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!
