Are Deepti Vempati and Kyle Abrams from “Love Is Blind” season 2 a couple? As many people suspected they were an official couple since shortly after the finale aired, there was no confirmation, that is until today. Now that “Love Is Blind: After The Alter” has premiered on Netflix, and viewers got to see where everyone is now, the time was right for the two to acknowledge their relationship. Abrams recently spilled the relationship tea to TODAY.
The Couple Became Besties Before Taking “That Leap”
“People don’t understand that we’ve been talking nonstop for two years,” Abrams said. He continued by explaining that they’ve been hanging out nearly every day since filming ended and have become “really good friends.” “The problem with dating your best friend is that when you break up, you lose your best friend,” he said. “It was tough to take that leap.” The friends eventually decided to take that leap and venture into a romantic relationship. According to Abrams, they may have taken a bit longer to “define the relationship” if it wasn’t for the three-episode reunion. “It would’ve taken a lot longer. I’m not one to rush into a relationship,” he explained. “This was the right opportunity.”
Their Relationship Began In The Pods And Grew After The Show Ended
Abrams explained that their relationship began way back in the pods. And while they both ended up getting engaged to other people while on the show, they were close to choosing each other. “We got really near the end of it was kind of between me and Shake for her,” he said. Both of their relationships from the show ended up not working out. Abrams was engaged to Shaina Hurley who recently married Christos Lardakis (who was not on the show), and Vempati was engaged to Shake Chatterjee.
Abrams said that he and Vempati are just really compatible. “She is one of the funniest people I know. Just talking to her is so much fun,” he explained. “She has so much insight. That’s ultimately what I think dating and life is about: How you get along. And I get along with her so well. She’s somebody I want to be with all the time.”
The couple have posted pics and videos of each other throughout their friendship making people wonder if they were a couple for a while. Abrams recently posted a teaser video on Instagram to get people hyped about the reunion special captioned, “Today should be interesting📺.”
