Flirting in the time of coronavirus: Man flies drone to get woman’s number

A man in New York practising social distancing from his home went above and beyond other suitors when he saw a pretty neighbour dancing on her rooftop.

Jeremy Cohen, who lives in Brooklyn, flew a drone with his number written on a piece of paper to a “quarantine cutie” he spotted from his balcony and captured the moment in a video posted to TikTok.

Posting the video on Twitter, Cohen said, “I can’t believe this actually worked and yes this is a real story.”

“I looked out my window and saw this girl dancing, perhaps to a TikTok song,” the 28-year-old said in the video.

The two made eye contact, smiled and waved at each other.

The video then cuts to Cohen quickly scribbling his number and taping it on his drone to make the move.

He also said in the video that he got a text from the woman an hour later.

“I thought she was really cute from far away,” Cohen told the New York Post. “During this quarantine, I think everyone is fiending for social interaction. I was like, ‘Oh my God, a girl. I haven’t seen one for so long.’ ”

The video has garnered over five million views since it was posted on Twitter on Sunday.

Though one news site has dubbed the move “love in the time of coronavirus” — a reference to Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s book Love in the Time of Cholera — it’s probably more accurate to call it flirting in the time of coronavirus.
