It is cold outside and not all of us enjoy the great outdoors. Walk in the mall instead. I used to find it weird that people went to the mall to walk but you got to make most of the situation we have at hand. Pick up some coffee and walk around. You might have to wear a mask the whole time as you are in a mall but you can check out some cool stores or sit on a bench and get to know each other.

You can go to a Mall near you or go for adventure and meet at a mall you both haven’t been to before. Yorkdale, Fairview, Markville, Eaton, Scarborough Town Centre all make for great mall dates (never thought I would say that).

Video Call Dates

Not comfortable meeting someone new at this time that is perfectly okay. Do what you are comfortable with and feel safe. You can set your boundaries. Only go on a date if you are comfortable. You can have a video call if you don’t want to meet someone in person yet. 

We have a list of quarantine date ideas that you will find useful as well.
