A tidy bed on a Zoom date seems a bit forward

Summer dating in London can be so much fun (PA)

I feel lucky I am not still on the dating scene. I imagine that’s a common feeling.

Many people are probably happy I am not on the dating scene - my other half hopefully, and also the rest of the people on the dating scene.

It’s even harder to find someone during a pandemic, when it’s against the rules to be near people. Some have tried Zoom dating.

A new survey has found that house plants and a neatly made bed are the best things to have in the background of a Zoom date. I can understand the pot plants but the bed seems a little forward. If you have a prepared bed in-shot during a date it either looks like you’re trying to drop hints or you live in a really small studio flat.
