The Beloved Men of Netflix

The Beloved Men of Netflix

They steal our hearts with each episode. Now it's time to give them some credit.

Let's face it: it's almost impossible to watch an entire Netflix series without falling in love at LEAST once. Whether it was the star football player or the hottest surgeon, we all know we've fallen head over heels for the men that make up our favorite Netflix shows. So, I figured it would only be fair to take a moment and appreciate the Netflix boys who stole our hearts.

1. "Friday Night Light" Tim Riggins

The man, the myth, the legend. First off, if you haven't watched Friday Night Lights, I don't know how you can consider yourself an avid Netflix enthusiast. Secondly, I don't know how you couldn't love Tim Riggins. His bad boy attitude with his quiet, sweet heart literally stole our hearts from day one.

2. "One Tree Hill" Lucas Scott

Just thinking about Chad Michael Murray's character in One Tree Hill gets my heart racing. Lucas Scott: the charismatic, soft, gentle superstar of the show. And no matter how many times he genuinely pissed us off, we couldn't stay mad at him.

3. "Grey's Anatomy" Derek Shepherd

There's nothing better than a handsome doctor. And although he's no "McSteamy," Dr. Shepherd is warm, compassionate, and charming. Besides, who doesn't love a man with a stethoscope?

4. "Gossip Girl" Nate Archibald

Arguably the most consistent character on Gossip Girl, Nate is determined, selfless, and insanely attractive. He doesn't let his hard home life destroy his desire to succeed. Ugh, I could go on forever for Nate Archibald but will probably just save that for my next article.

5. "The Vampire Diaries" Damon Salvatore

The "bad boy" of The Vampire Diaries, Damon comes off as the sarcastic, defensive older brother. However, we came to find that he's actually the most caring, kind-hearted soul when it comes to loving someone... and that's enough to look past the majority of the first season, right?

6. "The Office" Jim Halpert

Although I never wanted to believe that nerdy guys were my type, Jim was a game-changer. His somewhat-adorable anxiety, ability to make Dwight lose it and absolute adoration of Pam make me just want to hug him and never let go.

7. "90210" Liam Court

In the earlier seasons, Liam stole the show as the self-centered bad boy that thought he was better than everyone else. However, as 90210 continued, Liam began stole our hearts. He's passionate, charming, and not too bad to look at, clearly earning his spot as one of Netflix's hottest boys.

8. "Criminal Mind" Derek Morgan

It's hard not to love this magnetic, handsome detective. Though he's personality has changed throughout the show, he is still the captivating ladies man that we know and love. Derek, you can call me "baby girl" any day.

These eight men are just a fraction of the handsome characters Netflix provides us each day. And while we know they're just fictional characters, it's hard not to fall completely head over heels for guys like these. And you know what? Maybe one day, you will find your own Lucas Scott. But until then, starstruck ladies of America, continue binge watching and falling in love. Your time will come.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?


Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
