Whether you're looking for love, or have already found it, you may well find dating in the coronavirus age more complicated than it already was.
Cinemas are closed, dining out is off limits and the government has told people to stay inside their homes unless it is essential to leave, so traditional romantic outings are no longer an option.
Rachael Bowering and her boyfriend Jaden, who have been dating for about a year-and-a-half, are one Wagga couple who live apart and are figuring out how to stay connected while social distancing to protect their families.
"There's been FaceTiming and [social media] but not really sitting and eating together. So yeah, it's been kind of difficult to navigate," Ms Bowering said.
"It's very weird, not being able to, you know, hug someone. I'm someone who is a massive hugger, so it's very difficult."
There has been some confusion over whether or not people are permitted to visit their current romantic partner under COVID-19 restrictions. "Can I visit my boyfriend during coronavirus Australia?" has been a popular search on Google.
NSW Police told The Daily Advertiser on Friday that people are allowed to visit their partners.
Ms Bowering, who is an arts student at CSU, her dad and two of her siblings are all working or studying from home, while her mum goes to work as a nurse at the hospital and one of her brothers heads to his job at Woolworths.
"We've got a set up at the dining room table so we can all take turns studying there ... we're making it work," Ms Bowering said.
Ms Bowering said she and her partner had been social distancing for about a month, but in the past they loved to go on dates.
"It was quite heartbreaking when the cinema had to close because that was kind of the main activity we love to do together ... we love all the superhero movies," she said.
Now the couple have a new ritual, which is talking over FaceTime in the mornings while they eat breakfast.
"It sounds really funny when I say it out loud that it is quite nice to kind of sit there and have breakfast together. Even if it's over your screen," Ms Bowering said.
"We'll definitely have to keep coming up with some interesting ways of catching up and you know, being together without being together."
For couples who do live in the same house, social distancing may mean navigating how to work from home, together.
Hannah Smith and her fiance George, who have been together for seven years, are sharing a home office as they did for three years while at university in Wollongong.
"Mainly we just pulled all that stuff back out and we've got bookshelves behind us, so it kind of feels a bit more like you should be doing something, in my opinion," Ms Smith said.
"It's very different. I wasn't very productive at university. George was a lot more. It's just getting into a good habit of sitting down and doing stuff."
Ms Smith said she and her fiance, whom she's been dating since high school, have always enjoyed spending time at home.
"But we're pretty good at just trying to make sure we do a lot together and put effort into cooking together and making that a bit more fun," she said.
Dating apps are proving more popular than ever, as they capitalise on people whiling away the sometimes lonely hours at home.
It was only a month ago that Wagga was crowned the Australian city with the fifth-highest number of matches on Tinder.
Now the app has reported that, around the country, the number of conversations has increased by an average of 16 per cent, as users find themselves isolated while social distancing.
These conversations are about 12 per cent longer than usual, which almost evokes the romance of a long-ago era when courtship in its early stages was done largely via correspondence.
One dating app user, who did not wish to be named, told The Daily Advertiser he had been looking for love online during the coronavirus pandemic but "nothing had changed".
"People never wanted to meet up before ... they just wanted to chat," he said.
"It's the same as it always was."
If you're single, in-person mingling is probably off the cards for the foreseeable future, as people on most Tinder dates could find it challenging to stay the requisite 1.5 metres apart.
