Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones is more than just another pretty brown face with light eyes. She’s a girl with substance and standards. Jones has made headlines recently for stating she’s waiting for marriage before she jumps in between the sheets. She’s been quoted saying that maintaining her virginity is a feat tougher than training for the Olympics.
“It’s just a gift I want to give my husband. But please understand this journey has been hard. There’s virgins out there and I want to let them know that it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than graduating from college has been to stay a virgin before marriage. I’ve been tempted, I’ve had plenty of opportunities.”
There’s not enough role models like Lolo in the mainstream media. I am so glad someone with her morals is getting major attention. However, I’d love to see someone with her strong will dating in Hollywood. I believe that it would show young girls out there looking for someone to emulate, that you don’t have to be raunchy, overtly sexy or even suggestive towards the opposite sex to be appealing. So I’ve come up with a list of boyfriends for the virgin athlete to take her pick from.

10 Starter Boyfriends For Lolo Jones Plus A Bonus Boyfriend!
Boyfriends For Lolo Jones
Drake's sensitivity is just what the inexperienced Lolo needs. Drake is just sensitive enough to nurture her emotions, while partially obsessing over her. Dudes with slight obsessions make attentive boyfriends.
2. Kanye West
Kanye may be "kourting" Kim, but we know she doesn't have what it takes to go the distance. Kanye loves HARD and what's better than a starter boyfriend that's not afraid to love fully? Plus he could show her how to dress. Win, win.
Common's loyal, handsome and intelligent--three great qualities to start off a healthy dating life. As a busy athlete, Lolo could use a boyfriend that needs minimal maintenance. He's also well-trained in dating world-class athletes, *ahem* Serena Williams.
4. Ashton Kutcher
Sexy star Ashston Kutcher may have ended a marriage by way of gallivanting with other young women--including Rihanna--but his smoldering good looks may just be enough to redeem him. Plus, every good girl loves a bad boy!
5. Usain Bolt
Yet another serious athlete. Lolo and Usain's dedication to fitness could be their common ground, allowing them a foundation to build a relationship on. Plus the star athlete is newly single, so Lolo needs to mingle!
6. Blake Griffin
Lolo is that girl next door, she could use an all-around nice guy like Griffin that you usually don't find in basketball. These two together would just be so sweet.
7. Ryan Gosling
Devastatingly handsome Ryan Gosling would help Lolo's climbing star shoot straight to the top.
8. Trey Songz
There's nothing like having the inventor of sex teach a virgin a thing or two. Seriously sexy Songz could also learn from Lolo a little thing called sexual restraint. They'd be a great balance.
9. Reggie Bush
Another Kim K "kast-off" fits Lolo perfectly. The two athletes could connect on all things sports.
10. Kevin Hart
Funnyman Kevin Hart may not be the most wholesome, but he is the funniest. Every woman loves to laugh, so he's already got a leg up on the competition.
11. Honorary Boyfriend--Christian Grey of "50 Shades Of Grey"
If you've ever read this book, then you'd know that Christian Grey is every woman's fantasy boyfriend. He'd make the perfect man for Lolo!
