10 Ways Adonis and Bianca's Relationship Is A Millennial Love Story We're Here For

10 Ways Adonis and Bianca's Relationship Is A Millennial Love Story We're Here For

They go beyond the label of "relationship goals."


There are so many couples on TV and in movies that people dove "relationship goals" or "OTP" (one true pairing. We have Bughead (Betty and Jughead), Delenia (Damon and Elena), and of course Rocky and Adrian. But not a lot of them are relatable to the people who watch these couples on screen.

But one couple who has been a fan favorite for a lot of people is the relationship between Adonis Creed and Bianca Taylor played by Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson. In the first movie, we see them grow from being neighbors to becoming lovers and in the second film, we watch their relationship grow into a marriage and they become parents. All while we see them go through the ups and downs of this journey we call life.

1. They have the realest meet cute ever.

When Donnie moves to Philly into a loft building for millennials, he's disturbed by the music blaring from his downstairs neighbor. He goes down and bangs on the door, only to have the door open by Bianca who was in the middle of mixing her music. He can't even find words to say for a minute cause he's just hypnotized by this girl. It's something you don't usually see in dramatic movies and it isn't cheesy.

2. They both have personal goals.


They aren't that couple that is attached to the hip to each other. They both have their own personal goals and they love to see each other achieving their dreams. Adonis has that smile when he watches Bianca sing and Bianca would shadowbox when Adonis is fighting in the ring.

3. They motivate each other.

Having that person by your side cheering you on is the most motivating feeling a person can have. Both of these characters are in each other's corners during those big moments whether it be the biggest fight in your career or your first live concert in front of a whole crowd.

4. They keep each other grounded.

When they elevate in their careers, neither let's the other get a big head and reminds the person where they started and what's really important to them. When Adonis is going to fight Drago both times, Bianca keeps him in a stable ground especially after the beating he has after the first fight. She supports her man but at the same time, she keeps him in check when his ego gets the best of him.

5. They're willingly to make it work when life gets hard.


In the movies, Adonis is beaten to a pulp by Viktor Drago and Bianca is at his side and helps him recover from the fight that could've taken his life. All while Bianca suffers from progressive hearing loss and eventually will go fully deaf. Most guys would just leave and not want to deal. But Adonis is willing to make it work with her because of love. He even starts learning sign language with her so he could communicate with her. Name a guy who takes the time to be there for his girl.

6. They genuinely love each other.


Their relationship is more than just a sexual relationship, they are both lovers and friends. They are two characters who appear as closed off are able to actual conversations with each other about their hopes and fears. The only person Adonis can talk to about the pressures of having the name "Creed" and having to live up to his father's legacy is Bianca. Bianca opens up to Adonis about her hearing loss and her fear of their own kids having the same condition genetically. Between the first and second movie, we see a relationship established over three years and the puppy love that the started at grew to a genuine real love.

7. Their little family is so beautiful.


We see Adonis and Bianca have a daughter in Creed 2 and we see them become new parents. A lot of people loved seeing the black family displayed in movies so beautifully. One of the heart-wrenching challenges they face is when their daughter, Amara, is born deaf and we see them both go through the devastating news and finding the strength in each other to be there strong for their baby. We see them at the end of the movie visiting Apollo's grave and she has the same hearing aids her mother has, foreshadowing them being a united front as a family and future children to come in the next movies.

8. They are a team in and outside the ring.

Not only are they a team as a couple, but they're also a team in life. Whether it be raising a family or going into a fight, they got each other's back. They move across the country from Philadelphia to Los Angelas together to start their new life and go through expecting a baby. Going through life's moments and being the safety net for the other person.

9. They can keep it 100 with each other.

This couple has a "No BS Rule" meaning they are honest and don't keep secrets from each other. Whatever's going on, they aren't afraid to check to other person and be truthful with each other at the same time. Their moments just laying down on the floor and just letting the other person in is just touching.

10. Their romance is not picture perfect but it's real love.


All the moments they have together are not what you expect in a basic love story. Case in point, When Donnie gets into a fight at Bianca's show, she's scared at the kind of person he becomes when he's angry. But later we see her fly to London to be there for his first official fight and she's able to understand how much pain he's kept in over so many years and he felt safe to finally let it go. Fast forward to Creed 2 when he proposes to Bianca, she couldn't hear him the first time and he was able to shake off the nerves and spoke from the heart. What makes their story so beautiful and genuine are that those moments are real and it shows two people falling in love.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
