Dating has always been a complicated endeavor but the Covid-19 pandemic has made it much harder. According to the readers of BuzzFeed there are 19 "unwritten" rules of dating that we should all be following.
The number 1 item they have listed is to stop "ghosting" people. They say to be an adult and be honest. Let the person know that you do not want to be in a relationship anymore. We have gotten so comfortable with texting and emailing that the readers also say to stop using these forms of communication to end things. Many think it is cowardly or disrespectful.
They even give a couple tips on how to figure out if your relationship is heading in the right direction such as "being friends with your partner." A good relationship will go much farther if you can relax and just be yourself around your significant other. As well as "You should both be putting equal effort into the relationship." People will always make time for others and things they want in life so if they are not texting or calling to hang out with you, that should be a red flag.
