When it comes to office jobs, the irrational rule is “First in, last out.” If we apply this concept to Love Is Blind, we could say that the first couple to get engaged might be the last to split up, if they ever do. In season 2, 35-year-old Nick Thompson and 28-year-old Danielle Ruhl were the first couple to get engaged.
Nick Thompson And Danielle Ruhl were still engaged in the season 2 finale – and in the end, they were one of only two couples who ended up saying “I do” on the show. But are they still together today?
The cast members of Love Is Blind got pretty good at making sure there was no spoiler evidence of their couple (or lack thereof) on their social media accounts before the final episodes dropped. However, considering that both Nick Thompson And Danielle Ruhl still follow each other via Instagram, it at least seems like they’re still together today. We’ll have to wait and see for sure.
Love Is Blind Season 2: Nick Thompson And Danielle Ruhl Formed An Early Connection In The Pods.
In the pods, Nick said that in an ideal world, he ends up with someone he can “spend the rest of his life with and have a good time with.” It is possible that he found this in Danielle Ruhl. Nick has accomplished a lot in his life, and he wanted someone to share the life he has built with. Our introduction to Danielle was very different from Nick’s. She dug a little deeper by sharing a story that really marked her. On her way home from school one day when she was about 12 years old, Danielle was flirting with a boy she knew.
Unfortunately, she heard him say, “This girl’s fat,” and that interaction has followed her into every relationship. Her constant fear is that a man she is interested in will take her physical appearance into consideration. Danielle Ruhl, we just want to give you a hug!
When Nick and Danielle Ruhl arrived in Mexico with the other engaged couples, they were four weeks away from their wedding. This was the time when their newfound love was really put to the test.
For Danielle Ruhl, something she has always struggled with is physical intimacy. Once again, she returns to the complicated relationship she has with her own body. In a confessional interview, she said that she never got close to someone so quickly but with Nick, she felt “more confident than she ever has.”
However, things got rough for the couple when Danielle came down with food poisoning on the same night all the couples got together to go out. Nick went alone while Danielle embraced the bathroom. Later, when he returned to the room, she seemed to feel better but was not happy with him, apparently a little jealous of an interaction he had with a woman, which she had seen happen from the balcony.
