These are the guys who stole my heart back in the day, and I would gaze at their picture in Teen Beat and get especially psyched when they were the feature with the pull-out poster in the middle. Come on, you know you did it too.
Jonathan Taylor Thomas
JTT is the first celebrity I can remember really having a crush on. I was in sixth grade and all of us girls would bring our magazines to school and giggle and blush and come up with scenarios in which we would meet, date and get married to him on a regular basis. I'm pretty sure I remember us writing letters to him and everything. This was legit, y'all.
Whoa! He actually really wasn't on my radar much when he was on Blossom, though I did think he was cute. When I was really crushin' hard was when he was on that show Brotherly Love. His brother Matthew is a cutie too, but there was just something about Joey. My BFF and I watched the show faithfully and we were SO SAD when it was cancelled!
Did anyone not crush on Zach Morris at some point? He was the quintessential California surfer boy with the great blond hair, cute smile, and maybe a slightly overblown sense of self-confidence, but it totally worked for him. We all wanted to be Kelly Kapowski, and not just because she looked great in a mini-skirt.
I first saw Devon Sawa (Sah-Wah? Swa?) in Wild America, in which you've got him and JTT in the same movie. Marketing GOLD. It doesn't get much better than that. The wispy blonde surfer cut, the deep blue eyes. It was all over and he was my new crush before the credits rolled.
Freddie Prinze Jr.
I first saw him in "She's All That", and while at first you think his character is kind of a jerk, he grows on you and by the end of the movie when he grows to love Laney and see her for what a great person she really is you're all "Awwww!" and you swoon. It doesn't hurt that he has great hair, great eyes, and an adorable smile.
I know there were many more, but these are the ones that immediately came to mind.
But when I met this guy, he blew all of these other guys out of the water:
