Although maintaining 6 feet of distance on a first date might not sound like the most romantic scenario, it's possible to adhere to social distancing recommendations while still having a great date. The ideal texts to send after a socially-distanced first date don't have to be complicated. As with any other positive follow-up message you'd send after a successful first date, the goal should be to communicate that you had a good time, and would be open to meeting up again. Here are some examples of texts that will keep the vibes fun and light, while also setting the stage for another date.
1. "Hi [their name], that was a lot of fun! Let's do it again soon."

Dating during the coronavirus pandemic can be tough, but it's still possible to make meaningful connections. Embracing the restrictions on physical contact and learning to enjoy yourself despite the challenges presented by social distancing can also reveal a lot about compatibility. If you can have fun doing simple things like walking through the park or sitting on the beach, then that's definitely a sign that you and your date are off to a good start.
