Redditor bitsAndBites01 offers an intriguing discussion topic:
Ladies: Name a fictional male (book, TV or movie) who encapsulates as many of of the qualities you'd like to see in a man.
That's a great way to look at relationships and what you want out of them. Peevesie offers an answer from the Harry Potter series:
Arthur Weasley (an age appropriate version) - he is strong, kind, brave, caring, loving, capable, curious, respectful, intelligent, responsible, and so many other things. He clearly didn't have a dead bedroom considering the number of off spring. He was an excellent father who nurtured his kids with a gentle and firm hand. He was an equalist. He has his faults but is by far the most real family man I have encountered in fiction. Molly was super lucky
RockOnChicago wants Indy:
When I was little I wanted to marry Indiana Jones, and that pretty much still stands today.
HtheOtherAlex thinks of The Princess Bride:
Unsure why Westley/ The Man in Black/ Dread Pirate Roberts hasn't been mentioned yet...
Pirate + true love + kiss that blows away the best five kisses since the invention of the kiss + "As you wish" + eyes like the sea after a storm = Yes, yes, very much please. Yup.
For me it's his principles, and the fact that he's so gentle and emotionally insightful. IDK good single dads just do it for me. His brilliance and sense of humor are gravy.
Little Lion continues on that theme about Atticus Finch:
Oh, yes, there are a lot more. His compassion, his drive, his defiance of stereotypes about men (and humans) at that time... sigh
He's so dreamy.
Mypsychoticself has her eyes on Hannibal Lecter:
Hannibal Lecter. He's polite, intelligent, and a good cook. There's the small problem of eating people, but everyone has their flaws.
