Married at First Sight alum Lindsey Georgoulis has revealed she's dating her "long-lost love" whom she plans to settle down with following her divorce from Mark Maher on Season 14.
Lindsey and Mark appeared on the Married at First Sight: Kickoff Special for Season 15 that aired Wednesday night on Lifetime, and Lindsey seemingly couldn't wait to tell host Kevin Frazier about the new development in her love life.
"I've been so good. I just feel really lucky," Lindsey gushed with a big smile.
Lindsey moved to the West Coast after she and Mark had decided to get a divorce at the end of their Married at First Sightseason, and she bragged about how life has been "going better than I ever could have imagined."
Lindsey nearly jumped out of her skin to announce, "I have my guy."
"It's my long-lost love back again!" Lindsey shared "Eleven years ago today we were in Costa Rica together. We talked for years after we broke up because I really love him."
Lindsey insisted that this man wanted to get married when they were first involved but she "wasn't ready" at the time.
"So I moved away and I kind of really hurt him," explained Lindsey, who was living in Boston when she filmed Married at First Sight.
"I literally thought of him the other day and I saw a message from him, and it said, 'Hey, how are you?' I said, 'Hey, I'm in California,' and he lives in California!"
Lindsey said when she told the mystery man about her location, he claimed he was on a flight landing in San Francisco in two hours.
Lindsey revealed that the man showed up at her house one hour after his plane landed.
"I've been down there to visit him twice, and he's been up here to visit me twice," Lindsey said.

"And we're just navigating how to make it work while he's in Long Beach and I'm in San Francisco until we can be in the same house and have a family and get married and do the whole thing!"
Lindsey took a shot at Mark when she said she plans to keep her new romance "old school" and "in house," meaning she's not okay with her significant other constantly receiving advice or listening to the opinions of others.
"You can't talk about your marriage outside your marriage to everyone, and you can't talk about your relationship outside of your relationship to everyone -- unless it's positive," Lindsay said, adding how she wants to protect her relationship and "keep it sacred."
Lindsey and Mark's marriage got off to a good start, as they both found each other attractive and could immediately decipher commonalities and why the experts had probably matched them.
Lindsey gushed about how her husband was amazing during their honeymoon in Puerto Rico, and Mark could tell that Lindsey is a nurturing woman who would care for him a lot.
However, as time progressed, Mark found Lindsey to be "a lot" and "too much" with her boisterous and outspoken personality. He also complained how she would get very mean and confrontational with their fellow cast members, especially when drinking alcohol was involved.
"I wish Lindsey was more empathetic towards me. Sometimes I feel like a punching bag in this marriage," Mark explained. "I'd rather be alone than fight with someone every single day."
On Lindsey's side of things, she could feel Mark putting walls up, and she accused him of not putting enough effort into their marriage. Lindsey said she wanted a man who would challenge her and dote on her, and she claimed Mark was failing as a husband.
Lindsey sometimes lashed out and insulted Mark and his income. They would get into brutal fights, and she once called him "white bread" and said he wasn't giving her "sparks and butterflies." She also hated how much he used social media.
Trying to focus on the fun times they had shared instead of the lows in their relationship, the pair agreed to stay married on Decision Day.
Lindsey explained how Mark was not the husband she had envisioned or everything she had asked the experts for but he's "everything" she needs.
During the reunion special that aired in May, Lindsey revealed she and Mark had broken up about a month after Decision Day after they worked on renovating a house together to live in. Lindsey called Mark "heartless" and said he bailed on her right when they were about to finish unpacking their last box.
But Mark claimed Lindsey had bullied him and that their relationship was completely toxic. He said Lindsey made "crazy threats," but Lindsey argued Mark had forgotten her birthday and she only made his life better.
"It was way out of control, some of the worst arguments I've ever had in my life," Mark alleged.
Lindsey proceeded to move to California, where she hoped to meet a man with more intellect.
The Married at First Sight: Where Are They Now? special that aired on June 1 showed Mark and Lindsey signing their divorce papers.
Lindsey apologized for terrible things she had said about Mark during filming, and the pair agreed they could maybe become friends in the future.
