Here are the top five (fictional) guys I’d date if given the chance . . . shhh, don’t tell my boyfriend!
1. Smith Jerrod, Sex and The City
Just to point out the obvious, this guy is THE SEX. He has got to be the hottest guy any of the “Core Four” ever dated. I mean really, Harry and Mr. Big? What are you gals thinking? Anyways, the best part is that he isn’t just hot. He is so devoted to the previously promiscuous Samantha that he SHAVES HIS HEAD FOR HER when she has cancer! I know I wasn’t the only one happy crying during that episode. The fact that he was able to lock down the legendary sexaholic speaks volumes about him in more ways that one. Also, with his hot actor name and his sexy as hell Absolut campaign, we can easily forget that he used to be a waiter named Jerry.
2. Hercules, Disney’s Hercules
Let’s just start out with the HE’S A GOD factor when it comes to Hercules. He has super human strength, and a super human capacity for L-O-V-E. This dude tops the charts when it comes to doing what it takes to woo the woman he loves. Like, really, first he rescued Meg from the evil centaur Nessus and then he saved the entire universe from the villainous (but hysterical) Hades. He sings, he rides Pegasus, he went from Zero to Hero and offered his soul in exchange for freeing his gal from the River Styx—seriously, what DOESN’T this guy do? Plus, if you are his girlfriend, you get to live at Mt. Olympus. Win.
3. Patrick Verona, 10 Things I Hate About You
One long look into the deep hazel eyes of Patrick Verona makes us forget that this guy only started dating Kat as part of a shady, money-making scam. Put aside the rumors of his jail sentence and focus on the unforgettable scene where this bad ass Aussie sings “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” to his main squeeze while dancing/running from cops on the school bleachers. He is amazingly sexy, upfront with his feelings and an all around cool guy. Also he is Heath Ledger so . . . yeah. I mean really, who wouldn’t flash a teacher to get Patty V. out of detention??
4. Peeta Mellark, The Hunger Games
Hey girl, you like bread? Peeta’s got all of the hot (and purposely burned) bakery bread that you could ask for when you’re starving and sitting in the rain. He is handsome as hell and willing to sacrifice it all for the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately for us, that girl is Katniss Everdeen, but hey, we can still dream! Besides the fact that he was willing to die to let Katniss win the Hunger Games, he also can throw heavy bags of sand, he can paint like a pro, and he shines like a star when he’s in the spotlight. All I can say is that I’d take bread from Peeta any day.
5. Noah Calhoun, The Notebook (Duh)
Whether you like him young, optimistic and clean-shaven, or in his depressed, mountain-man days–Noah is inarguably one of the sexiest and greatest fictional boyfriends to ever exist in the pages of a book or on a television screen. I mean really, what else do you want? This guy’s main ambition in life is to build you a perfect lakeside mansion so that you can paint sans clothing on any balcony that you like. Not to mention, he is hard-working and the Master of the grand gesture. From hanging off a Ferris wheel, to lying in the middle of the street, to writing 365 letters before Gmail . . . all I can say is WHERE ARE THE MEN LIKE THIS HIDDEN?
What fictional dudes are you crushing on? Tim Riggins, anyone? Tell me in the comments!
