We've curated a list of wholesome male characters written by women to go back to when you need some reassurance and faith in love!

There's so much difference between how men and women write their characters especially when it comes to male characters who are expected to show emotions. The love is buried deep somewhere behind all that "mard ko dard nahi hota" and it's certainly not what today's woman expects out of her dream man. Small gestures go a long way and good listeners will always be A1! These male characters have won several hearts and are the sole reason for raising our dating standards. Be it the way they look at the love of their lives with heart eyes, the comfort in silence, tight hugs after a bad day, or just simply loving her for who she is and being her home away from home, it's time we embraced these male characters written by women for women.

Some movies and TV shows become your comfort zone when they include male characters you never thought would exist IRL because they're everything you've ever imagined your partner to be. It almost feels surreal how a fictional character can make you weak in the knees for them. It's like you're in the story with them, while romantic songs are playing and flowers are blooming all around you! It's not rocket science to understand women and these male characters prove that to the world!

Check out these male characters written by women!

P.S. We're not responsible if your heart melts while swooning over them!
