I grew up in love with New Kids On The Block. Jordan, Danny, Donnie, Joey, and Jon. Now that they are back I realize how much I still love them. I'm grown, so it isn't like that love struck teen kind of thing, but it does bring back a lot of those feelings that I had growing up. Did you have a heart throb growing up?

I'm so much older than you! I started out at 6 years of age, very much in love with Paul Mccartney & davey jones. By the time I hit my teens, I'd have to say that David Cassidy was the ultimate hottest guy around. Check out his old pics and tell me that he wasn't "hot". I can't say I loved his music but it really didn't matter...he was eye candy for sure.

My mom used to tell me stories of how she was in love with Davy Jones. I will admit when I was a kid I would watch The Monkees and I thought they were all really nice looking. Thanks for the comment!

Oh, did I ever!?!?!?!? And you make me feel old, I was an adult with the New Kids! My man was Shaun Cassidy (I wasn't sure if I'd spelled the name right so I checked it, but after all these years I still know how to spell it). When I was younger I had an ENTIRE wall plastered with his pictures. My sister thought it was sick. Oh, but I just love it!!!

I had every wall in my room covered in New Kids On The Block posters. I wanted to start putting them on my ceiling but my parents wouldn't let me. Geez, I don't know why.

If I'd had my own room all the walls covered too! But my sister had her half of the room - which fortunately for me had windows and doors so I actually had more wall-space than she did :)

I had a thing for Joey from NKOTB for awhile when I was in junior high. I have liked a lot of the teen heart throbs over the years though.

I had one of those Joey dolls. It was so cute. I loved it! I kept it even when I moved out on my own but a few years ago my basement was flooded with raw sewage from the city's main backing up. It was horrible. Well, I had that doll packed away in the basement and yeah, it was nasty. I hate to say this but Joey got s**t on.

I always been crazy about R Kelly growing up. I had 4 females females that would always come over my house, and we would play R kelly and watch all his videos that was out at that time. I just couldn't help myself, oh my gosh! He was so adorable and sexy to us, we would even cry when watching him on the TV. Sounds crazy huh? Yeah I know, but that was the old days. I still like his music but I'm NOT insane and crazy like I was then. I'm a changed girl.

You are older than I am, but back in the days I absolutely adored David Cassidy. He was the only one that sung in the Partidge Family and he was gorgeous. He still doesn't look that back these days. lol I also had my walls adorned with photos of Bobby Sherman. He was my other "love" Happy MyLotting! Char

My heart throbs were Taylor and Zac Hanson. I was so obsessed with that band growing up. All over my bedroom walls were pictures of them. I still find them very cute, and still enjoy their music when I hear it.

I loved westlife especially Brian Mcfadden, but now I grown out with that fascination and Mcfadden is not that interesting anymore, especially when he married the Atomic kitten member and separated and married the Australian singer I forgot her name anyway.

For quite awhile it was John Lennon but then it was Peter Noone, AKA Herman of the Mermits! He was on VH-1 not too long ago and he really hasn't changed a whole lot. I thought he was soooo cute...lol! Annie

Haha.. When I was a kid, I used to buy all those teenybopper magazines and get all the pin-ups and centerfolds of my celebrity crushes and post them on my wall! I used to go gaga over Brad Renfro (R.I.P.), Devon Sawa, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and the Backstreet Boys. :)
