Comparing the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and ‘Vampire Diaries’ Love Interests

You may have a favorite guy or gal from Rosewood or Mystic Falls, but what happens when you compare Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries love interests?

While one show takes the top spot, the other takes Nos. 2 and 3, so it’s definitely a tight race. However, when it all comes down to it, we think the love interests in The Vampire Diaries come out on top. Scroll through to see if you agree or disagree.

Pretty Little Liars returns Tuesday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.

This guy is the worst. He gaslit his probably-not-legal wife Alison DiLaurentis, never told her he was just doing it to exact revenge, and put her in a mental hospital where he tortured her. He really owns the worst love interest spot.

Not to be outdone, Sara was secretly tormenting her girlfriend Emily and all of her besties as Black Widow and Red Coat. She was super duper shady, and while she tried to maybe redeem herself, she was murdered before she ever won back any trust.

We’d love to rank Noel Kahn as a great love interest because he is (was!) super hot, but whoops, turns out he’s an ax-wielding wannabe murderer who had a lot of secrets.

Even without that, Noel was a total player, dating Aria, Mona, and Jenna and playing them off each other.

Sorry Ezria shippers, but the evidence is stacked against Ezra as a good boyfriend.

He basically stalked and played Aria when he first met her and didn’t tell her for years; he dropped her when his not-real son came back in the picture; and last we spotted him, he was kissing someone other than his fiancée on national television. Not a good look.

12. Klaus Mikaelson

This is a tough one because we love Klaus, but he’s also a scheming murderer who probably won’t get along with any of your friends. However, he does have a penchant for sending amazing gifts, and when you do make it to his inner circle, he’ll be super loyal.

Never forget: Paige once tried to drown Emily. She can also be super jealous, and when she gets that way, she can be vicious. That stuff casts a dark shadow on her as a great love interest, but she’ll still barely crack the top 10.

10. Tyler Lockwood

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but after showing up in Mystic Falls as a totally annoying bro, Tyler ended up being a pretty epic boyfriend to Caroline — when he’s actually in town and not running away from Klaus, that is. Oh, and coping with the werewolf thing would be tough.

All the friendship love to Matt Donovan, but we’re afraid he has too much baggage. After accidentally killing the love of his life, Matt would probably never allow anyone to live up to expectations as a girlfriend. We do wish him all the best, though because he was sweet to Caroline and Elena while that lasted.

That accent! Wren is a total cutie and so smart (he’s a doctor after all), but he definitely is hiding something. Plus, he was hitting on Spencer when he was engaged to her sister, Melissa, so you’ll have to watch his wandering eye.

7. Maya St. Germain

Maya really brought Emily out of her shell, and she was generally a fun and loving girlfriend. However, Maya also brought a lot of secrets with her (what did Maya know?!) and she could be straight-up rude when you brought her home to have dinner with your parents.

6. Toby Cavanaugh

Toby makes a good, steady boyfriend. He’ll even build you a house! But you might always be worried he’s in love with his high school sweetheart, and if we’re being totally honest, he’s not the most fun boyfriend in the universe.

5. Stefan Salvatore

Now we’re really getting into the best love interests in both shows. Stefan is romantic and loyal (OK and super cute), and he’s not afraid of commitment.

On the flip side, you’ll frequently be worried he’ll go Ripper, and he’s also the kind of guy who will go serve the devil immediately after proposing to you because, frankly, sometimes he chooses his brother over you.

Against all odds, Damon has made for an unbelievable boyfriend — if you’re his one true love. Once you get into his good graces, you’ll never lack adventure or full-blown swoons. Oh, and he’ll also look out for your besties. There will be loads of playful banter, but be careful because his own self-loathing can cause him to lash out.

Talk about loyalty. Mike once kept a HUGE secret that his girlfriend Mona faked her death so that she could complete a master plan. He doesn’t shy away from smart, powerful women and he’ll always be there as your support and partner.

You now just have to hope he sticks around in Rosewood and doesn’t just vanish off the face of the earth.

2. Caleb Rivers

The honeymoon will never be over when you’re dating Caleb Rivers. He’s big on physical affection, and he loves a girlfriend who is strong and outspoken. Two of our beloved Liars fell for him for a reason!

He’s super smart, brave, and loves to travel the world. Just watch for his eye wandering toward your bestie.

He’ll teach you to play guitar and then keep you swooning for the rest of your life. He’s funny, crazy handsome, and he always has the most romantic things to say. For Enzo, we would totally become a vampire, but he’ll probably sacrifice for you instead anyway, and become a human.
