NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo can't seem to do an interview lately without being asked about his love life.

Cuomo, 62 -- who split from Sandra Lee last year after 14 years together -- has been dubbed the "Love Gov" by his admirers, who in turn are nicknamed "Cuomosexuals."

So on Monday night, Cuomo was a guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," and toward the end of the interview, after talking about all things coronavirus, Fallon went in for the kill. 

Fallon asked, in an obvious nod to the state's reopening phases, "I have to ask for a friend, they want to know, I won't say her name, she wants to know what phase of dating are you currently in?"

The single and (perhaps) ready to mingle lawmaker responded, "Zero. I'm at phase zero of dating. There's no duration on phase zero. There is no automatic time that you go to phase one. You could stay at phase zero for months, by the way."

He added, "I think New York City will be fully reopened before I get out of phase zero on dating."
