These Two Ladies Went On ‘The Bachelor’ For Love And Ended Up Falling For Each Other

At this point, everyone and their mother has heard of The Bachelor and its “formula” for finding one devastatingly attractive person the love of their life. 20 or so women all live in a house together and compete for the love of one man, the couple ends up happily ever after yadda yadda yadda. 

30 year-old Tiffany Scanlon and 27 year-old Megan Marx met on the Australian version of the highly popular dating show earlier this year. While both girls initially were set up to date Bachelor Richie Strahan, they ended up forming an incredibly strong friendship that eventually, turned into something more.

Rumors of their relationship have swirled for quite some time due to social media posts and the amount of time the two were attached at the hip post-show, but after taking Tiffany away for a romantic birthday celebration Megan has officially confirmed their couple status in a truly swoon-worthy post.

I met Tiffany in a very strange situation. Well… we were kind of dating the same guy. And it was filmed and put on TV 😂. From that first cocktail party, it was like this instant calibration between souls, as if we had known each other once before. Friendship ripened into something bolder, trust in a very strange situation was formed, and now every adventure we have rivals the other- and continues to make plans for itself. Yesterday I flew this beautiful woman to The Abrolhos islands for her 30th birthday! I have to admit that I felt so so proud to be with her, my favourite person, celebrating such a momentous occasion on the water- a mutual love of ours. She is so confident in the ocean and in every adventure, as if every new experience is a winning of the lottery somehow; a chance to grow and learn and develop. To Tiffany, experience wins over the worldly acquisition of 'things' every time- and I think this is why she is so open-minded, so accepting of others, so fun and so at ease with letting winds blow her towards a variety of opportunities. She's helped me to disintegrate many of the ideals I've had that were harmful (about relationships, about career and 'stability') and for that I feel set free. Thank you for always asking questions (detective Tiff), for being curious about people, ideologies and the universe; for loving people with such a wholesome love that I don't know if I would ever be able to emulate. It inspires me. Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.

Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.

*cue the awwwws and ugly tears at how sweet that all is*

This confirmation comes after several months of the two posting butterfly inducing photos captioned with “my favourite person” and “my love.”

No matter what your stance is on reality TV or The Bachelor may be, this is perfection and definitely is one of the most undeniably memorable love stories to ever have come from the franchise.

Consider this my formal request that we petition to get a reality series of these two being their lovey, gorgeous, adorable AF selves.

Congrats to Megan and Tiffany! You’re so cute and I for one can’t stand it. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

Let go now
