Marry Date or Dump: White Bearded Wizards

1580259808_cfb823f2fe

Okay, so maybe Gandalf, Dumbledore, and Merlin are all considered to be father figures and not romantic heroes. And perhaps old wrinkly men and long, long white beards aren’t your thing. But if the BBC’s Merlin has taught us anything, it’s that these old wizards were once young and they could be pretty cute. So, as per usual, let us know in the comments who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump when faced with these three magical contenders. You can decide based on your favorite book or film, by who seemed cooler when they were younger, or even who you think looks the best in a pointed hat. You can also say that you want to “just stay friends” with all of them. But isn’t it more fun to buckle down an choose?

  1. Marry Merlin, Date Gandalf, Dump Dumbledore (the later, only because he’s gay and not interested in women — it’s in the books). Now if Harry Dresden were in the mix in place of Dumbledore . . . that’d be tough!

    • OoooOOOh nice call on Harry Dresden! Yeah I have basically the same reaction about dumbledore. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Marry Gandalf and go with him to the undying lands, who wouldn’t want to live among Elves for all eternity. Date Merlin and just be friends with Dumbledore (him might try and have me sacrifice myself for the greater good).

  3. Marry Merlin, doesn’t he get younger, not older? Date Gandolf – fireworks Whoo Hoo Martha! Dumbledore is dead, not a fun time. Gay men can be a fun date, but not dead ones.
