Does Dating Around really result in no more dating around?

A week after season 2 of the streaming service's reality dating series graced our screens, we're sure you're pondering what happened to those couples who strolled off into the sunset together at the end of each episode. Since frustratingly Netflix doesn't provide any where-are-they-know style info on the couples during the show, we asked all of the main daters for a quick update. Are they still with the person they met on the show? Have they given up on dating for good? Have they realized that sharing a Lyft with someone they're about to dump is a mistake? Read on to find out:

Justin

ANNIE FLANAGAN/NETFLIX

"I'm still working in finance but started my own real estate investment group! I’m also working up the courage to get back on the open mic standup stage. Terrifying, I know. As far as dating goes, I actually met someone else after filming the show and we've been dating for a bit since!"

Brandon

Netflix

"After filming the show I knew exactly the type of love I finally wanted to experience. I found myself making my New Year's resolution like always. A new year new me B.S., but ultimately found that to be true. I am now in Houston, Texas with my soulmate. It took me 34 years to finally experience what love feels like and I never want to let him go."

Heather

ANNIE FLANAGAN/NETFLIX

"Since filming, from the moment I met my blind date Ernesto we both were hit right in the feels with an immediate, undeniable connection. We've been inseparable since and made it official in February. How I love this man! What an amazing organic experience it was; never did I think such a genuine relationship would stem from this, but oh, man I am so grateful."

Ben

ANNIE FLANAGAN/NETFLIX

"I’m still a computer science professor at the University of New Orleans, where I’m trying to provide normalcy and stability for my students in our wild new world. I’m happily single at the moment, but I’ve never felt more comfortable and confident with future dating prospects. And — don't tell anyone — but I also harbor a secret crush on basically every person I’ve ever known."

Deva

Netflix

"Hi everyone! Your girl Deva is safe and healthy in Wellington, New Zealand. Still haven’t found the right person and I’m good doing me until I find my matching spark."

Demi

Netflix

"From then until now, life’s hit a wild roller coaster. My business was fortunate enough to start the year on tour with Oprah and WW. Romantically, I am in a relationship with someone I met before recording the show and reconnected shortly after. This show taught me a lot of being open to opportunities and trusting that everything happens for a reason. I took a leap of faith with my current partner and it’s been the greatest love I’ve ever experienced."

That's a 1/6 success rate, Netflix. We'll take it! On to season 3...
