The Fictional Guy of the Week: Gilbert Blythe

The Fictional Guy of the Week is Gilbert Blythe!

Where He's From:

Anne of Green Gables (Confession: I've never actually read the books but I've seen the first two movies and I loved them!)

His Story:

What do we know about Gilbert Blythe? He's educated. He wants to be a doctor (right?). He likes Anne Shirley. And he's stuck in a tug of war with Anne that is typical of angsty boy/girl relationships.

There. That about sums it up. Maybe if I read the books I'd know more. But for now, I'm content with just basking in the glow of Gilbert Blythe's smile.

Why He's FGW:

What wouldn't I love about a boy who winks at a complete stranger?

As usual, I love the angst between Gilbert Blythe and Anne Shirley. I mean, a boy who likes the girl when the girl is determined to not like the boy. I love it! Even when he's a jerk, you can't help but understand that its the games that boys and girls play when they like each other.

He's just an all around good guy. At least I think so. He's willing to help an extremely stubborn Anne Shirley. He's educated. He's a hard worker. He's just a little bit dreamy... in a fictional way.

Okay, as usual when writing my FGW's I find myself flummuxed and uncertain about where I'm going with this. And then I remember where I'm going with this... the picture portion!

So, we won't waste anymore time. Pictures!!

You can just tell that those dimples are itching to show themselves.

Dear Gilbert, you make my heart happy. Please look at me this way.

I must admit that I miss his unruly hair. But I still love the dimples!

Despite his ridiculous hat, I can't help but melt at the appearance of those dimples.

I couldn't resist a kissing picture. Can you blame me?


Until Next Time,

The Hopeless Romantic
