Emily Atack has been dating virtually during lockdown but admitted she prefers face-to-face dates
Emily Atack has been dating virtually during lockdown.
The 30-year-old actress split from Rob Jowers in September and took part in a few Zoom dates during the Covid-19 pandemic but admitted she prefers face-to-face dates.
She told The Sun newspaper: 'I had a couple of Zoom dates and realised I need the tactile vibes. I've got to have the physical connection. I spoke to a couple of pleasant people but Zoom dating ain't for me.
"Once social distancing is over I'm straight back to the hugs and the physical chemistry you have with someone. You can't beat it."
However, Emily insisted she would prefer be single than be unhappy in a relationship.
She said: "I'm single by choice because I chose to end previous relationships that weren't right for me.
"I've only been single for nine months and that's a really nice time to be by yourself. This is the longest I've ever been single.
"I've always been in relationships so I know I don't struggle to get a boyfriend. I'm just choosing career and fun and all those things at the moment.
"I'm 30 now and I've never been on my own before so the past nine months of being on my own was an important thing for me to do."
