J.J. Watt Is Struggling to Find a Girlfriend: "I'm Trying, I'm Just Unsuccessful"

The guy you see pictured above is evidently having some trouble with the ladies.

J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans claims that it isn't due to a lack of trying. It's just that a combination of his insanely busy schedule and his status as a rich and famous NFL star have made it extremely difficult for him to find someone he deems worthy of a long-term relationship.

"People [I know] think that I've never dated before, or whatever," Watt says. "But I'm trying. I'm trying. I'm just unsuccessful. My schedule's so crazy and life's so busy, it just hasn't worked."

"You don't know who wants you for you, who wants you for the money, who wants you for the fame. You have no idea. And how would you know? There's no way. So that's why you try and rely on family and friends. And then you talk about celebrities with other celebrities . . . someone who's in a similar situation, so you know that they already have money and fame.

"But you can't think about love on paper like that. If you're thinking like that -- 'Does this person want me for me?' -- then you're gonna have a hell of a hard time falling in love, 'cause you're constantly thinking about what they look like on paper. Trust me, it's a lot more difficult than I wish it was -- but I'm sure hoping to find the right one."

Watt may have yet to find that special someone. But if he's finding himself to be a bit lonely from time to time, we have an idea of who he might holler at to (temporarily) fill that void in his life.
