Most Eligible Dallas star Tara Harper has been keeping busy since the show's finale, working hard to promote her charity, Paws In the City. But outside of her charitable work, she's got some new excitement in her personal life — a promising new romance with an old flame named John, to whom Tara has already been engaged!

"He had cared about me through the whole process," Tara told Wetpaint Entertainment. "One day we were talking and just thought, let's try and do this again." 

Viewers know that Tara has had a number of engagement in the past, but she says she always had a special spark with John — and that the dynamic has totally changed since they were first together. "It's night and day different," Tara said. "It used to be really combative — I love you, I love you, I hate you, I hate you — and now it's so calm! We understand each other better now — it's like a totally different relationship. It feels like the right timing, now."

And the Southern belle says that she's well-matched for a guy like John. "He has a construction company," she revealed," so he's the perfect type of guy. He knows exactly what kind of wine to pick and he looks great in a tuxedo, but he can also fix your kitchen sink with his bare hands."

That doesn't mean that they'll be rushing into an engagement anytime soon, however. "The last time, we got engaged really quickly," Tara said. "This time, we're getting to know each other better, and taking things slower."

After a string of rough dates featured on the show, we're thrilled to hear that Tara's found love with a good guy. Congrats!
