    I Have An Obsession With Aaron Hotchner From "Criminal Minds" And I'm Not Ashamed Of It

    You just can't resist his overall look of displeasure and disappointment.

    Okay, I would like to start this off by saying I humbly apologize and you look great today. So, my go-to activity this year, my hobby if you will, has been to binge-watch all of Criminal Minds on Netflix.

    Since I have been watching so many episodes nightly, one could say I have become attached to some characters. One of them...is Aaron Hotchner.

    I know he gets a lot of hate, but I'm actually high-key obsessed with him. I will die on this hill, dang it.

    Me to all the Hotch haters: *flips hair*.

    I'm not the only one who thinks he's great.

    can we appreciate how strong of a character aaron hotchner was?

    CBS

    Honestly, there's just something about him.

    CBS

    BRB, swooning.

    Could it be his ruthless determination to catch serial killers?

    CBS

    No bad guy slips through the grips of Aaron Hotchner (and I guess the whole BAU, whatever).

    Perhaps it's his constant furrowed brows that scream "I'm not mad, I'm disappointed" dad vibes.

    I'm pretty sure this is his permanent mood and honestly, I'm here for it.

    But sometimes he smiles and my heart just melts into a puddle.

    Obviously, he comes across as being super rigid and stiff. I could probably count on my hands how many times he showed any emotion other than pure dismay in this show.

    CBS

    Honestly, me all of 2020.

    Even though he has a very cold exterior, he really does care about his team and it shows.

    Plus, like, he's just hot okay?

    CBS

    Yeah, I said it. Sue me. (please don't sue me)

    He's just completely upped our standards for men.

    How am i supposed to find a boyfriend if my standards are hella high because of Aaron hotchner

    Why, yes, you CAN profile me literally anytime. Thanks for asking.

    CBS

    Even if you don't like him, he would still probably think you're a cool cat. He's just great like that.

    And we should note that this post isn't praising the problematic actor who portrayed the character, it's all about Hotch.

    Once again, I'm swooning.

    aaron hotchner really lives in my head rent free

    Anyways, I'm going to go back to watching Criminal Minds so I can see this hunk of an agent once again.
