7 TV Crushes You Used To Have That Were Actually Terrible

We all have that problematic fave that we obsessed over when we were younger, right? My personal love was Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I was obsessed with him and his British accent. You can relate, I’m sure. Then I realized that he was an abusive monster, which really ruined the show for me. But, a lot of the time, you don’t realize that your crush is actually a mess, both in real life and on TV. We all tend to glamorize people when we are crushing on them, even if they are actually a little rude or even mean to us. This is especially true when it comes to fictional characters – we tend to look past all of their bad qualities and pretend that they are better than they actually are. I mean, these people aren’t real, so they must be good… right? Not always.

I know that crushes on fictional characters don’t seem like a huge deal, but hear me out: if you have a crush on someone fictional, you might look for similar qualities in a real person, which can be tricky and dangerous. If you normalize their crappy behavior in a show, that means you will normalize crappy behavior IRL. It really does matter! If you used to find yourself crushing on a ton of TV characters, check out this list to see if they were actually pretty terrible people.
