10 Fictional Men I'd 100 Percent Marry In A Heartbeat

10 Fictional Men I Would 100 Percent Marry In A Heartbeat

These boys can have access to my "In Case of Marriage" Pinterest Page.


This quarantine has me reading lots of books and watching lots of movies (also writing lots of papers, and sending lots of emails, hey mom). With this, I have come to the realization that many of the things I look for in a potential partner stem from fictional men. I know I'm not alone here, I just didn't realize how many people appreciate a well-written character until I watched one too many TikToks on the subject.

While these men are incredibly idealistic or problematic depending on your perspective, I appreciate them.

When I was little I knew I would have a library and save the world, along with the possibility of a prince to watch movies with at nighttime. Little did I know how much I would appreciate these characters as I got older. My crushes have barely changed since the age of six, so make what you want of that.

I've been both irked and impressed by the similarities between these men, something you would no doubt find if you made your own list. This time of social distancing and isolation gives us time to reflect on heavy things that matter significantly, but it also is okay to ponder all the silly thoughts in your head that have been collecting dust in the back of that beautiful brain. So in no specific order, *drumroll please* here are ten boys I would accept a princess cut engagement ring from.

Bill Anderson, "Mamma Mia"


WOW! Adventurous, confident, bold, has a boat, AND can dance. This man has my heart. "Mamma Mia" was my first Broadway show, and with that came my love of both the first and second movies, along with an appreciation for all things ABBA. Young Bill in "Mamma Mia Here We Go Again!" could look at me with those blue eyes and make my heart stop, but his overconfidence and view of the world as an adventure would make me stay long term. We are all entitled to our own beliefs, but Donna could have traveled the world in a boat every weekend that she wasn't creating her hotel. I am right about this one.

Steve Rogers, "Captain America"


WHEW someone call the fire department. Oh, what was that? We don't need to because he could save us? You're so right! Steve Rogers is sure of himself. He is passionate. He is selfless for the cause. He is an army man with a heart of gold. He is a leader. He is intelligent enough to find a way through any obstacle. He is fearless. He could run a marathon carrying you over his shoulder. I love you, Stevie. <3

Noah Calhoun, "The Notebook"


Oh bless Noah's heart. He is bold and a romantic and full of love. He's determined and stubborn. Noah's love for Allie could just melt a cynic's heart, but if I'm being honest his love for me would melt my heart just as much. I would rope swing my heart out with you babe. I'd rather have a library than the art studio though...

Flynn Ryder, "Tangled"


This man is a thief. He stole my heart. I'm laughing writing this, but oh my I would jump out of a tower into his arms too (using my own resources to get down just like our girl Rapunzel did, just because we love 'em doesn't mean we automatically trust 'em ladies). Take me out to see the lanterns, Flynn!!

Damon Salvatore, "The Vampire Diaries"


Have you ever gone completely mute when a guy made eye contact with you? Well, as a proclaimed "talker," this has only happened to me twice. With that said, Damon would make the third. Just the first interaction though, his wit and constant need to be right would bring me out of my mute state. The eyes, the muscles, the jawline, those are all fine and dandy, but the WIT! This man is hilarious. He would also do anything for the people he loves. He's far from perfect, but I'd say yes. P.S. – Have you seen that library?

Chuck Bass, "Gossip Girl"


Holy smokes. THIS MAN! I would date him even if Blair was the scary ex. Yeah, I said it. Go ahead and dump yogurt in my hair B. He's too smart for his own good, he loves with every fiber of his being, and he means what he says. I would be the Blair to his Chuck any day of the week. Meet you on the steps C.

Steve McGarrett, "Hawaii 5-0"


Second Steve on the list, but never the second in my heart. Steve McGarrett puts criminals behind bars and saves the world for a living. He is stubborn and confident and fearless. He takes care of the people he loves and even cracks some solid jokes. I would move to Hawaii for you Steve. Call me Mrs.McGarrett.

Aladdin, "Aladdin"


My mom knew I appreciated this movie for more than Jasmine's shimmery blue outfit and the carpet ride. The scene where Aladdin talks about Jasmine to the genie? That's what I genuinely expect my husband to feel about me. He's cute, he has high aspirations, he has heart, and he puts others before himself. I would trust him.

Marty Deeks, "NCIS: Los Angeles"


Deeks is the best character on this show, don't even try to fight me on it. Deeks is funny, he's quick witted, and he's strong in his opinions. He makes the tensest situations lighter, and he makes his coworkers laugh when they really need it. He's brave and smart and opinionated. Say less.

Neal Caffrey, "White Collar"


Say it with me ladies, A! CULTURED! MAN! He doesn't like guns. He loves art. He knows an absurd amount of information. He is completely devoted to the women he loves. He looks great in a suit (quality only obviously), anddddd he is well-spoken. His humor alone would do it for me, and let's be honest the eyes aren't bad to look into either. I would go to art museums with you for every date if you wanted Mr. Caffrey.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
