Online dating

Love, in a strange way, is like water.

Water finds its way.

It moves over and around obstacles.

It can travel long distances.

It refreshes; it quenches.

It brings joy but it can also bring sorrow.

Much like love.

This is the first time, in living memory, that Valentine's Day will be celebrated under the shadow of a pandemic.

If there is one thing COVID-19 restrictions, like social distancing and wearing a mask, have not be able to fetter, it is the progress of love.

Online dating has flourished.
