When it comes to The Bachelor, we’ve gotten used to disappointment, but former contestants Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon are trying to turn the stigma around. While vying for the final rose in Australia’s version of the popular TV show, they fell in love with each other.
Cue the communal “awwwwwwww.”
Marx described their love story as a “very strange situation” in a recent Instagram post that will literally make you melt.
“Well… we were kind of dating the same guy. And it was filmed and put on TV,” she wrote. “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. ”
She continued by wishing Scanlon a happy birthday in the most adorable way possible. “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.”
Who else needs some damn tissues?
Considering the two met during the show’s latest season, the relationship is relatively new, but they’ve still managed to post an endless stream of adorable photos on social media. And because we’re the sappiest saps, we’ve collected a few for your viewing pleasure.
