The Type Of Person You Should Date Based On Your Favorite Harry Potter Character

Because J.K. Rowling knows you better than you know yourself.

Harry Potter

Find a person who values loyalty, integrity, and doing what is right – above all else. They might be stubborn as hell, and brave to the point of recklessness. But they will always do the right thing, no matter how difficult or scary it may be.

Ron Weasley

You need someone who will stand by you and is willing to jump into the deep end when you need them. You value people who have a strong backbone and those who are willing to act, regardless of their insecurities or self-doubt. Often, the most attractive thing you can find in another person is their willingness to fight for what they believe in, in spite of their own vulnerability.

Hermione Granger

You value intelligence, strength, and fierce loyalty in other people. You need someone who, while clever and quick, is also finely tuned into the emotions of others. You need to date someone who knows how to take care of themselves but is also extremely sensitive and empathetic.

Albus Dumbledore

The best person for you to date is someone who is self-aware, logical, and vulnerable all at the same time. You need to be around someone who can teach you and show you new ways of looking at the world, without ever being patronizing or condescending. The best fit for you is someone who is both analytical and deeply in touch with their own emotions.

Severus Snape

Needless to say, you’re always drawn to the anti-hero, the outsider, the one who comes off as cold and closed-off. You’re attracted to puzzles – people who are never-ending mysteries. The type of person you should go for is someone who, although they might be misunderstood by others, would do anything and everything for the people they love. They might have a weird way of showing it, but at the end of the day, you know they love you and you trust them with every fiber of your being.

Minerva McGonagall 

You’re all about tough love. You need someone who is going to challenge you and expect nothing but the best from you. Not because they’re holding you to unattainable standards, but because they can see the potential within you and they have nothing but confidence in the person that you are. They believe that one of the most important parts of a relationship is challenging each other to be the very best people you can be.

Sirius Black

You’re always going to go for the good-hearted bad ass. You’ll get bored quickly if you date someone calm, collected, and rational. You need to be with someone who is constantly chasing after adventure and excitement, without ever losing site of what’s most important to them. They might occasionally be somewhat rash, and their daredevil attitude can get them into trouble. But you’ll be okay as long as you’re in a relationship where you can keep each other on track without ever crushing each other’s energetic spirits.

Ginny Weasley

You need someone funny, lively, and independent. Somebody who’s tough and self-reliant, who knows what they want. You’re not usually attracted to overly sensitive or emotional types of people, and are better off with someone who knows how to be loving without ever getting mushy or sappy.

Luna Lovegood

You’re attracted to dreamy, calm, curious types. Your best match is someone who’s always learning new things and discovering new ideas, and then sharing them with you. They might veer away from “the norm,” but being with someone interesting and different from you is exactly what you need.

Neville Longbottom

You’re attracted to people who can surprise you, and you especially admire unexpected strength and bravery. You’re always most fascinated when you find someone who you think you have figured out, until they throw everything you thought you knew about them out the window. You need to be with someone who’s constantly surprising you with their courage, nerve, and strong sense of self.

Remus Lupin

You’re best paired with someone patient, understanding, and level-headed. You always find yourself gravitating towards people who have been through a lot and have maintained a compassionate way of living in spite of their suffering. Your ideal significant other is somebody kind, wise, and brave – regardless of how shameful or insecure they may feel at times.

Nymphadora Tonks

You always lean towards people with light, easygoing, friendly personalities. Your ideal pairing would be someone who has a bubbly and comforting presence, but more importantly, someone who is capable of looking past “flaws” and finding the good and the beauty in anybody.

Fred and George Weasley

You need someone who is capable of making you laugh and looking at the bright side, no matter how dire the situation may be. Look for a significant other who, while silly and good-natured, also has a heart of gold and a solid understanding of their priorities in life.

Rubeus Hagrid

You need to date a teddy bear. Somebody who is rough around the edges, but has a soft and sensitive interior. Your ideal significant other is someone who makes you feel safe and protected, but who needs you just as much as you need them, regardless of what impressions that their “rough” exterior may give off.

Draco Malfoy

You may very well end up with someone whom you initially despised. Someone who seemed arrogant and entitled, but may in fact be very lost and vulnerable. You tend to go for people with a cold exterior, who ultimately just need love and guidance and a little help figuring out where they truly belong. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
