When Kyle Abrams and Shaina Hurley initially connect in the pods, it’s clear that the two have feelings for each other. This becomes complicated once religion is introduced to the conversation because Kyle and Shaina have strong, conflicting beliefs.
Kyle, for his part, remains optimistic and believes it’s something that they can work through together. However, Shaina doesn’t quite agree with this notion, and she ultimately chooses to leave Mexico to give herself time alone to assess the situation.
Viewers are left on a cliffhanger following the fifth episode of “Love Is Blind,” as Shaina is seen leaving Mexico after spending little time with Kyle. The show ultimately tracks Shaina and Kyle back to Chicago, where they try to make things work.
Eventually, they fail to expand upon their initial emotional connection, and Shaina decides to call off their engagement. Kyle told The List that he learned a pretty big lesson about himself during this difficult time.
“I learned so much about myself and what I could tolerate and what I’m really looking for,” he said. “I thought giving it a shot with such drastic beliefs was the best approach. And I guess it didn’t work out.”
Even though it didn’t end the way he hoped, Kyle said he was proud of how he handled the situation with Shaina.
