Crystal Barquinha quit her job to move into Ryan Swain's flat on the other side of the country. A couple who met on a virtual dating show during lockdown told how they decided to move in together, despite never having met in person. Ryan Swain and Crystal Barquinha agreed to take part in a Take Me Out style, socially-distanced dating show, filmed via Zoom, as they had both only been single for a few months.

I'll eat you up, OK? Shamonique, who goes by the nickname Shae, wasn't talking to me, but to an undisclosed audience of Americans who were watching her livestreamed date in real-time as part of TLC's new show "Find Love Live. Every Sunday, two single people are introduced to three prospective dates via a livestream, and anyone with an internet connection can see the aftermath.

Show host Sukanya Krishnan, a news anchor, walks each single through the process, and viewers can sound off on Twitter about their thoughts on the dates and who the single should ultimately pick.

But when the coronavirus pandemic hit, the show's producers had to think of a new way to air the show while following social-distancing procedures. Shae, for example, told Suki she was looking to date a man who is confident and independent, and Shae's mom even chimed in with date recommendations.

After introductions, Suki got right into introducing the three dates producers chose based on Shae's requests: Jasun, Michael, and Clavacia. The men only had 30 seconds to each pitch themselves, and since it was Mother's Day, they told Shae how nice they'd be to her mother. With only Clavacia, an army vet from California and Jasun, a songwriter from New Jersey, left, Suki upped the ante by turning on music. She asked the two men to have a dance-off in front of Shae and all of the viewers at home.

They obliged, and Jasun pulled up his shirt to show his abs. Throughout it all Shae was a good sport, giggling and telling jokes. But the date-off felt a bit forced and I couldn't help but have a bit of secondhand embarrassment for Shae and her two love interests.

Next came a round of questions Shae posed to both Jasun and Clavacia. She asked where they were from, their hobbies, and how they would woo her. Every answer seemed like an attempt to one-up the other contestant and Jasun and Clavacia kept talking over each other when Shae asked them a question.

According to Sarlanis, if a single feels like they don't mesh with any of the dates, they don't have to pick one by the show's end. Twitter users could also vote and who they thought would be the best man for Shae, and Suki shared those while Shae, Jasun, and Clavacia were on-screen.

The show highlights how awkward virtual dates can be

Jasun, in an attempt to win over Shae, said he's a songwriter and that he majored in psychology, so he'd be able to satisfy Shae romantically and be a pro communicator in their relationship. Clavacia doubled down, saying that he too could write, but his preferred medium was poetry.

He offered to write Shae poems and then go on virtual hiking trips where he could read her the poems out loud. Shae seemed to enjoy both mens' answers, but Jasun and Clavacia would jokingly call each other's responses "cute," trying to undermine each other.

Jasun also told Shae that he worried Clavacia lived too far away, so he'd be the better choice for Shae. Suki welcomed the play-fighting, and pushed Shae along to choose one of the men even though she seemed conflicted. In the end, Shae decided to go on another date with Clavacia and leave Jasun behind.
