Raise your hand if you’re still crushing on Seth Cohen!
One of the biggest draws to teen fave The OC was Adam Brody’s portrayal of Seth Cohen, the hilariously awkward comic-book reading, Death Cab for Cutie-obsessed teenager who was hopelessly in love with the popular girl, Summer Roberts. The way Adam brought his character to life was nothing short of magical. His comedic timing was always on point and his character came with one-liners that we still use to this day.
When The O.C premiered there weren’t many characters like Seth. His love for indie music and his awkward-handsome combination was a refreshing contrast to the TV “pretty boys” or the “bad boys.” What we would have given to be the girl he pines for — actually we still would, tbh.
It’s hard to believe it’s been NINE YEARS since we said goodbye to The O.C — but we’ve binged the show so many times it feels like no time has passed. We have four seasons of Seth Cohen to be thankful for.
These are the reasons why we’ve never stopped loving Seth Cohen.
He cuts to the chase.
Has anyone ever looked as cute holding a basket of bagels??
He is all of us when we’re crushing on someone
He was the romantic we always wanted
WE’RE NOT CRYING YOU ARE.
Still waiting for someone to stand on a kissing booth for us…
And yet oh-so-smooth
He’s us as 20-somethings
Same, Seth. SAME.
He asks the important questions
Both…both you and your hair are winning.
His relationship with his dad
Sandy & Seth FOREVER.
His sweet dance moves
Please teach us how to dance, Seth.
His enviable relationship with Summer
Most romantic O.C moment EVER.
He’s us when we’re having a bad day
Ain’t no shame. Sometimes you just gotta vent for a few hours.
He invented his own holiday!
Still trying to convince our parents to celebrate Chrismukkah…
That time he was so high
Definitely one of the funniest Seth Cohen moments.
His street cred
We love everything about Seth Cohen.
In the words of Anna: “Confidence, Cohen!”
