11 Reasons Girls Across The World Are Falling Hopelessly In Love With 'All The Boys' Peter Kavinsky

We never asked for such a stand-up guy.

11 Reasons Girls Across The World Are Falling Hopelessly In Love With 'All The Boys' Peter Kavinsky

If you aren't from another universe or living under a rock in the middle of nowhere, you have probably heard all about Netflix's new hit, "To All The Boys I've Loved Before." The movie is based on the best selling novel, but seeing the book brought to life has brought all of the feels. More so, seeing the male lead, Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), brought to life has girls around the world putting out craigslist adds to find their very own Kavinsky.

Why? Well, let me just tell you.

He writes Laura Jean notes.

OK, so even if the notes did start off as an "I want to make my ex-girlfriend jealous" type of thing, in the end, they were so much more. They were meaningful and they may be the reason Laura Jean and Peter inevitably ended up together. I mean come on girls, who doesn't want their 'fake' boyfriend to write them cute love notes?

He shows his girl off on social media.

So, maybe Laura Jean was his "fake" girl, but fake or not, he didn't hesitate to show her to the world. He was completely OK with posting cute couple pictures on his Insta, and let's be honest, we all love cute couple pics.

He talks about the "deep" things.

He actually had really meaningful conversations with Laura Jean on difficult topics such as his father leaving or her mother passing away. People often avoid the hard conversations, but he didn't, and that is a wonderful thing.

With that... he's a good listener.

He is just as good of a listener as he is a conversationist. He didn't reply with cliche answers to Laura Jean's difficult statements. Instead, he really listened and he really let her know that he was right there with her, in that moment.

He's good with kids.

Kavinsky was amazing with Laura Jean's little sister. Like, really good. And let's just take a moment to accept the fact that girls are a sucker for a guy who is good with kids.

He willingly watched "Sixteen Candles."

Do I even need to say more? If you watch this sappy classic with me, chances are I am already in love with you.

He shakes the stigma on jocks.

Peter isn't the stereotypical jock that we all hear about. He isn't "dumb." He isn't rude and he does have manners. Peter never pressures Laura Jean into anything and he doesn't put himself before her, at all really. Despite the whole "will you be my fake girlfriend so that my ex will be jealous," Peter doesn't try to do things that benefit just him. He is considerate, even if it takes getting past the first couple of scenes to see that.

He stands up for Laura Jean.

Peter stands up in front of a whole hallway of students and puts up for Laura Jean after a few hot tub rumors, rather than allowing people to believe that false things happened. That, my friends, is a dude.

He chooses for the shy girl.

After everything, Peter doesn't go back to his popular, ex-girlfriend. He falls in love with the shy girl. He chooses the shy girl. And he is unapologetic about it.

I mean... he's like really cute, too.

OK, yeah. The fact that he is so dang cute really helps his case. I mean come on, look at the way he looks at Laura Jean!

He's an all together solid fake-real boyfriend.

I mean personally, I would be OK with being Peter Kavinsky's fake girlfriend.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
