Are you the ideal girl for the Backstreet Boys?
You know what qualities you look for in a guy, but we bet you don't know what the Backstreet Boys look for in a girl.........well maybe you have an idea.....
If we were to ask Boppers to describe their perfect guy (or girl) they'd probably whip out a list of crush-worthy qualifications. After all, who doesn't have a picture of the perfect mate in mind? Well, when BOP recently hung out with the Florida-based Backstreet Boys, the quintet behind "We've Got It Goin' On" and "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)" from their 1996 self-title debut album, we found out what it takes for Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson to totally go gaga over a girl.
For Howie, it's all about the girl's vibe. He prefers hanging out with a positive Patty rather than a negative Nellie. "My idea of a perfect girl," the 23 year old says, "is someone who is always looking at things in a positive way, not in a negative way, and who knows what she wants in life and knows how to go about getting it."
A.J., who stresses, "I'm not a picky kind of guy, really," explains that his ideal girl "just has to be well-rounded, have a big heart and a good sense of humour." But this doesn't mean he's looking for a girl who is all laughs and giggles. "She has to have a serious side," the 20 year old says. In other words, he elaborates, "just someone you can be yourself around and not have to be something that you're not."
All right boys, all this stuff sounds good. But what about looks? you would think that with an infinite female fan to choose from, the Backstreet Boys would go for the perfect, Barbie-looking type. Right? Wrong. Looks are not a top priority, at least not for Nick. "There are models that I think are fine," the 18 year old cutie admits. But what he wants, he says, is "somebody who has a good heart and...a great personality." Take notes girls! It gets better.
As for Brian, the doorway to B-Rok's heart is through the eyes. "What I look for in a girl is their eyes," the 23 year old reveals. "Eyes are very appealing to me. I don't really have a specific [perfect girl ideal]. I like redheads, blondes or brunettes, somebody who is interested in a career for themselves and in other goals on life and someone who can treat me like a normal person."
There is only one problem for these soulmate-seeking babes: With their ultra-busy schedule, the Backstreet Boys are never in one place long enough to get serious about one girl. "Right now, I'm just so busy that it's virtually impossible," Kevin explains. But even if it is hard to meet that special someone right now, the 24 year old says he "definitly" plans to fall in love and tie the knot in the future. "I want a family," he says "I love kids. I can't wait to have a family."
There you have it. Despite their huge popularity, the Backstreet Boys aren't looking for Wonder Woman for a girlfriend. They simply want to find someone positive to hang out with, a girl who has goals of her pwn and who will love them as they are. Any takers?
