I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to be done with isolation. It’s important to still obey social distancing mandates, but I’m eager to work with my clients again. One of the worst parts of 2020 was having to be away from those of you that I see regularly. It has been extra hard to not spend time with those of you that I’ve not yet met. Now that I’m fully vaccinated, I’m ready to mingle, and I hope you are too. So, let’s talk about why reconnection and touch are so essential and how I can help you ease back into civilization.
The Need for Reconnection and Touch
Even people who don’t have social anxiety might be feeling hesitant to come out of isolation and rejoin the world. After a year with low contact, initiating interaction with our loved ones just feels a little different. We want to catch up with everyone, but for the most part, people haven’t been up to very much over the past year. If you’ve experienced loss, everyday chit-chat questions like “how’s your mom?” might be depressing. So, to those of you who are feeling strange or unsure of how to re-engage, you’re not alone by any stretch of the imagination.
It will be a bumpy ride, going from isolation back to connection. But it doesn’t have to be a ride you take alone. If you’ve been tuning into my YouTube channel, Coffee With Alice, for a while, then you know that I’ve been saying that there’s a loneliness epidemic going on since long before the pandemic. Touch starvation was a difficult reality before the coronavirus, and the situation has deteriorated. I’ve been offering a virtual girlfriend experience to bridge the gap, but even though I provide connection, it won’t take the place of human touch. It’s time to get together in person.
The New Normal
We’ve all heard the term “the new normal” tossed around more than we would like during the pandemic. As the pandemic dwindles, the new normal may include things like grieving. It may also include a continued sense of loss for a year of connection and memories with our loved ones. But it shouldn’t contain things like extended isolation. Being alone isn’t something you should get used to, even if you’ve successfully done it for a whole year.
Though social distancing is a sacrifice we all made for the greater good, long-term separation is not healthy. Long-term separation is not just bad for your mental health, it’s terrible for your physical health, too. Psychologists estimate that the absence of social connection is as bad for your health as fifteen cigarettes per day or being an alcoholic. Social isolation is even a predictor of mortality, meaning it’s linked to death. It’s something we’re all going to have to prioritize, and it’s crucial that we reach out to the people that we love and end this period of isolation.
The Importance of Vaccination
As I mentioned before, I’m very fortunate to be fully vaccinated. I did it because I want to keep myself and others safe. My hope is that you’re planning on doing the same so that we have the best chance of reaching herd immunity as soon as possible. New safety protocols may be in place at the brothels to help keep everyone safe until the pandemic is just a bad memory. I’m optimistic that these processes will help you feel more comfortable and safer with me. And, as always, I’m super committed to keeping everyone safe, healthy, and secure.
If no one has reached out to you yet, that’s okay. It’s still early, and the pandemic hasn’t been beaten yet. Consider reaching out to those you’d like to get together with once this is over. Or, if that’s not your thing, consider this article as me reaching out to you. Connecting with people—especially people who feel isolated—is my passion. I’d love to help you get started dating again, get you over the hump of a sexless spell, or provide whatever level of connection you’re interested in. The sooner you book an appointment with me, the sooner we can start exchanging texts and getting to know each other. Flirting beforehand is one of my favorite parts of connecting with clients, and it will help you get comfortable with me before we meet in person.
The Brothels Are Coming Back
In case you haven’t heard, I’m at a new brothel now! I’ve said goodbye to my old digs and will be joining The Chicken Ranch, which opens on May 1. Yes, that’s just a few weeks away. After surviving the pandemic, it’s definitely time to treat yourself. And there’s no better way to treat yourself than by doing something good for both your body and mind, by ending your social isolation.
