Love in lockdown


WITH half the country in lockdown, Australian­s feeling hopeless in their search for love have been given fresh hope, with a dating coach sharing his top tips.

Dating apps, such as Tinder, Bumble and Hinge, have recorded spikes in the number of users thanks to government­imposed social distancing measures, with Tinder recording 42 per cent more matches in the last year.

But single Australian­s who have struck out on apps have been encouraged to reconnect with former crushes.

“Lockdowns can be a perfect time to reach out,” according to dating coach Andrew Gung.
