Casey wants to date women that love him for him – and not just because he was on a TV show.
Out with the old and in with the new? Not so much the credo for American Idol’s season 10 third place contestant Casey James. In fact, the luscious-locked guitar player from Cool, Texas feels safer dating his exes now that he’s found fame (and maybe fortune) as a TV star!
“I have some special girls that I have known in the past I think about leaning toward, revisiting — something along those lines — just because they know who I am and knew me before this,” Casey, 28, told Hollywood Life.com June 17 at the Idol summer tour kickoff press conference in LA, explaining how his newfound fame has changed his outlook on dating. “It’s just a different thing, you have to worry about ulterior motives, you never know — but right now, I am so busy that it doesn’t even compute or matter.”
We don’t want to dash ALL your hopes, so we’ll tell you this – despite being gun-shy of dating new women, Casey hasn’t entirely given up on love – he’s just looking for the right gal.
“Finding somebody to spend the rest of my life with is a goal of mine,” he said. “It’s not one you necessarily pursue, but you kind of just hope for the best. I’ll figure that all out by the way things go.”
Good luck, Casey. And good luck to all the ladies that love you out there, too. May the best woman win!
