Peter Kavinsky Gave Milennial Girls New Hope On Finding The One

Peter Kavinsky Gave Milennial Girls New Hope On Finding The One

The rom-com era is making a comeback.


So every decade has the romantic comedy that everyone says is hands down the best love story of all time. There's The Notebook, Sleepless in Seattle, Love Actually, The Proposal. The one thing that made them great was the leading man in the movie. The guy who was the cool or tough guy but was the low-key hopeless romantic. These are the movies we grew up loving but we haven't movies that had the same vibe in a while until now.

Heads up, There will be spoilers to the movie below so you've been warned.

"To All The Boys I Love Before" is a Netflix Original movie about a high-school junior girl who wrote five letters to the crushes she has had over the course of her teenage life. Her littl sister sent the letters out and her whole world is turned upside down. The first person to recieve a letter was Peter Kavinsky, a lacrosse player who is labeled as the cool guy but is also a sweet and nice guy. He had just broken up with his girlfriend and wanted to make her jealous and help Laura Jean avoid her friend and sister's ex boyfriend, Josh, as he had recieved as well and she's mortified. They decided to start a fake relationship and over the course of the movie, they start falling for each other. What makes the story even better is Peter showing his true colors.

to all the boys i loved before

At first he plays the part of being a fake boyfriend like holding her hand and kissing her in public but her starts doing little things for Laura Jean. He wrote her love notes (on paper), he hung out with her and her little sister, introduced her to his mom and brother. He drove across town to get her favorite yogurt for her just because. On the class ski trip, they get in the hot tub together and Peter tells her that he doesn't want to force her to have sex and that the moment should be special for her. He thought about them being long-term rather than temporary. He was the first one to say how he actually felt about her and that he's in love with her. When a video comes out of the two of them in the hot tub, Laura Jean is harassed and Peter defends her in front of the entire school.


Now mind you, this is based off a best selling book so there is some non-fiction to it but it's a young adult novel that tells the story of being young and wanting to live a fantasy love story but life happens and it's complicated. But when you really care about someone and have feelings you can't describe in just a sentence, that's real feelings and it's a HUGE deal that a guy opens up about his feelings.

The guy who plays him, Noah Centineo, has become the milennial Ryan Gosling and he is exactly like his character in real life. His tweets are filled about love quotes and jokes that will make you swoon to your knees. In a time where girls are always messing around with the wrong guys or getting their hearts broken on the regular and when dating has become so complicated, having this little imaginary hope of there being the perfect guy is pretty nice. And it makes girls think that there's a Peter for every girl out there

10 Life Lessons Meredith Grey Taught Us

"You can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them."


1. You only fail when you stop trying.

"If there's just one piece of advice I can give you, it's this — when there's something you really want, fight for it, don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems."

2. Face life and your fears head-on.

"And the only way to get rid of a shadow is to turn off the lights, to stop running from the darkness and face what you fear, head on."

3. Speak your mind.

"Knowing is better than wondering, waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying."

4. Don't ever forget how to talk to one another.

"Communication. It's the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say or how to ask for what we really need."

5. Life doesn't come with instructions.

“Just when we think we've figured things out, the universe throws us a curve ball. So we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find our way back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way, sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong."

6. Look for the good in everyone.

"Just because people do horrible things... it doesn't always mean they're horrible people."

7. Don't apologize for how you cope.

“I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke."

8. Faith over fear.

“I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong?"

9. Make mistakes and learn from them.

“We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore."

10. Life isn't about finding yourself; it's about creating yourself.

“At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them."

5 Fierce Empowering Female Fight Scenes To Satisfy Your Action Palette

These fights are so ferociously diva-like, you'll be watching them everyday.


Below are just a couple of fight scenes to watch if you want to see some badass women beat people up in a choreographed and stylish fashion. The scenes range from wife-versus-mistress to gory assassin battles, so check'em out!

1. Sharon vs Lisa - "Obsessed" (2009)

The wife vs. wannabe-mistress fight that you never knew you wanted. Oh, and who doesn't want to watch Beyoncé beat someone's ass... especially the woman trying to steal her man. This will keep your fist in the air rooting for Beyoncé which is all I've ever dreamed about.

2. Angels vs Madison Lee (feat. Thin Man and Seamus O' Grady) - "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" (2003)

This explosive rooftop battle features Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore is the epitome of a triple threat. They battle in an acrobatic match against Demi Moore's raven-like character "Madison Lee", featuring Justin Theroux as an angry Irishman and the Crispin Glover as the mysterious "thin-man" (whose eyebrows are extra fierce).

3. Tina vs Zack - "Dead or Alive" (2006)

Now, this movie is absolutely atrocious...and I love every minute of it. The sole reason I added this fight to the list is because of the ridiculous sound effects especially at 00:59-1:00 minute... which may be the most terribly satisfying sound effect ever. Jamie Pressly exudes such power through her character Tina, and that's vividly seen in this fight scene.

4. The Operator vs Two Assassins - "The Night Comes For Us" (2018)


This fight scene may not be the easiest to sit through just because it's extremely grotesque and visual, but my god is it so well-done and a chaotic fun time. Julie Estelle plays the operator in a handicap match between two assassins that are just going at each other nonchalantly at hyper speed. The blood, injuries, and sex have no filter in this scene (and movie) which is just peak satisfaction for action lovers.

5. Letty vs Kara - "Furious 7" (2015)

What a glamorous battle that packs one hell of a punch. These queens are hacking at each other wearing gowns, and it's probably the toughest thing I've ever seen. Just watching Ronda Rousey and Michelle Rodriguiez have a full-fledged battle in a high-end, luxurious setting allows this whole scene to come together to be one of the fiercest I've ever scene.
