Fans of Jersey Shore know that The Situation has had an adorable on-again, off-again relationship with Seaside local Paula. The pair have been hooking up ever since The Sitch first came to the Shore house, and he readily admits that she is his favorite smush partner. However, now that the cast is maturing and The Situation is committed to sobriety, maybe he is ready to settle down with Paula?

According to one fan in Seaside Heights, Mike is looking to make things official.

“I just saw The Situation ask Paula to officially be his girlfriend,” a fan tweeted earlier this week. According to the fan, she heard Mike say this to Paula while the cast was eating at Rivoli’s.

There’s no word on what Paula’s response was, but just the fact that Mike is ready to settle down with her speaks volumes of his own personal growth. The reality star has only had short-lived romances with women ever since he appeared on the show. (His most recently reported “fling” was with a model back in April.) Before that, Mike has admitted that he hasn’t had many long-term relationships.

Could Paula really be The One for Mike?
