For people in the dating market, the years since the COVID-19 pandemic hit have been tough.

Many of the places where people usually socialize and meet partners, like entertainment venues, bars and restaurants, or even get-togethers with friends, were unavailable or limited during the pandemic. Figuring out where and how to meet up safely with a date posed logistical challenges, with many people turning to video calls as a substitute. And while online dating and apps have been common for years, usage and engagement skyrocketed on these platforms during the pandemic with few alternatives available.

Today, nearly two-thirds of people who are single and looking for a partner report that dating has become harder since the COVID-19 pandemic began. And while the share of adults looking for a relationship has not changed significantly in that time, nearly one-third of those who have stopped dating recently cite COVID-related concerns as a reason why. At a time when loneliness and isolation were high, romantic companionship became harder to come by.
