Literary Love Searching
With it being so close to Valentine’s Day, everyone is looking for that “Special Someone” to spend their evening with. Thankfully we have a list of some of your favorite characters’ dating profiles as they also navigate the road toward love. Let us know if any of these profiles peak your interest and we can set you up with their book!
Sirius Black, the Harry Potter series:
Just got out of prison and ready to mingle! Must love of dogs and have a disdain for Severus Snape. His favorite past time is sneaking out of moonlit walks to the Shrieking Shack.
Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games trilogy:
Not looking for love, only wants supporters in the rebellion against the Capitol.
Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice:
Is looking for an accomplished woman, particularly someone with a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and all the modern languages. There must also be something in her air and manner of walking. If you’re worried about this list, please know he’s only met six women who meet his expectations.
Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes series:
Don’t worry about trying to impress him because he already knows everything about you, which might make first dates a little boring. He might also abruptly leave to investigate a homicide.
Hermione Granger, the Harry Potter series:
Correct pronunciation and articulating is vital for this relationship to work (“it’s leviOsa, not levioSA!”). She enjoys nice long walks through the library stacks and she’ll be especially impressed if you help her with S.P.E.W.
Scarlet O’Hara, Gone With the Wind:
Looking for a perfect southern gentleman, preferably someone with money. She’s used to being spoiled so be prepared to maker her the center of your universe.
Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables:
Best way to her heart is to call her “Carrots” then let her break a slate over your head.
Edward Cullen, the Twilight series:
Being 107 years old may cause a few issues, but there is something to say about his intense commitment to a serious relationship. And he sparkles, which is fun.
Jay Gatsby, The Great Gatsby:
Looking for a fresh start after his last girlfriend (who was also married) ran over someone with his car. Extensive driving records and proof of insurance are required before the first date. Must also love parties and please don’t be poor.
Tom Riddle (aka “He Who Must Not Be Name”), the Harry Potter series:
Not afraid to date someone with baggage and/or horcruxes. Must love snakes and appreciate his interest in dark magic. Will develop a temper when he doesn’t get his way, but his charming personality makes him a real catch.
Gandalf, the Lord of the Rings series:
Retired wizard looking to settle down. Prefers quiet evenings at home, but does occasionally enjoy socializing with the other hobbits in the shire. Dates may be sporadic depending on whenever the next adventure is happening.
