As one of the most tumultuous couples this season, viewers want to know if Shaina and Kyle are still together after Love Is Blind season 2 or if their relationship ended once they went from The Pods to real life.

Shaina Hurley and Kyle Abrams are two of 30-plus contestants on Love Is Blind season 2. Love Is Blind, which first premiered on Netflix in February 2020, follows 30 men and women over the course of 10 days as they speed-date in “Pods,” where they can talk to each other but not see each other. During the 10 days, the couples can decide if they want to get engaged—still sight unseen. After the proposal, the couples meet face-to-face for the first time and go on vacation at a resort in Mexico, where they learn more about each other and meet the other couples. After the trip, the couples, who all live in the same city, return to the real world and move into an apartment together as they meet each other’s families and friends and prepare for their weddings. At the altar on their wedding days, the couples must decide whether to marry or breakup as they answer the age-old question of if love can be truly blind.

Since the premiere of Love Is Blind, the show has become one of Netflix’s highest-rated series, with more than 30 million views in its first two months.”Across the world, everybody feels the same way: Everyone wants to be loved for who they are on the inside. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you look like, how old you are, what your background is, which class you know, or social structure you feel like you’re a part of, everyone wants to be loved for who they are,” creator Chris Coelen told Variety in 2020. “In today’s society we’ve got all these ways to find love through dating apps and technology. Those things sort of counterintuitively have made people feel disposable. They’ve made people feel like it’s all surface level. It does the opposite thing it was supposed to do. So we thought, what if we took everybody’s devices away, how could we get them to focus on connecting with other people?”

Coelen also told Variety about how the connections on Love Is Blind was based on choice, which is why the relationships were that much stronger. “It was incredibly scary because nobody had to do anything, versus a show like we do Married at First Sight, you sign up and you know, you’re getting married to a stranger. Here, nobody had to do anything. It was if you find someone, if you choose. Which is so scary. They don’t have to go through with the wedding ceremony,” he said. “But assuming they found someone, could that love overcome any judgment in the real world? That’s an incredibly fascinating question. And that’s what we set out to try to examine.”

So are Shaina and Kyle still together after Love Is Blind season 2? Read on for where Shaina and Kyle from Love Is Blind season 2 are now and if they’re still together after their love triangle (square?) with Shayne and Natalie.

Are Shaina and Kyle still together from Love Is Blind season 2?

SPOILER: Are Shaina Hurley and Kyle Abrams still together from Love Is Blind season 2? Shaina, a 32-year-old hairstylist, and Kyle, a 29-year-old glazier and construction worker, met and got engaged in The Pods on Love Is Blind season 2 but broke up in episode 6 weeks before their wedding due to their religious differences. Though there were rumors that the two had reunited off-camera after Love Is Blind season 2 finished filming, Shaina confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in February 2022 that she has “love” for Kyle but they don’t have a relationship. “I love Kyle. I think he’s a great man,” she said. “We don’t really talk. We don’t communicate.” Kyle also confirmed to Us Weekly that he and Shaina aren’t friends. “There’s nothing left. I mean, we’re not friends or anything. She doesn’t come out much. That ship has sailed,” he said.

In episode 2, Shaina, a 32-year-old hairstylist, and Kyle, a 29-year-old glazier and construction worker, learned of their differences when it came to religion. Shaina is a devout Christian, while Kyle, who was raised Catholic, is an atheist. “Shaina has extreme views on religion, and I have extreme views on religion,” Kyle said in a confessional interview. “I could definitely fall in love with Shaina, but we’re such polar opposites and I don’t think either of us is goin to change each other. And it scares me.” Shaina and Kyle went on to get engaged and meet each other face-to-face. But during their retreat, Shaina expressed  her concerns over their religious differences. “Do I want to have the conversation with Kyle about our differences? Yes, no,” Shaina said in a confessional interview. “It’s one of those things where it’s like, you’re preparing for the worst, hoping for the best, but you don’t want to know the answer, but you know the answer.”

After they arrived at the retreat, Shaina tells Kyle that she wants to spend their first night in separate rooms, to which Kyle is confused by. When she went back to her own room, Shaina told producers that she plans to break up with Kyle. “I just feel like we’re both passionate about what we believe in, and we’re both not going to change. I feel like I do know in my head what I actually feel. I can leave Mexico a single woman,” she said. Shaina also confirms in episode four that Shaina left the retreat without him. “Last night, I was taken aback. Shaina decided that she should just end our trip early and go home. I need better communication from Shaina. She’s a horrible communicator,” he said. “I’m going to have to adjust a lot in order for us to move forward with our relationship. Eventually, I’ll get more confident physically around her. I’ll grow on her a little. Shaina is going to be madly in love with me at the end of it. Ready to get married.”

Shaina and Kyle’s relationship issues also came after Shayne, a 32-year-old real estate agent, chose Natalie, a 29-year-old consulting manager, over her. Shaina and Kyle broke up in episode 6 of Love Is Blind season 2 after Kyle met Shaina’s family, and Shaina realized that their religious differences were just too much for their relationship. She also told Shayne about her lingering feelings for him. Shayna, however, rejected Shayna and told her that he’s still committed to Natalie. At the time Love Is Blind season 2 premiered, Shayna and Kyle both followed each other on Instagram. Shaina and Shayne also follow each other, and Shaina even liked an Instagram photo Shayne posted in February 2022 of him on Love Is Blind. “Jeans: Torn Heart: TBD,” Shayne captioned a still from him in The Pods. Kyle and Shayne also follow each other and have liked each other’s Instagram posts.
