Happy Valentine’s Day, Blacklisters! Ah yes, the holiday filled with love that some look forward to while others… don’t. But don’t fret! If you don’t have a valentine, we have a fictional one just for you. He’s handsome, dependable, funny, intelligent… the one and only Aram Mojtabai! Played by Amir Arison on NBC’s The Blacklist, Aram Mojtabai is the guy that everyone loves, although his track record with relationships is questionable (sorry Aram). As loyal fans have seen, Aram has been through many trials and tribulations, relationship or otherwise, that have broken the hearts of Aram enthusiasts everywhere. Aram deserves happiness; although that may not always be tied to romance. In the spirit of the occasion, we decided to make a case and give you our top five reasons Aram would be the best valentine.
Check them out below!
Trust is huge with so many potential romances, but no worries here with Aram! He’s a great, dependable guy! He will be sure to have a special surprise planned for Valentine’s Day equipped with flowers, chocolate, and a fancy dinner! From what we’ve seen from watching eight seasons of The Blacklist, he is always someone you can turn to in times of need! If you call Aram, he will be there! This makes a great quality for a valentine.
So Friendly and Kind!
Okay, so this might count as two qualities (whoops). Who doesn’t love a friendly, outgoing man? Aram is super friendly and kind, not only with adults, but with children, as seen in the picture above. He has a gentleness about him that attracts all walks of life. He makes others feel comfortable and he is quick to make friendships! If you chose him as your fictional valentine, he will love getting to know you and building that friendship foundation!
One of the Smartest Guys Around
He’s wicked smart, and we envy him. He’s not working for the FBI as a super tech genius for nothing! As Blacklisters are well aware, the team relies on Aram for his immense technical knowledge and skills. He is able to think swiftly on his feet and adapt to most situations in and out of the field. Knowledge is powerful and as your valentine, Aram would have meaningful conversations with you that are sure to blow your mind.
One Handsome Fella
Although looks don’t always make or break a valentine, Aram is one good-looking man that you don’t want to pass up! He is well-dressed, put together, and will have you stopping in your tracks! If you’re lucky enough to have him as your valentine, make sure to take TONS of pictures to reminisce on the occasion (and to show all your friends). This quality is definitely an added bonus.
He’s a Ride or Die
Lastly, Aram would go to the ends of the earth for you. When he cares for you, he will do just about anything to be with you or protect you. For instance, when Samar vanished at the hands of Reddington, Aram was willing to go head-to-head with him, despite any consequences. When he falls, he falls hard, and maybe you’ll be fortunate enough to be his catch!
