1. Shawn Hunter, Boy Meets World
Poor hot vulnerable Shawn. I’ve always had a thing for damaged types, and I even stuck by him when he went crazy and joined a cult! I really thought this one would last, but his friends were so annoying. Cory “Nerd Alert” Matthews, and Topanga…don’t even get me started. I thought we would bond over our shared love of giant hair, but she was always trying to talk me into doing weird interpretive dances. No thanks. Plus, they always insisted on hanging out at the same restaurant. Every. Single. Night.
2. Devon Sawa, Casper
Our relationship was very brief. We met at a Halloween party, and by the time I got back from getting some punch he was already dancing with another girl! I confronted him and he fed me some bullshit line about how we could never work because he was turning into a ghost at the end of the night.Really? He couldn’t come up with something more believable than that? Wow. Obviously crazy. So glad I escaped that one before it got too serious.
3. Sam (does he even have a last name?), Clarissa Explains it All
He was so adorable but I could never trust him. He was always hanging out with this Clarissa chick who he claimed was just a friend. Yeah right. Dude had a ladder leading into her bedroom. Over it.
4. Trent Lane, Daria
He cared way more about his band than he did about me. Even as a teen I was so not into the whole broke musician thing. Also he just seemed kind of…2 dimensional? Next.
5. Doogie Howser, Doogie Howser, M.D.
At first I was just using him to improve my SAT scores, and my parents LOVED him since he was a 16 year old doctor and all. But something just felt…off, like he wasn’t really into me no matter how hard I tried. I could never shake the nagging suspicion that he might be gay…
