if you’re chatting one-to-one, rather than having to wait ages for them to text back!

Hearing someone’s voice is a big part of how attractive you find them. Voices are very personal and you’ll get a much better idea of someone by talking to them on the phone.

There’s also much less of a chance of what someone says being misinterpreted, which may cause friction and arguments, as you can immediately discuss it and put your point across much clearer than you would via a message.

If you would like to get chatting to singles in your area, call Gay Adult Chat today!

Ten Topics To Avoid On A First Date

 

You want to secure a second date so make sure you avoid talking about these topics.

 

  1. Politics.

You don’t need to know what their persuasion is on a first date. This could affect how much you like them/how well the date goes and there’s no need to talk about it. Keep conversation light hearted and get to know each other.

 

  1. Previous partners.

Do you really want to know what their last partner was like? You’ll probably just end up comparing yourself to them which is never a good thing. You also probably don’t want to know how many previous partners they’ve had or how many dates they’ve been on – it’s never what you want to hear!

 

  1. Money.

Never ask how much they earn or tell them how much you earn. Either way you won’t come across well. Keep it to simpler topics like hobbies or even just what they do for work.

 

  1. Religion.

Religion can be a very personal subject. Many people will not agree on religious subjects so it’s best not to bring this into conversation.

 

  1. Marriage/children.

This is definitely not a topic for a first date! You don’t want to scare them off so don’t bring up commitment until you’re both sure that’s where your relationship is heading.

 

  1. Work.

You can absolutely find out what each other does for a living but don’t moan about not liking your job or how much you dislike your colleague – your date isn’t interested! Also you don’t know if your date knows anyone you work with so it’s best not to moan about them!

 

  1. Yourself.

You will of course be talking about yourself when your date asks questions about you but don’t keep talking about yourself unprompted. Ask your date questions about themselves rather than banging on about yourself all the time.

 

  1. What you’re looking for.

Don’t get into a conversation about what sort of person you’re looking for, it only shows you as being high maintenance or picky (you’re allowed to be picky, just don’t let them know that!).

 

  1. Your own appearance.

If you put yourself down, your date won’t find this attractive. If you big yourself up they won’t find this attractive either. Let them compliment you if they want to and by all means compliment them but don’t mention your own appearance.

 

  1. Your family background.

By all means tell them how many siblings you have but there’s no need for any more detail than that, they’re on a date with you, not your entire family!
