The time has come to take a walk down the fungal-infested footpath that is memory lane, back to a glorious time when Bachelor Pad 3 was still in our lives. RIP, old friend! All kinds of beautiful relationships blossomed on The Pad, but our favorite couple on BP3 was most definitely Kalon McMahon and Lindzi Cox.

These two were an unlikely pair — you know, because Kalon seemed kinda 50 shades of questionable on Bachelorette and Lindzi is basically the sweetest thing ever — but for whatever reason they fell for each other during their stint on TV, and their relationship was the tops. While it lasted, that is. Sadly, Kalon and Lindzi just weren't meant to be because she lives in Washington with her horses and he lives in Texas with his helicopter. Alas, long distance just wasn't doing it for them.

Kindzi broke up in January 2013 after four months of dating, and Lindzi exclusively told Wetpaint Entertainment that she was willing to "go the extra mile," but that Kalon wasn't in a position to meet her halfway. We'll give you a moment to wipe away those tears and update your feelings blog. How dare he give up on their love?

Anyway, the good news is that both Kalon and Lindzi are doing amazingly well in the wake of their breakup. Kalon is living it up in Houston and working hard as the chairman of super-bro fitness company, Surfset Texas, which champions exercise in the form of chilling out on a surfboard….sans actual waves. According to his company bio, Kalon instructs weekly classes "toning his core in his Lulu capris," which sounds semi horrifying and super attractive.

And speaking of attractive, have you seen K’s new girlfriend, Sam Kalil? Because girlfriend is a fitness instructor as well, and her body is bangin! If you want to have a cute little moment on the McMahonsion front, check out their meet-cute story here.

Meanwhile, Lindzi is shacked up in Bellevue, where she hangs out with her pet bunny, rides horses, and attends Bar Fitness classes with none other than The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock. As far as this gal's love life goes, she appears to be single and ready to mingle — presumably with someone who doesn't wear loafers like he was born in ‘em.

Considering that neither Kalon nor Lindzi is locked down, we're hoping they'll find their way back to each other in the not too distant future. Kindzi forever! Shoot, KINDZI FOR PRESIDENT, if we're honest.
