After officially confirming her relationship with fellow Bachelor Nation member Robert Graham, Becca Tilley is finally able to enjoy some PDA with her beau! And enjoy she did at the launch party for her blog, BeccaTilleyBlog.com, and YouTube channel at the Bachelor Mansion, where the couple was spotted kissing and mingling, on Monday, December 5.
“This is so natural, it’s easy. He’s not some stranger that I don’t know,” Tilley tells Us Weekly of her romance. In fact, the relationship was a while in the making. After their first date — a comedy show in Santa Monica — the commute from Tilley’s home base in San Diego and Graham’s in L.A. came between them. “Things just didn’t really happen,” she explains, despite telling her mom that first night that the two had “the best time” and she would “totally go out with him again.”
After the Louisiana native moved to L.A. full time, her relationship with Graham was able to pick up some speed this past summer thanks to their mutual social circle. “We’ve been a little more than friends for a while,” Tilley dishes. “But finally I admitted it to myself that I liked him more than that.”
The final push into official boyfriend territory came when Tilley realized that she “would not be happy if he started dating someone else.” So, she did what any girl would do and locked it down. “He met all of my family [Sunday] night, except for my brother,” she gushes. “Everyone loved him.”
Sweetening the deal even further, Tilley admits, “He’s not bad to look at!”
