When event alters life course of a generation, official accounts usually have the best chance of surviving as historical records: speech transcripts from heads of state; front-page newspaper photos; in case of war or disaster or pandemic, final body count. What often gets lost to history is how the moment in question affects the social and emotional lives of ordinary people who survive it. So, in the interest of helping create a robust and comprehensive historical record, I would like to note for posterity that the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 was a time during which scores of quarantined or self-isolating people reconnected with their exes. Life in quarantine has been challenging for just about everyone. Many people are constantly lonely, thanks to social-distancing practices, and they are looking for new ways to connect and new people to connect with. Meanwhile, and perhaps relatedly, exes around world have been coming out of woodwork, sending texts or Instagram DMs or emails to their onetime partners after weeks, months, or even years of radio silence. Some seem to be fighting off boredom, loneliness, or growing awareness of their own mortality; others seem to be coming from a place of genuine care. In normal times, rules for initiating contact with a former partner are unspoken but familiar: Dont do it if you dont want to seem desperate or too horny for your own good. But they seem to have been suspended under extraordinary circumstances. Melissa McDowell, 43-year-old lifestyle blogger and educator in Atlanta, has heard from two of her exes in time since she been homebound. One, whom McDowell says she last speak with when they broke up about six months ago, texted her, Hey, stranger. She finds the flirty undertone particularly exasperating. 've had situations before where weve broken up and then, months or years later, they may reach out to see if maybe I miss them or something, McDowell tell me. But in this case, she suspects her exs motivation was at least partially Im bore. Let me start scrolling through my contacts. Fatima Tareen, 19-year-old college student in Pakistan, also recently woke up to texts from two exes she hadnt spoken with in months, both of whom told her that they missed her. She do talk to one of them now and then, but this time, his texts were more of a desperate attempt to get back together, She wrote to me in an email. Tareen wondered if that impulse was rooted in her ex suddenly being isolated at home with his family and having little to do during the day. Most of us are experiencing extreme sort of loneliness and arent use to having so much time to think about our lives, she say. Plus, weve hardly ever spent so much time with our families before, which could be very difficult.
