7 Literary Characters Who Are Definitely Not Husband Material

November 5, 2017

In a world of online and app dating, I thought it would be funny to rustle up a collection of fictional men for whom I would most definitely swipe left:-)

 

So, in no particular order of unsuitability, here we go...

 

 

Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë)

Broody in his case should translate as creepy, Tom Hardy or no Tom Hardy. Pass.

 

 

Dracula (Dracula by Bram Stoker)

Not all vampires are Robert Pattinson...;-)
 

 

Romeo (Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare)

Obsessive teenager with a violent streak, no thank you.

 

 

Joffrey Baratheon (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin)

Ok, I admit, Joffrey is another class of horrible, but I couldn't not include him.

 

 

Tom Buchanan (The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald)

Smarmy, sleazy and mustachioed, three strikes!

 

 

Oliver Dimmesdale (The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne)

Look up spineless in the dictionary and Oliver Dimmesdale's picture will appear.

 

 

Voldemort (The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling)

Self-explanatory.
