+ Signs You're Too Old To Be Obsessed With The BSB But Are Obsessed With Them Anyway +
I'm supposed to be a mature twentysomething graduate student, but I have a deep dark secret: I'm a closet BSB fan. Unfortunately, I am guilty of every item in this long list:
1. You and your friends made up a BSB drinking game, and you are all old enough to buy the beer.
2. In defense of your obsession, you have said on more than one occasion, "Hey, those guys are all my age!"
3. If a friend your age finds out you have a "thing" for Nick Carter, they either laugh at you or ask blankly, "Who the hell is Nick Carter?"
4. BSB CDs, videos, magazines, etc. are right up there with tampons and Midol on your Most Mortifying Purchases list.
5. You have never been to a concert because not only have the BSB never come to your home state, but even if they did, you couldn't find anyone to go with you (your friends at home are all non-fans) unless you wanted to chaperone your twelve-year-old niece.
6. And you would do it gladly, if it meant seeing the BSB.
7. When one of your non-fan friends says she can't tell the difference between BSB and *N Sync, you look at her as though she has uttered some kind of sacrilege. Then you proceed to list all the ways in which the BSB SO don't sound like *N Sync.
8. Your parents thought you'd outgrow your obsession, and seeing how you haven't, they are starting to worry about you.
9. If you hear the words, "aren't you getting a little old for this?" one more time, you will inflict severe bodily harm on whoever says them.
10. You know more about Nick Carter than you do about some guys you've dated.
11. Your parents know more about Nick Carter than they do about some guys you've dated.
12. When your brother says he has a friend who looks sort of like Nick, the first words out of your mouth are, "Is he single?"
13. You roommate bitches at you for tying up the phone line because you spend way too much time surfing BSB sites on the Net.
14. You read fan fictions and go out of your way to make sure nobody ever finds out.
15. You write fan fictions and post them on your site, which nobody knows you run (and you plan to keep it that way).
16. You have created a separate directory on your hard drive where you keep your pictures, because you have so many of them.
17. You have a special space on your wall where you put your favorite pictures, and you take them all down anytime you think anyone but immediate family will be in your room.
18. You have to change your settings every time you take your laptop computer to a public place, because you don't want anyone to see your Nick wallpaper.
19. You spent forty-five minutes creating that wallpaper.
20. You used to go for older men because of their maturity, but one look at Nick and you are now espousing the virtues of younger men.
21. You suddenly find the ability to burp on command charming.
22. You know it's stupid, but you still feel vaguely depressed when you see Willa's video on TRL.
23. You know it's stupid, yet you cheer when you find out Nick is single again.
24. You and Nick were married in a virtual wedding ceremony.
25. You have a separate aol screen name that you use for all your BSB e-mail, chat rooms, mailing lists, whatever. (email@example.com).
26. When your mother buys you a BSB calendar as a gag gift, you are secretly thrilled.
27. You cut and save every picture, magazine article, clipping, whatever you can get your hands on, and keep them in a photo album devoted exclusively to the BSB.
28. You hide this album under your bed.
29. You go to backstreet.net on a regular basis to find out about TV appearances, tour dates, etc.
30. You tape every TV appearance, even if it's like a two-minute clip.
31. You rush home from class hoping you'll get back in time to catch the end of TRL, so you can watch whatever BSB video is currently at #1.
32. You have actually voted for at least one BSB video on TRL.
33. You have ever had a dream (as in while you're asleep, not a daydream) about one or more BSBs.
34. You were stoked to find all these "mature fan" sites on the Net, because now you know you're not the only one!
35. You read lists like this one.
36. You make lists like this one.

Alright. I have been absolutely infatuated with AJ McLean since the summer of 1997. Yeah, he's got that hard appearance, but what really drew me in, was his emotional core. I became attracted to him while watching the "All Access" video. It was when I realized just how natural and real all these guys are, that I focused all of that attention on AJ because he was (and still is) exactly who he wanted (and wants) to be. He doesn't put up an image, and that's cool. I admire him for that. I respect the fact that even though he's in the public eye, he doesn't pretend. If he's sick, he doesn't attend an interview. So, his health must mean more to him than making millions of dollars. AJ just seems like he would be a fun person to hang out with, and that's the most important thing. I'm not going to say that I love him, because that isn't true. I, personally, have no idea who he is, but I know that I'd like to get to know him.
