I don't usually care too much about the love lives of teen stars-I'd like to think I'm a bit beyond my BOP and Tiger Beat years-but 16-year-old Miley Cyrus is an exception. Something about her fascinates me, and her boyfriend Justin Gaston, 20, is adorable. But their relationship got me thinking about the kinds of guys I date.
Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, introduced Justin to his daughter after working with him on the show Nashville Star. Of the model and aspiring country singer, the star dad told Access Hollywood: "He actually reminds me a lot of myself when I was 20 years old and I was living and searching for the dream."
My own mom always comments on how much my boyfriend reminds her of my father. Their super laid-back attitudes, their ability to strike up conversation with anyone, their love of useless trivia, their very slow deliberate way of doing things…the similarities are endless.
What are the little things you look for in a man?
What about you? Do you, like Miley and me, tend to date guys who are just like your dad? Or does your choice in men go the opposite direction? Tell me about it below!
Do you share my fascination with Miley's life? What else do you want to know about it? I'm dying to know how much of her relationship she shares with her dad. It seems like they're soclose! If you could ask her anything in the world, what would it be? Ask it here!
