23 Reasons Why Nick Miller Is the Perfect Boyfriend

If you are an avid fan of New Girl, you are probably obsessed with Jake Johnson’s hilarious character, Nick Miller. The more I watch the show, the more Nick seems like the perfect guy; not only is he passionate and kind, but he also has a nonchalant personality and an adorable face. Need more convincing? Her Campus UCSD takes you through a list of “23 Reasons Why Nick Miller Is the Perfect Boyfriend”.


1. He does what he loves.

He got into law school, passed the Bar exam, and is a qualified lawyer. Despite the conventional choice, he followed his passion and became a bartender. Nothing is hotter than a man who does what he loves and isn’t a slave to money.

2. He has the same aspirations as you.

Trying to eat less donuts? Sex and sandwiches? We are on the same page.

3. He’s philosophical and emotional​ at the same time.

Nick will be there for you whether you are having an existential crisis or simply need someone to talk to on a bad day. He’ll hold your hand and cry with you.

4. He’s a dog person.

Nick or Schmidt? This decision is ruff, but we would still go with Nick.

5. He is honest with his feelings.

No passive aggression and no games. Nick will tell you how he feels.

6. He shares your hobbies.

He would be down to binge watch New Girl all day.

Whenever you need him to, Nick will leap, figurative and literally, for you.
