Here’s What Kind Of Girlfriend You Are, Based On Your Hogwarts House

Gryffindor

Bold, adventurous, playful, and ambitious, a Gryffindor girl is a girlfriend who’s a true ride or die, partner in crime kind of girl. She’s not afraid to challenge you or put you in your place, but more than anything she’s ready to be right there by your side fighting with you. A Gryffindor might KNOW when you’re wrong, and it will definitely make her blood boil until she’s able to point it out, but she’s not going to just drop you because of your differences.

The Gryffindor girl is the kind of girlfriend who pushes you. She’s always there with the next exciting idea or the next adventure with her hand extended, enticing you to come along and just jump with her. She’s the kind of girl that a lot of people call crazy or maybe a wild child, because she’s very much the “leap before she looks” kind of personality. But, that natural impulsivity and no fear persona means she’s unshakeable. She’s unafraid. She’s impenetrable. When she gets knocked down, she bounces right back up. And if you happen to get knocked down, she’ll get you back up too.

She’s going to drive you up the wall sometimes with her need for attention and tendency towards being a little ADD, but eventually, you figure out how to balance her. You’ll keep her closer to the ground and less flighty and more realistic, she’ll keep you guessing and chasing your goals. You’ll never be bored with a Gryffindor.

Hufflepuff

Hufflepuffs have an unnecessary and unfounded reputation for being bland, passive, and boring. But none of this is true. You’ll never find a more patient, kind, and loyal partner than when you’re with a girl who is a Hufflepuff. A girl who’s a Hufflepuff knows exactly who she is, and isn’t worried about what anyone else says. She doesn’t change who she is just to make herself seem more interesting or more spicy because she’s happy just the way she is. She’s more interested in her books, in her hobbies, in her close circle of friend, and in being a person who she’s proud of than worrying about what someone’s random opinion has to say about her.

A Hufflepuff is the practical, level-headed partner that everyone (whether they admit it or not) needs in their life. She cares deeply for the people who she surrounds herself with and just wants everyone to be happy and content. Natural peacekeepers, natural caretakers, and someone who is so happy seeing OTHER’S happiness — you’ll never feel more at home than when you’re with your Hufflepuff gal.

Hufflepuff girlfriends are warm, kind, and have no problem putting other people ahead of herself. She’s the girlfriend who texts you good morning to make you smile, and watches sports with you even though she doesn’t even know who’s playing. She might be a bit passive, and need a reminder that it’s okay to stick up for herself or speak up every now and again. But she’s a forever kind of girl, a true partner. And you’re lucky to have her.

Ravenclaw

Ravenclaws are curious, tenacious, and driven, making them the quintessential intellectual girlfriend. She’s never going to worry about being sexy, trendy, or about frivolity — she’s much, much deeper than that. Purposeful, introspective, and wise beyond her years, dating a Ravenclaw is definitely going to be…a challenge.

A Ravenclaw isn’t the type of girl who is “go with the flow” or “devil may care.” She’s big picture, methodical, and knows exactly what she wants out of life. The fact of the matter is, a Ravenclaw knows she doesn’t need you. She’s happy on her own and wildly (albeit quietly) independent. She’s the kind of girl who you have to chase, have to pursue, and most importantly, have to be ready to listen to in order to figure out how to be with her.

Ravenclaws don’t settle. In her own life, with herself, with her career, frankly with anything. She wants the best, and won’t accept anything less than. She constantly going to be pushing herself, and you, to be better than before. Sometimes that pushing is going to be overwhelming and stressful and intimidating, but it’s not coming from a place of discontent or malice. She just has this innate ability to see the big picture, and she wants it to be as perfect as possible for you both.

Slytherin

Slytherin women are whip-smart, often misunderstood, stubborn, and instinctive leaders. She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. She has her shit together and knows for a fact that she knows what’s best, so when she sees something she wants she’s going to pursue it until she gets it. Chasing a Slytherin isn’t for the faint at heart, because it’ll be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever attempt. She’s a force to be reckoned with and because of such, people are drawn to her like a magnet. But, she’s selective. So she’s choosy about who she lets into her weird little world.

Dating a Slytherin is going to have a certain amount of push and pull involved. Because she’s a natural leader (headstrong, boisterous, and incredibly sharp) she has trouble relinquishing control. She leans towards secrecy and self-sufficency because she’s likely incredibly used to being on her own, which isn’t a bad thing when you’re single, but is something she’ll have to figure out in order to be an effectively communicative and open partner to someone else.

Slytherins get a bad rap for being deceitful and in your face; but some of these traits will play to your advantage in a relationship. She’s unafraid of confrontation so you’ll never have moments of wondering why she’s pissed off, she’s always going to be on your side and you’ll know you can trust her to have your back, and let’s face it: it’s fun being in on someone’s little secrets. Even when it’s just playing games with people. (Especially Gryffindors.) TC mark
