Thirsty People Reveal Which TV Characters They'd Most Like To Date

Most likely it was someone you saw in print or film media, since that is what the past three generations have had the most exposure to. (Though it could have been Sheila in first grade, who knows.) Well, you're not alone. So many have had their sexual awakening from fictional characters.

Redditor highzenberrg asked:

If you could date any tv character ever who would it be?

Here were the thirsty answers.

Autobots, Mobilize

Optimus Prime. He seems like a good provider.

Well....

Jared from Silicon Valley. He's adorable.

Challenges

I like a challenge: Elliott Reed, from Scrubs.

The Day Of The Doctor

Amy Pond was when I realized I like red heads.

Karen Gillan is stunning - finding out she played Nebula blew my mind, as it obviously looks nothing like her. Also she nixes her accent like a boss - I think she's cuter with it though.

New Programming

Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Probably with the emotion chip.

Dork Love

Kaylee from Firefly. Super cute but not intimidatingly supermodel hot, kind of a dork which is basically a requirement for dating me, and I would be impressed with her engineering skills and stuff too.

Euphemisms

I don't know if I'd use the term "date" but Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Torchwood.

Or Shane from the L word.

Wholesome

Supergirl. I would totally take her out for ice cream and pot stickers

Pecs

Dean Winchester from Supernatural, I'll survive any apocalyptic situations.

A List

Jim Hopper from Stranger Things. Or Andy Dwyer from Parks and Rec.

If we can expand to movies, give me Kylo Ren or Thranduil.

Parks And Rec

Benjamin Wyatt:

Nerdy, charming, and perfect.

Want to squeeze his butt!

A Curse That's Worth It

Jon Snow. I would probably die a tragic death but hopefully the sex would be hot and maybe I'd get to kill a Lannister or a Bolton?

Tight Pants

Hellooooo Captain Mal aka Captain Tight Pants

Or Broody McSexy Pants aka 2015 - present Ross Poldark.

Or Drogo of course

Dangerous Boys

Logan from Veronica Mars. What a great show. And Kristen Bell is such a cutie too.

Lynch Is Laughing

Agent Cooper from Twin Peaks. When I was a youngster, I was a Bobby Briggs type gal. Now as an adult I can see that it's truly Agent Cooper who would be a damn fine cup of coffee.

I would also like to select Major Briggs for my mother. As a kid, I preferred the All-State Insurance man to be my stepfather, and I would still be happy with either.

Wait, I made this about dads instead of boyfriends. All my ex-boyfriends are grimacing knowingly...

House Of Dragons

Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons

Multiple Exposures

Deborah Ann Woll

Take your pick...

Daredevil, Punisher, True Blood

I'd take any variation although the True Blood one may be a little weird but her character was sweet and innocent, minus the blood sucking.

Lightspeed

General Hammond from "Stargate: SG-1". Oh, that deep sexy voice!

New Flame

Maybe unpopular but Karen from the office. She's not right for Jim but I honestly believe she's the biggest catch in the show

Mystery

Harvey Specter from Suits. I like my men tough on the outside but sweet/loyal on the inside, and also smart.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

The past year brought about much anxiety and it's been a challenge to find the light in what has felt like perpetual darkness.

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
