We've spent too much time watching women compete for (usually undeserving) men's attention on The Bachelor, only to see the winning couple break up shortly after filming. But now, there's finally a love story from The Bachelor that we can actually get behind.

Megan Marx and Tiffany James were both contestants from this year's Australian version of the show, dating and competing for the same man. However, in an adorable twist, the two ended up falling in love – with each other, Mashable reports.

Marx wrote on Instagram that they started out as friends who were "dating the same guy," and that chemistry between the two was there from the beginning. "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."

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.

The pair have been posting adorable photos on Instagram for months, referring to each other as "my favorite person" and "my darling." Glad to see there's finally a Bachelor couple to root for.
