Lolo Jones has yet to find love. Because of her unique situation, there seem to be more people interested in Jones’ personal life than there are those who are wondering what her chances are of winning a gold medal in London. Since she admitted she is a virgin, everyone is adamant about recommending potential partners for Lolo and finding out how she has managed to hold out for so long. The reason, she says, is that she has yet to find the man of her dreams.
“That’s one of the main reasons, because literally there are so many people who aren’t willing to wait for their future spouse,” Jones told Access Hollywood earlier this week. “They want to have sex now, they want to hook up. That’s their life. My life is something else.
“I’ve complained about this to all my friends. ‘When am I going to finally meet the man of my dreams, my husband, and experience, you know?’ Please, end this drought.”
It’s a sick and twisted world out there. Finding prince charming is no easy task in the year 2012. Jones, who loves to mess around as we have seen with her jokes about Tim Tebow, added that she has “the FBI working on some potential soul mates.”
Nick Mangold tried to use this hilarious t-shirt to set Lolo and Tebow up, but so far it hasn’t worked out. She has said in the past that remaining a virgin is harder than training for the Olympics, so hopefully when the Games are over Mr. Right comes marching along.
Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh finished in a dead heat (picture here) for the final Olympic qualifying spot in the 100 meters last weekend and may do a run-off to break the tie. Photo finishes are determined by the placement of the sternum, so that’s why she made the joke.
For someone who is a world-class athlete and who seems to have everything going for her, Lolo Jones sure has the self-deprecating humor act down. If nothing else, maybe that can help her score a date with Tim Tebow.
Now that the entire world knows Lolo Jones is a virgin, she can’t expect to ever appear on a talk show without being asked about her personal life. Jones’ virginity is a topic that everyone seems to enjoy discussing, although she is not quite the most famous virgin in America. That title, as we know, belongs to Tim Tebow. Jones has already made a few funny jokes about the suggestion that she should date Tebow, and she brought it up again when discussing her personal life on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno Monday night.
“I did E-Harmony and it didn’t work out,” Jones said. “I’ve tried it all. Right now I’m just seriously focused on the Olympics. I’m pretty sure I’m just going to invite Tim Tebow to church. It’s a 100% way to not get rejected. I’m totally just going to invite him to go to church.”
We know Nick Mangold certainly wants to see it happen as he showed us when he debuted this t-shirt. The truth of the matter is Jones is a very attractive young woman who is in tremendous shape and has a seemingly great personality. When she’s ready to find a date, she’ll have plenty of guys to choose from. Unless Tebow really does have a secret girlfriend, it sounds like she’s willing to keep him in mind.
Since Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones admitted she is still a virgin a little over a week ago, the entire sports world has been trying to get her together with Tim Tebow. In the eyes of many fans and most of his Jets teammates, Tebow makes perfect sense for the 29-year-old. As you can see from the photo above that ESPNNewYork.com’s Jane McManus shared on Twitter Thursday, Nick Mangold has decided to put on the full-court press and try to play Cupid.
Maybe we have our answer to why Tim Tebow has apparently turned down so many women eager to be with him. Olympian Lolo Jones, who has joked about the possibility of dating her fellow virgin, told Jets center Nick Mangold that she heard the quarterback has a secret girlfriend.
Things started when Mangold tried playing matchmaker between the two athletes. He tweeted the following message on Tuesday:
Will we get to the bottom of this secret girlfriend talk? Who knows. But I’m sure after Lolo’s tweet blows up the internet, she’ll be more inclined to keep future conversations about Tebow more private.
Ever since Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones openly discussed her virginity, people have been suggesting that she date Tim Tebow. Why? Because people are immature, and naturally they think that any two virgins who are popular athletes and happen to be above the age of 24 would be perfect for each other. That’s the way the world works.
Rather than pretend she has not heard the suggestions over the past few days that she should get together with Tebow, Jones decided to have a sense of humor about it on Thursday afternoon.
Olympian Lolo Jones is one of the best hurdlers in the world. She’s athletic, she’s attractive, she’s fit … and as she recently stated on Twitter, she’s a virgin.
Jones, who has won gold medals at the World Indoor Championships twice, but is still searching for her first Olympic gold medal, openly discussed her virginity on HBO’s “Real Sports,” in an episode that airs on Tuesday night.
“It’s just something, a gift I want to give to my husband,” she told Mary Carillo. “But please understand: This journey has been hard. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college.
“I’ve been tempted. I’ve had guys tell me ‘If you have sex it will help you run faster.’ I was like ‘I do want this gold medal, but not yet. I do want to be married.'”
Jones says she’s turned to Twitter to fulfill her dating life, which is always a risky proposition.
“I’m waiting for the day where somebody totally tricks me with their Twitter picture … they’re using like an Abercrombie model, I show up on the date and it’s like somebody from ‘The Biggest Loser.'”
Yes, that means if you follow Lolo on Twitter (@lolojones), you might actually have a chance to date her.
