Welcome back to Marry, Date or Dump. I enjoyed the break, but somehow Burn, Read, Rewrite wasn’t as much fun.

To refresh memories, I give three characters and you tell me who you’d marry, date and dump in the comments. This time around I think I’ll list my own choices as well, since that makes it more fun. This was one of the first ever group of characters I did for Marry, Date or Dump and one of the most popular, so I thought I’d pose the question again for the (re)inaugural game.
