1. Your friend's kuya.
Hey, guys, you know what we should do? We should all go into Matt's room when he's not there and sit in a circle and listen to music, while we wear his shirts and smell his deodorant, you know—for fun!
2. The fictional character.
Whether it's a teen drama heartthrob, protagonist in a novel, or maybe even the fan-fic version of a real person, the fictional character is somehow so unbelievably perfect for you that if he were real, you would totally fall in love and be together forever. I'm still waiting for you, Seth Cohen.
3. The barista.
Or bartender, or waiter, or library desk associate. Whatever he does for a living, this dude is a total dream, and you see him everywhere. Well, you will, now that you rerouted your entire daily routine to "bump" into him with the precision timing of a Swiss watch.
4. The opposite.
He's a punk, you do ballet. What more can I say?
5. Your boyfriend's friend.
OK, so it's not like you actually want to be with him, but let's just say that in a different universe, where you weren't with your current boyfriend, well, you might just think his BFF was cute as hell and funny and nice and *sigh* maybe in another lifetime.
6. Your friend's boyfriend.
If you haven't pictured what it would be like to date your good friend's boyfriend, then either you're a liar or your friends have bad taste.
7. A fifth cousin twice removed and don't worry, you guys, it's fine.
Cute guys are cute guys. It's not like you would ever actually act on it, but you will angle for that goodbye hug at the family reunion only to confirm that, yes, he smells just as good as he ever has.
8. The bad boy.
Ugh, could you be more of a stereotype? Like you know you're buying into a centuries-old trope, but his hair is so artfully unkempt that you don't even GAF.
9. The authority figure.
This dude is likely older and exhibits major in-charge vibes. Maybe he's a professor at your university or the shift manager at your retail job, but his power is what makes him sexy. Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes him totally off-limits, so you'll have to log a ton of fantasy hours on this one.
10. The "maybe in another lifetime."
When you're single, he's taken, and when you're taken, he's single. Then finally, when you're both unattached, he leaves for another country. Yikes.
11. The coworker.
You took the long way to the restroom near his desk for 10 months before finally having a conversation with Miguel from Marketing and realizing he's actually a total bore. But you know what? He's not bad to look at, and sometimes your eyes need a break from staring at a computer screen all day. It's for your own health, really.
12. Mr. Wanderlust.
The guy you fell for while studying abroad or the guy who fell for you while he was studying abroad. Accents, man.
13. The guy who just doesn't get your love.
No matter what you do, this guy will never be into you. Not because you're not good enough, but because you're just not his type. But that's OK—crushes don't have to be requited to be real. Alright, bro, so you're not into me. I respect that, but just know that in my mind we are making out—hard.
14. The just a "friend."
So something happened to Drew between last year and now because all of a sudden he's, like … taller? Or something?? It's fine, we're just friends. Everything is chill and normal.
15. That guy you saw that one time.
Ugh, remember him? It was four years ago in some restaurant. He was sitting across from you and wearing the most perfect white T-shirt. He had deep brown eyes and the hair of a Disney Prince and even though you didn't speak, you definitely had an unspoken connection. *Sigh.* Never forget.
