Since their love triangle with Shaina, viewers have wanted to know if Shayne and Natalie are still together from Love Is Blind season 2 or if their relationship lasted as long as their time in The Pods.

Shayne Jansen and Natalie Lee 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 Shayne and Natalie still together from Love Is Blind season 2? Read on for where Shayne and Natalie from Love Is Blind season 2 are now and if they’re still dating after their love triangle with Shaina.

Are Shayne and Natalie still together from Love Is Blind season 2?

SPOILER: Are Shayne Jansen and Natalie Lee still together from Love Is Blind season 2? Shayne, a 32-year-old real estate agent and broker, and Natalie, a a 29-year-old consulting manager, met and got engaged in The Pods on Love Is Blind season 2, but broke up at their wedding during the finale when Natalie told Shayne that there relationship wasn’t where it needed to be for her to marry him but she would like to still stay together. Shayne, upset by her rejection, told Natalie that he would have to think about whether he’d still want to be with her. So…are Shayne and Natalie still together from Love Is Blind season 2? The answer is maybe. Shayne and Natalie hinted that they’re still together in separate Instagram posts on February 28, 2022, where they thanked each other for what they’ve learned in their relationship. “Thank you to everyone for your love and support as you’ve followed our love story these last few weeks! I am so grateful for all of your supportive messages and comments ❤️” Natalie captioned an Instagram slideshow of photos and videos of her and Shayne. “And to @shaynejansen – I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this. We may have had our ups and downs, but you have always protected me and had my back. And thank you for loving me for ME, and always encouraging me to embrace and love my flaws. When I told you I was self conscious about my deep stretch marks, you told me everyday after you loved them and they were beautiful. Even if I did this experiment a thousand times knowing the outcome, I would have always chosen you.”

Shayne, for his part, also shared an Instagram slideshow of photos and videos of him and Natalie, where he also denied that he and Shaina, another Love Is Blind season 2 contestant he talked to in The Pods, ever had a romantic relationship.” Natalie Mina Lee. Where do I start? This journey with you will be something I’ll never forget. It was easily the best time of my life and I would do it all over again knowing I get to spend more time with you. From our first date eating in-n-out and you getting both milkshakes to our walks around grant park. You are the most beautiful soul and you really brought out the best in me as a man.,” he wrote. “As a man watching our story over again I’m remorseful for my actions and all I can do is learn from them to be a better man. I’m proud of being vulnerable and being as genuine as possible. I don’t know what’s next for us but I do know that I will never stop loving you.” He continued, “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.” Natalie, for her part, commented,  “You are a better man ❤️.”

Of course, Shayne and Natalie didn’t have an easy relationship on Love Is Blind season 2. Shayne and Natalie reached their first rough patch in episode one after Shayne mistook Natalie for Shaina while in The Pods and called her by the wrong name. Shayne and Natalie overcame their issues after Shayne chose Natalie over Shaina (who got engaged to Kyle) and proposed to her. After their engagement, Shayne and Natalie met face-to-face before they went on a retreat together in Mexico with the rest of the engaged couples from Love Is Blind season 2. “I came here to find a wife. I cannot wait to make it official with her,” Shayne said in a confessional interview after he met Natalie. Natalie, for her part, told producers, “Meeting Shayne today, it absolutely was the best day of my life. I can’t wait to see him again and spend the next chapter of our lives together. A 1,000 chapters of our lives together. Now we have to figure out how we work as a couple in the real world, where there are distractions.” She continued, “Meeting my parents, that’s going to be interesting. I love the way I feel right now. I’m so confident in us and I’m so excited for our marriage and everything else that’s about to come.”

During the retreat, Natalie and Shayne faced more hiccups in their relationship when they realized their differences in how they live. “I know about Shayne’s nighttime routine. I know that he sleeps with the TV and eats in bed, and that’s my worst nightmare, so we’re going to have to figure that out tonight,” Natalie said in a confessional interview. “You think I’ll ever eat in my bed? Look at me. Nothing touches my bed. I have white sheets at home.” Natalie and Shayne saw more cracks in their relationship later at the retreat when Shayne asked Natalie if she thought he was “pretty,” to which she responded, “Are you fishing for compliments?” The question upset Shayne who told Natalie that he didn’t appreciate her sarcastic jokes about him. “Honestly, you gotta stop doing that to me. I’m trying to have a conversation. ‘Are you fishing for compliments?’ Stop. Have a normal conversation. You’re making it much harder than what it is,” he told her. “You joke a lot. It kinda gets a little old after a while. I’m sorry but it’s true.”

Later in the retreat, Natalie also told Shayne that she noticed more differences between them when he was around his friends from Love Is Blind. “When you’re with your guy friends, it’s on a whole another level. I think in that way, we’re different people. I don’t think we have to work on it. It’s just something I have to get used to,” she said. “It is who you are. It’s fine.” Shayne then told Natalie about how he didn’t like the way she saw their relationship. “You gotta give our relationship a little more credit,” he said. “You joke a lot about our relationship. But how often do you say how good it is?” Natalie responded, “Why do I have to? Why do we have to talk about how great it is with other people?” Natalie and Shayne then realize how different they are when it comes to talking about their relationship. “I brag all the time about us,” Shayne said, to which Natalie responded, “I want to too, but it’s just not my style.”

Shayne and Natalie broke up during their wedding in episode 10 after Shayne said “I do” at the altar and Natalie didn’t say the same. Natalie later revealed in an argument with Shayne after their wedding that they had a heated fight the night before their nuptials, where Shayne told Natalie that he “hated” her and that she was the “worst” thing that’s ever happened to him. Natalie told producers later in the episode that the fight was why she decided not to marry him. Though Natalie told Shayne that she’d still like to still continue their relationship and work through their issues, Shayne told Natalie that he wasn’t sure he wanted to be with her anymore after she rejected him at their wedding. At the time Love Is Blind season 2 premiered, Natalie and Shayne didn’t follow each other on Instagram and hadn’t liked any of each other’s recent Instagram posts. (They’ve since followed each other.)Shayne, for his part, followed Shaina on Instagram, and 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, who Shaina got engaged to, and Shayne also follow each other and have liked each other’s Instagram posts. Natalie and Shaina don’t follow each other.
