Love, American Idol Style

By Lisa Daily

It seems the entire country has been struck with American Idol mania. Ruben's Alabama fashion statement has caused a 205 frenzy. Clay has made the "Opie" look hot (something even the talented Ron Howard couldn't pull off. ) And Kimberly has proven once and for all (and specifically for Simon) that there is more than one kind of beautiful.

As for the judges and Ryan Seacrest, well, the country is completely divided on them. Which got me thinking -- Does the American Idol judge we like the most hold some clue as to the kind of people we're most attracted to? I asked around, and the favorite judge VS. potential mate answers were surprisingly accurate.

Below is the Love Life Idol-ometer:

Crazy about Simon?
Simon draws the strongest reactions all around - we either love him or we hate him. (Personally, I adore him, but that's me.) What does a preference for Simon say about the kind of guy or girl that makes your toes curl? You want someone who doesn't waste words. Someone who doesn't back down to popular opinion but will admit when he's wrong. A person who's confident, and self-assured (or arrogant as hell, depending on your take.) You're also looking for someone who is brutally honest, because you always like to know exactly where you stand. And you don't mind that he's a bit stingy with the compliments because on the rare occasion that he says something nice, you know he really means it.

Straight up for Paula Abdul?
Paula is the sunshine girl who doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. If Paula's your favorite judge, you want to be with someone who lives by the "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" code. The great thing about this person is that they'll always support you, no matter how badly you screw things up. The bad thing about this kind of person is that you'll never really know what they're thinking because they're too busy trying not to rock the boat. The other drawback? If there are problems in the relationship, you probably won't know it until it's all over.

Randy Happy?
Randy is great all-around guy. If Randy's your dawg, you prefer a mate who will give it to you straight, but soften the blow with kindness. (Which means he'd take you to dinner before he dumped you.) This is a person who's honest without being nasty, but always on the level. This is also a person who is generally happy and easy-going, with a strong sense of personal style and a great sense of humor.

Pining for Ryan?
You don't mind two-hour discussions on the variances of haircare products. If you like Ryan, you may be most attracted to arm candy. He's nice, he looks good in a suit, he's probably a fun party date. Enough said. And, maybe, you don't mind dating someone who's prettier than you are.
