You know how it is on Tinder, you gotta have that clever opening line if you’re gonna get that swipe right. Well here’s the latest – disclosing the status of their COVID-19 antibody tests in their dating app profiles.
That’s right, proof that you don’t have the virus to make yourself more datable. It’s like a ‘badge of honor’ to show that you’re not infected.
Obviously for people in the dating pool that’s a topic that’s worth talking about. Some profiles have even advertised they are willing to send photographic proof of test results.
Unfortunately, the antibody tests are not foolproof. There is a high degree of false positives.
But if they’re hot – are you willing to take a chance?
MIAMI GARDENS, FLORIDA – MAY 06: Anthony Reyes, City of Miami police officer, shows the results of his coronavirus antibodies test done at the Hard Rock Stadium testing site on May 06, 2020 in Miami Gardens, Florida. The test showed he is negative for the antibodies. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced during a press conference, at the site, that a COVID-19 antibodies test will be available. The test can show if a person has had the virus in the past without showing symptoms, and therefore may be immune to it. The test will be available to first responders and health care workers first, with the goal of being able to expand testing to the general public. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT – MAY 8: Catalina Horak, executive director of non-for-profit Building One Community texts Guatemalan immigrant Zully ahead of her COVID-19 test on May 8, 2020 in Stamford, Connecticut. Zully was retested at the Family Centers Health Care clinic five weeks after being hospitalized for COVID-19 when she was almost 8 months pregnant. Staff at Stamford Hospital put her on a ventilator and performed an emergency C-section to save the child. Her baby, Neysel could not go home, as his father Marvin and brother Junior, 7, were COVID-19 positive and quarantined there. After several weeks in the hospital ICU Zully responded well to antibody blood plasma transfusions and was able to return home. The infant, Neysel, now more than one month old, is in the temporary care of elementary school teacher Luciana Lira. The K-5 Bilingual /ESL instructor, who teaches Junior at Hart Magnet Elementary in Stamford, will continue caring for the baby until his family tests COVID-negative, and they can all be reunited.

Neysel could not go home, as his father Marvin and brother Junior were COVID-19 positive and quarantined there.
