Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alaina were plagued by rumors that they were dating while they were on American Idol. While they remain “just friends,” it seems that Lauren has, indeed, found love with a “regular” guy.


While she won’t share his name, as he doesn’t like attention, she did divulge that he is a high school senior, like her. According to The Boot, Lauren said he’s a normal guy, respectful to adults, and is not a troublemaker. She’s happy to have found someone special, as her schedule isn’t exactly that of a normal teen.


“It’s hard when you’re in this business, to find people who accept this life,” Lauren told The Boot. “Our schedules make it so we’re always gone working, and then when we’re home, our family, everyone, wants to see us.”


Lauren thinks she found a keeper, saying, “My boyfriend is really great. I’ve been pretty lucky with this new guy.”


The gorgeous country singer, who is currently working on her sophomore album, feels so fortunate, she took to Twitter to share her thoughts on love with her young followers. As she put it, “I tweeted all the little girls and said, ‘You need to find the boyfriend that your friends are jealous of. Like that your friends want to find.’” Her message is that every girl deserves a guy who respects them, and they should never settle for anything less. In fact, Lauren admits she learned the hard way, as her first boyfriend treated her “like dirt.”

 It definitely sounds like Lauren hasn’t settled! Now, we just need to find out who this amazing mystery man is!
