Jesse McCartney seeks companion on JDate

Gone are the days when joining an online dating site has an desperate social stigma. But what about when you're a hot, young celebrity! 20-year-old Jesse McCartney has girls everywhere drooling over him, so why is he searching for a date on the internet? "One of my best buddies is a conservative Jew and his sister had met her boyfriend on JDate," he explains. Okay, but didn't anyone tell him the "J" stood for Jewish? "There are a lot of different people of all religious backgrounds on that site. My screen name is jbagel07." Right, but what happens when prospective suitors recognize him? "A lot of people see the pictures of me and say, 'Who are you? Why are you pretending to be Jesse McCartney?' And I say, 'It's me - I just decided to meet somebody online.' And they're still like, 'Why are you doing it?' I have to admit I have a pretty cheesy profile - I just had fun with it." After his breakup with Katie Cassidy (yes, David's daughter) we encourage him to get back on the market-online with a bagel or otherwise! [In Touch]
