8 John Green Male Characters That Are Thirsty AF
“Thank you, John Green, for setting the bar for unrealistic romantic dreams.” We can bet big money you’ve said that before. We’re not gonna lie, so have we. Like, who hasn’t completely swooned over The Fault in Our Stars‘ Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) and his adorable one-liners, or totally pined for Quentin Jacobsen (Nat Wolff) in Paper Towns because of his devotion to Margo Roth Spiegelman?
Butttt… We think it’s time to finally take a step back and see the bigger picture here, people. Good ol’ Gus was concerned with checking one thing off his to-do list: losing his V-card. And, while Q’s quest to find Margo may seem heroic in theory, it’s actually creepy and borderline stalking. What. The. Eff. John?!
Whatever happened to old-fashioned courting and puppy love? We bet you’re re-thinking all those characters you fell in love with during your initial read. Yup, so did we, which is why we put together the eight John Green guys that are seriously thirsty AF:
Gus was a playa from the start. He had all the right lines and knew just what to say to win over Hazel, mostly because the guy would not take no for an answer; there's persistent and then there's pushy. LBR, Gus kinda knew how to play up the sympathy card for Hazel; like, was it really necessary for him to draw that chart depicting the small group of 17-year-old virgins with one leg? Hmm... Looks like Gus was only concerned with getting it in.
