The look probably sounds familiar if you have seen a thread about it, or found yourself wishing someone looked at you the way your favorite pairing does or even just watched any quick episode of television.
It isn't always successfully pulled off, the guy either has it or he doesn't.
11 TV Characters Who Deserve A Drink
But it is all about just having a male character who can look at someone they are interested in as if they are the only person in the room.
It is about creating that love, long before it truly even manages to become canon.
You know a good look when you see it because you can't forget it.
17 Male TV Characters That Are Probably Feminists
There is almost that solidified understanding that the show itself will follow through on a pairing if the guy looked just right at their romantic love interest.
This is a collection of a select few favorite looks that we think deserve to be appreciated. What is your favorite look that you think is iconic?
Bellamy Blake - The 100
The 100 has an issue and his name is Bob Morley. For a show that tries really hard not to confirm the romance between their "platonic" leads, it never quite manages to accomplish that as long as Bob Morley lets Bellamy look at Clarke in any kind of capacity. In fact, it is difficult to even choose one moment where Bellamy Blake showcased a perfect example of The Look because each one is always able to make us feel all the things.
Tyrone Johnson - Cloak and Dagger
There are not enough conversations happening about Tyrone Johnson and how he is trying to steal all our hearts. The way he manages to create these glances that hold so much promise of future romance deserves plenty of appreciation.
Conrad Hawkins - The Resident
It is kind of impossible not to include Conrad in this, he puts his all into every look he gives to Nic and that deserves the recognition.
Barry Allen -The Flash
Barry looks at Iris exactly like she deserves to be looked at it. He always manages to make her feel loved and us feel kind of unlucky that we haven't found the person that would give us this exact same look.
Wade Kinsella - Hart of Dixie
It was easy to stay invested in the possibility of Wade and Zoe being explored some time down the line because of the looks we got in the meantime.
Patrick Brewer - Schitt's Creek
The minute Patrick looked at David, it was all over. It is like Patrick invented heart eyes and after waiting for someone for David that really deserved him, this felt perfect.
John Proudstar - The Gifted
There may be some speedbumps to get through but these looks are worth all the angst that The Gifted offers us along the way.
Nick Blaine - The Handmaid's Tale
It can feel twisted to ship anything in a show as disturbing as The Handmaid's Tale but here we are and it is all Nick's fault.
Jamie Fraser - Outlander
Outlander can deal with some pretty heavy topics, but fans stick around because of the romance at the center of the story. The way Jamie looks at Claire is addicting enough to keep us coming back for more.
Gilbert Blythe - Anne With An E
The actor who portrays Gilbert has managed to nail The Look at a young enough age that it is really shocking. Any romance that he is part of after this will be just as well received because of this skill that he managed to master.
James Cole - 12 Monkeys
The way that Cole and Cassie's look at each other are great examples of The Look in full execution. Cole makes it impossible not to want them together because there is all that potential when it comes down to his feelings for her.
James Valdez - Queen of the South
This is a very obvious choice because there can't be this kind of list without James making some kind of appearance on it.
Michael Cordero - Jane the Virgin
There's a reason fans aren't able to let go of Michael, the love he felt for Jane just radiated out of every scene. It was precious getting to watch him look at Jane, always carrying hints of how much he cared for her.
Frank Castle - The Punisher
Frank looking at Karen is so pure and so soft, none of us are really worthy enough to witness them.
Michael Guerin - Roswell, New Mexico
It is ridiculous how much history and emotion you can feel from just one look between Michael and Alex. He was right when he said he never looks away, not really.
Jack Pearson - This is Us
Milo Ventimiglia's brand is based all around his ability to create meaningful relationships on screen with those looks. First Jess on Gilmore Girls and now Jack Pearson on This is Us.
Lucifer Morningstar - Lucifer
It is truly impossible to look away when Lucifer sneaks any kind of glance at Chloe.
Jake Peralta - Brooklyn Nine - Nine
I read somewhere once that Andy Samberg was more comfortable in humor than he was with romantic storylines, such as the one between Jake and Amy. It is ironic in a way considering how well he manages to capture the look that makes everyone wish they had a significant other that looked at them exactly the same way.
Jonah Simms - Superstore
Superstore teased Jonah and Amy from the very beginning of the show, but it was all about Jonah pulling that potential along. The way he always looked at Amy just right made the inevitable that much more promising and powerful.
Alec Lightwood - Shadowhunters
It is sometimes just obscene the way Alec (and Magnus) can pull off the perfect looks that scream romance and love. Shadowhunters has to be known for their success in this subsection of relationship goals.
Wyatt Logan - Timeless
There is no fan who watched Timeless and didn't want to be looked at the way Wyatt looked at Lucy.
Jim Halpert - The Office
So much of the early seasons of The Office relied heavily on Jim's love for Pam to shine through even when he couldn't actually voice it. In that time he managed to nail the look and even win the girl.
Klaus Mikaelson - The Vampire Diaries
There is something to be said about how long fans waited for Klaus and Caroline to reunite on The Originals. So much of it came from the way Klaus looked at Caroline even during The Vampire Diaries Season 3, it was all about the potential and the chemistry that Joseph Morgan brought to the role.
