Tayside was one of 9 Scottish regions until the early 1990’s when it was renamed River Tay. With a population just under 500,000 the area is made up of Dundee, Agnus, Perth and Kinross. Dating hasn’t exactly been easy for this population. Like the rest of the UK they have had to adhere to government guidelines with fines in place for those who stray.
With more than 5 universities in this locale, a number of students were left disappointed. Learning moved online, clubs were closed, and social events cancelled. However, the stay at home rule has now been dropped in Scotland. It has been replaced by ‘stay local’, remain within the borough or local authority. You can go to the park without pretending to be working out. You can make non essential journey’s, again. Up to 4 adults from 2 households can meet up to exercise.

Preparing to ease out? (Hot Tub sales say yes)
The terrain of Tayside can vary from city, to country to coastal living. Already, the area has seen a rise in the purchases of hot tubs which seems as though the population is preparing to ease away from the public for more private fun this summer. Hot tub sales were up 200% last year, and one operator managed to sell 60 in one week. Today, on the 5th of April barbers and salons across Scotland will open, on the 26th of April beauty services will reopen and, from May 17ths gym will open.
If we rewind time to 2017, Tayside was highlighted as one of the best places to live as a student as some houses came with a hot tub, installed by a student living at the house. But, other properties which have hot hubs in Scotland 2021 are leased out. It seems property owners may be attempting to make the house more entertaining for students in light of lockdowns making public fun difficult. Do remember, as of yet in Scotland you shouldn’t be venturing into someone’s house. Also, all this progress has the potential to fall in on itself, Scotland had one of its WORST peaks around the new years period.

Dating in Tayside? Some tips
- Stay Safe. Just because someone has a hot tub does not mean you should go round. It could still be safer to meet with someone at a park, or if you’re in a coastal town why not a stroll along the beach.
- Always let someone know where you are. This could be a close friend or family member but once again your safety is paramount and there are ways to keep safe.
- No one to alert? Write a note and leave it under your pillow. This will say where you are going and whom you will be meeting. If you get home safely (I do hope so) you can discard of the note yourself.
- Avoid those who do not want to meet in public, could be something sinister going on.
- Put up recent pictures, probably best to stay clear of images taken 3 years ago.
