5 Famous Men I Was Legitimately In Love With At One Time Or Another
Wil Wheaton, Actor On "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
My/His Age At The Time We Fell In Love: 11/18
Length Of Our Relationship: 3 years
Why I Loved Him: For his convincing portrayal of what appears to be the only teenage boy on the Starship Enterprise; his attractive, slim-cut stature; his boyish good looks; his righteous, unapologetic nerdiness at a time when boy bands ruled; his ability to pull off a truly heinous sweater; his catalog of underrated direct-to-DVD filmography, including "December" and "Toy Soldiers."
How Far I Went For Love: In addition to enduring the cruel taunts of my fellow tweens, who said Wil had a pencil neck, I wrote a 250-page "Star Trek" fan-fiction novel in which I, as a fictional character, got to fall in love with his character Wesley.
Level Of Intimacy: Our characters exchanged "I love yous" in the aforementioned fanfic. In real life, I wrote him a fan letter telling him I loved him and received an autographed photo of Wil wearing a shit ton of "Batman" schwag in return.
