Man Tries Dating by Drone While Social Distancing During Coronavirus Outbreak


Like many of us, Jeremy Cohen, an NYC based photographer, has been social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, so he used his trusty drone to make his move on a girl.

Cohen wanted to show that he has game in the dating world, so he spotted a girl dancing on a roof and knew it was love at first sight.

In a TikTok video that has gone viral, Cohen is seen taping a note with his phone number to a drone and flying it over to the building where the girl was dancing, Good Morning America reported. The TikTok video was shared to Twitter, which now has over 4.4 million views.

"It was really nice out that day, so people were chilling on their rooftops exercising, doing their thing," Cohen said. "[I saw] this girl dancing, and she's on the rooftop right across from me. I had never met her before. I yelled over …. but she couldn't really hear, and we just wave at each other."

The woman's name is Tori Cignarella, and she is 23-years-old. She said she was hanging out with her roommate and actually dancing to songs from "High School Musical."

Cignarella was not expecting to get a phone number and recalled how she actually did hear Cohen yelling at her.

"[I] put my number on a drone, saying 'text me' and I just flew it over to her, and then she texted," Cohen said.

Since that drone flew over to Cignarella's building, the rest is history. The two have been texting and plan to go on a virtual date later in the week.
