Which Star Wars Character Would Be Your Ideal Man?


Finding the right Star Wars manBy James Preece

With the new Star Wars film about to hit cinemas, I thought it might be fun to give my dating expert thoughts on the men from the series. Some of them are the subject of many childhood crushes, while others could be the stuff of nightmares. Each offers something completely different so there is someone for everyone.

Imagine, in a galaxy far far away, that you might want to date them. Which one would be your perfect match? Here’s my tips and advice for choosing the right man for you.

Luke Skywalker

Luke is a nice guy, but can quickly step things up if necessary. He tried to see the good in everyone, no matter how bad the situation. If you want a friend as well as a partner then Luke would be a great choice.

Hans Solo

Move over Christian Grey, Hans was the original Alpha Male. He’ll rescue his damsel in distress and make your laugh with his sarcastic sense of humour. Deep down he’s compassionate and a little lonely, but he’ll never admit this to anyone.


Fussy, but proud, C-3PO is a loyal companion. He tends to be a bit worrisome from time to time but he’ll never tire of listening to your problems. Most importantly, he’ll do everything he possibly can to satisfy your needs and make you happy.

Find your star wars man


R2 is a cute little thing. He’s dash around and is constantly chirpy, meaning you’ll always have fun with him. Of all the Star Wars characters, he’s the one that most people want to spend time with as he’s the most loveable.


Date him you must. What he lacks in height, he more than makes up for in intelligence. He’s extremely compassionate and will focus on you and nothing else. He’ll use the force to show you how wonderful life could be with him on your side.

Darth Vader

The original tall dark and handsome movie star. If you want to unleash your dark side, then Darth is definitely the man for you. He’ll give his right hand to get you anything you wish for but woe betide anyone who tries to cross him.


For those who want to unleash their inner beast, Chewy is your best bet. Just don’t get in the way of his bromance with his best friend Hans. He’s a Wookie of few words, but will go to the ends of the earth for anybody that he’s close to.

Jar Jar Binks

No Star Wars list would be complete without Mr Binks. Loved by many and loathed by others, he divides opinion. He’s friendly, outgoing and never lost for words. He’s great company for a first date as you will always have plenty to talk about.

Hopefully I’ve given you the chance to explore your hidden geek. Even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan, it’s worth seeing the new movie as it’s perfect for a wonderful dating experience. Be sure to bring some popcorn!
