Anthony had to admire Johanna for a long time from a distance before they wed. He would sing to her outside of her window.

Like Edward, who planted Sandra’s favorite flowers in front of her house and wooed her like a goddamn gentleman.

MELTING.

Edward Bloom, while charming, wasn’t a saint. Remember this affair in Big Fish?

Ugh, and we can’t forget that time Edward had to watch as the love of his life Kim dated the d-bag from hell.

ICK.

Gotham is the worst of the worst, but Vicki Vale was still enamored by her knight in spandex armor.

You probably wish you could erase Planet of the Apes from your memory, and you absolutely wish you never saw Mark Wahlberg kiss an ape. But love is not for the faint of heart, people.

11. Love is inevitable, even for those who think they’re better off alone.

We’ve all felt this way, Edward.

13. His characters are willing to sacrifice anything for the ones they love, even if that means they have to let them go.

In Corpse Bride Emily’s love for Victor is undeniable, but she ultimately lets him go so he can be with someone more… well, alive.

Kim moves on to create a normal life, but she’s still in love with Edward. Meanwhile, he lives up the hill and creates ice sculptures of her. It’s disgustingly sweet.

14. The music he chooses is absolutely charming.

Danny Elfman is a master of swooning, enchanting love songs.

15. Like all tales of romance, love would be nothing without trust.
