Keep The Spark Alive Whilst Social Distancing

An image of a brunette woman indoors at home on grey sofa using mobile phone

Social Distancing is difficult enough as it is, being apart from friends and family, but if you’re apart from your partner it can be even more difficult as you won’t get that close contact and intimacy that you’re used to.

So how can you keep that spark alive whilst isolated separately? We’ve compiled a list of suggestions of things to try.

Video calls

These are important as you can then see each other and it’s easier just to have a normal chat.

Some options offer in-house games as well, like Houseparty, which offers a couple of games that you can play with 2 or more people.

Cook together

You can use these video calls to do things together like cook a meal. Decide in advance what you’re going to make so that you can both get the ingredients and then make and eat a meal together. Light a candle to make it a little romantic!

If cooking isn’t your thing, order the same type of takeaway together, or order a takeaway for each other!

Play some games

Find multiplayer online games or games on your phone you can play against each other. Some apps have built in games you can play whilst chatting. Set up a games night where you have some drinks and snacks and spend some time “together”.

Watch a movie together

You can pre-arrange a time to sit down and watch the same movie (or TV series), pressing play at the same time. Just make sure you can agree on what to watch beforehand!

Get frisky!

Being apart doesn’t mean you can’t be intimate with each other. If you’ve never tried it, now is the perfect time to try some phone sex or sexting to keep that fire burning!

Don’t worry if you’re single and don’t have anyone to virtually date at the moment, Chat2Date is the UK’s busiest chat line so go chat to singles from all over the UK on your phone!

5 Top Tips For Texting Girls

Texting girls is not something that necessarily comes naturally to guys. Well, men are from Mars and women from Venus after all!

We’ve got some great tips to help you get that conversation started and keep it going when you’re texting someone new.

Don’t leave it too long between messages.

It can mean the difference of keeping the girl interested and her losing interest completely.
Equally though, don’t reply too quickly! If you’re always replying immediately then she might get a bit suspicious – why are you always free and why is your phone always stuck to your hand?!
You need to find a middle ground and pay attention to when she replies as well.

Make sure your spelling and grammar are up to scratch.

Take your time over the reply and make sure you’ve not used any ‘text speak’ or misspelled anything. Try to match her intellect and sophistication with your replies and keep an eye on how she texts as if she’s not so bothered about it, then you can mirror that.

Try and use emojis.

It’s a great way of ensuring your point is read as intended. There’s no tone of voice by written text so using an emoji can portray that you’re joking about something or that it’s a nice message rather than something rude or inappropriate. Just don’t use too many or you’ll look a little over excited.

Try to avoid texting for the sake of texting.

If you’ve genuinely got things to chat about, that’s great, but don’t force it. There’s no point going into detail about something she’s really not interested in, or talking about the weather when neither of you care! Try and find things you both like to keep the conversation flowing.

You can still flirt when texting – be a little bit cheeky!

You’ve got to make sure it’s well received however. If she’s not interested and not flirting back then don’t continue texting, but if you get the green light, go ahead! Emojis can be very useful here, especially the winking face!

Fancy putting some of these into practice? Text girls now with Chat2Date!

Great Date Ideas For Autumn

Man and woman on date making heart shape with their hands
 

As summer draws to a close and the temperature starts to drop, what sort of dates are there that are still romantic? We’ve listed a few date ideas below.

Wrap up warm and go for a walk in your local park.
As the leaves start to fall and crunch under your feet, the colours become magical. Going for a stroll in a local park can be really romantic. You can also snuggle up together to keep warm!

Find a nice pub with a log fire.
You might be a little cold if you’ve gone for an autumn walk so find a lovely local pub with a burning log fire to warm yourselves back up again.

Cook dinner together.
This may not sound exciting but cooking dinner or baking something warming together can be a really fun activity. You could cook a nice roast dinner or bake a lovely pie for dessert. Working together can strengthen your bond and you may even learn new things about each other!

Watch a movie.
This doesn’t sound like a great date idea, however as it gets colder outside it gives you an excuse to snuggle up together under a blanket, maybe even with a hot chocolate.

Read a book.
If that’s not your thing, why not swap your favourite books and read together?
If you both enjoy reading, recommend your favourite book and read each other’s together. It might not sound like a ‘date’ but you can pause after chapters and have a discussion about what’s happened and your favourite parts.

Go on a bike ride.
Going on a bike ride is a great way to have fun together. Find a nice cycle trail and stop off somewhere along the way. The exercise will keep you warm!

Go to your favourite coffee shop.
Something as simple as going for a coffee together can get you out of the daily grind and give you some quality time together. If you want to, you can order each other a new drink to try and have a little fun.

Make the most of the autumn weather before it gets too cold and go on some dates together.

If you’re looking for that special someone to go on these dates with, check out Chat2Date today!

Why Talking On The Phone Helps Your Relationship

Happy woman in cafe talking on the phone in relationship

Whether you’ve been together for a long time or are just embarking on a new relationship, make sure you talk on the phone regularly, don’t get comfortable always communicating by text.

One of the most prominent issues when text messaging is misinterpretation. All you are presented with is some text on a screen. There is no tone, no volume and it’s much harder to understand what someone may mean.

If you talk on the phone, you are able to hear the mood someone is in and how they are coming across. This could help avoid any misunderstandings which could lead to arguments.

We know texting is really convenient but with autocorrect and the possibility of spelling mistakes and abbreviations, what you want to say may come across totally different to someone who is reading it. It’s much easier to get your point across when you can have a real-time person to person discussion as you can ask questions and get immediate answers.

Phone calls can strengthen your connection with each other, not only in new relationships but with long standing ones too.

Hearing each other’s voices is much more intimate than viewing words on a screen. If you know them well enough you’ll be able to hear certain cues in their voice so you know how to react to what it is they’re saying.

You’re also more likely to be giving them your full attention – or at least more than you would be if you were texting – showing that you care about them and are interested in what they are saying.

If you’re at the beginning of a relationship you are able to get to know someone much better by talking on the phone. Texting is so impersonal; you are unable to get your personality across in a text. If you talk regularly on the phone you will get to know each other’s sense of humour and how they are feeling.

One thing that can also be a major issue for some people with text messages is waiting for a reply. Some people will see it as similar to having a face-to-face conversation, where you take it in turns to reply to each other, but others don’t see it like this and can take much longer to reply without realising the other person is waiting. When talking on the phone you’re going to get an immediate reply as the person is mostly focusing on you, rather than doing other things at the same time meaning they might not reply immediately.

So whether you’re dating or married, chatting on the phone has huge benefits for your relationship!

Valentine’s Day When You’re In A New Relationship

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, you need to make sure that you both know where you stand.

Make sure you talk about it beforehand. You might have totally differing opinions on Valentine’s Day so it’s worth talking it through. You don’t want to get them a present if they’re not going to get you anything or vice versa as it would be totally embarrassing!

If you’re not yet ‘exclusive’ it’s best to ignore it all together. You don’t want to put pressure on them when you’ve only been on a couple of dates as it could end up being very awkward.

If you are ‘exclusive’ keep it minimal. It’s fine to have a date on Valentine’s Day but there’s no need to do anything extravagant. Don’t go all out and buy presents if it hasn’t been talked about previously.

If you need some simple, no-pressure date ideas, give these a try:

  • If the weather allows, go for a picnic! It’s simple and easy and doesn’t need much prior planning. (If it’s cold, you could have one in the living room! Put a blanket down and make it really cozy!)
  • Cook dinner together. This is a good way to bond and have a bit of fun together. Find out what their favourite meal is and they can show you how they like it made!
  • Go out for lunch. You don’t need to go out for a big expensive dinner (which you’ll have to book weeks in advance!). Just go out for lunch together instead as there will be much less pressure.
  • Go for a walk. If you’re lucky enough to live either near the sea, the countryside, or even a nice park, go for a romantic walk together.

If you’ve yet to meet someone, give Chat2Date a go and chat to singles in your area on your phone!

New Year Fresh Start!

Are you looking for love in 2019? Do you want to meet new people this year?
Follow our new year’s dating resolutions and give yourself the best chance of finding someone special!

Say yes!
The easiest thing to change is to try and say yes to more things. If you’re not sure if someone is your type, go on a date anyway, you might be surprised!
Try some new activities on dates that you maybe wouldn’t have tried before.

Freshen up your profile.
January is a busy time for dating and new people signing up so make sure you stand out from the crowd! Add some new photos, write about some new things you’ve done – make your profile interesting to read.

Initiate conversations.
If you don’t usually message first, make it a new year’s resolution that you will! If you already do, then make sure your messages are interesting. Ask a question about something to show you’ve read their profile – it’ll make your message stand out from all the generic “Hey!” messages.

Stick to your plans.
If you’ve arranged to meet someone, don’t cancel because you ‘don’t feel like it. Stick to it because they might be The One! Even if they aren’t you might have a lovely time anyway.
Dating is difficult enough without being let down at the last minute.

Don’t ghost anyone.
No one deserves to be ghosted. If you’re not interested, tell them. You don’t need to be horrible about it, but there’s no need to not reply to people, or to just stop replying altogether. A simple message explaining that there was no connection, or that you’ve met someone else is polite and brings it to an end for you and for the other person.

Get chatting to singles on Chat2Date today and put your new years’ resolutions into practice!
