Coronavirus has put a pause on many of the things we're used to doing, but it hasn't stopped people from pursuing love.

Thousands of people are stuck at home looking for companionship on online dating apps. Thousands more have now found themselves in "long distance" relationships, thanks to social distancing.

To discuss these questions, we spoke with Carrie Lee Riggins, a ballet dancer who moved in with boyfriend after two dates, Nick Young, a student unexpectedly in a long-distance relationship, Dr. Alexandra Solomon, psychologist and assistant professor at Northwestern University's Family Institute, and Daniel Ahmadizadeh, co-founder of Quarantine Together, a dating app made in response to coronavirus.
