It’s now safe for fully vaccinated people to sit indoors.

Breaking out of this to go outside on dates can be overwhelming right now. Plus, many people have lost loved ones due to the pandemic and is something that will effect them for years to come. So make sure you bear this is mind when picking up post-pandemic dating.
