Top 10 Fictional Male Characters


These boys have made me weak in the knees, all for very different reasons. These boys have either proved that they are absolutely amazing for their romance with the character or simply because they were so incredibly kind that I believed they deserved a spot.


1. Leo Palamino

What is He In? The Right Kind of Wrong.


Leo Palamino is honestly, one of those people that is probably very, very biased. But hear me out, if you have even seen the Right Kind of Wrong, it is a movie about a guy who meets this girl on her wedding day and starts to pursue her. During this time, he is also dealing with his ex wife who wrote a blog about him and became famous. Leo Palamino is many things, he is a writer (which makes him ten times more attractive to me!), he is also determined, a romantic, a believer, and is sincere.

He remembers things too, which is something that I find absolutely sweet. I have always been a firm believer that it is more romantic if he remembers their favorite flower and he does. While yes, he fell for the wrong girl (technically) , he is absolutely amazing.

Attractive, Writer, Determined, Believer, Kind, Sweet, Sarcastic, Funny.


Swoonable Quotes?

“Writing, and the pursuit of a woman, like any impossible dream, are not about immediate results. They’re about telling the truth.”

2. Noah

What is He In? The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks.


Noah, Noah, Noah. Noah is honestly every girl’s dream guy and the only reason why he is not number one is because I think Leo’s love for writing makes him 100% better.

Noah is the man that is sexy, strong, confident, dependable, and absolutely is amazing when in love. He never gives up and I absolutely adore that.

Some of the stuff he says, by the way, is enough to make you swoon for him.

Swoonable Quotes?

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”

“You are, and always have been, my dream.”

“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ”

3.  Logan Huntzberger

What is He In? Gilmore Girls


Now, Logan Huntzberger may require a bit more of an explanation. First you have to look at his level of attractiveness. You have his beautiful blonde hair and face.

Then you have his money (which is a lot.) This fact is great but not why he is on this list.

He is on this list because he pushes Rory. He pushed Rory to step out of her well created box. He had the level of intelligence (which lets admit, smart guys are hot) that rivals her own.

He had the upbringing that throughout the entire show proved she desired and he took her out of his shell.

You also have his amazing humor and sarcasm that one could never forget about.


Swoonable Quotes?

“If I could, I’d also like to say a few words about my girlfriend of the last 3 years. You amaze me, Rory Gilmore. Everyday, everything that you do, everything that you are. This past year I learned that I don’t know a whole lot more than I thought I knew, if that makes sense. I’m sorry, I’m a little bit nervous and I didn’t think I would be. What I’m trying to say is, I don’t know a lot. But I know that I love you, and I want to be with you.”

“Rory, you’re special.”

4. Jack Dawson.

What is He In? Titanic.


Jack Dawson, while he didn’t have the money that Logan had, he had a romantic personality.

One of those personalities that lived and breathed romance. He fell in love easily, he was an artist. He saw the beautiful things in everything good.

Jack Dawson is the kind of guy who will save a girl from jumping off the boat because it is simply his personality. He was funny and kind and attractive. He is an optimist and paired with Leonardo Dicaprio’s looks, he earned himself a spot on this list.


Swoonable Quotes?

“I can’t. I’m involved now. You let go, and I’m, I’m ‘onna have to jump in there after you.”

“Well, yes, ma’am, I do… I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.”

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you. And I’m thankful for that, Rose. I’m thankful. You must do me this honor. Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.”

“Never let go.”

5. Chuck Bass

What is He In? Gossip Girl


Chuck Bass is Blair Waldorf’s love interest in Gossip Girl.

In the beginning, he is a major… womanizer but slowly and as he falls in love, he becomes caring, kind, courteous. He listens, he is protective.

He is the kind of guy you want on your side when you’re battling whatever war you’re fighting.


Swoonable Quotes?

“In the face of true love, you don’t just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you to.”

“Three words, eight letters. Say it, and I’m yours.”

“But I am me, and you are you. We’re Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck. The worst thing you’ve ever done, the darkest thought you ever had, I will stand by you through anything. Because I love you”

6. Barney Stinson

What is He In? How I Met Your Mother


Barney Stinson, similar to Chuck Bass, begins as a womanizer. During this time, I would never want anything to do with him however it is when we get to when he is in love.
It is when he is dating Robin that I realize how much of an amazing boyfriend he is.

His words that were so often used to pick up girl were now being used on one girl, flirting with her constantly and in love. He is loyal once he is tied down.

He is romantic, kind, sweet, funny, and downright amazing. If you’re the right girl and if you are, you are in for one hell of a romance.

Swoonable Quotes?

“You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.”

“Remember when you told me to stop messing around and go get the girl. Well, check it. I got her.”

“For a long time, deep down I felt sort of, broken? But I don’t feel that way anymore. Robin, along with the idea that vengeance will soon be mine, has made me 100% awesome.”

7. Augustus Waters

What is He In? Fault in Our Stars.


Augustus Waters..

Augustus Waters is on this list because he is absolutely amazing even though there is no way I would ever, ever go out with him.

Unless I happened to meet the Augustus Waters without cancer.

But let’s not talk about that, Augustus Waters is caring.

He remembers that you’re addicted to some book. Hell, he even reads the book just so he can have a connection with Hazel.

He is also incredibly selfless, doing anything he can just to make Hazel happy.

Who wouldn’t swoon over a caring and selfless guy?


Swoonable Quotes?

“Maybe ‘okay’ will be our ‘always”

“I’ll fight it. I’ll fight it for you. Don’t you worry about me, Hazel Grace. I’m okay. I’ll find a way to hang around and annoy you for a long time.”

“I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

8. Patch Capriano.

What is He In? Hush, Hush.


Patch is one of those rebellious, hard to hate and hard to love characters.

Honestly, he is like one of those guys that requires a large amount of skill to write. Simply because his character is so easy to write going good or going bad.

Patch is romantic, sexy, and amazing.

But mostly, it is the stuff he says.

The below list is full of things he has said but it is not the only things on this list.


Swoonable Quotes?

“I love you more than I think I should.”

“But if I hadn’t fallen, I wouldn’t have met you.”

“Angel… I don’t think you understand the lengths I would go to if it means keeping you here with me.’

9. Alex Karev

What is He In? Grey’s Anatomy.


Alex Karev, like many of the other boys on this list, started out as a womanizer.

I have recently realized that womanizers can make amazing boyfriends once they find the right girl but the key is that they HAVE to find the right girl.

Alex Karev went through a lot of traumatic events, from Izzie to Rebecca to Izzie (again!) and so on and so forth.

Every single time, he stood back up and fought harder.

He was a born fighter.

Throughout the hell that is Grey’s Anatomy, he goes through a lot and every time he still manages to stand up.

He falls in love, he knows how to handle your shit, and he is amazing.

Who doesn’t love a guy who is willing to deal with your crazy?


Swoonable Quotes?

“It’s all supposed to be with you. I thought you got that. I didn’t think I needed to say it. So when I say I can’t say no to my friend, it doesn’t mean I’m saying no to you.”

“Look at me. You got me. I’m not going anywhere except home with you.”

10. Dean Winchester

What is He In? Supernatural.



Dean Winchester is the older of the Winchester brother and when I say he has gone to hell and back, I mean it.

There a lot of reasons why I think he would be an amazing boyfriend even though we don’t really get to see him in love.

He has a lot of the personality traits that girls would fall in love with.

He is a family man, so loyal that he has never left his brother even though he desires to be happy.

He is loyal.
He is kind.
He is sweet.
He is funny.
He has a good taste in music.

He is Dean Winchester and even though he is a workoholic, we all know that we would so date him if given the chance.

Swoonable Quotes?

“I just wanted to let you know, that when I picture myself happy, it’s with you.”
