9 Reasons John B From Netflix's 'Outer Banks' Is The Quarantine Boyfriend You Need RN

Sure, experts are saying now's the perfect time to find true love but in my expert opinion, what's truer than finding your dream boyfriend on the small screen? No drama, just fun.

Should you be looking to swap out your old television boyfriends for a new one while cooped up at home, it's time to watch Netflix's new show "Outer Banks." Because living vicariously through the love story of John B and Sarah on your TV screen is a surefire way to enjoy at least one day (yes, I binged it for 10 straight hours, leave me alone) in quarantine.

Here are nine reasons John B, played by 27-year-old Charles Stokes, is the dream quarantine boyfriend:

He's a babe, for starters.

Not much more to add to this point, honestly. He's hot and everyone knows it, so let's get Chase Stokes in more shows or movies, please and thank you so much.

He's independent.

After his mother left him at an early age and his father mysteriously "disappeared at sea," John B was forced to take care of himself. Even at 16 (the actor is 27 in real life, relax), when everyone else is being a reckless teenager, all of his decisions were for his survival.

He’s mature.

Though he really doesn't have a choice given his circumstances, John B handles most things better than some thirty year olds. Including the fact that he's constantly running away from people who want to murder him.

He's respectful of women.

Unlike Sarah's boyfriend, Topper, who throws a fit when she changes her mind about sleeping with him, John B is patient and kind, suggesting that they wait, which naturally makes her actually want to do it.

He's rugged.

He works on a boat in the sun all day, his hair is always a salty mess, he's always sweating and dirty, and (let's face it) it's hot.

He's a really good friend.

Even when Kie wanted him to choose between her and Sarah, he wouldn't. He was determined to make Kie see the good in her, while also refusing to give up on Kie.

He's a loyal son.

Even though he got a little reckless once he found out what happened to his dad (going to keep it this vague to not completely spoil it for anyone who hasn't finished season 1), he made all of his decisions for his father.

He’s willing to risk his life for the ones he loves.

In every situation he's in, whether it's with his friends or Sarah, he's willing to do whatever it takes to protect the things and people he loves, regardless of whether that means he dies in the process.

He’s in touch with his emotions.

Though he is incredibly strong throughout the entire movie, when he's saying goodbye to all of his pals at the end and telling them to say goodbye to Sarah for him, he starts to cry.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
