I will freely admit that I am one of those girls who fall in like very quickly. Whether it’s the cute Coast Guard boy in my accounting class, Alec Baldwin, or someone I have an actual shot at dating, I tend to read people fairly well and assess their potential in my large pool of daydream scenarios.
When I’m not crushing on a real, live human being, I sometimes turn to fictional characters. That’s right, I’m a fictiophile. I wouldn’t say I’m quite as creepy as the middle aged women who gets tattoos of Edward Cullen’s face on their bodies, but I’m heading in that direction.
Some of my current and former crushes include:
In the books, we get to see him as a man in control (and maybe a little OCD). Yum.
Yes, I have a crush on a Sesame Street character. But it’s the superhero version, so back off.
How can you not love Cory Matthews? I remember being young and watching Boy Meets World, dreaming about the day I’d meet a guy just like him, loving and goofy.
Oh, Peeta. He may be the perfect guy. Loving, protective, creative, and funny. Plus, he can bake.
I dare you to watch Friday Night Lights and not fall in love with Matt. He is so sweet, shy, and dorky, it makes me squeal. Watching him pursue and then love Julie is the most adorable thing ever.
One of my biggest childhood crushes. I used to dream I was their neighbor and got to go on adventures and fall in love with Henry.
Everwood was my favorite show through middle school/early high school. Ephram was my dream guy and probably the reason I dated a pianist. He was dark and brooding, and yet had this sarcastic humor I just loved.
I’ve left out one of my biggest crushes: my Disney “prince” crush! You can see him revealed here tomorrow. (Ah, the anticipation).
And now that I’ve ‘fessed up, who are some of your fictional crushes?
