Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cobie Smulders & Others

Land of Punt has complied a list of female characters, currently on television, that you wouldn’t mind being stuck in a relationship with (from a heterosexual male’s point of view). Yes, we know the word “stuck” implies a relationship is a bad thing but that’s only because it is.

This is a serious compilation and L.O.P. has tried very hard to make this survey cerebral and not carnal. If it was strictly carnal, than it would have included Blake Lively, Minka Kelly and Cassi Davis.

These characters below are women you wouldn’t mind spending extended periods of time with, i.e. cohabitation. This qualification eliminates several well known television characters. Also age is a factor. The characters couldn’t be too young (everyone from Gossip Girl) nor could they be too old (everyone one from Desperate Housewives).

For instance, Olivia Benson from Law and Order: SVU is left out because she carries around far too much emotional baggage. Liz Lemon from 30 Rock fails to make the list because she’s too messy and morally bankrupt. Christine Campbell from The New Adventures of Old Christine was rejected due to being highly unstable and for her lack of cooking and cleaning skills.

Male television characters you wouldn’t mind being stuck in a relationship with is in development.
