Strict physical distancing rules are putting a kibosh on dating, with some Queensland singles hunting to find a “lockdown buddy” as restrictions ramp up. No more than two people are allowed inside one house , meaning visiting a boyfriend or girlfriend who lives in a sharehouse is prohibited from Monday. Queenslanders have been warned about moving beyond dating apps to physical hook-ups during the pandemic. Credit: Jim Malo. Meg, who did not wish to give her last name, moved to the Gold Coast a few weeks ago and has not had the chance to make new friends. Fearing she would be confined to her house for the next six months, she went in search of someone to cosy up to during the pandemic. Meg said she found a man who had also been looking for a “lockdown buddy” and they planned to move in together in the next couple of days. I had one night out on the Gold Coast before the restrictions started getting serious, but now I can’t really meet anyone. Brisbane resident Georgia, who did not wish to give her last name, said she was still using dating apps Bumble and Hinge.
For single Australians looking for love, social distancing and self-isolating rules have drastically altered the dating scene. Instead of getting drinks at a bar, going for a walk in the park or meeting up for coffee, they’ve had to keep it to sending flirty texts and arranging virtual dates. With the exception of a recent six-month relationship, Carissa has been single and “on the apps” for the past seven years. When the coronavirus restrictions were announced, she had a moment of panic.

A great turnout. There was a bit of coming and going but I think there were people there overall. Too many to get a chance to talk to everyone! Some photos were taken so hopefully they will be uploaded shortly. Thanks for coming every one and I look forward to meeting you all again! Kerry talk , 22 November UTC. A few of us at today’s meetup had a brief chat about potential times and locations. We tentatively seemed to be all happy with a date in late November or early December. We also talked a bit about a possible location.
I’m not particularly fussed on the date so long as it’s after mid-November, but if a meet before that suits everyone fine then please don’t hold off purely on my account. Lankiveil speak to me , 22 August UTC. I’m certainly interested. Robert Forster is playing in town the same night, which adds to the appeal. But may I ask, do non-wikipedian partners normally come to these events?
