Sometimes appreciating a character and coining them as your TV boyfriend is exactly the kind of fun that a show deserves. The internet has even made it a phenomenon, with fans growing attached to a character and that becoming the online boyfriend for the fandom world for a month or two.
Over the years there have been plenty of memorable additions to this list, with Peter Kavinsky from To All The Boys I've Loved Before possibly winning this year in a landslide.

But that doesn't mean that there weren't other characters that made it into the mix or at least deserve to. This is why we've collected both well known and underrated choices, all of which spread throughout currently airing shows or TV shows that are much more nostalgic now.
Which TV boyfriend do you think the internet needs to still be crushing on right now?
Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood - Shadowhunters
There is no way we could just choose one, so we didn't. Magnus and Alec have become quite a talked about pairing, both with their relationship and because of who the characters are separately. There is no better choice to invest your emotions in than these two.
Ambrose Spellman - Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina arrived and right from the start Ambrose was after our hearts. He is the perfect combination of funny and smart, and he just makes the show stand out that much more. The way that he delivers funny scenes as well as immerses us in his struggle to live every day stuck in the same place. The only place Ambrose has left to go is up, and we couldn't be more thrilled to watch him do it.
Peter Kavinsky - To All The Boys I've Loved Before
Everyone saw this coming from a mile away, and for very valid reasons. Peter Kavisnky was always destined to become a favorite, which he took as a challenge to make his presence that much more legendary. It is safe to say that everyone has heard of Noah Centineo now as a result of To All The Boys I've Loved Before, so obviously, no one is going to stop crushing on him anytime soon.
Bellamy Blake - The 100
When in doubt, trust in Bellamy Blake. The 100 has many changes throughout its five seasons, but the one consistent part of it is Bellamy Blake's inability do anything wrong. He is a well written, well acted, and well deserving of the attention that he gets as the male lead of the show. The way that he connects to the heart of the show makes him the constant place where fans can place all their emotions, which they all gladly still do.
Steve Harrington - Stranger Things
Stranger Things found a character development goldmine in Steve, making his journey to becoming a better person a successful way to gain loyal fans. Stranger Thing Season 2 only made things worse when they had Steve become a guardian of sorts to all the young children, and could anyone really blame them for that? It was probably one of their best decisions to date.
Michael Langdon - American Horror Story: Apocalypse
It was actually a surprise at first that way that Michael Langdon won over so many hearts. He is very much a villain throughout American Horror Story Season 8, but then you have to remember who his father is and what show we are all watching. In a way it should have been obvious from the start instead.
