But it wasn't always easy.

The novel coronavirus pandemic changed relationships in lots of ways. One writer explains how it helped her become closer to her new boyfriend.

‘I Quarantined With My Boyfriend Of Just Two Months During The Novel Coronavirus Pandemic’Nothing could have prepared me for living with my new boyfriend, but it’s the best decision I’ve made.ByAug 7, 2020Getty ImagesMy now-boyfriend and I met on a dating app, and it was sparks from the start. Our first date started at a fancy restaurant, then progressed to a basement gospel jazz music spot and ended with Miller High Lites at a dive bar. I knew there was a connection when we shared headphones en route to the last stop on our date, listening to CautiousClay, Still Woozy, and The National. We scheduled a second date just two days after our first and made it official two months later, on New Year’s Day.

Still, it was an unprecedented time, and there weren’t warning signs like with the last guy. I decided to go for it.

That discussion was a good thing; it tore down the wall I had built to keep him away, if not physically, then emotionally. Since then it’s like the final layer of protection that was keeping him away resolved.

He joined a Zoom call for my sister’s grad party, and I video-chat with his fam weekly. Every morning, we do a crossword puzzle. We’ve argued over whether the week starts on Monday or Sunday (it’s Monday), and he likes the toilet paper facing down, but I couldn’t care less so long as it’s stocked (we haven’t hoarded, promise!).

Looking back, if we hadn’t quarantined together, I would have regretted it. I’m grateful for how sheltering within the walls of his one-bedroom apartment helped tear down my other walls—the ones that could have come between me and someone I’m really into.
