Survey Says Ladies Fantasize About Marrying Ryan Gosling, Surprising No One

It wasn't over! It still isn't over!

“It wasn’t over! It still isn’t over!”

Favorite scene from “The Notebook” – go.

Got it? Mine is when the rain-drenched Noah grabs Allie and tells her “It wasn’t over. It still isn’t over!” before passionately planting one on her in the pouring rain after years apart. Ahhh, chick flick romance!

Mercifully, today I’ve learned I’m not alone in my love of this sappy movie or Ryan Gosling’s role. When David’s Bridal surveyed newly engaged and married women about which movie character they’d love to say “I do’s” with, a whopping 40 percent picked the handsome Noah. Thank you, Nicholas Sparks, for turning us all to mush. 

First runner up? Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jack Dawson in “Titanic” takes the silver medal with 30 percent of votes. And rounding out the list, the adventurous Christian Grey of “Fifty Shades of Grey” fame received 17 percent of the vote, and sweet and sensitive tribute Peeta Mellark from the “Hunger Games” trilogy received 13 percent of the vote.

Who is your fantasy groom? (Besides the one who gave you that rock on your finger, of course!) Tell us in the comments.

Here, other findings from their survey:

  • When asked about their engagement experience, a majority of respondents (57 percent) said they knew it was coming, while 43 percent said they were surprised by the proposal.
  • 1 in 5 women surveyed said they reserved Internet usernames with their new married name before they were actually engaged. Plus, another 25 percent seriously considered it.
  • And, as we told you yesterday, 53 percent of brides wish – eek – that they were proposed to differently. Read more on that, here.
