Time to be Together
Many of us felt lonely when we suddenly found ourselves in a world dictated by new rules — refraining from hugging, kissing, and even shaking hands.
I’ve been hearing news of couples breaking up all the time since the start of the pandemic. Among my friends and acquaintances, many have ended relationships with their partners. Distance, or, conversely, forced closeness makes relationships during a pandemic a real test that not everyone is able to pass.
In the midst of this madness, I met Polina on the web, writing a couple of silly compliments to her work. For a while, we had to communicate only online, and when the situation around calmed down a bit, we met and decided that we needed to stay together.
