The tiny Louisiana town at the heart of HBO's hot series "True Blood" seems to be suffering from an embarrassment of riches. For such a small hamlet, Bon Temps has a disproportionate number of fine-looking men. Not that we're complaining. In fact, we've often wished we could jump through the TV screen and roam the bogs and swamps of Alan Ball's fictional world just to rub elbows, shoulders, bulging biceps (you get the drift) with its comely inhabitants. And with so many suitors to chose from, it's hard to pick just one. Which is why we've developed this handy guide to deciding once and for all which Bon Temps man suits you best. After you've found your perfect match, take a look through our entire hunkilicious flipbook to drool over all the dreamy men of "True Blood." We probably don't have to say this but ... enjoy!
Your type is: The southern gentleman. You like a guy who'll open doors, carry your packages and even risk frying in the sun to ensure your safety.
Your perfect match is: Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). You may have to go toe-to-toe with telepath Sookie to win Bill's affections, but an eternity with this chivalrous vamp may well be worth it.
Your type is: The wise, old soul. You crave a man who knows a lot about himself and the world around him.
Your perfect match is: Godric (Allan Hyde, pictured above). The dearly departed elder vampire had 2,000 years of experience to draw on. It's unfortunate this vast knowledge made him too world-weary to stand the test of time.
Your type is: The brawny, blue-collar worker. You value sex appeal over SAT scores and aren't afraid to admit it.
Your perfect match is: Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). Equally comfortable getting dirty in the field or in the bedroom, Jason's got abs for days and knows how to use them.
Your type is: The do-good loner. What guy needs friends when he's got a great gal like you? This man's more likely to make breakfast in bed than ditch you for the big game. Now if he'd only tell you about his childhood.
Your perfect match is: Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell). Bon Temps' barkeep is always willing to help a friend in need, even if it's to his own detriment. He may disappear from time-to-time, but he'll always return like a loyal lapdog.
Your type is: The fixer-upper. You like a project, so who better than a man with a few skeletons lurking in his closet (perhaps literally).
Your perfect match is: Eggs (Mehcad Brooks, pictured above). Tara's damaged boyfriend is a confirmed murderer and substance abuser—the perfect charity case for your nurturing sensibilities.
Your type is: The bad boy with the big heart. Your guy is like a Tootsie Pop: hard on the outside, but soft and gooey on the inside — once he lets you in, that is.
Your perfect match is: Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Season 1 was all about bad-ass Eric, but since the Viking's maker took his own life, we've seen the vulnerable side of the 1,000-year-old vampire — and we like it.
Your type is: The gay BFF. You're looking for a flamboyant fellow to party with at the clubs and tell it like it is when your haircut is just plain fugly.
Your perfect match is: Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). He's got attitude to spare, but Lafayette is fiercely loyal to those he cares about.
