A year into Covid-19 with vaccination rollout in full affect, a lot of people are seeing light at the end of the tunnel. The idea of some sense of normalcy at arms reach is hopeful though dating trends are seeing a more cautious approach to dating.  OkCupid for example has added a question in it’s prompts asking “will you get the Covid-19 vaccine?” People who are answering yes are seeing 20% more likes and 12% more matches.

Denver ABC7 asked Agape Match’s CEO, Maria Avgitidis on whether this trend in the dating world will continue for the foreseeable future:

Being vaccinated might be the new 6’ tall, so you know, would a 5’4” women date a man who’s 5’8” or 5’9,” of course she would, I want to hope she would. Would she date someone who’s not vaccinated? Well right now, she would, but six months down the line, or a year down the line, why is he not vaccinated yet? Was it his choice not to be vaccinated?” Avgitidis says she could see dating apps adding emojis in the future to highlight you’ve been vaccinated, like they have for things now like, “do you want to have kids?”
