9 reasons why every Irish girl lusted after Seth Cohen in the early 2000s

The dream boyfriend <3


TODAY MARKS THE 13th anniversary of The O.C. (Yes, it has been that long.)

So what better time to reminisce about Seth Cohen AKA the Ultimate TV Heartthrob of the Early 2000s?

1. First of all, you were either a Seth girl or a Ryan girl

While Ryan was the strong, silent type, Seth was far more neurotic, chatty and romantic. Hence why you had a big crush on him.

2. You loved Seth’s nerdy little ways

And fantasised about reading comics with him. (Even though the only comic you’d ever read was Beano.)

3. His romantic gestures made you swoon

Who among us didn’t actively *swoon* when Seth and Summer almost nearly kissed, but just ended up just touching noses and breathing heavily?

4. You watched the Spiderman kiss more times than you care to remember

“Ugh, why does nothing like this ever happen in Waterford?”

5. This pretty much sums up your relationship status between 2003 and 2006

6. Your teenage fantasies included…

  • Going to a Death Cab For Cutie concert with Seth Cohen
  • Exchanging Chrismukkah gifts with him
  • Rubbing your hands through his curls

And in your darkest hour, you still sometimes have fantasies like this…

9. May Seth Cohen live long in our hearts and minds

Sure he was a bit of a dweeb, but your heart still flutters whenever you see him. That’s true love.
