Like anything else, living alone has its perks and pitfalls, but being by yourself in a time of social isolation can present an array of challenges and emotions. We asked our readers to share their stories of what living alone looks and feels like now. Some wrote about days of solo bliss (filled with knitting, sketching and solitaire), while others wondered when they would touch someone again. One reader likened this experience to his time in jail.
For some, weddings, birthdays and baby showers may be canceled, but love isn’t. While the coronavirus has upended almost all major celebrations, some couples pushed forward with their plans to take their relationships to the next level. These creative, surprise quarantine proposals remind us that beautiful moments are still happening behind closed doors.
