Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 1 of Perfect Match Episode 8.

When Season 2 of Love Is Blind launched on Netflix in February 2022, subscribers got to know a set of Chicago-based singletons as they looked for love in the infamous pods.

Over the 10-episode regular season, contestants developed connections, got engaged, and two pairs even said "I do" (though they have since split up).

During the second season, Shaina Hurley and Shayne Jansen shared an emotional connection in the pods. Though they got engaged to other people (Shaina was with Kyle Abrams, while Shayne popped the question to Natalie Lee), they maintained a friendship after filming initially wrapped.

Shaina is now married to Christos Lardakis, while Shayne continued to have an on-and-off relationship with Natalie before they called it quits for good ahead of After the Altar.

Though they've each gone through many changes in their respective personal lives, one thing remains the same: Shayne and Shaina get along well as pals.

Is 'Love Is Blind' Season 2 alum Shayne Jansen dating anyone? Shaina Hurley says ...

Though Shayne and Natalie tried to give their relationship another shot after their ill-fated wedding day, the couple ultimately parted ways. Since then, Natalie sparked dating rumors with two-time Bachelorette alum Blake Moynes, while Shayne has kept the details of his current dating life more private, although there were rumors that he dated actress Chrissie Wunna thanks to some Instagram flirting.

As Shaina shared on the show, she has a few friends who would love to go out on a date with Shayne.

"I have tons of friends who are interested," Shaina told us, before adding that Shayne is still focusing on himself at the moment. "But I'm actually kind of proud of him. From what he's telling me, he's working on himself, focusing on himself."

After quickly rising to fame on the viral Netflix series and being the subject of rumors and memes online, Shaina said that Shayne is, understandably, taking some time to get used to his new reality.

"When the right woman comes along, I think he'll be open to it," she added. "But I think he's just kind of calming down from the roller coaster of trauma that we've all been enduring the past six months."

Shayne was dating several people on Netflix's 'Perfect Match,' but hasn't ended up with anyone... yet.

Even if Shayne did date other people, it clearly didn't work out, since he decided to go on Perfect Match. In fact, Natalie told fans on Instagram that Netflix approached them both while they were dating about going on the new show. Netflix didn't know they were together, and while they told each other that they declined, Shayne clearly didn't decline the opportunity. Natalie claimed that while filming, Shayne texted her throughout asking to get back together.

On Perfect Match, Shayne's success has been... less than ideal. And honestly, we aren't too surprised. He initially hit it off with Ines Tazi from The Circle France, and then with Izzy Fairthorne from Too Hot to Handle. By the end of Episode 4, however, Shayne was alone, once again. During the second block of episodes, Shayne hits it off with Chloe from Too Hot to Handle. But when her ex, Mitchell, shows up, Chloe is swayed back towards him.

However, Mitchell tells Chloe that he may not be ready for a relationship, and Chloe regrets her decision to send Shayne home in Episode 7. She reveals that she would be interested in Shayne if he could return... and in the name of love, anything is possible.

New episodes of Perfect Match drop on Feb. 28 on Netflix.
