We’d Like to Date These Movie Boyfriends IRL

By Desiree Pore

Moments from Volleyfriends UAAP Volleyball Kick Off SHAD

FACT: Romantic comedy films are the reason why girls everywhere fall head over heels in love with a fictional character. These fictional heartthrobs are the main reason why we have such high expectations in men (as we should). Whether it’s Christian Grey or Miggy Montenegro, these big screen boyfriends made us think that such guys exist irl; come to think of it, it’s even more heartbreaking that these guys only exist in fictional form.

Guys, you can learn a thing or two from these dashing big screen boyfriends.

Jake Del Mundo

Played by: Gerald Anderson in Always Be My Maybe

Find someone who’s willing to give up his bachelor ways just so that he could be with one girl for the rest of his life. Yep, that’s what Jake would do.


Lorenz Montinola

Played by: Rico Yan in Got 2 Believe

Now that we’re living in a world where “likes” are more important than your well-being, find yourself a Lorenz who’ll act as your Instagram husband.


Anthony Lagdameo

Played by: JM de Guzman in That Thing Called Tadhana

Fall in love with a guy who literally travels with you and quotes F. Scott Fitzgerald just to help you get over your douche of a boyfriend.



Played by: Marvin Agustin in Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?

Who wouldn’t fall in love with your best friend a.k.a. Marvin Agustin? The classic friend zone movie introduced us to Ned, the very relatable best friend who, at first, didn’t reciprocate the feelings of his girl best friend (just like every guy).


Played by: Empoy Marquez in Kita Kita

Tonyo may be a low-key stalker, but don’t ignore the fact that he did everything that he could just to cheer up his neighbor (even dying for crying out loud).


Gimo Talumpati

Played by: Robin Padilla in Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw

Guys, if you ever feel like you’re not good enough for your girl, just look at how Gimo overcame that insecurity in Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw (dude almost let his girl go).



Played by: Vhong Navarro in My Only Ü

Girls, get you a man who made it his life’s mission to make you happy up until your dying breath.



Played by: Aga Muhlach in Basta’t Kasama Kita

Who wouldn’t want a guy who kisses passionately and intensely like Alex in Basta’t Kasama Kita?
