8 best imaginary boyfriends from Canada

Canadians make the best (imaginary) boyfriends. Proof? These eight guys:

1. Ryan Gosling
Why: Street fight breaker-upper, real-life good Samaritan (he saved a woman from being hit by a taxi in New York),he has two MTV award nominations for best kiss to his name. Lips. Whatever.

2. Ryan Reynolds
Why: In possession of a distractingly well-muscled torso, he holds his own when acting opposite Denzel Washington and avian-marine hybrid aliens. He seems like he’d be fun to hang out with in real life.

3. Will Arnett
Why: Devoted Leafs and Jays fan (clearly a glass-half-full kind of guy), he has spot-on deadpan humour, very pretty eyes.

4. Seth Rogen
Why: Might actually be just like the characters he plays: funny, unpretentious, slightly vulgar.

5. Justin Bieber
Why: Squeaky clean rep, has more Klout than U.S. President Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama, knows howto rock a purple hoodie. Guaranteed to garner parental approval, if that’s an issue.

6. Drake
Why: Not afraid of feelings, he dresses quite well, considering; looks like he throws a good party (if the HYFR video is anything to go by).

7. Joshua Jackson
Why: Handsome, he played both Charlie in The Mighty Ducks and Pacey on Dawson’s Creek; he has clearly found the magic formula for perfectly scruffy facial hair.

8. Taylor Kitsch
Why: Friday Night Lights, mostly.
