To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: 13 Times Peter Kavinsky Raised the Bar for Boyfriends Everywhere

at .

Anyone's who's read Jenny Han's "To All the Boy's I've Loved Before," trilogy can definitely say that the Netflix movie did the book justice.

Of course, there are always things we wish could've been included, but overall, the writers, producers, and cast members did an excellent job of bringing Han's story to life.

While there were a lot of differences between the book and the movie, there was one thing in particular which stayed true in both adaptations: Peter Kavinsky and his giant heart. 

It's no secret that we all want a boyfriend as amazing as Peter. But to be honest, the bar, in general, feels like it's set a little too low. Watching and reading about the way Peter treated Lara Jean reminded us of how everyone should act around their significant other. 

We've put together 13 examples of when Peter Kavinsky raised the bar (or re-established where it should be) for boyfriends everywhere. 

1. When he was the softest man alive

Netflix Quotes

What I haven't said in this letter, Mal, what I've been trying to write among all these scattered words is, is that I'm afraid. I'm scared, Mal. We grew up reading about a Saint who would one day perform a miracle of light and solve our country's problems, and we knew that was a lie. We knew that no stranger ever solved our problems for us. No great miracle was coming. That's why we had each other. The world is hard and cruel, but we had each other, and that was enough. That was everything. If Saints were once real, they've long since left us. Yet now, everyone is looking at me like I'm the answer. Like I'm the miracle the world has been waiting for. Or perhaps they know I'm a fraud, an imposter. I'm terrified. Of failure or success. If I really do have this power, who am I? I would be everything we mocked and dismissed. A stranger to myself. And to you. You once told me you were the most scared when you were lost. But getting lost can happen even when you know where you are. You told me about cardinal north and true north. Cardinal north is a direction on a map. True north? True north is home. It is where you feel safe and loved. You have always been my true north, Mal. And if I am to survive this, I need to be home again, with you.

Inej: Kaz, if not Saints, what do you believe in?
Kaz: Myself.
Inej: Why'd I even ask?
Kaz: And you. And Jesper. My Crows.
Inej: Because we flock to your bidding? Like the animals of vengeance, you named us after?
Kaz: Crows don't just remember the faces of people who wronged them. They also remember those who were kind. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for. No Saint ever watched over me. Not like you have.
