We couldn't help but wonder: Are Deepti and Kyle officially an item?! 

Love Is Blind couples met different fates at the end of season 2, but Deepti and Kyle weren't even paired together in the pods—or so viewers thought. The unconventional dating approach ultimately seemed to work, but not in the way many of us anticipated. 

Suspicions about the two contestants grew when they were spotted looking lovey-dovey at Coachella alongside another reality TV couple that we didn't see coming: Katie Thurston and John Hersey. Who doesn't love a good crossover?

There was hand-holding, smooches and selfies galore in Thurston's Coachella carousel. Well, they do say pictures are worth a 1,000 words, right? Have a look below and judge for yourself. 

What's going on with Deepti and Kyle?

Are Kyle and Deepti dating? It seems the two are pretty smitten, but neither one has actually confirmed a relationship just yet, despite the cozy Coachella pics. They appear to be getting to know each other on a more romantic level, but labels have yet to enter the picture, as far as we know. 

One week prior to their Coachella outing, the two crossed paths with TMZ (opens in new tab) in WeHo, and the brand's photographers also questioned the two on their relationship status. 

"Great question," Kyle said to the paps. 

Considering they've embarked on different outings together and have a tendency to leave sexy comments on one another's Instagram (opens in new tab) accounts, the romantic wheels are seemingly in motion. Plus, Deepti has also confessed that they did have a connection in the pods that was unaired. 

And let's not forget about that TikTok. During the Love Is Blind reunion, Kyle said: “I should have tried harder for [Deepti], I love her so much, she’s the best. And I wish I saw what was right in front of me and that’s my biggest regret. I’m sorry."

Shortly thereafter, the TikTok below made its way to FYPs. The two were spotted out and about in Chicago, and we don't need to tell you that those smiles look pretty wide.
