    Someone told me I was a "boy next door". What exactly does that mean? I mean, I've heard the phrase before, but never really understood it...

    Basically almost every girl's crush in the neighborhood, but too dear to everyone to seduce.

    When he falls for someone, the rest will ooh and aah. icon_lol.gif

    Great definition and I agree... I think of a "boy next door" (since I was called that several times) is someone who doesn't have an agenda.. friendly, kind, etc.

    When I was called that, I wasn't sure how to take it, now I just roll my eyes. I'm sure it isn't a bad thing.
