Supernatural quiz: 'Warm Bodies' zombies, 'Twilight' vampires and more
It’s time for Mystery Date: Supernatural Edition! While the whole vampire craze may be drawing to a close (Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out on DVD March 2) 2013 is still on track to be a huge year for those that love the supernatural. Apologies to viewers who enjoy their zombies more in the style of Walking Dead, but it’s looking like the biggest trend is more romance, less death and destruction. Warm Bodies, in theaters today, centers around a love story between zombie R. and a human, Julie. It’s a great read – and surprisingly, in between the killing and the brain eating, a wonderfully original and charming boy-ish meets girl tale.
Which got us thinking: Readers probably have their personal favorites when it comes to the guys that portray these vampires, zombies, and werewolves (Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Alexander Skarsgard, etc.) But what if we took the actors out of it? Based solely on the plotlines in the current books/movies/television shows, which supernatural should you, a “normal” human with a slight love on danger, attempt to begin a relationship with? The answer may surprise you – or help you justify a couple all-too-real conversations about an alleged hypothetical situation (ahem).

Mostly As: Have you considered dating… a zombie?
For those who gobbled up the book form of Warm Bodies much like a brain, you already know that dating a zombie can have many benefits for a strong communicator. Speaking primarily in only in one- or two-word sentences, you’re never going to have a deep conversation. But – at least in Isaac Marion’s mythology – zombies are protective, caring and honest to a fault. Things could be worse.
Mostly Bs: Have you considered dating… a vampire?
Vampires have their drawbacks: forget about hanging out in the sun (unless you have a special ring!), but there are plenty of bonuses. Just make sure you don’t forget to formally invite them into your house. Sexy and protective, you will have to have your guard up sometimes — between Vampire Diaries and Twilight, it seems you can’t pal around with vamps without being turned into one.
Mostly Cs: Have you considered dating… a werewolf?
Whether you’ve been eying the Teen Wolf crew or are a holdout from the Team Jacob era, werewolves can certainly make for a fun boyfriend — just ask Alcide. Sure, the whole imprinting thing can be dicey, but if you dodge that, you’ve got a muscular and strong built-in handyman who loves a walk on the wild side.
Mostly Ds: Have you considered dating… a wizard?
The most human-like of all the supernaturals, you should be congratulated for picking the significant other whom you won’t have to be afraid to bring home to your parents. With no outward deviations, wizards are able to perfectly blend in to regular society, but their magical core ensures that they are not quite like the rest of us Muggles.
Not seeing any type worth pursuing? Never fear. This summer – and the influx of angels happening with the release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – may be more your speed.
