No respect for my health? No date

Women are often having to advocate for their own physical health in a society that deemphasizes our body’s importance. Before the pandemic, that meant packing our own condoms for fear that men wouldn’t have them on hand. It could also mean requiring a guy who didn’t want to use a condom to use one. And the pandemic has given us another obstacle: pushing for social distancing. But we’re doing it! OkCupid found that tens of thousands of users say they will cancel a date with a user who refuses to social distance, and four out of 10 will cancel a date with someone who says they have no plans to get the vaccine. We are putting our health first.
