“The Office” featured a string of steamy hot office romance, some of which were short-lived. However, through all the dramas and changing love interests, Pam Beesley and Jim Halpert stood by each other, easily becoming the movie’s favorite pair.
2. ELLE EVANS AND NOAH FLYNN
Joey King and Jacob Elordi brought to life the epic love story of Elle Evans and Noah Flynn in the film “The Kissing Booth.”

3. MARSHAL ERIKSON AND LILY ALDRIN
Marshal Erikson and Lily Aldrin’s whirlwind romance seemed to progress at the speed of light. From their first meeting to their brow-raising nuptials and eventually becoming first-time parents, this couple did justice to their romance on “How I Met Your Mother.”
Similarly, the movie’s ending also hit viewers with the same lightning pace, leaving most craving more of the cute love story. A sequel, please!
4. NOAH CALHOUN AND ALLIE HAMILTON
“The Notebook” love match, Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) is a worthy mention on this list. Not only were the roles played by two Hollywood A-listers who dated in real life, but the movies’ beautiful storyline had a captivating impact on viewers.
5. ALLY CAMPANO AND JACKSON MAINE
The latest version of the cult classic, “A Star Is Born” starred Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga as Jackson Maine and Ally Campano.
Perhaps it is the powerful combination of two legends as the leads or simply their flawless portrayal of two lovebirds. But somehow, these two starred their way into people’s hearts, making a lasting impact.
6. ROSS GELLER AND RACHEL GREEN
After ten seasons of uncertainties, Ross Geller and Rachel Green finally decided to put all sentiments behind them and couple up for good.
Witnessing the epic moment Rachel abandoned her flight to Paris at the last minute and rushed to Ross’ side, made the 10-years wait worth the while.
7. MONICA GELLER AND CHANDLER BING
Arguably the best couple in the best sitcom ever, Monica Geller and Chandler Bing stole the show seamlessly from Rachel and Ross on “Friends.” No offense, Aniston!
After a series of failed relationships and serving as each other’s shoulders to lean on, Monica and Chandler finally hooked up. Their marriage remains the next best thing after chocolate.
8. LORELAI GILMORE AND LUKE DANES
“Gilmore Girls” stars Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson played Stars Hollow’s couple, Lorelai Gilmore and Luke Danes.
With their relationship remaining somewhat constant amid Lorelai’s daughter Rory’s often tumultuous romance, viewers always had something to fall back to after yet another of Rory’s sad experiences.
9. ARIA MONTGOMERY AND EZRA FITZ
Although questionable in terms of age-appropriate, the love story between Aria Montgomery and her English teacher, Ezra Fitz, on “Pretty Little Liars,” was awe-inspiring.
Having hooked up at a bar a night before discovering Montgomery was a high schooler and not a college undergrad as she claimed, Fitz knew it was too late to get over her. Thus originated yet another pretty little lie on the series, and one of the best romances ever!
10. GABRIELLA MONTEZ AND TROY BOLTON
Teenage love birds Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez can easily pass for the modern-day Romeo and Juliet. With the chemistry between their characters on “High School Musical,” played by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, who could have enough of this couple?
11. CHUCK BASS AND BLAIR WALDORF
Another romance-studded television show, “Gossip Girl” featured a handful of couples; one could hardly pick a favorite. Then came Chuck Bass, who swept Blair Waldorf off her Audrey Hepburn-obsessed feet, easily claiming the best couple status for themselves.
12. VIVIAN WARD AND EDWARD LEWIS
Vivian Ward, the beautiful escort, not only stole Edward Lewis’ heart on “Pretty Woman,” but also the hearts of viewers. It is not surprising then to find the love pair in this list of adorable TV couples.
Notably, the roleplayers Julia Roberts and Richard Gere brought these characters to life so well that many anticipated the continuation of their love story off the screen.
13. DRE AND RAINBOW JOHNSON
The Proud anesthesiologist, Rainbow Johnson, and her seemingly petty husband, Andre Johnson, on “Black-ish” easily pass for the funniest couple on television. The combination of their dramatic characters, coupled with running a home with their five kids, make their love incomparable, even after eighteen years and counting.
Viewers still find it hard to believe the role players Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross never connected IRL!
14. STEFAN SALVATORE AND ELENA GILBERT
From Simon and Amara to Stefan and Kathrine, the doppelgangers on “Vampires Diaries” found each other in each lifetime, reigniting their love stories. Hence, when Stefan’s perceived soulmate, Kathrine, not only went rogue but tried claiming both Salvatore brothers, Stefan had to take a step back.
Imagine his surprise when he found another doppelganger, Elena Gilbert, centuries later living up her teenage life. Bearing the same looks as his Kathrine but with the purest of hearts, Stefan naturally fell for her.
Their love story proved to be the best ever until Stefan’s brother, Damon, came into the picture. Fingers crossed in hopes that true love prevails in the end.
15. RICK BLAINE AND ILSA LUND
This list is not complete without the inclusion of the “Casablanca” love duo, Rick Blaine and Isla Lund. The characters, played by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, set the yardstick for on-screen couple goals.
Over the years, numerous movies have borrowed the epic premise of their love story or the amazing attributes of the characters.
16. PACEY WITTER AND JOEY POTTER
While Dawson Leery and Joey Potter went from best friends to lovers in the first season, the latter eventually caught the hots for Pacey Witter, birthing a love triangle.
Although Pacey and Joey’s love story did not commence until later seasons due to her relationship with Dawson, the twosome proved themselves as TV’s most adorable couple in more ways than one. Not to mention Joey’s adorable show of love, which single-handedly raised the romantic bar for other guys.
17. KATE AND SAWYER
When bad-boy attitude meets an independent outlaw spirit. The resultꟷ one of the coolest romance tales ever! Still, wondering why Kate and Sawyer of “Lost” made this list when there is a Jack somewhere?
18. EDWARD CULLEN AND BELLA SWAN
“Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson gave one of the most memorable on-screen renditions of love in their roles on the series. Their portrayal of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen would be forever etched in everyone’s hearts.
The fact that the roleplayers ended up dating in real life further cemented their status as Hollywood’s favorite pair. At least while the relationship lasted.
19. UNCLE PHIL AND AUNT VIV
Will Smith might be the legendary Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but his character’s rich guardians, Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv, deserve the sweetest love credits in the iconic movie.
20. ROSE DEWITT AND JACK BUKATER
Saving the best for the last, the love story of Rose Dewitt and Jack Bukater in “Titanic” still triggers the tear gland. Having Hollywood royalties Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio bring this pair of star-crossed lovers to life was the best casting decision ever made!
These actors played the role so well that Jack and Rose’s epic love story is a tad away from sweeping Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” under the covers. Seriously, who’s cutting onions?!
Next time you find yourself wondering why the world can’t have enough of any of these movies, think adorable TV couples.
