Mindy, who starred on Season 10 of Married at First Sight, posted a series of cute photos with Wil Slickers, who hosts Slick Talk: The Hospitality Podcast, Instagram on Friday, showing the couple on a recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico together.
"@slicktalkpod Remember that time our first 'real' date turned into a vacation to Mexico? Told ya I was adventurous! And even though I spent most of my time rubbing aloe on your sunburn, I still had the time of my life," Mindy captioned the slideshow of the couple, along with a kiss-blowing emoticon.
"Can't wait til our next adventure, but until then, I took the liberty of enrolling us both in Spanish class. While we've mastered the phrase 'poquito espanol,' I think we can do even better."
After adding a winking emoticon, Mindy concluded, "Thanks to everyone at @oleohotels and @bestday_travel for helping make this a dream vaca! #allinclusiveresorts #cancun #hesmylobster #spf50."
Comments poured in from fans calling Wil an "upgrade" from Mindy's Married at First Sight husband Zach Justice and saying Mindy deserves to be happy and treated well by a man.
Wil also had posted about his trip with Mindy in his Instagram Stories prior to Mindy's Instagram posting.
"There is somebody. It's not, like, official because we haven't actually met in person, but there is someone special," Mindy said during an episode of Married at First Sight alums Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner's Hot Marriage Cool Parents podcast.
Mindy seemed to hint Wil was that "someone special" in her Friday Instagram post when she confirmed the their "first 'real' date turned into a vacation to Mexico," suggesting the pair had only communicated through videochat prior to meeting face to face.
Wil later confirmed he was indeed the "virtual dinner date guy" Mindy had previously mentioned to Jamie and Doug in a reply to a comment one of Mindy's followers made on her posting.

"Is this the 'virtual dinner date' guy?" the follower asked.
"That's me!" Wil replied, adding a laughing emoji.
When Mindy appeared on Jamie and Doug's podcast, she was quarantining at her mother's beach house in North Carolina. Since the 34-year-old figure skating coach from Maryland wasn't working, she had some free time on her hands and tested out virtual dating.
"I actually have been dating! Yeah! So it's hard right now, you know, with being quarantined and everything," Mindy shared.
"I know it sounds kind of dorky and everything, but I'm, like, into it! Because it's great that you can explore a connection and everything without any pressure or anything physical happening and stuff. So [the physical] is just completely off the table."
Mindy explained her experience virtual dating was the opposite of Married at First Sight because a connection is formed before meeting the person.
"It's just FaceTime, Zoom meetings, Skype, whatever you use. I'll cook a meal with somebody or I'll watch a movie or just have a drink. You do an actual kind of date," Mindy added.
Mindy also revealed at the time her love interest knew about her stint on Married at First Sight but didn't watch her season.
Mindy was matched by Married at First Sight experts Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles and Pastor Calvin Roberson to wed Zach, a 32-year-old fitness professional from St. Mary's, GA, on Season 10 of the Lifetime series.
In early July, Mindy publicly called out Zach on Instagram by begging him to respond to her divorce requests. She accused Zach of ignoring her attempts to proceed with their divorce.
"Hey @thecasualathlete! Will you divorce me? Yes? No?" Mindy captioned a selfie from their wedding with the kiss-blowing emoticon. "Circle one. #thisgirwantsadivorce #checkyourtexts #crickets."
One of Mindy's followers asked in the comments section, "What? You haven't divorce him yet?"
"I've been trying!!" Mindy replied at the time.
But Zach wrote back to the exchange and slammed Mindy in the process, suggesting she had lied and was drunk when posting about their divorce.
"@mindy_shiben lol you've been trying? With what attorney and what papers? Please, don't lie to these people for attention, it's gross," Zach responded.
"Im sure you and Kinetic Content will be in the loop. #stayclassy #dontdrinkandgram," he added, referencing Married at First Sight's production company.
Mindy then caught Zach in lies and lost all trust in him, which was the end of the road for them as a couple.
After a tumultuous and emotional journey, Mindy dumped Zach and asked for a divorce nearly two weeks before "Decision Day" because he had put little-to-no effort into their relationship and had engaged in an inappropriate and disrespectful friendship with Mindy's pal Lindsay behind her back.
Following Mindy's unsurprising decision to split from Zach, she threw herself a divorce party and gushed about how she had found an inner strength she never knew existed before.
Mindy revealed on Married at First Sight's tenth-season reunion special that aired in April she was starting to date again but predicted it would be "a little while" before she'd get involved with another serious relationship.
