In a crowd full of dude-bros, bad-boys, geeks, jocks, and punks, the boy next door tends to end up overlooked. He is unassuming in appearance and behavior. Introverted, quiet, and in some cases, extremely shy. Most would probably just describe him as 'your typical boy'. On the surface, no one extraordinary. Just a minor character in the cast of your life.

Only, when you look closer, he's so much more. His unassuming nature has made it so that his incredible talents are generally unknown to his peers. In reality, he's brilliant, contemplative, and has some kind of hidden talent. As it turns out, he's very clever, giving him a rarely-found mature sense of humor.

Something else that is overlooked: his appearance. You won't notice if you don't look quickly, since he won't draw attention to himself with loud words or loud clothing. But his face is something special. His features are balanced and symmetrical. His skin is clear and smooth. His hair is soft, and so are his eyes. His eyes make your heart skip a beat. His modest smile makes your insides churn. He’s beautiful.

One thing you do know about a boy next door from the beginning that remains true upon closer examination is his purity. He almost definitely is a virgin, and likely hasn't even had his first kiss, either. He’s waiting for the right girl, the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with. And when you’ve gotten to know him, you will want to be the one he falls in love with.
You: So I'm going on my third date with Mark this weekend. I'm thinking about going exclusive with him.
Friend: What? I didn't even know his name before he asked you out! He's totally boring! Shouldn't you be after someone with drive and charisma, like Gavin?
You: You haven't gotten to know him. He's actually a total boy next door!
Friend: No way! In that case, you gotta hold on to him as tight as you can!
