Valentine’s Day has got me in the mood to talk about love. These are the TV couples that need to get together now.
10. Riley & Maya (Girl Meets World)
The amount of affection and unconditional love between these two is adorable and heartwarming. It would mean a lot if this show would take a bit of a risk and give young lesbian and bisexual fans a relationship they can relate to that’s as sweet and perfect as Cory and Topanga’s.
9. Laurel & Nyssa (Arrow)
Laurel and Nyssa already have one of the strongest relationships on Arrow. Nyssa trained Laurel to help her become a superhero. In turn, Laurel encouraged Nyssa to become a better person, even if it meant taking on– and then destroying– the League of Assassins. Is it too much to ask that they add romance to this already stellar relationship?
8. Jess & Nick (New Girl)
I genuinely don’t understand why they broke up and now the show keeps trying to sell us on Nick being desperately alone when he’s living with his soulmate.
7. Darryl & White Josh (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend)
This was the will-they-won’t-they that I never knew I needed until it happened. At first, I thought it would be a pathetic unrequited crush, but then we got that cheek kiss and that wink and, brother, you can call me “Darryl” because I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.
6. Jessica & Luke (Jessica Jones)
I’m confident Jessica and Luke will end up married, but when we last left off, they were alone and I don’t like it one bit.
5. Mac & Dennis (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)
For years I thought this couple could never happen for real because none of the characters on this show are allowed to find happiness. But, “Mac and Dennis Move to the Suburbs” really put my fears to rest by pointing out that it would not be happiness, it would just be some new territory to explore in this dark and twisted– but still weirdly adorable– relationship.
4. Miles & Tristan (Degrassi: Next Class)
Miles and Tristan both have their flaws and I don’t believe the relationship would be perfect. But, I think the first season of Degrassi: Next Class gave us every reason to believe that resuming their relationship would let them grow together and they’d be really good for each other. I can’t wait to see how it plays out and I hope they don’t drop the ball.
3. Alec & Magnus (Shadowhunters)
My head says “they’ll end up together, it’s okay if the show let’s it develop slowly over time” but my heart says “why aren’t they married yet?”
2. Shoshanna & Ray (Girls)
Their sweet friendship last season just further convinced me that they need to resume being in love. Let’s do this, season 5.
1. Dinesh & Gilfoyle (Silicon Valley)
Yes, season one burned me by writing an absolutely perfect plot for them to end up together in the finale and then just not doing it, but season 2 sucked me back in by letting them almost instantly drop the antagonistic act and just be beautifully in sync. Watch the “fucking ninja” moment and try to convince me that Dinesh didn’t want to attack kiss Gilfoyle. You can’t do it.
