Unlucky In Love: Our Advice for Emma Swan

by at . Comments

Our favorite TV characters are amazing in so many ways. Great hair, beautiful clothes, even mystical powers. Unfortunately, sometimes not even magic spells success when it comes to love.

Here at TV Fanatic we're doing our best to pinpoint those characters whose love lives seem particularly unlucky and take them under our wing. We've already doled out our sage advice to Olivia Pope of Scandal, Tony DiNozzo of NCIS and Dr. Temperance Brennan of Bones.

Now it's time to wave our magical wand over Emma Swan of Once Upon a Time

Emma Is Stunning

Dear Emma,
What can we say? Has anyone ever been more unlucky than you when it comes to love? After being abandoned by your parents in an enchanted tree trunk, things didn't get much better for you.

Your first love, Neal left you. Yes, August had convinced him he was doing the right thing. That ditching you would help fulfill some magical prophecy but did desitny really require you to be alone, pregnant, and in prison?

When it comes to curses, you need look no farther than your own love life. The moment Sheriff Graham had eyes for you Regina crushed his heart to dust…literally,

Things with August looked interesting but then he left. When he finally returned he was more wood than man and then the Blue Fairy turned him back into a little boy.  Tough break.

The appearance of Captain Hook looked hopeful, until you ditched him on top of a bean stalk with a giant. Not the best way to build trust.

When you and Neal finally crossed paths again he found out you shared an 11 year old son. And you found out Neal had a secretly evil fiancee. Sigh.

When Shakespeare wrote, "the course of true love never did run smooth" I doubt even he could have imagined a love life such as yours. Cursed is truly the only word we can come up with to accurately describe it.  Perhaps you should talk to Rumpelstiltskin or that Blue Fairy about a cleansing spell before you try your hand at love again.

That said, this isn't the time to give up. Although Neal was sucked through an otherworldly portal after declaring his love for you, all hope is not lost. And if that doesn't work out don't forget about that pirate, Hook. There seems to be a heart hidden under that swagger…and a hotness even magic can't hide.

Do not despair dear Emma. Once Upon a Time season 3 is on its way and with a new season comes the opportunity to change your luck in love.

Dear readers: who would YOU pick to win Emma's heart?

    katy1986, no offense, but you do realize that you can be attracted to someone of your own sex without having to identify as gay, right? There is such a thing as bisexuality, for example.
