With the coronavirus taking the world by storm and with no end in sight, should you date in Vietnam during this pandemic?
Most governments around the world have begun issuing lockdown procedures and warning people not to go outside unless it’s absolutely necessary.
Companies and businesses are also closing up shop both due to economic downturns caused by the virus and for the safety of their employees.
Residents have been told by government officials to stay home for fear of catching the virus and spreading it to others.
What this means is that you have a lot of people that are either out of work or out of school and bored out of their minds at home, including lots of single Vietnamese women.
But should you even consider dating right now when there are other much more pressing matters at hand such as making sure that you don’t run out of toilet paper to wipe your butt with or that your well stocked up on disinfectant wipes to kill off all of the germs residing on toilet seats so that you can complete a toilet seat licking coronavirus challenge on TikTok?
In this article, we’ll look at several reasons why you shouldn’t be trying to date in Vietnam right now during these perilous times with COVID-19 running amok.
Risk of Infection
Forget about what your idiotic neighbor says about Covid-19 being a hoax, the threat is real.
At the time of writing this article, there are well over 800,000 cases of infections around the world, along with 40,000 deaths from the virus, and the rate of infections is increasing at an exponential rate.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO):
The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.WHO
Despite all those rumors circulating on the net about how the Virus has a harder time surviving in hotter climates, The WHO says otherwise and the virus can indeed be transmitted in hot and humid climates such as in Vietnam.
But in case you’re still skeptical about how infectious this virus is, just know that the virus went from being pretty much isolated in one country just a few months back to quickly spreading to nearly every country in the world!
And pretty much anyone is at risk of catching the virus including babies.
Now while the number of cases of those infected with the coronavirus here in Vietnam is substantially smaller compared to countries like the USA, (a little over 200 at the time of writing this article), you are still putting yourself at significant risk of not only catching it from someone but also infecting others if you do decide to go to a mass gathering area such as a bar or club.
This is exactly what happened a few weeks back when some genius decided to visit the Budha bar in Ho Chi Minh City after traveling abroad and then infecting a whole slew of new victims.
Mandatory 14-Day Quarantine Upon Arrival
The government announced back in the middle of March that any travelers coming into Vietnam would be required to go into a 14-day quarantine at a quarantine camp set up by the government of Vietnam.
Basic necessities are provided for anyone that is required to be quarantined here such as bedding, food, etc.
This sounds alright, I bet.
Free accommodations and food for 2 weeks.
Especially for those penny-pinching cheapskate backpackers.
However, the biggest issue while residing here is that you will be quarantined and sharing living quarters with other people who may very well be infected with COVID-19 and thus infecting you in the process of being quarantined with them.
Even if you didn’t have the virus when you came to Vietnam, in the unfortunate event that you’re housed in the same room as someone that does have it, your ass is toast.

Flights to Vietnam Have Been Banned
Now if you had plans of flying here in Vietnam during the middle of a pandemic, which is probably not the brightest idea right now, you can pretty much kiss that plan goodbye as the government has just recently announced that they are banning all foreigners from traveling to Vietnam.
You can’t even enter the country now because your ass would be deported as soon as you arrived here.
If you want to flush money down the toilet then be my guess, because that’s exactly what’s going to happen if you decide to buy a plane ticket to come here right now.
Social distancing is basically the act of keeping a safe distance away from other people so as to prevent the spreading of an infection such as the COVID-19 virus.
The government has been preaching for all residents and visitors here in Vietnam to practice social distancing when out and about.
What this means is that most people that you encounter here, including cute females will most likely want to keep a safe distance away from you.
If you were planning on running day game and spam approaching girls using some lame-ass canned opener like telling every girl you met how cute she is, you can forget about it.
Not that those retarded “PUA” techniques even work here anyhow 🤣.
Most females are not going to be in the mood to be entertained by your monkey antics during the middle of a pandemic where the risk of her catching the coronavirus is real high.
Furthermore, I suspect these rules will only get stricter in the near future and you could very well end up with fines for violating these rules.
Bars and Clubs Closed
Bars and clubs and any other mass gathering area is a huge hotbed for spreading the virus and thus the government has ordered all of these establishments to close their doors for the time being.
So even if you wanted to go out to meet girls at a bar or club, this ain’t going to be happening anytime soon as nearly all of them have been ordered to be closed.
Now, you may find one or two that still remain open despite government officials ordering them to close up, but I’m sure every other horny guy out there is headed to that exact same location to hit on any females within sight.
Not only are you putting yourself at a huge risk of catching the virus, but you’re also going to have to bring your A-game to compete against every other guy out there.
I’d say the odds are stacked against you.
The nightlife is pretty much dead these days in Vietnam.
Streets like Bui Vien which used to be the epicenter of debauchery activities is now a shadow of its former self and all of those bottom-feeding pickpockets have now been forced to seek out an honest living for the time being.
Streets Are Practically Empty
If you just go take a stroll outside, the streets will resemble a scene out of the movie “I am Legend”.
The once busy and bustling streets of Vietnam, especially the walking streets like Nguyen Hue or Bui Vien have now become devoid of any life, except crickets and mosquitos.
The nightlife has already taken a pounding but now the streets barely have any people walking around except to buy food or groceries.
This is another kick to the nuts if you intended on running day game here as your prospects have now all vanished.
This makes day game not practical anymore.
Girls Not Willing to Meet Up
All of the previous reasons were bad enough, but nothing takes the cake if the girls themselves are not willing to meet up with you for fear of contracting the coronavirus.
Since the coronavirus hit, most people have turned to online dating as a safe avenue for meeting people.
Dating apps have seen huge surges in user activities since the virus hit all around the world.
However, the only problem is that no one is willing to meet up.
Instead, you can expect to engage in prolonged virtual courtships.
Rather than going out on real dates, you’ve now been reduced to going out on “virtual dates”, a glorified term for video chatting with someone.
This presents numerous problems for guys:
- More men using online dating = more competition. She now can line up virtual dates like a conveyor belt.
- You’re also evaluated a lot more harshly as well since she has way more guys at her disposal. Whereas you can make up for a significant portion of your flaws or any minor mistakes in person due to being there physically with her and also being able to escalate things in a romantic and sexual manner, these things are much more difficult to pull off online without appearing creepy.
- A women’s feelings for a guy have an expiration date and if you don’t take her as your lover, eventually the chemistry will just fizzle out and then you end up getting friend-zoned and believe me, you don’t want to end up there.
- Know that courtship is a competition and there will always be other guys trying to beat you to the punch. If you fail to get romantically involved with her, it’s only a matter of time before someone else does. Wasting time becoming texting buddies do you no favors. You need to get her out ASAP!
In this article, we covered several reasons why dating in Vietnam during the coronavirus may not be the best idea during these times.
- The high risk of infection
- Mandatory 14-day quarantine for new arrivals
- Flights to Vietnam for foreigners being banned
- Social distancing
- Bars and clubs closed
- Streets are empty
- Girls unwilling to meet up during COVID-19
While trying to date during these dark times is not completely out of the picture, your focus would be better off being put to use elsewhere at the moment.
Perhaps you have some unfinished projects that need to be completed.
Maybe you haven’t had time to clean your house.
Or maybe you gained some weight and have been neglecting your health and body for a little while.
Take some time off to focus on these other areas of your life and before you know it, your dating life will be back to normal again.
But in case you can’t wait for this whole pandemic to end and you absolutely must be dating right now, tune in to my next article, where I’ll go over some ways that you can actually meet Vietnamese women here in Vietnam during the coronavirus pandemic.
Until then, keep safe!
