Tim Tebow, a man who rivals the NFL in popularity, is single. That fact continues to have the world according to the Internet good and crazy. 

For some reason, we can't get our heads around the fact that the biggest name in football, and a face pretty much every woman loves, is without a special someone hanging on his arm. 

He plays in the biggest media market and is still playing the patience game when it comes to his love life, contrary to what we see from his colleague and fellow quarterback, Mark Sanchez

This summer, Tebow gave an interview to She Knows, discussing his decision to remain single. Here are some snippets from the article, dated July 20:

“I am not in a relationship,” Tim told SheKnows, shutting down the rumors of romance with Taylor Swift, Dianna Agron and even Katy Perry...what else is this 24-year-old looking for in a woman?

He told us: Someone like his mother and sisters. Tim is close with his mom Pam, and sisters, Katie and Christy.

“I have been so blessed with having great role models around me, number one my mom and two great sisters,” said Tim. “It’s hard for a lot of girls to measure up.”

There you go, ladies. Be more like his mom and sisters, and you are so in. 

Not that there haven't been a wealth of rumors surrounding the new prince of Manhattan. 

The biggest names to be bandied about regarding Tebow are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. An E! Online report in April, however, shut that all down. 

In fact, Tebow made sure to explain the issues that arise from merely speaking with a beautiful woman with press around:

I'm definitely single and having a good time. It's amazing, I can meet someone for 10 minutes at an event, and the next thing you know, you're dating that person, you've been with them for two years and you're about to have four kids with them. It's amazing how rumors can spread.

And then there was fellow athlete and self-proclaimed virgin Lolo Jones, who delivered news that Tebow does indeed have a girlfriend, but a secret one. 

A May 2012 New York Post article reminds us of the time she sounded off on Twitter. Jets center Nick Mangold suggested she date Tebow and she answered, "thanks Nick but i actually heard Tebow has a girlfriend he just isn't saying it publicly. the search continues..."

The search for Miss Right continues, but not for Tebow. 

In a rare twist, it seems this particular sports star is perfectly content with remaining single. As for the media and fans, they continue to look for anything and anyone that signals a budding romance.
