Over half of single people looking to date during the pandemic prefer to do it locally.
Bumble has posted the results of a survey it has run with the OnePoll company on dating.
So 52% of singles who are on the look out for dates during this pandemic would prefer that it's close to home.
However 45% say they'd be hesitant to go out if it's too far away.
So. What's the etiquette with dating now. Explain please.
