After Shake put Deepti through the wringer in Love Is Blind season 2, fans of the series celebrated as the reality star found off-screen romance with fellow contestant Kyle. Now, we’re getting a closer look at their relationship in the trailer for the upcoming season of Love Is Blind: After the Altar.
The second season of the reality series, which focuses on the aftermath of Love Is Blind, premieres on Netflix on September 16 and promises to follow up on two of their most popular love birds. “I just want to be around him all the time honestly,” Deepti says in the trailer, which Netflix dropped on August 21.
However, based on a few clips, it appears Kyle may be holding back. “If you don’t make your move, I just don’t want you to regret it,” Nick tells Kyle, while another shot features Danielle telling producers, “Deepti and Kyle care for one another… but after Shake, she doesn’t deserve to go through that heartbreak again.”
Towards the end of the trailer, Deepti seems to open up to Kyle, telling him, “If we take it there, it could be the best thing ever, but what if it doesn’t work out?” You can watch the full video here:
The (maybe) couple’s relationship kicked off after Kyle admitted he wished he had proposed to Deepti instead of Shaina during the reunion special. “The biggest regret is I should have asked Deepti to marry me,” Kyle said at the time. “That’s what I learned the most. I fucked up.” Kyle also looked Deepti in the eye during the reunion and said, “I should have tried harder for you.”
Instead, on the show, Kyle got engaged to Shaina, while Deepti got engaged to Shake. Obviously, neither of those relationships worked out. Referring to Deepti during the reunion, Kyle added, “I mean, I love her so much. She’s the best. And I wish I saw what was right in front of me. That’s my biggest regret. I’m sorry…I love her. She’s the best.”
In March, Deepti played it coy when asked about their budding relationship. “Kyle and I, we are figuring it out,” she told Elite Daily. “Not a lot of people know that we had a really strong connection in the pods. I was really struggling to pick between Shake and Kyle [in the pods].”
