    Definitely Min, in a heartbeat. Shes easily the most mature of the women in the series, with the most level head. Maybe Siuan as an option too though... I dont know why but I really REALLY like her.

    I would be close friends to Elayne but her arrogance would annoy me too much for more, so she would need a major attitude adjustment first.

    As for a guy (if I had to choose one) Perrin, easily. Calm, gentle and a good heart, plus I love Wolves. Rand is too distrustful of others (not that I blame him) and waaaay too similar to myself in soooo many ways. (meaning our stubbornness would clash BADLY.) and Mat complains about EVERYTHING. If Thom was young, I would consider him tho xD

    I'd choose Bayle Domon. A rugged merchant who knows his way around a body of water?

    Yes please.

    He's the Sailor that is ferrying the ship that Mat and Rand jump onto when they are running from Trollocs after getting split from the party at Shadar Logoth.

    My ideal wife from WOT would be Aviendha or Moraine. Someone that has that fire in there eyes. But also challenges me mental from time to time. Both of them have a backbone when it comes to getting something they want done.

    I agree with you about Lan. He's the type of guy a girl can respect but not the type I could talk with.
    Rand seemed sweet and caring in books one and two but duty already changed him in book three. He got too angst-y to be around.
    I would have to choose either Perrin or Mat (Mat might make a better friend than a SO).

    I never understood how Rand fell for Aviendha. She was mean to him from day one!
    I thought they would have to dance the spears before either one of them could even respect the other!

    I really enjoy her arc and where she ends up at the end of the series.

    For a husband, it's Perrin hands down. He's completely loyal and fiercely protective of those he loves. I think he's also the kind that you could talk to and would respect as a person.

    As far as a wife goes I think Min is excellent, but I also like the lady who ran the tavern in Ebou Dar
    I can't remember her name, but she left with Mat when they escaped the Senchean and travels with them for a while.

    Setalle Anan? Yeah, she's cool.

    I think Min is also good for a wife, cause she will not dance around the problem, but tell you straight to your face what's bothering her. I feel like the other girls will just wiat for the man to realise what he did wrong :p

    Min was always my favorite out of Rand's three. I just want to choke Elayne and though I like Aviendha I agree with @Almira ni'Caldazare in that I never understood their relationship.

    Min was my favorite as well. I think Aviendha and Rand were by happenstance? Perhaps I am remembering wrong.
    I thought they were just acquaintances until the part where they have to flee together and end up somewhere ice cold, and in order to survive they had to get naked and hold each other for body warmth and survival, and then of course carnal pleasure just came naturally after that. Then of course as typical with carnal pleasure, comes feelings... that was my understanding how it developed. It wasn't that they ever got on well or developed a healthy relationship, they were just each others 'firsts'. I really need to do my re-read soon though because I just don't know for sure if I am on target or not.

    I'm on that exact part in my re-read now.

    I've always seen it as Aviendha being attracted to Rand and trying not to be because "he belongs to Elayne" (thus being rude and sulky). Rand just seems to fall in love with all three because he has to...? He dreams about them and thinks about them all the time without knowing any of them. Same with them towards him imo.

    They didn't run away as such. Rand walked in on Aviendha naked washing, she panics and opens a portal to a snowstorm and run naked and wet away. Rand runs after to prevent her from freezing to death and being unable to remember how to open a new portal to travel back.

    As for the threads topic I'm not sure at all... So many people unable to communicate in this series! :lol

    Tam seems pretty stable, I guess. I would probably end up running away from most everyone, men and women alike, to avoid going insane.

    I understand how a lot of people get that view. They way that I read it was one reach the others about a different view of life and from the teachings that are shared a bond is formed.
