Today, Melissa Rycroft got engaged over the weekend to her new beau Tye. After a very public breakup with Jason melissaMesnick, she found  love with an old friend.  Whose next? Jason and Molly?

E Online Reports:

Barely four months after enduring a nationally televised breakup with indecisive Bachelor Jason Mesnick, Rycroft is engaged to fellow Texan Tye Strickland, People reports.

Strickland popped the question Friday at White’s Chapel in Southlake, Texas, after which the happy couple celebrated with his and Rycroft’s parents—who were apparently onto something when they were reluctant to meet Jason last year—at a nearby restaurant.

And it turns out Strickland was never too far from Rycroft’s side throughout. “We’ve been really good friends, but the timing was never right,” she told Us Weekly of Strickland, who she started dating not long after Mesnick broke off their engagement. “With all this going on, he’s my support system. It’s funny how things happen.”

Friendship is always the best foundation for a lasting relationship. Congrats to the happy couple.
