BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — An international couple is working to prove to our governments that “love is essential”.

Brina Romanek and Dan McArdle met on Hinge about a year ago.

After realizing they live across the border from each other two hours into their first conversation, they decided to make it work.

Weekly visits were the norm, until the border closure in March.

The couple has been using Zoom to stay connected, but soon found many other couples dealing with separation.

Romance and McArdle started a podcast: 1,091 Meters to Love to tell these stories.
