One Year After Quarantine: Dating and Partnerships in the Time of
COVID-19, Part II:
A Virtual Conversation with
Dr. Helen E. Fisher
Wednesday, April 14, at 7 pm EDT on Zoom
- How has the pandemic changed dating for the better?
- Is video the new first date?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of “virtual dating”?
- What do you do when your significant other drives you crazy?
- Can being together 24/7 improve your relationship or will it destroy it?
On Wednesday, April 14, Science Writers in New York invites you to join us on Zoom for a second conversation with Dr. Helen E. Fisher, biological anthropologist and senior research fellow at the Kinsey Institute, and SWINY co-chair David Levine on dating in the era of COVID-19.
Helen will discuss her life one year after lockdown (she got married!), how the pandemic has changed dating for the better and Match.com’s 10th Singles in America survey, which found that 71 percent of singles spent quarantine without sex, but one in four had sex with their roommate and 75 percent of singles want a partner who shares their political beliefs, up 25 percent in just three years.
