Do people often tell you that you have unrealistic expectations in terms of the men you want to date? Do people keep telling you that they stopped making the kind of men you’re looking for a long time back? Do you find yourself swooning over a gentleman like Darcy or the mighty Thor? It is not really your fault. They are irresistible and appealing.
Here are 64 men from the fictional world we should get to meet in real life :
1. Aragorn – The Lord of The Rings
The Strider has the sort of personality that can keep one awake through nights after meeting him, pining to meet him again.
2. Peeta – The Hunger Games Trilogy
His eyes spell his love for Katniss. The kind of love which makes it possible for him to give up on himself to help her.
3. William Thacker – Notting Hill

He might not be the most handsome man on the block but he is the funniest and the most loyal. His awkward humor can light up any day with ease. Irresistible!
