Online dating has increased in popularity since the pandemic began, but some people are finding love in less typical scenarios than before. Jermey and his girlfriend started dating after lockdown when Jermey saw her dancing across the street from her. Since then, the pair have eaten dinner on their respective balconies, together but apart, and gone on socially distant walks together.

is the act of finding love. People are using dating APS more. Both Tinder and Bumble have reported an increase in daily messages and user engagement. Other APS have added a video chat feature, and some people are reaching out in ways I would have never imagined. I looked out my window and saw this girl dancing, perhaps to a tic tac song. I needed to say hi to her. She waved out on the balcony. She waved back. That's the start of a story you may have heard before. It's from a video on Tick Tock by Jeremy Cohen, a photographer from Brooklyn, New York After Jeremy Waves to the dancing girl, he flies his drone over with his cell phone number. She picked up my drone, and I guess it works because I got a text from her. An hour later, Jeremy's video went viral. If we're still allowed to say that it has over 30 million views on tick tock now, I'm not at all surprised. It's the meat cute of our time.

We had dinner, except it was another restaurant is she was on her roof and I was on my balcony. It was so funny because we'd be talking to the other on FaceTime. And then sometimes I like, look over like I'd see him there and then we'd look at each other. It was like such a weird scenario. It was lovely, and it lasted until her phone died. On another date, Jeremy went inside a huge plastic bubble so he and Tory could take a walk. I just couldn't stop laughing. I, like, hit the ground. Basically, I just was not expecting to see him in a bubble. It's a lot more effort to go through than your average date, and it's hard to express the usual social and physical cues when you're 6 ft apart. But there are things about this new normal that for Jeremy Cohen surprisingly work well. It's really nice to get to know her and just not have any of this pressure or like at the end of the date, like okay, I'm not going home. Or am I. Um, I got invited back to my place. This awkward moment of Okay, What is the other person thinking? I don't wanna be too forward, but
