The coronavirus has forced people to stay home. Entire nations are in quarantine, and it looks like the situation won’t change in the near future. Dating is impossible these days. But, Jeremy Cohen is here to teach you a lesson of dating.
Cohen noticed a cute girl dancing on the rooftop of the building next to his Brooklyn home. The cutie noticed him and Cohen couldn’t do anything but wave at her. She waved back. Of course.
The young man decided to use his drone to reach out for the girl. Cohen got really creative. He hadn’t been on a date for a year, and the lockdown woke up his creativity.
“I actually haven’t been on a date in at least a year,” he said. “I think I was just craving some social interaction, and being confined by the walls of my apartment inspired some creativity for me.”
Cohen was “stuck” in his apartment. All by himself. This interaction brought him joy.
“I’m all cooped up in my apartment alone, so it’s definitely different than my normal life of being out and about all the time (there’s so much to do in NYC!) For now, I’m taking it day by day.”
He spotted the girl dancing on top of the building
“I looked out my window and saw this girl dancing, perhaps to a TikTok song?
I needed to say ‘Hi’ to her. So I waved to her on my balcony and she waved back.”
Cohen took a piece of paper and started writing. He didn’t forget to write down his number.
“I grabbed my tape, pen, drone, and paper. Then I wrote down my digits and sealed them on my drone. Flirting is normally daunting for me, but since I’ve been quarantined in my apartment for a week now, I was screaming for social interaction.”
The drone flew away
Tori was more than surprised. And excited.
“2020 has been off to a terrible start, but I still needed to shoot my shot. She picked up my drone and I guess it worked because I got a text from her an hour later.”
She texted back!
Cohen asked her out
“I still can’t believe this happened the other day. Now it’s time for part two. I asked her out for dinner, but she said ‘How?’”
The date was organized
“I sneakily coordinated with her roommate earlier to set it up.”
Social distancing matters!
“5 PM hits. It was time for our date. Wait, where is she? Just kidding. We follow the rules. I waved down at the balcony, she waved back.”
Cohen took some cool pics of the girl. He is a photographer.
It’s time for FaceTime!
“I told her she looked beautiful. So we got on FaceTime and ate our matching organic, microwaved single dinners together.”
Cohen shares his experience with his friends
“The date was going so well and depending on how long this quarantine lasts, I might be in a long-distance relationship with someone who lives across the street from me. I excused myself to the bathroom. Of course, I didn’t have to go, I just wanted to tell my group chat how well this was going.”
We asked Jeremy how’s it going with Tory now, he said: “So far so good, we had our first date two days ago which went super well. Going on our second date soon. It’s a little strange with all the pressure of everyone watching compared to a normal date, but I think I can handle it!”
The video went viral on in an hour.

This was a positive experience for Cohen. He said, “It makes me feel good to know people are rooting for me, but more importantly, it gives something for people to believe in during these strange and dark times. If this story brings joy to people, then It brings joy to me.”
