Remember when Desiree Hartsock and Zak Waddell fed snow cones to that fleet of adorable children, and everything was wonderful in the world? And then Zak sang Des an acoustic ballad and we gently sobbed because of how perfect they were together?  Well, tragically, Desiree broke up with Zak after The Bachelorette's hometown dates, and he was shipped off to Texas all by his lonesome.

Zak and Des' breakup was especially gut-wrenching because of how hard Zak fell for our beloved Bachelorette, but it looks like this dude might be on the rebound. At least according to this cryptic Instagram picture of Zak and a mysterious lady-shaped (?) shadow perched atop a rock formation.

"What an unforgettable weekend!" Zak wrote along with the picture. "Let's keep climbing together."

Are you thinking what we're thinking? Because we're thinking that "climbing" is a euphemism for "making out," and that Zak has fallen for a new filly. Awww, high five, champ! While Zak has yet to confirm whether or not he's dating the shadowy figure pictured in his Instagram, we're thrilled if this means he's no longer hung up on Des.

With any luck, this mystery gal will soon be the recipient of all of the gifts Zak has to give — including but not limited to cubic zirconia promise rings, naked portrait sessions, journals with invisible poems, and musings about that one time he almost became a priest.
