Becca Tilley has revealed whether she's still a virgin now that she's dating Robert Graham.
The two-time The Bachelor bachelorette, 28, confirmed in early December she's in a relationship with Graham, 33, and they've been going steady ever since.
Since Tilley may have finally found love with a man she previously described as "amazing" and "patient," it wouldn't be a huge shock to discover the couple had sex. However, she disclosed to Us Weekly that she is indeed saving herself for marriage and Graham has been nothing but supportive.
"He is very respectful in every aspect of our relationship, so you know, that's something I was obviously very vocal about on the show," the chiropractic assistant told Us.
"We've talked about it," Graham chimed in. "It was an open discussion, so there was an understanding.
Each individual later had a second stint on reality TV, with Tilley finishing fifth on Ben Higgins' The Bachelor season and Graham appearing on Season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise, during which the advertising entrepreneur dated Sarah Herron.
"She just comes right out the gate, lets everyone know," Tilley said.
"No one has to guess. I think people make a big deal about people being overly sexual or whatever, so I think it's important to bring both aspects of it, to show there are people on both sides of it who are normal and not sitting in a room by themselves."
"Right," Graham added, "not a complete and total freak."
Although Tilley and Graham are not having sex, their romance still seems very intimate and strong.
"He's very romantic. He's so good. It stresses me out a little bit because I'm like, 'What do I do now?'" Tilley confessed to the magazine, explaining that being in a relationship is a learning process.
And Graham was quick to gush about his girlfriend in return, saying, "I love Becca's smile. I love her personality. Her family's actually pretty incredible. I like her family a lot. She's just a genuine person, which is pretty rare."
Tilley and Graham have been friends for a while, but based on Tilley's Instagram, it seems their dynamic progressed in a romantic direction about six months ago.
