List RulesVote up the sci-fi boyfriends who are kind, emotionally mature, and dedicated. Vote down the ones that aren't.

It gets lonely out there sometimes, especially if you live in space, a dystopian future Los Angeles, or a New York City overrun with maniacal super villains. When cuffing season comes around, wouldn't it be nice to have a partner who supports you, holds your hand, and helps you through the tough times? Below are 25 of the most notorious boyfriends and best sci-fi couples.

Vote up the sci-fi TV boyfriends and sci-fi movie boyfriends you think are the most supportive and attentive to their significant others, that are just as concerned with their mate as they are with themselves. Vote down the ones who are just too trifling to waste time on.

  • His Dreamiest Qualities: Steady hands, entrepreneurial, quick with a joke, emotionally available, sensitive

    Potential Red Flags: Wanted criminal, maybe too quick with a joke

    Signature Pick-Up Line: "Here lies my beloved Zoe, my autumn flower... somewhat less attractive now that she's all corpsified and gross."

    Wash, as his wife Zoe calls him, is the pilot on board Serenity in addition to being a dedicated husband. That often creates conflict on the TV series Firefly, as Wash (and Zoe) both have to juggle their responsibilities to each other with their responsibilities to Captain Mal Reynolds and his ship. Wash almost always picks Zoe first, and vice versa. Wash is faithful and mature, even when he seems like the goofiest man in the galaxy.

  • His Dreamiest Qualities: A dreamer and hopeless romantic

    Potential Red Flags: Impulsive, stubborn

    Signature Pick-Up Line: *Bleep Blop Blorp*

    Wall-E is a pretty neurotic, clumsy robot, but he's got heart and soul. He'll never give up on you, which goes a long way.

  • His Dreamiest Qualities: Looking to start a family, good in a crisis

    Potential Red Flags: Clingy

    Signature Pick-Up Line: "John Connor gave me a picture of you once. I didn't know why at the time. It was very old - torn, faded. You were young like you are now. You seemed just a little sad. I used to always wonder what you were thinking at that moment. I memorized every line, every curve... I came across time for you, Sarah. I love you; I always have."

    Kyle Reese supports Sarah Connor in the most immediate way possible: keeping her safe when a Terminator comes a-callin'. It's a little weird when he tells Sarah he's been in love with her before they even met, because of a photo. Kinda creepy, even with the time travel factored in.

    • His Dreamiest Qualities: Brave, kind-hearted

      Potential Red Flags: Insecure, uses sarcasm to protect his feelings, prone to jealousy

      Signature Pick-Up Line: "I'm stealthy, like a ninja."

      Steve started out as a total jerk in the first season of Stranger Things, but we eventually saw that was all a mask for a sad, sensitive young man. He's a real softy after all.
