Harry Potter Compatibility – Gryffindor

Gryffindor symbol

Gryffindor? More like GRIFFIN-do! You know you’re a Gryffindor if you’ll wield your wand and sprint towards that fire-breathing dragon–or you know, in the real world, ask that cute barista out on a date.

Gryffindor’s value traits like bravery, courage, and chivalry. They are typically known for their willingness to take risks and face challenges head-on, often putting themselves in danger to defend what they believe is right. They’re loyal to the bone, determined, and never give up on pursuing their dreams, no matter how difficult the circumstances may be. 

Sadly Hogwarts isn’t real–unless I’m missing something and never got my acceptance letter as a kid–so we non-wizarding muggles out here must fend for ourselves without the use of magic, wands, and charms to get through the dating world.

A little less complicated, if you ask me. But if you’re a Gryffindor, then you know more than anyone that you can channel that spirit. There’s no challenge you won’t take on. So Gryffindor, how do you date in the muggle world? Let’s find out!

Gryffindor: The House of Lions, Harry, and Courage

In terms of personality, Gryffindors are confident and assertive, with a strong sense of justice and a desire to help others. They are also known for their competitive spirit, often striving to be the best in everything they do.

However, they can sometimes be impulsive and hot-headed, which can get them into trouble if they don’t think things through. Overall, Gryffindors are seen as valiant and noble, with a fierce spirit that inspires those around them.

Like your symbol, the lion, you take charge, and you know exactly what you want. You’re the center of your universe, and the sun inside you warms everything you touch.

While professional success is important to you, love is always on the back of your mind. You have so much to give, so why not share it with someone special?

Gryffindor’s Ideal Date

Love Potion or a Game of Quidditch?

When you decide that you like someone, you’ll go all out to impress your new partner. And because we, unfortunately, can’t fly around on broomsticks in the muggle world, you’ll seek alternative adrenaline-inducing highs to impress your crush.

The showier, the better in your book. You’ll surprise them with red roses and take them to the fanciest restaurant in town. 

If this person shares your adventurous side, you may even opt for a spontaneous road trip or a last-minute skydiving excursion–as a Gryffindor, you’re still trying to fly whenever you can.

The more fun, the better in your book. It seems like luck is always on your side, but it’s usually because you don’t say no to experiencing new adventures. You’re a natural extrovert which makes you charming and easy to get along with, but you need a partner who is okay with going with the flow in new situations because when it comes to brainstorming a date idea, you’re going to go all out.

You’re an initiator, someone who’s eager to take the lead.

Gryffindor’s Communication Style

Send a Howler or Disapparate?

You, Gryffindor, are a talker. It’s the extroverted side of you but also the part of you that is an external processor, explaining your thoughts out loud in order to understand your feelings.

You have an immaculate memory–but it’s that same memory that will come back and bite you in your fights. You’ll never sweep anything under the rug, and you’ll need to hash out every nitty gritty detail of your arguments so you can feel heard and respected.

The only problem is that you may struggle to give that same patience to your partner, so working on your empathy and listening skills will be a helpful advantage to keeping your bond healthy and happy.

You have no problem expressing your feelings; because of this, your partner doesn’t have to read your mind. As long as they can understand that you need to say your thoughts out loud to move forward, then this argument can become a conversation, and your fights will fizzle before they even begin. 

Gryffindor’s Preferred Love Language

A Gift from Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes or Scourgify the House before Dinner?

Unfortunately, you don’t have a wand and can’t just cast a spell to clean your partner’s house or trick them into thinking you’re right in an argument. But that’s okay because, Gryffindor, you’re all about flashy acts of love.

While you need to feel like you can express yourself by being clear about your communication with your partner, you will thank them by showing your appreciation with home-cooked meals, a nice gift, or a surprise date night out.

You get satisfaction from making your partner feel loved and lucky, and as long as your partner makes you feel like the center of their universe, you don’t really care how they go about it. You’re just happy to love and be loved in return.

Gryffindor’s Compatibility

The Snake, Lion, Eagle, or Badger?

Gryffindor, you’ll get along great with a Ravenclaw–someone who shares your mutual interest in learning new things.

You crave knowledge and love adventuring out into the world, searching for adventures that allow you to explore new cultures, understand new concepts, and challenge yourself. Because you’re competitive, however, you need someone who can appreciate that you like to show off.

That can be a bit much for the more logical, level-headed Ravenclaw, so while they may make a great friend, your romantic partnership is probably best suited with a fellow Gryffindor, someone who will enjoy your passion for spontaneity, fun, and adventure in all forms.

Hufflepuffs will probably be too sensitive for you, Gryffindor, and Slytherin’s too secretive and cunning for your more honorable side.
