7 Reasons Cory And Topanga Are Actual Relationship Goals

Besides Ross and Rachel, Cory and Topanga are the most iconic couple of the 90s and early 00s. They were actual childhood sweethearts and had more love for each other than most people feel in a lifetime. Here's ten reasons why they're the definition of "relationship goals."

1. They accept each other

Even when Topanga was going through her weird hippie phase and Cory and Shawn thought she came from another planet, Cory still thought it was kinda cool that no matter what, Topanga stayed true to herself. And Topanga loved Cory just the way he was with his curly hair, goofy attitude, inseparable best friend, and all.

2. Fighting makes them stronger

Cory and Topanga didn't go without their fair share of spats. When they had issues, they didn't go running, they worked them out. They communicated with each other to solve the problem and come out even stronger in the end.

3. They always forgive each other

Sure they both made some mistakes along the way (hey, Cory, remember when you kissed that girl on the ski trip?), but they always cooled off, talked it out, and forgave each other.

4. They understand each other

Sure, knowing each other since you were babies is a big plus in understanding someone, but Cory and Topanga had a deep understanding of each other so they could always tell what the other was feeling.

5. They are their own people

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F03%2F6360586513779783101076577057_anigif_enhanced-buzz-1002-1354037667-5_preview.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=50&h=51c8b4070d3f18bd8e0307bc32d1ba94656162e62df8b6763530980024089796&size=980x&c=1420800024 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F03%252F6360586513779783101076577057_anigif_enhanced-buzz-1002-1354037667-5_preview.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D50%26h%3D51c8b4070d3f18bd8e0307bc32d1ba94656162e62df8b6763530980024089796%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1420800024%22%7D" expand=1]

The beautiful thing about Cory and Topanga is that they don't rely on each other for their happiness. They are two complete people by themselves and create a whole couple together. When they were broken up, they missed each other but they didn't stop living their separate lives. Whatever they did, it worked out for them.

6. They never give up

Cory and Topanga broke up and got back together countless times throughout the series but they never wanted to be apart from each other. When Topanga was sure their relationship could survive, Cory reminded her of all the reasons they were perfect for each other. When Topanga was supposed to move away, she came up all the way back and showed up at Cory's house in the pouring rain. When everyone told them they were too young to get married, they proved them wrong.

7. They love each other unconditionally

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
