If you’ve ever scribbled your childhood crush’s name on a notebook, you’re in good company. We did, too. In fact, we have a long list of teenie boppers who made our hearts skip a beat every time we saw them on television. And we’d be SO embarrassed to tell people about them now.
Remember Shia LaBeouf? Mario Lopez? The middle Hanson brother? We had major crushes on each of them. All you needed was a rock hard set of abs, perfect hair and a mischievous smile to win our affection and get your poster plastered on our bedroom walls.
Seriously, we shudder at the thought of the teens we crushed on in middle school. But for nostalgia’s sake, we’re sharing them with you — and hoping you can relate. Check the slideshow for a look back on the teen heartthrobs we loved back in the day and wouldn’t look twice at now.
