I wanted to take a moment and touch base with you all regarding your own safety amid the current situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus.)
First and foremost, we would like to extend our well wishes to you and your loved ones. Secondly, we would like to remind you to take precautionary measures described by the CDC in your daily interactions.
For the sake of demonstrating continued interest to your Match, we remind you to be transparent regarding your concerns about the virus spreading in relation to why you may consider postponing meetings in person. You can always keep the conversation going via phone, text, video chat and email.
Just because you are meeting in a virtual setting doesn’t mean you have to make it non-personable. You can still show your interests by getting dressed and bringing your best. Find a quiet corner of your home to sit in, have a cup of Chai and be ready to chat! Give your match the same value as you would in person- eliminate distractions (use of phone, surfing the web while on video chat, etc.).
As always, your Matchmaker and the Beyond Chai team are available to assist you. Feel free to reach out should you have questions. The team has brainstormed ideas and tips on how to stay connected virtually with your match that will allow you to keep the vibe going, please stay tuned as we share those ideas with you.
