Abrams knew Leanos was the one after their first date. He revealed, "I told my mom and best friend that I found my wife and I'm going to marry her as soon as possible. Tania is the perfect combination of heart, humor and brains. Her nurturing way and compassion are incomparable, and I am constantly in awe of the love she radiates."

In September, Kyle announced his split from fellow “Love Is Blind” Season 2 alum Deepti Vempati. The pair met on the show, but didn’t start dating until later.
He explained in September, “I understand many of you are curious as to where Deepti and I stand today. Since After the Altar was filmed, we had decided to go our separate ways in early summer. Thank you to everyone who has followed our journey through arduous vulnerability and has supported us along the way.”
It turned out Deepti had met Tania, and told Us Weekly in September, “At first it was hard because, you know, obviously I care about him. But I have met [his girlfriend] before and she’s very sweet and, you know, I just want the best for him.”
Vempati said of their split, “It was, like, an amazing time, but I think we didn’t really communicate as much as we needed to about our love languages [and] what we’re expecting out of life… There was so much pressure on us and I think it really impacted our relationship. And we’re just trying to navigate this new life. It’s been tough to lose my best friend, but you know, it is what it is.”
During their time on “Love Is Blind,” Kyle was engaged to Shaina Hurley while Deepti was with Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee.
