Celebrating Valentine’s Day during a pandemic

New Delhi: They say love is in the air, but COVID-19 makes it hard for couples to get along. Many cities have imposed restrictions and partial lockdowns. How will this affect Valentine’s Day plans?

Online dating site QuackQuack surveyed its users to find out how rising cases of the new variant are once again affecting their plans for the big day. Of the participants, 64% lived in the same city as their partner, while 36% were in a long-distance relationship.

Video calling is still a lifesaver
More than half of female users, 58%, felt it was safe to spend this Valentine’s Day at home as they did last year. However, only 34% of men want to be the same as women. They plan virtual appointments and make the most of that time. Couples may try to get close and make things spicy.

Long-distance relationships are the worst
The dilemma of falling in love only across the screen, in a long-distance relationship, or not seeing each other for months is tough. Due to restrictions on flying and fears of the virus spreading, most long-distance couples have decided to stay home for the safety of their loved ones. In the survey, 73% (83% of women and 62% of men) long-distance dating users mentioned that they hadn’t seen their partner in more than 6 months.

ready to go out
Most men (68%) plan to fly to their partner’s city if the government does not impose travel restrictions. And for users in the same city, 69% plan to go to a restaurant or indulge in some fun activity while adhering to all guidelines. This includes 68% women and 70% men.

Women’s Beaches, Men’s Mountains
What is Valentine’s Day if not celebrated around beaches and mountains? After all, love is an adventure. Even during the pandemic, 31% of users want to celebrate V-day with romantic views in different cities. Most female users prefer the beach, while a large number of men want to do something adventurous with their partner, like hiking or hiking.

Valentine’s week planning/waiting for hugs and kisses
In addition to Valentine’s Day, there are seven different days. Every day that comes will lead to the final big V day. The survey found that, in addition to V-days, 88% of users are excited about kiss days (42%), hug days (28%) and marriage proposal days (18%). After all, kisses and hugs have been under surveillance for more than two years.

The pandemic has made couples do things they never thought possible. From proposing over video calls to online movie date nights, couples are bracing for the worst.
