1
Noah and Allie - "The Notebook"

New Line Cinema via Everett Collection
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams dated for a little bit, because they knew what we all do...THEY BELONG TOGETHER. Sorry, been feeling this way since 2004. The chemistry that the actors on this list is so real, they made us love these relationships, even if some of them might be a little bit broken or offbeat.

Lily and Marshall - "How I Met Your Mother"
Lily and Marshall - "How I Met Your Mother"
CBS
Why can't we have best friends like Lily and Marshall that we can pretend to be their child and dress up with them every Halloween as a group. That's not asking too much, is it?

Jack and Rose - "Titanic"

Why isn't this one real. But real, in the sense that no one dies, and everyone's happy, and Leonardo DiCaprio stops dating women half his age.

Jim and Pam inspired all of us who worked in an office to believe that true love can occur right next to the water cooler.
5
Becky and Jesse - "Full House"
Becky and Jesse - "Full House"

These two are the DREAM aunt and uncle couple. The fact that we all had to grow up without them as our own was extremely disappointing.

Amy and Sheldon - "The Big Bang Theory"
Amy and Sheldon - "The Big Bang Theory"
CBS
They are easily the weirdest couple on TV, but that's exactly why we love them. They're so perfectly odd, you want to be friends with them to see if they're really like that.

Come on, man. James Lafferty and Bethany Joy Lenz played a couple for 10 years, and you're telling us they never dated in real life? Heartbreaking.
11
Lucas and Peyton - "One Tree Hill"
Lucas and Peyton - "One Tree Hill"
The CW
While we were always happy having Nathan & Haley together, we had to wait through over half of this show for Lucas and Peyton to actually get together for real and it was so frustrating. Chad Michael Murry's chemistry was so much better with Hilarie Burton than any other love interest Lucas had.
12
Danny and Sandy - "Grease"
Danny and Sandy - "Grease"
Paramount Pictures via Everett Collection
If Danny and Sandy didn't inspire you Halloween after Halloween to dress up and dance your little heart out, then you're a total liar.

Bet you didn't expect a show about a teenage witch to provide one of your favorite couples, but that's the beauty of it. We'd like the magic to be real, too.

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan should have gotten married. If You've Got Mail isn't enough proof for you, then just look at Sleepless in Seattle.
