Hey guys,
So I wanted to just share my situation and hear another opinion to see if I'm the only one thinking like this. We all know the COVID 19 hysterics has taken over the world now-  the parliament in my country closed almost everything, declared it's exceptional situation, makes new laws regarding the virus everyday, some cities are under karantine etc, you see it's a serious thing. I'm home office for 2 weeks and decided that because of the situation I'm not going out unless I have to shop for food 2 times- It sucks a lot but I prefer to be safe than sorry , besides I live with my family even though I'm 24 and I do it also to protect them( besides my dad has MS so catching a virus would be extra hard for him)
Me and my bf have been dating for 3 months now and we haven't seen each other since last Friday- when this situation was declared as force majore by the governors. He was sick during the weekend and even though I'm sure it's nothin more than a regular cold I'm more worried than usual, I also explained to him last Friday that our meetings are going to be limited. Yesterday he asked me to come over to his place and said- ok, i'm not sick anymore, so it's ok to come( he lives with roommates so i don't know what these people are exposed to etc). when i responded that i don't think it's wise to do it and i wanna keep it safe he acted like not seeing each other for 2 weeks is a big deal in this situation, as if I don't go out because it's my wish to do so.  :( and even said that for him, taking a taxi to his place is safer than let's say, going grocery shopping.. I feel like he doesn't understand my motives and what bothers me the most is that he's willing to risk my health for the sake of meeting for 1 night, and besides he's 29 years old and I think at this age you should be more responsible than this. He keeps saying he doesn't want to push me but I feel like he does and when I try to explain again my motives he says- I' m smart enough to know the reasons but still we haven't met in 2 weeks....and hasn't texted me at all today!
What are your opinions on this, I'm honestly interested to hear another point of view because the topic is unfortunately relevant and not dissapearing anytime soon :)

Hello waiting_game,

From my point of you COVID 19 is a blessing for both of you in disguise.
By the end of COVID 19 situation, with some efforts and sacrifices, you can reach deeper levels of intimacy with your bf that would otherwise have taken years.

At the time of writing this reply, according to WHO:
-> To date, there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the new coronavirus.
-> People of all ages can be infected by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.
-> Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

In light of above statements from WHO, the best preventive way seems to be to avoid your hands from picking up viruses. This includes even avoiding travel in a taxi that could contain viruses left by its previous passenger or the driver. In addition, it's better for you to stick with home delivery of grocery if you can. Also please disinfect your hands and the goods received after each delivery.

By following such high safety standards, I think you will be better equipped to help your bf understand your motive.
Moreover, you can consider helping him take exceptional precautions too to keep him safe.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

I find the above quote very inspiring. I hope it helps you too.  :)

Best Regards

I think the covid19 situation is affecting and testing everyone's relationships.
But I think you have to make a choice. If you think you want to see him during the 'lockdown' I guess the best way for you guys is to discuss wether you want to self isolate together. Don't risk traveling in such situations. I guess he should understand the criticality of this virus. Stay safe!
