Shelter at home has greatly impacted people's social lives...including their love life.

Julie Spira is an online dating expert and founder of The Cyber Dating Expert. She says there has been an uptick in people finding a love connection online.

Tinder is just one of the many dating apps that are opening premium features like their Passport for the time being.

Spira says this is an excellent way to meet more people regardless of their zip code. She says during this pandemic, everyone is essentially long-distance dating since they can’t see each other in person.

Video calls, she adds, are very important to take seriously if you are really interested in who you are speaking with.

Her biggest rule during those video calls - don't be lazy. Dress up as you would for a first date.
