Romance and dating during the coronavirus pandemic are possible, they just require some creativity. New York photographer Jeremy Cohen, who saw a girl dancing on the roof, sent her his phone number with a drone, and had a long-distance rooftop dinner date with her, has a wholesome update for us. He met up with Tori and went on a real date with her!
But before your alarm bells go off and you start fainting from the possible lack of social distancing, relax—Jeremy had it under control. He showed up in a plastic bubble and even brought flowers and hand sanitizer for Tori as gifts. Though he couldn’t give them to her because, well, he’s a responsible citizen rolling around in a plastic bubble.
Jeremy even got stopped by the police, but don’t worry, he didn’t get into any trouble. They recognized him from the news. Scroll down to see how Jeremy and Tori’s latest date went and share your thoughts in the comments, Pandas. You can read our earlier post about Jeremy and Tori right here.

We were interested to know if Jeremy already had an inflatable plastic bubble or if he bought it for the occasion. “I was thinking about buying one because I thought it could be a way to make people smile walking around the city while also being safe, but I couldn’t find any online. Then my artist friend, Pablo Rochat, posted a link to one in his story (I think as a joke). I couldn’t believe he found an actual link to buy one, so I immediately purchased it. Then I met Tori and I think it was right before our first date, it arrived in the mail and I realized it would make for a perfect second date.”
Jeremy said that the “bubble date” with Tori was a lot of fun. “We didn’t have much conversation since it was difficult to hear each other since I was in a bubble, but we laughed the whole time we walked in the neighborhood together.”
“Everyone outside had to do a double-take at us—it would be a combination of bewildering and jovial looks. It gave people something to laugh and smile at. As we walked down the streets, people were even watching and taking videos out of their windows. Hopefully, some people copy me! I’d be flattered—it’s safe, fun, and it gives people a reason to smile which is what we could use a little more of now,” he told Bored Panda.
