7 Topics To Discuss To Nurture & Develop A New Relationship While Isolated From Each Other
Love

Did you just meet someone before this crisis? Or have you met someone online during this crisis?

Being in a COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic world when isolation and social distance has become the new norm, dating and finding love is different.

It may seem hard to not be able to see the other person as much as you could before.

But the good news is that even in the midst of a crisis, you can use quarantine time to build a stronger relationship — if you heed this dating advice.

For new relationships, the coronavirus crisis can actually be a blessing — it allows couples to put what's important at the forefront.

Since you can't see each other for the time being, that takes some pressure off. You can really use this time to get to know each other on a much deeper level.

The more you are connected, emotionally and mentally, the better things will be when you can see each other, physically.

So, really take the time to get to know them and find out what makes them tick.

To take it a step further, here are 7 topics to discuss that can help you nurture and develop a new relationship while isolated during the coronavirus crisis.

1. Talk about what is most important for you in a relationship.

Do you need words of affirmation? Physical touch? Consistency? Spontaneity?

Knowing each other's love language will help strengthen a budding relationship.

3. Talk about ways you can calmly discuss things during an argument.

The longer you date and stay together, relationship problems are guaranteed to happen in the future.

But if you have a plan in place ahead of time, it will make your arguments go much smoother.

4. Make sure you are on the same page with your future plans.

Do you want kids? Is marriage something you want?

Being clear about those things ahead of time will save a lot of issues in the future.

5. Talk about each other's ideal future vacations and dreams.

You get the benefit of only a mental connection for a while, so use it to your benefit. You will get to know the other person on a better level — so much faster than if you could see them in person.

Don't hold anything back.

Get it all out of the way now so when you do see each other in person, you will have an amazingly strong connection already that you can build on.

6. Talk about your triggers and what really upsets you and gets under your skin.

These include past experiences of yours that have shaped you.

The more you understand each other and where the other is coming from, the better it will be for you and your relationship.

7. Talk about what you think your best qualities are and what qualities you think you need to work on.

Be clear with what you really want and need from someone in a relationship. Do not expect them to read your mind or both of you will end up frustrated and disappointed.

If you are clear with your needs, you are much more likely to actually get what you need.

So many people wait for the other person to magically read their minds and give them what they want. Those people end up bitter and disappointed in the long run, and I don't want that for anyone!

You obviously don't want to make it all serious all the time, so have some fun as well. But, if you can build that better communication and foundation it will only help your relationship.

So, overall, focus on open communication and starting things off right. Really use the resources you do have available like video chat and all ways of communication to the fullest.

Communication is the key to new relationships to survive, not only during this crisis period.

For some relationships, too much time together at first without building a solid foundation first can sour things, so this you can use this break to your advantage!

Build a solid foundation now for a more solid future together. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

So, don't let quarantine and isolation stop you from searching for love. Instead, get excited to create an even more connected relationship!

And far in the future, you will always have an interesting story about when you first met, so there's that! Use this crisis to your benefit and create a happy love life for yourself!
