In college, I studying abroad a lot so my objects of affection were equally bizzare. My older Ecuadorian host-brother comes to mind. He was in his late 30's, balding at an alarming pace, and still living at home but we'd watch Spanish MTV together like it was nobody's business. Technically we never kissed (or talked! I sucked at Spanish!) but we were fluent in the language of love.
Perhaps my unique taste is why I had so many romantic missteps in my life. If you've read my book, you're well aware of what I'm talking about; my lack of gaydar presented a problem on a number of occasions, the called off wedding (neat), and of course the whole mixing business with pleasure incident of 2007. The client I was scandalously soliciting? seeing? entertaining? turned out to be Danny, making the situation significantly less slutty but still. My coming of age romantic endeavors were not pretty.
Now that I'm married, it doesn't mean that my romances have to end.
"Actually that's exactly what it means says." says Danny as he reads this over my shoulder.
"Let me be clear" (said in an Obama voice) I still love John Krasinski, Jay (as in "Z"), and Adam Brody but the following hotties have been catching my eye this holiday season. Allow me to introduce you;
Nick Lachey - The return of the Sing-Off has not only reminded me how much I love that show but why Jess Simpson in her hay day, a time when she could have anyone, would pick Nick. He's cute, witty, flirty, and can sing. He's getting me all hot and bothered......wait for it......98 Degrees to be exact!
Chris Messina - He's been a small, yet constant, fixture in the romantic comedy scene for years now, but his role in The Mindy Project, specifically this dance number, is why earlier this week when I found myself watching this 40 minute YouTube interview on my Ipad at 2'o clock in the morning. Sure, I was stoned, (ha! kidding!) but it was incredibly enthralling nonetheless.
Jonah Hill - See what I mean- I'm sure a lot of you are all "huh" right now. But what's not to love? He's talented, he's quite dapper these days, and above all, he's HILL-arious.......(Nailed it!)
Alright, level with me. Has my taste evolved into something more mainstream? Are these conventional choices or am I still romantically retarded? Please let me know in the comments section at your earliest convenience.
