We were hoping for this day. And with news that Damian McGinty’s Glee Season 3 stint has been indefinitely extended (pause for “happy dance”), it seemed even more likely his Rory Flanagan character would get a lady love of his own.

And then, this: “At the end of the Christmas episode” — that’s the one that airs next Tuesday, December 13 — “there’s a little hint that he might have a girlfriend on Valentine’s day,” reveals Damian to Billboard.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Forget the holidays and focus on the fact that our timid young foreign exchange student is finally getting his mack on! (Brittany didn’t count because, frankly, she just made him her b*tch for a week.)

Though Damian, himself, has no preference — “All the girls in Glee are really cute,” he told us last month when we brought up the prospect of an on-screen romance — we had a few ideas that we asked YOU to weigh in on.

His fellow Glee Project contestant Lindsay Pearce’s Harmony got the majority of the vote, last we checked, but seeing as Episode 8, “Hold On to Sixteen,” is still slated to be her last... we’re thinkin, slim chance.

So have you changed your mind since? Who would be a great on-screen mate for Rory?
