When it comes to New Hampshire singles, COVID-19 has undoubtedly taken its toll. However, we’re finding the effects to be from one end of the spectrum to the other, depending on circumstance. From making better connections with matches to fighting intense loneliness, the spectrum is broad.
In this article, we’re taking a look at all sides of the pandemic’s effect on New Hampshire dating.
While online dating may be suitable for some, it’s not for everyone. And now, more than ever before, people are finding it easier to find the right one with social distancing in place. With less pressure on the physical contact of dating, there is more focus on the moment. Because of this, people are making an effort to find someone that they genuinely connect with versus cycling through potential options and hoping for the best.
Some call it “getting back to the good old days.” You know, when people sat around without a device and interacted with one another. Enjoying a social distance walk, spending time having a conversation over a cup of coffee or glass of wine, genuinely enjoying the moment.
With an increase in outdoor physical activity, people are increasing the release of endorphins, dopamine, and adrenaline – all chemicals founds within the brain and known to produce happiness.
Mental health concerns
On the flip side, you have thousands fighting mental illnesses of all magnitude. With record numbers of Americans filing for unemployment, stress levels are also peaking. From fears of losing your home to worries of the ever-growing pile of bills going unpaid, the economic situation is creating potentially devastating results. Especially to those battling mental health concerns.
From depression to anxiety, the toll of the pandemic has turned many inward. With numerous amounts of fear spinning through the country, the thought of romance has taken a back burner. People are focusing on survival, the well-being of their family, and trying to hold onto friendships in a digital world.
