Best TV show Couples Ever

5 TV couples that  have made our relationship expectations way too high

The best part of any television series is a good love story, am I right?


I absolutely love stupid television. It doesn't necessarily mean stupid like 'Impractical Jokers' or 'Jersey Shore,' but television that is so entertaining for having the wildest storylines ever. But, the television I love the most, is the ones that have powerful couples who genuinely make you believe in love again. Here are my top 5 TV couples of all time that you can agree to agree on.

5. Marshall and Lily- 'How I Met Your Mother.'

Possibly one of the funniest shows on TV, and now Hulu, has one of the strongest romances ever. Lilly and Marshall go through marriage, babies, love, and loss throughout the course of this series and are the couple you always pull for. Even though they aren't necessarily the main focus of how Ted meets his kids mother, they really add to all that HIMYM is and how amazing the show was.

4. Rory and Jess- 'Gilmore Girls'

I loved this show when I watched my freshman year of college. It always super hard to pick between Rory and Jess and Rory and Dean, but the soft spot in my heart will always belong to Jess. Milo Ventimiglia perfectly plays bad-boy Jess and how different he is from Rory really makes me believe that their love is real. Flash forward to the Year in a Life, and my money is on Jess (if you know what scene I'm talking about)! P.S. Yes the photo may be blurry, but the show is older, so give me a break!

3. Tim and Lyla- 'Friday Night Lights'

Possibly the wildest romance on television. The drunk-all-the-time high school football player and his best friends girl. A beautiful couple to stay the least. Taylor Kitsch and Minka Kelly really make me believe that a wild romance between two beautiful people can make us all believe that the most random relationships can (sort of) make it.

2. Chuck and Blair- 'Gossip Girl'


Rich kid love story with all the bumps in a roller coaster. But, their love is something that makes me always believe that love is there. They both play SO HARD TO GET, but in the end, they know their hearts will only belong to each other. All in all, I have one word - GOALS! Their relationship has so many life lessons weaved into it, and it leaves us always thinking about those 3 words and 8 letters.

1. Nathan and Haley- ' One Tree Hill'

My favorite television show of all time, there was no way that Naley would take any spot other than the top! Their love is ever lasting, and always gave me hope that no matter what, love never dies.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.
