Would You Rather Date Jim Halpert or Edward Cullen?

The following post was written by little4blondie, who posted it on OnSugar blog Aimless Fusion.

Even though the first Twilight movie came out several years ago, there are still millions of girls who spend their time fantasizing about Edward Cullen, a mysterious vampire who falls in love with a seventeen-year-old girl. They say he's the perfect guy, with his good looks, rock-hard abs, and the fact that he would risk his life to protect the girl he loves. I have to admit that those qualities would make a guy pretty perfect. But, there are also those people who hear the word "vampire" and roll their eyes, saying that anyone who spends their time dreaming about a fictional character needs to get out more.

Girls these days need a guy closer to reality, someone who has the qualities that they should look for in a real guy. Those qualities are: smart, funny, outgoing, sweet, and thoughtful — someone like Jim Halpert from The Office. Yes, I know that he is not real as well, but if girls are looking for their dream guy then they should search for a guy more like him. Throughout the many episodes of The Office, we see Jim constantly doing nice things for Pam, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out that he likes her, despite the fact that she's engaged. That probably would have stopped many guys in their tracks, but Jim is not like any guys. He never stopped caring for Pam.

Now, here's a question for you. Would you rather have a smoking hot vampire or a super understanding, sweet guy? Let me be more clear. Would you rather have a Jim to your Pam or an Edward to your Bella?

Halpert. No question.

My brain just exploded. Is it wrong to say Jim's personality with Edward's looks/money/immortality? Yes, yes it is.

Jim. Edward's brooding and possessiveness would annoy me after awhile. I need someone like Jim who takes life a little less seriously. Not to mention someone who has interests other than me. Edward's obssession with Bella is boring. At some point, I'd get tired of being the complete center of someone's universe. I'd miss my friends and outside life too much.

Just to be contrary, I'll take Edward. He's got nothing to do all day but adore his g'friend.

Jim Halpert because he is one of the best guy characters on TV. I like Robert Pattinson but Edward Cullen is a weird, possessive character. Clingy-ness is not sexy.

Sorry...Jim gives off the friend vibe for me, I'd never be able to treat him as anything more. I'd take an Edward - but that's not to say I'm anything like a Bella.

Really? This is a question? Would I rather have a possessive crazy guy who watches me sleep ... or a friend-first, caring, thoughtful normal dude?
