Never Forget: 15 Television Crushes You've Not Been Properly Nursing Lately

Look, people. You can’t just wily-nilly go picking up a huge television crush and drop it whenever that person leaves a show or that show is cancelled. Just because an actor or actress with whom you had a crush is not currently employed doesn’t mean you can cancel that crush. THIS IS IMPORTANT. It takes commitment, people. Dedication. Those shrines don’t build themselves, you know? They need constant upkeep. Because you never know when he or she is going to return to television and you don’t want to lose your place in line. You want to be able to say more than, “Oh, I had a crush on him back in the day.” What you want to say is, “I’ve had a non-stop continuous uninterrupted crush on that man since the day I laid eyes on him through my television. Way back before the digital converters, even.”

So, I’m just going to go through a few of them. This is by no means an exhaustive list of all your past television crushes. But I want to get a few of them back in front of you, to fan those flames before the embers burn out and you forget. Because you can never forget because the day you do is the day that crush dies and your heart shrivels up and you turn into one of the rest of them. One of those “normals,” with their normal cars and their normal houses and their beautiful children and their healthy television watching habits. THOSE PEOPLE SICKEN ME.
