If you lie awake at night, clutching the stuffed bear you’ve had since birth and wondering why you’re still single, it’s Jane Austen you need to take it up with. Only you can’t, because she’s dead. If we could only crack time travel we would go back 200 years and tell her that Pride and Prejudice ruined all our chances of finding everlasting love and happiness.
Because yes, it probably is wrong and slightly creepy to fantasise about a fictional character but Mr Darcy stole our hearts with his brooding stare, wet breeches and aloof hotness and now no man will ever measure up.
Do you know any who can ride a horse like Darcy, admire your piano forte and rescue your family from reputational ruin all while being tall and handsome with a noble air? Nope, didn’t think so. See you in therapy.

Personality: the ultimate hero
Attainability: Married to Elizabeth Bennet. And fictional, so could be tricky
