Undateable Book Characters

Posted: Updated:

We've surely fallen victim to dating people who we weren't well matched with. Hasn't everyone? But at least we've never dated murderers, drug addicts or men who think they're giant bugs. Today on Twitter, Random House asked readers to weigh in on the most undateable characters in literature using the hashtag #undateableinlit.

The responses had us laughing hysterically. Characters we'd previously thought dashing instantly became undesirable. Take, for example, "Keeping your ex in an attic." Well, when you put it that way...

Here are some of our favorites so far for the least dateable characters in literature. Can you guess who they are? (We admit that there are several repeat characters because the tweets themselves were so hilarious).

Who do YOU think is the most undateable book character? Let us know in the comments!
