Bachelor Jake Pavelka has a new babe.

He has been seeing Meghan Jones, a wedding planner from Dallas, he tells

The two made their public debut Monday at Dancing With the Stars' 200th episode party in Los Angeles.

"She makes me look really good!" he told Us.

He said a "great friend" introduced them "less than two months ago."

Pavelka, 32, told Us his pal thought he and Jones had "similar personalities."

Though she lives in Dallas and he is in L.A., they haven't been facing the pangs of long distance dating. "Her family actually lives in Orange County," Pavelka explained.

Their favorite way to pass the time?

"Travel!" he told Us, adding that they plan on taking a trip this week.

"We're going to flip a coin in the morning," he told Us. "It's either going to be Hawaii, Australia, Bali or Bangkok. We're just going to get up and go somewhere."

Pavelka famously split from Vienna Girardi earlier this year, prompting an ugly he-said/she-said war of words.
