The Bachelor is helping people find love, even off the TV screen.
Two Bachelor alums, Becca Tilley and Robert Graham, are dating now — and things seem to be getting pretty serious.
Even though Tilley and Graham didn’t meet on-screen, Bachelor Nation definitely played a part in their relationship. They met because they were both past stars on the show — Tilley was a contestant on Chris Soules’ season and later on Ben Higgins’ season, while Graham competed for Desiree Hartsock’s love and then became one of the first bachelors to hit the beach on the first season of Paradise.
Tilley and Graham have been friends for a long time, sparking dating rumors with their adorable Instagram posts together, but they only confirmed earlier this week that they’re actually dating. And they’re moving pretty quickly, because they also dished that Graham just met Tilley’s family.
“He met all of my family [Sunday] night, except for my brother,” Tilley said at the launch party for her new blog. “Everyone loved him.”
Tilley and Graham had their first date months ago, but he lived in Los Angeles while she lived in San Diego, and with the distance, “things just really didn’t happen,” Tilley explained. But last summer, Tilley moved to LA, and she and Graham started hanging out again.
“We’ve been a little more than friends for a while,” she said. “But finally I admitted it to myself that I liked him more than that.”
She added that she realized that she “would not be happy if he started dating someone else,” and that made it official.
“This is so natural, it’s easy. He’s not some stranger that I don’t know,” Tilley gushed.
