dating, COVID-19, social gatherings


The pandemic has made it increasingly difficult to attend social gatherings that were once abundant, so there is a clear need to understand how dating is changing during this time. This paper will review the effects that Covid-19 has had on the tendency for individuals to prefer online dating versus traditional dating. We will use a sample size of 100 individuals between the ages of 18 and 30 and ask them to fill out a questionnaire asking them questions related to our topic. Participants will complete the 10-question questionnaire using a four-point Likert scale (1) Strongly agree, (2) Agree, (3) Disagree, (4) Strongly Disagree in their own time using their own devices. Upon completion participants will answer demographic questions regarding gender, race and age. Understanding how men and women chose to find meaningful relationships (traditional vs online dating) during the pandemic can help us better understand if gender differences affect dating styles trends at this time.
