Who Said You Can’t Date While in Quarantine?

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, Bumble has seen a 21% increase in its voice chat and video call features…also, people are staying on the line longer than usual. All that paired with the success of “Love is Blind,” and I’m sure everyone is okay with prolonging the “let’s get to know each other” phase before the actual face-to-face.

Interestingly enough, this spike is even more pronounced in areas heavily impacted by the virus, such as San francisco, New York and Seattle.
