“You don’t have to put your love life on hold, just because the country is on hold,” Berzack said.
Berzack has been seen it all during her 14 years in the love industry. Now she’s setting people up on virtual dates.
“It forces you to connect on an emotional level and you can really pay attention to how does somebody communicate what is their sense of humor seem like, what do they talk about,” Berzack said.
Berzack offers some tips if you are dating right now. She says to have good lighting for video chat and make sure you’re talking about other topics other than coronavirus.
“Date — and look like you would if you were going on a real date,” Berzack said.
