The pandemic is not over but we are learning how to live with it, putting it in the background not the foreground, as part of the new normal. Life without physicality and intimacy is inhumane. Perhaps the pandemic can offer a unique opportunity to enhance a connection and elevate it to a more meaningful level.
An exclusive partner is always best and that is because the lower your number of close contacts, the lower your risk of exposure to a communicable disease. So in this novel time of challenge, recognize it as an opportunity to slow down and let the romance flourish for the long term.
