Are Misaki Hirotani And Kaoru Miyazaki From Love Is Blind Still Together?
Misaki Hirotani knew what he wanted in his prospective partner when he joined the show. He was looking for someone who wouldn’t mind traveling to Africa with him, mind you he is Kenya’s National Baseball Team coach. He linked with singer-songwriter Kaoru Miyazaki from the start who loved Kenya, so they shared something in common.
In addition, both of them being animal lovers and having pet dogs attracted them together even more. These commonalities between the two helped them get excited to develop bonds with each other. Misaki and Kaoru spoke about various topics. But, Kaoru had something from her past that she was afraid to reveal to him because he would probably laugh it off.
The baseball coach then made it clear that she could share it with him once they meet each other face to face.
Misaki later admitted that he was ready to proceed to the next step. But, Kaoru requested another conversation and shared that they weren’t on the same page emotionally. She was admittedly too cautious but expressed her desire to continue the experiment. Misaki proposed the day after and both of them knew they were getting into it.
When they met each other face to face, they were glad that they chose to be with one another. However, things between the two started falling apart when Kaoru realized that he was a bit of an “airhead” who knew nothing about her. She accused him of forgetting her last name when asked during the show.
That particular fact along with lack of interaction between the two kinds of informed they aren’t together anymore. Kaoru is in Tokyo currently meanwhile, Misaki is headed to Kenya because of his job. But, their split hasn’t been confirmed yet.
But, Misaki has shared that he is single on his Facebook.
