A woman has been forced to isolate with a guy she met on Tinder after they both tested positive for Covid on their first date.
Explaining the incredible story on TikTok, user @poppymoore777 said that the pair had just met and both discovered they were infected, so isolated together at his house.
They barely knew each other, but as they were facing 7 days of isolation together, she decided to document their time on TikTok.
At the start of a video that’s been viewed 14.6 million times, she showed users a short clip of her positive Covid lateral flow test.

Then, in a series of various other clips, she zoomed in on the things that had been keeping them going, including a bag of protein powder, empty beer crates, an UberEats bag and Mario Kart.

The woman explained that she had to isolate with him, as isolating alone wasn’t a possibility due to her circumstances.
But, it seems other TikTokers were a fan of the unusual situation and modern-day way of getting to know someone.
One person said: “I mean I would rather this than alone.”
Another wrote: “This is a new age rom-com.”
