The ball dropped last night to ring in the year 2014, and guess what — Selena Gomez didn’t even a boyfriend to kiss. The singer has been single long enough, and now that it’s a new year, we think she deserves a new man. So who should be the lucky guy?
Selena Gomez, your last pseudo-reunion with Justin Bieber was almost half a year ago — isn’t it time to get back on that horse? We say yes, but we’re not just going to throw you into the dating pool bound and blindfolded — instead we’ve picked out nine totally hot, totally eligible bachelors for you to choose from.
Selena Gomez: Who Should She Date Next?
We’re also prepared to ruin friendships to help Selena find new love, so keep that in mind when you read this list.
Let’s be honest — Kendall Jenner just doesn’t feel right for this guy. He needs a girl — a musician — who can be on his level. And though this would definitely inspire an entire Taylor Swift album, it would be pretty amazing to see two of the biggest young stars in music together.
Scott’s abs. That’s why Selena should date him.
When Miley Cyrus turned into an edgy exhibitionist, she and Liam clearly started to drift apart. We think he’s looking for that good girl who has a slight wild side… That’s where Selena could come in.
Disney stars unite!
Rumors flew in 2012 that Niall and Selena were a potential new couple, but it never came to fruition, reportedly because Niall didn’t want to step on Justin Bieber’s toes. But that was a long time ago, and Justin should no longer be anyone‘s concern when it comes to dating Selena. Plus, we still think they would look perfect together.
Things didn’t work out between Nathan and Ariana Grande, but maybe he just needs a pop singer who sounds less like Mariah Carey?
If Selena doesn’t want Liam, she could always try things out with the other star of The Hunger Games. Bonus: they’re basically the same height.
We think it’s about time that the future of pop music and the future of country music team up…
We figured we had to include one athlete on this list, so let us introduce you to Taylor. Taylor is 22 years old, and he’s a budding hockey star for the Edmonton Oilers. Take it from Elisha Cuthbert and Carrie Underwood, Selena, hockey players know how to treat a woman. Plus, how huge of a diss to Justin would it be if Selena went from dating a guy who likes hockey to dating an actual hockey player?
So HollywoodLifers, do you agree that these guys could be good for Selena? Let us know or tell us who YOU think Selena should date in 2014!
