Do NOT Text Him #5

Watch another episode of House of Cards… consider a career in politics and get yourself a male Monica Lewinsky.

I’d actually never started House of Cards, but I’d been meaning to. So basically, this was just an excuse for me to binge yet another Netflix Original.

I can’t say the show has made a career in politics desirable to me…but watching Frank Underwood has definitely opened my eyes to something I value in a potential partner that I didn’t know how to put into words.


I have never been so attracted to a fictional character (with the exception of Chuck Bass, who shares the attribute) before. Sure, I’ve had my fictional crushes like any human being, but not like this. I mean, he’s not even physically attractive. But everything from the way he carries himself to how he talks…he’s an aphrodisiac.

His marriage (in spite of its roller coaster) is also fairly equal, at least until he – SPOILER ALERT – becomes  president. But even then, it’s still more balanced than even a regular relationship. It’s one of those things that I knew was important to me, but didn’t have the words to articulate it. I had no idea that this silly challenge would be so introspective, but hey. If nothing else, I’ve realized a few really cool things about myself and what I want.

Forget texting anyone; I want Francis Underwood.
