Labelled as the “bad guy” among four houses probably makes Slytherin the less popular in Hogwarts. Not to mention that the biggest villain Voldemort was a proud Slytherin too. But as we flipped through the seven books, we can help but find that Slytherin is somehow really cool.
And, yes, there are so many misunderstanding toward Slytherin as we discover the truth about Severus Snape in the very last book. You don’t really need reasons why you should fall in love with a Slytherin. But if you are too sided with Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff, maybe you don’t know Slytherin that well. Let’s go down and see how much a Slytherin could offer as a lover…
“Or perhaps in Slytherin you’ll make your true friends. Those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends.” – The Sorting Hat
Each Slytherin lives with their own ambition. Some of that is questionable and unacceptable but they will do everything necessary to achieve their ambition. The most horrible example is how Voldemort had “ambition” to rule the Wizarding World and make it “Muggle-free”. It’s terrible, but how he stood for his ambition until the very end is what we should learn. Also read Reasons to Date a Writer
The ambitious nature of a Slytherin makes them try too hard that they never give up. They are consistent with it, from Horace Slughorn who makes friends with famous wizards over the years, Voldemort who find his way back to be a ruler, Draco Malfoy who is trying to murder Dumbledore until the end even when he knew it’s impossible.
Slytherins are full of secrecy. They are tricky but it somehow makes them charming. And it started from its founder himself, when Salazar Slytherin built a secret chamber without the other three knowing and only his heir could open. This is annoying but useful at many times.

"After all, He Who Must Not Be Named did great things – terrible, yes, but great." – Ollivander, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Slytherins have a big ambition because they know what they want, even when it’s the bad one. They set their eyes on the prize from the very beginning and don’t let anything get on their way.
Slytherins know they are great, and they don’t have to do much to show it. Or so they think.

You must haven’t forget how Snape constantly loved Lily even after her death until his own death, despite his detestation to James Potter. He loved her right from the start. Always.

Imagine dating a Slytherin and you don’t have to tiptoe around Snape anymore.
Slytherins really stand tall on their ground. Despite being the most hated house, they don’t affected by it at all. As the house where Voldemort once belong, being a Slytherin must be hard with judging eye from others everywhere they go. But look at how tough they are against all judgment and stay proud of who they are.

All of the reasons why you should fall in love with a Slytherin above seemed not enough. You have to know them closer and try not to see them from the Gryffindor’s shoes. Really, Slytherins make a perfect lover.
