Let’s be real – sometimes, TV shows and movies set us up for failure in terms of relationship expectations. We all have an on-screen crush that we wish was bae, because they’re just so darn supportive and loyal with their own partners. It may not be realistic in the 2020 dating pool, but here are the most adorable boyfriends on television that will never disappoint you.
Jim Halpert, The Office
Jim and Pam were always an adorable couple, but we all have a special soft spot for the hilarious and deadpan tall drink of water that is Jim Halpert. John Krasinski is bae in every role he plays, but The office is definitely where millions of crushes originated. He might not be the classic climb-the-corporate-ladder success story, but he’s a humble family man and amazing husband. Most of us (single or taken) dream of having a Jim just because of his side-splitting sense of humor and pranks.
Marshall Erikson, How I Met Your Mother
Talking about tall and funny men – how could we not follow up with Marshall Erikson of How I Met Your Mother? The other male characters in the show had questionable morals, but Marshall was always a loyal friend and partner to his wife Lily. In love since college, Marshall’s main focus is to make her happy, at all times, even if it means putting her needs above his own.
Nick Miller, New Girl
Nick Miller wasn’t always the ideal boyfriend. But he always had a good heart, and grew a lot over the different seasons. We know one thing: he was madly in love with Jessica Day since Day 1, he just didn’t know it. Nick was always Jess’s #1 cheerleader who supported and stayed by her side her through the craziest shenanigans.
