You know you love them.
From time to time people look to their TV’s to escape their realities.
We get invested in shows and fall in love with the characters. We root for the couples who are the underdogs and get upset when our favorite doesn’t end up with the character who is clearly their soul mate. However, sometimes, when all is right in the world and the stars seems to align, our favorite characters end up together.
These are some of the TV couples who made us believe in love. No couple is perfect and these folks didn’t pretend to be. But we were able to see pieces of ourselves in them and that’s what made us fall in love.
Nathan and Haley are my personal #goals.
What I loved most about Nathan (James Lafferty) and Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz) is that they were teammates through EVERYTHING. Honestly Nathan and Haley went through a lot of shit together. From Nathan’s drunks days to Haley being on tour, at some points I was almost sure that a divorce was happening. But, NOPE they stuck it out together and remained a team which was my favorite aspect of their relationship.
Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) are everyone’s favorite couple from “The Office.” (Am I generalizing? Oh well.)
Everyone loved them because for so long it felt like their relationship wasn’t going to happen. Pam was engaged and Jim just had a crush on her, but it seemed like he was never going to say anything. So much drama happened between the two of them, but eventually they found their way to each other.
Jim and Pam were so loved because they showed that love is rooted in friendship. Before anything Jim and Pam were friends and that’s what I think made their relationship so strong.
These two are truly a dynamic duo.
My favorite thing about Ben (Adam Scott) and Leslie (Amy Poehler) is that they always supported one another. It didn’t matter if Leslie was running for office or if Ben was hesitant about taking the job in Washington D.C. They supported each other 100 percent.
Ben and Leslie faced their own set of struggles as a couple, but through everything they came out stronger than before. I think it had to do with the immense amount of support that they had for one another.
My heart will alway hurt for these two.
I was always on Team Rafael (Justin Baldoni), but I couldn’t deny what Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Michael (Brett Dier) had. Jane and Michael loved each other with everything they had until his last breath. I loved that in their relationship Michael understood how important family was for Jane.
He never tried to get in the way of that. Instead he became a part of their family dynamic. Michael became another dad to Mateo and that’s all Jane ever wanted, a family with Michael. They truly were a part of each other’s families even before they were married. This TV couple will always have a piece of my heart.
Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) were the perfect relationship on this show. They showed what it’s like for a best friend to date a sibling. More importantly though, Monica and Chandler were a great TV couple because they chose each other and continued to make it work.
They are the perfect example of what it’s like to fall in love with someone and make it work despite everything that makes you different from one another.
Another couple with a tragic ending.
My heart will always ache for these two. However, when they were together they were a perfect team. Whether it was in their personal or professional lives they understood how to balance everything. Of course, there were certain times when they had their own set of problems but everyone still loved them.
What made Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) so special is that they showed us what it’s like to have a real relationship with real problems in which you fight to make things work. They showed us that love exists even when we choose to close our selves off to the opportunity.
Do I even have to explain why these two were perfect for each other?
Luke (Scott Patterson) went from serving Lorelai (Lauren Graham) coffee every morning to becoming her husband. In their own ways, they fought for each other and for their relationship. Like the relationship between Jim and Pam on “The Office,” this relationship was rooted in friendship.
Luke was also there for Lorelai’s daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) which was one of the many things she loved about him. He cared for Rory as if she was his own child. These two were perfect for each other and it was nice to see them get the ending they deserved.
This gif above represents my emotions after seeing all of these couples. If you ever need to be reminded of love in the world, look no further than the small screen nearest you. There’s plenty of love shown there.
