My pretend boyfriends

Now, just know when I present this list, that all have the backing of my actual boyfriend. Or he at least knows about them and maybe questions my taste.

1. Ben from Parks and Recreation:

Ben Wyatt is basically the brown-headed version of my boyfriend, which makes it fitting that's he's #1. Nerdy but cute. Not into fashion but still dresses well. Knows lots of random facts. Is kind of smug. Yep, that's my real-life boyfriend. 

In fact, watching Adam Scott as Ben reminds me why I like my boyfriend. (No, Logan, I don't need reminders, but you know what I mean). Now if I could just get my boyfriend to wear skinny ties like Ben.

2. Nathan Fillion

I am so late to this boat, but I've been fangirling hard for Nathan Fillion ever since I marathoned Firefly with, you guessed it, my actual boyfriend. 

Charm and humor? Uh, yeah I'm there. Plus Firefly fans know he has a nice butt. (unless that was a body double and then, oh god the betrayal.) 

3. Eric from True Blood

 Do I even need to explain this one? (hint: he's beautiful)
 
4.  Troy from Reality Bites

He's brilliant but lacking in ambition. AKA perfect boyfriend material, amirite? But I haven't wanted two movie characters to get together more than Troy and Lelaina. So maybe I just really want them to stay boyfriend and girlfriend forever and ever to warm my romantic heart.

5. Nick Miller from New Girl

Yep, I've got a thing for Nick Miller. Like Troy, he'd make a terrible boyfriend, but there's something about his goofy charm that makes him my favorite New Girl resident. Also, my use of the term, "you big weirdo" has increased exponentially because of him. 
 
And there you have it. I have six boyfriends. Surprisingly, it's actually kind of tedious. 

So who're you in a pretend relationship with?

  1. I tweeted this out last night: Zac Efron and Dave Franco. It makes me feel like a cougar (even tho they're older than me) but they just look so young!

  3. Harry Potter. Duh.


    My freshman year of college I made a list of infatuations. It included real people, celebrities, and fictional characters. Hopefully I can dig it up one day and write a post about it.

  4. Brian Williams from the NBC Nightly News, don't ask because I don't even know why.

  5. Wait, what! Why did I think Dave Franco was like 20? That makes me feel better because I think he's definitely cute.

  6. Just googled him. Yes, please. I second that.

  7. Haha. You know I've never seen the Harry Potter movies (yeah, I know) but he did look pretty handsome in Woman in Black.

  8. Haha, hey--I can see that! He's perfectly handsome.

  9. YES to the first 3. I love them so much! Ben Wyatt is my #1 as well. When Adam Scott walked next to me at a concert last year i just about fainted.

  10. oh man, so perfect! haha! it's strange but my husband and i talk openly about our celebrity crushes. ain't nothin wrong with that!

  11. Haha, I would definitely have fainted. This will sound weird but I love Adam Scott's sharp facial features. It's like exactly what I'm attracted to. Plus, I love Party Down too.

  12. I know! My boyfriend and I have both shared our top 5. I seriously question his taste but I'm glad we can talk about stuff like that without someone getting jealous, because as if my crush on Adam Scott will go anywhere.

  13. Aw what a cute post! I love this! I think whenever you're with someone you do start to see shades of them in TV characters or celebrities that you wouldn't have noticed before.


    I always say I'm like Leslie Knope because I'm always talking about my boyfriend's butt lol, and I also love Nick from TNG he's so adorably ridiculous and struggling, sounds bad but hopefully you know what I mean :)

  14. Ooo, I'm with Kathy about Taylor Kinney. One of mine is Dylan McDermott (and has been for years). He's on Hostages this year and my husband keeps saying "your boyfriend is a bad guy."


    It drives me nuts when I name a celebrity crush and someone says "you know he's gay." Right, because THAT'S the reason I'd never have a chance with him. First I'd have to get past a) being married and b) that this dude's a CELEBRITY.

  15. Haha, I love Leslie and Ben's relationship. I think one of my favorite episodes, called "Littlest Park" or something, is when they decide to just screw it and be together.


    And Nick really is so adorably ridiculous. Like I know he'd make a terrible boyfriend (really? a massive box of unpaid bills?), but he's so damn cute.

  16. Hahaha! Yes, damn it, Neil Patrick Harris is gay--there go my chances with him because obviously we were going to meet outside my house in Colorado and be together forever. And Dylan McDermott is really handsome. Last thing I saw him in was that white house movie with Gerard Butler and American Horror Story.
