On this #ThrowbackThursday I'm going to reminisce about every boy I had a crush on throughout my childhood. All on TV, of course. When these shows aired I was far too shy to speak to an actual boy, so my crushes had to form around fictional characters. Honestly, after making this card I realized I still have crushes on pretty much all these dudes.

Childhood me is swooning right now. Adult me is also swooning. Home Improvement was one of my favorite shows growing up and JTT played a kid right around the same age as me, and I think at the time, that was the only requirement for me to have a crush. Since Home Improvement he has quit acting, stepped out of the spotlight (ugh, why) and focused on academics, recently graduating from Columbia.
Still got it. Every kid knows Andrew Keegan because he was on 7th Heaven, one of the few shows that parents let their kids watch (I always lost the argument about being able to watch Spongebob). Of course every girl loved Andrew Keegan, he played a teenage single dad who made time for his kid and Mary. These days Andrew Keegan is still a heartthrob, acting in a bunch of smaller films and even doing a little theater work.
Seriously, aside from the long hair, he still looks pretty similar to his childhood self. I'm not complaining ;) Every kid's fascination with aliens made 3rd Rock from the Sun an awesome show, even though JGL played a bit of a know-it-all. Unless you live under a rock, you know what JGL has been up to lately. His most recent project is the challenging role of Edward Snowden.
Shawn Hunter will always have such a special place in my heart. That bad boy, leather jacket thing he had going on in Boy Meets World probably helped define the type of guy I'm attracted to. For me, he's the ultimate heartthrob!! Since BMW, he's done some acting, but has focused more on writing and directing. Whatever he's doing, he still looks good doing it.
