We spend years and years dating, trying to find THE ONE. But even after hundreds of dates and probably more than a few boyfriends/girlfriends it is highly unlikely that we are going to find a relationship that is as perfect as how love is portrayed on the big screen.
How depressing is that? That a fictional character bags a wonderful partner within two hours. While you have been trying for years? Grrrrrr.
So, in no particular order, these are the couples who I am most jealous of.
1. Jamie and Dylan – Friends with Benefits
Being friends with someone before you start dating them is ideal. You are comfortable with them, you are not worried to be yourself around them and it’s one less person you have to worry about when you begin dating seriously (it’s well known that friends are often slightly neglected in favour of boy/girlfriends).
I love the hilarious friendship that Jamie and Dylan have prior to having sex. Then when they begin dating properly, it’s even better.
2.Tris and Four – Divergent
She is a slight outcast, weaker than those around her. He is the cool teacher who is awesome at everything. Yet she is not scared to be herself, and doesn’t give up. She just becomes even more determined to make it. And he falls in love with her for it. And they are just so cute. And he respects her when she wants to go slow. And ahhhh they are basically just cute. That’s all.
3. Flynn and Rapunzel – Tangled
Flynn frees Rapunzel from her overprotective mother and gives her a life which is what she desperately wanted. And yes, at first, he might have lied and cheated but everybody loves a bad boy. He sees the error of his ways in the end too, which is every girl’s dream.
4. Katniss and Peeta – The Hunger Games
She saves his life, he saves hers, she saves his, he saves hers…and they both go through some horrific things that only the other understands. And for that reason, nothing can rip them apart. Even when the evil president tries to poison Peeta’s mind against Katniss, they still get through it and remain strong.
5. Tim and Mary – About Time
They just have such a giggle. And their relationship/marriage seems so easy and stress free. It’s the perfect relationship.
6. Annie and Officer Rhodes – Bridesmaids
After months of feeling low and even more months of denying her feelings, Annie finally gets the guy. A cutely hilarious policeman, who is undeniably patient with her, until she finally catches up and realises that he’s the one for her.
7. Rosie and Alex – Love Rosie
As I said earlier, being friends before you start dating someone is ideal. But as this film shows, it doesn’t always work. They get there in the end though. And as their friendship is completely perfect, I assume their relationship will be too. They should make a Love Rosie, part 2.
8. Paige and Leo – The Vow
Paige and Leo are in a car accident which shatters their marriage completely when she forgets the entire thing. He does everything to win her back but he doesn’t succeed so they divorce. But there is just the tiniest part of memory which gives her the smallest of inklings that they are meant to be together. And they fall in love all over again! That’s what true love should be – it truly is forever and never goes away.
9. Jacob and Hannah – Crazy Stupid Love
‘SERIOUSLY? It’s like your photoshopped’ – those immortal words would be said by anyone who is met with Ryan Gosling’s body, I am sure. Or just him in general. These two really make up the perfect couple. And again, Jacob is a kind of bad boy who finally settles down when he finds the one. That mixture of dangerous and cute safety is what every girl falls for.
10. Gus and Hazel – The Fault in Our Stars
Ahhh they are so young but so in love but have so many problems. It’s like Romeo and Juliet but with cancer. Totally heartbreaking. But their relationship caused them so much happiness at a time where they were both so ill.
11. Peter and Gwen – Spiderman
Who wouldn’t want to be dating a superhero? Especially a hot one.
12. Victoria and Albert – The Young Victoria
This is one of the best because it is so real. They rely on each other so much, to help them through a crazily busy and very public life.
So true love isn’t just a myth? You had me fooled.
Is it just me?
