Cheers to the Boyfriends We Wish We Had!
*Warning: The post below contains spoilers!*
Raisin’ a glass to all my single ladies and men out there who can’t post a cute photo of their significant other on Instagram tonight. Or multiple Snapchat stories bragging about the sweet date you went on.
Y’all will get through this day, I promise.
Sit back, pour yourselves a glass of wine, and enjoy my unfiltered blog post. My inner fangirl is about to make an embarrassing appearance.
Let me begin by saying: If you haven’t seen One Tree Hill, please do yourself the biggest favor and binge watch that ASAP. (It’s on Hulu, in case you didn’t know. Netflix did us ALL dirty!)
If you’ve already seen it, then you know damn well Nathan Scott was and always will be the MVP of that show.
LOOK AT THIS GOD AMONG ALL RAVENS.
This boy’s love for Haley was crazy real. I mean, which guy is out here, trying to get cuffed at a young age, and actually remain faithful? Hardly a handful! Let's be real: most of our MCM’s can’t even give us a damn text back.
Nathan Scott, however, was out there, buying a ring for his girl, proposing, and staying married through all nine seasons.
Okay, maybe it’s a tad bit unrealistic, but all the ups and downs they go through? How they manage to survive through it all? Remaining FAITHFUL? THAT BEAUTIFUL COMMUNICATION THEY GOT GOING ON BETWEEN THEM?
REAL. 100% REAL!
Let’s recap some of their iconic moments, shall we?
EVERY single kiss in the rain. It was their thing, duh.
SEASON 1: “Don’t say I never gave you anything.”
“Always and Forever” ....ALWAYS and FOREVER... and they MEANT it. They actually, truly, 100% meant it. I bet Haley never felt like a fool with this man. Can't say that for some of us, though. *eyeroll*
WHAT ABOUT WHEN THEY REUNITE IN SEASON 9?!
“Say that again."
Tears are literally running down my cheek. Actual, ugly tears.
Don't judge me.
HE ALWAYS CHOSE MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE IT WAS HALEY’S FAVORITE! WHAT KINDA MANS?! He remembers something as simple as that, yet some of us have dudes in our lives that barely remember our birthdays. Amazing, isn't it?
All of these unrealistic standards are given to us by Nathan Scott. A real, American hero.
Anyway, our MCM could never.
Nathan Scott leaves me forever shook.
He is the reason behind #boyfriendgoals.
What an icon.
Alright, next! Moving forward with fictional men that gave us unrealistic standards and expectations...
Hailing from O.C., he’s sarcastic, he’s witty, he’s the creator of Chrismukkah!
Seth’s whiny and super nerdy, but everything he ever does for Summer? Iconic. Deserves to be framed at the LACMA iconic.
He created a comic book for her. AN ACTUAL COMIC BOOK.
Look, I don’t care for comics, but if I inspire a man to create an entire fictional universe and a character like Little Miss Vixen? Boooooy.
Can we also take a moment to appreciate THE Spiderman kiss?!
Dare I say, more legendary than the original Spiderman kiss?!
What about the coffee cart scene?
Seth Cohen declaring his love for Summer Roberts?
Uh, dead and gone.Bye.
Show me a mans with this kinda ballsiness! Where's he at?!
WHAT ABOUT THE MERMAID POEM? HE KNEW THE MERMAID POEM FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. BY HEART. WHO DOES THAT?! WHO CARES ENOUGH TO REMEMBER SOMETHING LIKE THAT?! I’VE HAD DUDES THAT COULDN’T EVEN REMEMBER MY BIRTHDAY MUCH LESS SOMETHING I WROTE?!
Also, the Summer Breeze?! He named a boat after her?! A boat. An actual, literal boat! Who does that?
Last, but certainly not least…
That eye ring is worth more than any diamond ring ever.
Seth and Summer were silly, goofy, and they always found a reason to smile even though they were always in the middle of Ryan and Marissa's drama. Seriously, it's your classic tale of "geek has a HUGE crush on the popular girl and the popular girl actually comes to her senses" and it's a super amazing story line.
I know it's an old T.V. show, but if you love yourself, you'll get into it. I promise it's worth it!
I love and appreciate these boys the most. I’ve never been more of a fangirl than when it comes to these two. Excuse my consistent screaming throughout the post, but honestly, can you blame me?
Let's keep in mind that even though these are totally fictional characters and things don't always work out the way it does on T.V., both dudes in this relationship always found a way to make it work with their girls. It's 2018 - find you a mans that'll treat you like Nathan Scott, not Luke. Wise up, y'all.
Happy Valentines Day to all!
