Things between Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are moving faster than we thought.

The couple, whose hush-hush relationship was made public earlier this month, were recently spotted spending some quality time together at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York City. Though Shockus — a producer on Saturday Night Live — is based in the Big Apple, she happily ditched her home and temporary shacked up with the two-time Oscar winner when he was in town.

The pair “have been trying to take it slow but it’s progressing quickly,” a source told People of the budding romance, which is rumored to have began in 2015 when Affleck was married to Jennifer Garner. “Their feelings are strong.”

Affleck, 44,  reportedly bonded with and Shookus, 37, over their shared interests. An insider close to the father-of-three told Us Weekly the two have been “casually dating” since April and the actor is “very happy with her.”

“Lindsay is an incredibly intelligent woman,” the source said. “They have really good conversations and just like hanging out with other.”
