In January, she posted a photo with her beau on Instagram and included a heartfelt caption that read, "What can I say, except thank you Lord!! It's been a long time, this [single] life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope. God has sent me true love. For all of you waiting on LOVE—don't give up—keep God first and he will see that you meet your match. #godisall." Clearly, all of her positive energy helped her find the one.
But you'll never guess how the two got together. "I met my fiancé online," Lyte told Essence exclusively. She explained that after being a single woman in Los Angeles for a few years, she knew she was ready for love. She knew John was her man when she looked into his eyes saw all the honesty and truth behind them. "My biggest thing with dating was the ability to be vulnerable. With [John] I can totally just let go and be myself," she added. That's all anyone can hope for in a relationship!
