Marry, Date or Dump: Peeta, Gale, & Finnick


I literally am in disbelief that I haven’t done this match up yet. In light of part one of Mockingjay coming out last week I thought that it was definitely time to see who you would all marry, date, and dump. I’m a Peeta girl through and through … but I also really fell in love with Finnick during this book. I’m excited to see which characters you like the most! Let me know your picks in the comments.

  1. Dump Gale because he’s a bloodthirsty, boring character. I’d date Finnick; he seems charming and obviously experienced! And I’d marry Peeta, but like for Katniss, this just seems to be the default choice and not any decision I’m enthusiastic about making. Ugh why are the love interest choices so terrible in this series?!

  2. I am actually pretty enthusiastic about both Peeta and Finnick – never a Gale girl. So, I would dump Gale, Date Finnick and Marry Peeta.

  3. This one is so easy – dump Gale. I honestly cannot stand his character and he bothered me even more in this movie than any of the others.

    Date Finnick – I think he’d be a good time and he knows how to charm a lady.

    Marry Peeta – he’s a keeper ❤

  4. Yeah, I’d definitely marry Finnick. All of the things that I like about Peeta-sensitivity, sincerity, loyalty, and communication-are all present in Finnick too, plus charm, looks, and improvisation. Peeta has a long time to prepare for all of his acting, it’s Finnick who just takes the moment and backs up pregnancy stories, etc.

    As for the others, yes dump Gale. Date Peeta and enjoy pretty baked goods.

  5. Gale is a flat character. No real complex traits or emotions; his role in the series is to be a friend to Katniss (which he fails at) go hunting (well, he does do this) and protect Prim (which he kind of does?) Gale is not supposed to be a remotely possible love interest. His personality is too harsh for damaged Katniss who needs a gentle soul to guide her on her way.

    Finnick is a god; hot water boy here? He’s charming and loyal; sensitive too. The thing about Finnick is he’s too intense and almost too casual; you can see it in the second book. Finnick is wonderful but Katniss needs someone to connect with more than she can connect with Finnick.

    Peeta. Finally Peeta. He’s there for Katniss and she’s there for him; they’re wonderful equals. They have the others’ weaknesses as strengths and are emotionally connected. He’s sensitive and gentle, understanding and sweet. He balances Katniss’s intensity with his softness.

    So, for Katniss, marry Peeta, date Finnick and dump Gale.
    For me… Finnick is a god and he deserves the top spot in my heart. Marry Finnick. Peeta is very sweet and his pastries are to die for. (not literally!) Date Peeta. Dump Gale. ‘Nuff said.
