Let’s be honest, most of us spend our time binging shows on Netflix, HBOGo, Hulu Plus and Amazon. The access to all these mediums not only gives me something to watch on the elliptical, but also provides a lot of nostalgic television viewing. If there’s one thing I love going back and watching, it’s the tortured, star-crossed, meant-to-be relationships that played out dramatically but wonderfully on the screen.
The OG TV boyfriend. Who didn’t want to get it on in the back of Chuck’s limo? Never forget all the hot role-playing Chuck and Blair did throughout their relationship, or the time Chuck fixed the ballot box so Blair would win Prom Queen. Somehow that devilish grinning slight sociopath stole our hearts and now we’re all looking for our all-powerful, super rich dark knight with a heart of gold.
Your athletic boyfriend. This bad boy turned good and all he needed was the right girlfriend – that could be me right? All I ever need in life is the sight of Nathan’s sweet face and hot bod dripping in rain confessing his love for me. The sexiest thing about Nathan, aside from how romantic he is in general, was how hard he tried in every aspect of his relationship with Haley.
FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth
Your overprotective boyfriend. Booth is the definition of a man’s man, but he’s not gross or misogynistic, he adheres to a strong moral code and is always going to do the right thing. His angel-ic face (get it?) is just always so full of concern for your safety. Plus he has a great sense of humor, looks great when he goes undercover and is a true family man. Stick with Booth and you’ll be safe from any home burglar, there will always be steaks cooking and your kids will have a fantastic father.
Damon Salvatore & Eric Northman
Your badass vampire boyfriends. Once upon a time you assumed they were evil and had way too many violent tendencies, but then you realized that’s only half true. For the sake of a fictional supernatural boyfriend we can overlook the violence used to keep their ladies safe (note: do not do this in real life). Basically these guys are charismatic, charming, can wear the hell out of a leather jacket and are fantastic in bed – or so it seems on the screen.
Your bad-idea-but-I-can’t-help-it boyfriend. Talk about hot for teacher! Ezra can really symbolize any guy you’re into but aren’t supposed to be, whether it’s your teacher, personal trainer, that one flirty coworker, etc. The great thing about Ezra is his sensitive nature and he’s an author so you know you’ll be getting love notes on the regular.
Your thoughtful boyfriend turned husband. Let’s be real, no one can really measure up to the gloriousness of Pacey (especially not Dawson). He bought Joey a wall, they sailed around the coast together. He’s sweet, adorable and isn’t afraid to beat someone up for vandalizing a school mural you worked really hard to complete. He helps your family put together a successful B&B opening weekend. He remembers what you were wearing during important conversations and notices when you have on your mom’s bracelet. Pacey Witter is the full package.
