The way we met was actually a happy accident. I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there’s a year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart. So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously. Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. I gave him my phone number and he texted me, “Hi, Hannah, it’s Matt.
And that was it. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later. We went on a hike, and we put wine in water bottles and had a little picnic at the end of the hike. Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing. I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.

Just a couple of months ago, at the beginning of this year, people were still not treating the new Coronavirus seriously. At the early stages of its existence, the virus seemed so distant and easy to overcome that very few of us could even imagine the prospect of the whole world going into the lockdown. Today, however, it has become our new reality.
Is your love life on a pause due to COVID lockdown? Without getting out there to embrace your flirtatious self, this is what you can do.
Recently, I was at the airport on my way to a conference. A woman in her mid-twenties took her seat beside me on the plane. She smiled in passing and seemed pleasant enough. As the plane departed, the woman gripped her seat, and I noticed her engagement ring. Her face lit up, and she replied that she was actually on her way to her wedding destination as we spoke.
Curious as I am, I asked her how she and her husband-to-be had met. For the remainder of the plane ride we kept up polite conversation. Inspired, I told her about my work with LoveWrite. When the plane landed and we parted ways, our encounter left me with some lingering thoughts. Years ago, I came to the conclusion that many couples who met online feel embarrassed by their online love story.
