After Love is Blind season two cast members Kyle Abrams and Deepti Vempati left the show spouseless, many of us wondered if maybe there was potential for the after the Love is Blind reunion show, when Kyle admitted he think he should have married Deepti! Now, after a video of the two out and about together surfaced on TikTok, we have to ask—are Kyle and Deepti dating?!
*Warning: Love is Blind season two spoilers ahead!*
For those who don’t know, Kyle and Deepti formed a connection in the pods, but Kyle ended up on one knee for Shaina Hurley—while Deepti said yes to Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee. Sadly (or not so sadly) both relationships did not work out.
Kyle and Shaina called their engagement quits after struggling with differing views on religion, and Queen Deepti iconically said ‘I don’t’ to Shake after hearing that he did not find her attractive. It seemed as though Kyle and Deepti's respective quests for love were over—until Kyle seemingly confessed his love for Deepti in the reunion show!
Then as the rumor mill began to spin, we were treated to this now-viral TikTok video of the pair, out in Chicago together. So are they dating or what? Here’s everything we know about this mysterious pair!
Are Kyle and Deepit dating?
In the reunion, Kyle shocked viewers by voicing his regret over not proposing to Deepti in the pods, despite their obvious connection.
He 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.” Kyle said. SO cute.
Much to fans' frustration, the show or the reunion hosts—Nick and Vanessa Lachey—didn’t delve any deeper into this confession. So when this TikTok below of the two together surfaced, it’s safe to say fans were excited.
In the video, we see the pair walking together, in Chicago and then a waitress calling out to them and offering free mimosas. Like anyone would, the two agree and are seen going into the restaurant together, with eagle-eyed fans spotting Kyle putting his hand on Deepti’s back.
Before the video surfaced, Deepti spoke to Elite Daily (opens in new tab) on where she and Kyle were not an item. She said: "We’re just trying to figure it out, there’s a lot on our plate right now...we’ll see what happens.”
Speaking on the rumors she added: “The speculation is really funny. We’re close, but the people are going insane and it’s fun to watch.”
The pair—Kyle in particular—have been teasing fans over on their own TikTok accounts too, sharing cryptic videos that appear to show Deepti in the background...
So while there’s no official confirmation that they are dating, the evidence suggests they are spending plenty of time together, so watch this space!
Are Sal and Natalie dating?
Another Love is Blind couple, Salvador Perez and Natalie Lee, have also been sparking speculation of a post-pod romance.
Both contestants appeared as though they were heading for marriage, with Sal seemingly head-over-heels for Mallory Zapata, and Natalie besotted with Shayne Jansen. But both relationships faltered at the altar, with Natalie and Sal respectively saying 'I don't' instead of 'I do'.
So have fan favorites Sal and Natalie paired up instead after the show? Fans suspect so, after the two have been seen sharing numerous pictures together on their Instagram stories, and commenting on each other’s posts.
One such example saw Salvador comment: “Casual Wednesday?...Pshh My goodness 📸📸📸📸” on a picture of Natalie wearing a long, red dress.

Sadly though, it seems these two have found a friendship rather than a romantic connection.
Natalie said on the podcast Tea With Publyssity podcast: "I know there's been speculation that me and Sal are dating; we are not. We're just really, really close friends." So that’s that then.
Are Shayne and Shaina dating?
After Shaina confessed her feelings for Shayne on the show, and his relationship with Natalie failed, many thought another romance between Shayne and Shaina would blossom. However, Shayne put rumors to bed with a long post on Instagram.
In his statement, he wrote a lengthy apology to ex-fiancée Natalie and said: “To put some other rumors to rest, Shaina and I are cordial and have hung out in group gatherings with the cast (with Natalie), but we have never had nor will ever have a romantic relationship. I wish her all the best.”

So all our hopes for a new Love Is Blind couple rest on Kyle and Deepti, it seems!
