Still searching for the perfect Instagram crush? Lolo Jones has it all.

The 34-year-old American hurdler and bobsledder is not only one of the fastest women on the planet, she’s probably the muse for Bryson Tiller’s love songs —and she should be your muse too. So before you try to slide into the next girl’s DMs on Instagram, save yourself some time — Lolo Jones has it all and you shouldn’t settle for anything less. 

1. She’s Unfiltered

Looks can be deceiving, especially on Instagram. It’s getting harder and harder to tell if the girl you’re crushing on is an expert Photoshop user or just has a strong face contouring game. Whether it’s on the track or on the red carpet, Lolo always keeps it natural.

2. She can take a joke

No matter how hot a girl is, at the end the day, if she’s too serious she’s going to kill your vibe more often than not. Lolo’s the type of girl who’s going to tag you on memes throughout the day and reply to your messages with hilarious GIFs.

3. She keeps it real

We all know that girl who posts pictures of herself at the gym every day. But is she really there working out or she just posing for the likes? One look at Lolo’s abs and you know they speak the truth. She’s in the gym putting in work and not just doing it for the Instagratification. 

4. She’s not afraid to jump right in

Relationships can get a bit boring over time, so it’s nice to be able to have someone who’s willing to change it up once in a while and do something daring. Lolo’s not afraid to escape her comfort zone and try new things—if a girl can jump in a stunt plane and do crazy barrel rolls while holding in her lunch, she’s definitely a keeper.

5. She’s got that ride-or-die mentality

Whether you’re having a bad day or you’re just hungover, you need someone who will motivate you to get through it. Lolo is exactly that ride-or-die type of girl who will always have your back and push you to be the best version of yourself. What other girl will hype you up before a final or a job interview? Who will make you feel invincible even when your chips are down? Guess what, Lolo will.
