1. Noah and Allie
The generation of hearts fell in love with their romance.
Since then, we’ve been waiting for that special guy to lie in the road with (disclaimer: don’t actually do this) and give us this speech:
“Well that’s what we do! We fight! You tell me when I’m being an arrogant son of a b***h and I tell you when you’re being a pain in the ass! Which you are, 99% of the time. I’m not afraid to hurt your feelings, you have like a two-second rebound rate and you’re back doing the next pain in the ass thing… It’s not gonna be easy, it’s gonna be really hard. And we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I wanna do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever. You and me. Everyday.”
And, come on, it’s Ryan Gosling.
2. Ross and Rachel
3. Seth and Summer
It’s a classic tale: the high school comic book nerd falls head-over-heels for the prom queen. But, in the O.C, they finally get together.
And that ‘I wish I were a mermaid poem’ from sixth grade…. With relationship history like that, they were just meant to be.
4. Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big
Yes, he left her at the alter. Yes, he threw a grown-man wobbly every time they hit a relationship milestone.
But, they overcame that first date curse, and just couldn’t stay away from one another.
And who doesn’t want to be rescued from an angry Russian by Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome?
5. Baby and Johnny Castle
We’ve all got fond memories from our first summer holiday romance. But, somehow, none of them seemed to live up to the expectations set by this teen couple.
Maybe we should have carried a watermelon, too.
6. Edward Cullen and Bella
Vampire love aside, Edward reminded us just how special old-fashioned romance can be.
Remember this proposal?
“I’m from a different era. Things were a lot less complicated. And if I would have met you back then, I would have courted you. Would’ve taken chaperoned strolls and had iced tea on the porch. I may have stolen a kiss or two, but only after asking your father’s permission, I would’ve got down on one knee and I would’ve presented you with a ring.”
We’d take Ice Tea over Tinder any day.
7. Bridget and Mark Darcy
The epitome of ‘you always fight with the one you love’, these two came to sarcastic blows every time they met.
Until Darcy finally admitted that he liked Bridget just the way she was.
8. Jack and Rose
Leonardo DiCaprio broke a lot of young girl’s hearts when he hit our big screens as Jack Dawson.
And when she finally let go…. Sob.
