True Blood Characters Dominate List of “Dateable Vampires”

July 4, 2010 by  

Not that this will come as any surprise to Truebies, but in a recent list of “10 Vampires More Dateable than Edward Cullen,” three True Blood characters make the cut. The Gloss listed reasons why Bill, Eric, and Pam, along with 7 other vampire characters of film and television, would make better companions than the emo sparkle king of Twilight.

You should want to date sexy Southern gentleman Bill Compton because he has “a heart of gold as far as human women go. Besides, if he can roll Sookie’s name that way, imagine what he could do with yours.”

Eric Northman is another excellent choice because he’s in a position of power as a Sheriff of Louisiana, and he can fly. Another reason listed:

Are you perhaps visually impaired? Because I don’t even understand why I should have to justify this one.

For men, Pam would be great date:

She understands the value of a good pair of high heels without seeming like she’s memorized every episode of Sex and the City. And if you kill someone she can help you “go to the hypothetical hardware store and buy a theoretical chainsaw.”

Other vampires included who would make better dates than Edward Cullen are Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Damon from The Vampire Diaries, and Lestat from Interview with the Vampire. It’s worth mentioning, though, that no movie or show has more than one vampire on the list except for True Blood, as it should be!

    Pam is a lesbian…. Just saying. 😀

    • Actually, she’s not. Pam is bi.

        Bauer plays Pam the sidekick of Eric and the screener of Fangtasia. (Alan) Ball said he thinks Pam has a “lesbian vibe”, explaining further, “I don’t know that that’s all she is, but she certainly does seem to appreciate the women.”

        That being said most vampires are portrayed as being “bi” or at least open minded, but I definately believe that at this moment in Pam’s timeline she’s preferring the ladies.

    Thank you Jane and I agree, you don’t have to go into the reasons to date Eric, they are self evident and self-explanatory. Where was he when I was dating (many years ago that is)??? Glad our team is finally getting the recognition they deserve. 🙂

    Thankyou for posting!! Nothing against Twlight but I adore the title “More Datable Than Edward Cullen”. I love the part about Eric and not even having to go into the reasons because it’s obvious!! This is the second time our boys have trumped Edward and it’s wonderful. As we say in my part of the south, go on with your bad selves Bill, Eric and Pam!!
