How The Worldwide Lockdown Is Altering Our Love Lives

Share

I can’t believe today is day 60 of the UK lockdown. It has weirdly gone extremely slow, but also flown by. In the past 60 days, my life has dramatically changed, I have been furloughed from my job and for most of the day, I spend my time alone in my house waiting for my boyfriend to get home. I really did turn into a 1950s housewife overnight!

We have just bought a house, and rather than isolating in different homes with our parents we decided to move into the house so we could isolate together. Because no one has any idea how long we will be self isolating for, I think it was definitely a wise decision that we made! A lot of my friends in their early 20s are not isolating with their partners, and have chose to live separate during this time in our lives and have been constantly complaining about how much they miss having sex!

In my head I like to wonder about what it would be like if my partner wasn’t at work all day, and how it would affect our sex life constantly being around each other. Would it be irresistible to keep our hands off each other, or would it affect our sex life negatively in the sense that we would get sick of each other and not want to have sex at all?

As someone with a high sex drive, it’s nice that we don’t have to wait to see each other, I mean imagine having to wait weeks, months, to see and be intimate with your partner?

One of my single girlfriends uses dating sites, such as belfastsexsite.co.uk and Jersey sex site, and the lockdown has massively affected her sex life. To put it in black and white, she enjoys meeting up with men for casual flings, which can mean her travelling across the country to meet new people. With restrictions on travel and meeting people from different households in place, you can imagine she is struggling with loneliness!

My sister is actually in a long distance relationship, with her in Bolton and him in Peterborough, so on the other end of the spectrum to ours, their sex life has plummeted completely (I mean I do have to deal with the complaining on the phone about it!). She has actually even started having a sexual relationship with her student flatmate – talk about a scandal! She is the kind of person that depends on having someone to be there with her, so this lockdown is definitely affecting her in more ways than one.

Now that you have read my personal experience of how lockdown is affecting me, I want to know how you are dealing with it. Are you single and lockdown is affecting your love life and making you feel lonely? Is it affecting your long distance relationship because you can’t see your partner? Has it not affected you and your life hasn’t changed at all? Everyone is having a difference experience, but we are all in the same boat.
