Are there any traits that you find attractive in a book boyfriend, but would NEVER fly in a real life boyfriend? Would you really want to date any of your favorite book boyfriends in real life???
I love the title of this post. Because really, no I would not want to date a real life Christian Grey. No thank you. Stalkerish controlling type? Not my thing. Also, all those bad boys of NA romance, not interested in them either. I don’t need a boy with more emotional baggage than a teenage girl. Some of the swoon-worthy boys in books are just fun because they’re boys in books, not boys in reality. I don’t really want to be babysitting anyone’s crazy in real life heh. I want a more balanced and adjusted partner in life. Tell you what though, Jamie Fraser, if he were a modern-day Jamie, might be another story. He’s about perfect heh.
So let’s star with my all time fave go to book boyfriend…. Jamie Fraser. Would I really want to date him… well YES! So long as Claire was firmly out of the picture that is. Jamie is attractive, charming, kind, brave, sexy, smart, i could go on forever. Even though he is “old school” when It comes to certain things, he is fair and kind and open minded enough to make exceptions. That’s really quite nice. I would NEVER in a 1000 years want to date Christian Grey or Edward Cullen or Travis Maddox. These types of book boyfriends are nice to read about, but I would never want to get mixed up with them in real life. Book boyfriends like Lucas Maxfield, Josh Bennett, Dean Holder, Evan Mathews, Will Cooper, etc… I would LOVE to date! One I am not so sure about is Alexander Barrington from The Bronze Horseman. I really like him as a book boyfriend, but as a real life boyfriend, I think he might get on my nerves with his over protective and controlling behavior, like Christian Grey would. However, not meaning to sound like a wimpy book heroine, if the real Alex Barrington walked up to me and showed interest, I would probably be unable to resist him. Sigh. So now we know why THAT happens…
