Forget about Noah Centineo and Timothée Chalamet for a second and take a trip down memory lane — back to a time when you used to spend your measly allowance on Tiger Beat magazines to score yet another clipping of your celebrity boyfriend.

To me, that was Leonardo Di Caprio (don't judge me for my ~basic~ choice. The heart wants what it wants!), to others, it was Paul Rudd, or Brad Pitt, or any other floppy haired hottie of the time.

Back then, these boys were called heartthrobs. Today, celebrity crushes are referred to as Internet Boyfriend.
