Ever since Jason Mesnick dumped fiancée Melissa Rycroft for runner up Molly Malaney in The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special, it hasn't been an easy ride for Molly and Jason. Many are still convinced that love wouldn't last for the single dad and the department store buyer. And while a long distance relationship is difficult enough to sustain (Jason resides in Seattle and Molly lives in Milwaukee), it's even harder to deal with constant public scrutiny.

But it seems that luck is on their side. As reported previously, the people at AirTran Airways are backing up The Bachelor couple by giving free airline tickets to Molly for her to visit Jason in his hometown of Seattle. And amidst rumors that they are about to part ways due to some turbulence in their relationship, Jason and Molly's romance remains stronger than ever.

"Things are really starting to calm down for us, from a public perspective, which is something we have been waiting for," Molly wrote on Jason's Place, Jason's new website for single parents. "Spending weekends with each other's families is giving us a sense of normalcy, and we are at the point where we can solely focus on each other and our relationship. Things are really going well for us, and I can't wait to see him next!"

Just like Molly, Jason is out to prove the public wrong by constantly updating his website with blogs and photos of him and Molly.

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend," Jason wrote on Friday. "The bad news is Ty is with his mom for the weekend, so I'll be missing him. The great news is Moll is coming in town today. My mom and I are going to take her to try sushi for the first time...then Saturday I'm taking her wine tasting with some good friends of mine. The rest of the weekend is all about relaxation. I am so excited to see her, it's been a week and a half since we were last together. I will definitely get some pics taken this weekend."
