Ross and Rachel were the 90s "It" couple, everyone loved them and everyone wanted to be them. They were the cutest and there's no denying that. But "cute" isn't what makes a couple! If cuteness was the basis of all couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pritt would still be together, Anna Farris and Chris Pratt would be together, and I'd still be getting married to my first fiancé.

There were so many honest to God issues with their relationship. Don't get me wrong, I find them highly cute. But as previously stated, cuteness isn't what makes a couple. In the grand scheme of things, you have to look past the couple's cuteness and look at the essence of the relationship. I could probably pick and choose and dice and chop at their relationship to come up with a novel length of issues, but nobody wants that. So here are only 7 reasons that they weren't great together.

1. They WERE on a break.

So in all reality, Rachel is so full of crap to be mad at him! When a couple is on a break, what he did was ok, just ask Taylor Swift. So he did not cheat, they were on a break.

2. They're TOO different.

Okay, I hear that opposites attract but come on! Rachel was such a worldly person, and Ross was the complete opposite of that. Ross was family orientated and Rachel was ruled by the fashion world.

3. How Many Times Does a Couple Have to Breakup until they realize, THEY DON'T BELONG TOGETHER?

Let's take a moment to think about this: if a couple keeps breaking up, doesn't that say something about the way they jive? Or better yet the way they don't? Say your best friend comes to you and says they're getting back with that girl/guy for the umpteenth time, you'd absolutely freak! And then you'd tell her to get her holy sh*t together! Now THAT'S Ross and Rachel.

4. They're communication is just out of sync, completely!

Again: THEY WERE ON A BREAK!. But clearly, just obviously, that means different things to people. And they were always fighting about everything.

5. Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer Didn't Have Great on Screen Chemistry.

From an actor's point of view, I can clearly see the way they didn't like each other, I didn't need a Cosmo article to tell me that they didn't truly get along in person.

6. They Both Cling to the Past.

Let it go, let it go. But they never could. Fights in the past continued to effect their future. And as long as you cling onto past mistakes, you can never move forward.

7. Ross is Possessive

Anyone who's seen the show knows it's just part of his nature. Some girls like that but Rachel was not one of those of those girls at all.


Although so many downfalls, they did manage to have quite a few cute and romantic moments together. And whether or not you ship the famous couple, they will always have a significant place in the show and in our hearts.

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

views

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.
