    19 Teen Drama Couples That Broke Our Hearts When They Didn't Get Their Happy Endings

    "He's your first love — I intend to be your last."

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which teen drama TV couples should have been endgame, but weren't. Here are some of their responses:

    🚨 Warning: Spoilers ahead! 🚨

    1. Sam and Mercedes from Glee:

    Sam tells Mercedes she looks beautiful at prom and asks her to dance
    Fox

    "They were so good for each other, supported each other, and were super cute."

    2. Bonnie and Enzo from The Vampire Diaries:

    Enzo says he'll still be in love with Bonnie even if he stays a vampire and that he'll watch her grow old and be as beautiful then as she is now
    The CW

    "Say it with me: ‘Bonnie deserved better!' Out of all the Vampire Diaries couples, she and Enzo were done the dirtiest."

    3. Rory and Jess from Gilmore Girls:

    Jess confronts Rory about why she dropped out of Yale, says he knows her better than anyone and this isn't her
    The WB

    "They were passionate about the same things, had good banter, and were able to inspire each other in a way no one else could. Their main issue was communication, but Jess matured a lot while he was away. I really think they should have found their way back to each other."

    4. Miles and Lola from Degrassi: Next Class:

    Lola helps Miles write his play
    Netflix

    "They were perfect for each other, understood each other, and had the best chemistry."

    "They were each other's best match, no question. Lola was instantly accepting of Miles and loved him for who he was, while Miles was the only person who ever took Lola seriously and valued her intelligence — plus, he literally wrote a whole play for her! They were a thousand times better than Tristan and Miles, who were never good for each other. I'm glad the writers at least implied on Twitter that they got back together."

    5. Jude and Connor from The Fosters:

    Connor kisses Jude
    Freeform

    "They were young, but they supported each other unconditionally. Jude never had a good relationship after Connor left."

    6. Veronica and Logan from Veronica Mars:

    Logan tells Veronica he thought their story was "epic"
    UPN

    "They should have never killed Logan off. I'm still bitter."

    7. Sean and Emma from Degrassi: The Next Generation:

    Sean says nothing could replace the real thing with Emma
    CTV

    "They were meant to be. It still pisses me off to this day that Emma ended up with Spinner."

    8. Klaus and Caroline from The Vampire Diaries:

    Klaus to Caroline: "He's your first love, I intend to be your last."
    The CW

    "They had so much chemistry. They should have ended up together."

    9. Emily and Maya from Pretty Little Liars:

    Emily and Maya kiss in the photo booth for the first time, Maya calls her "crazy beautiful"
    Freeform

    "They were endgame to me."

    10. Lane and Dave from Gilmore Girls:

    Dave and Lane kiss for the first time
    The WB

    "They were done so dirty. Lane should have been with Dave — her and Zack's relationship felt forced."

    11. Nate and Serena from Gossip Girl:

    Nate says "of course" he loved Serena, calls her the "most beautiful, amazing, alive" person he's ever known
    The CW

    "Dan was not good for Serena. Despite Nate’s problems, he was a really good guy."

    12. Pacey and Andie from Dawson's Creek:

    Pacey calls Andie the most important being to ever grace his existence, says he's falling hopelessly in love with her
    The WB / Via buzzfeed.com

    "I love Pacey and Joey, but Pacey and Andie were much better. They had more chemistry, more love, and they were always there for each other. What the writers did with Andie's character bugs me to this day."

    13. Carla and Samuel from Elite:

    Carla: "Congratulations, you played me and you won," Samuel: "I lost you," Carla: "You never had me"
    Netflix

    "Their chemistry was simply off the charts. There was literally no reason for them to be paired up with other people in Season 3. I'm forever devastated that they didn't end up together."

    14. Aria and Jason from Pretty Little Liars:

    Freeform

    "They had chemistry and Jason seemed to really care for her for who she was. I was so happy when they got together — I wish it would have worked out instead of Aria marrying her former teacher."

    15. Scott and Allison from Teen Wolf:

    MTV

    "They were perfect for each other and had been through so much. Her last words literally shook me."

    16. Elena and Stefan from The Vampire Diaries:

    Elena: "I've been so selfish because I love you so much and I know how much you love me"
    The CW

    "They were way better than Elena and Damon."

    17. Brooke and Lucas from One Tree Hill:

    Lucas says the difference between Brooke and Peyton is he loves Brooke and that he wants to be with her not Peyton
    The WB

    “Brooke and Lucas had such amazing chemistry and their scenes together were always absolutely incredible. I’m more of a Brooke Davis fan than anything else, and just the heartfelt moments she shared with Lucas were amazing. I’ll never forgive Lucas for cheating on Brooke with Peyton (multiple times) because Brucas should’ve been endgame and they were perfect for each other.”

    18. Xander and Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

    The WB

    "Anya should not have died in the finale. I'm still mad about it."

    19. And finally, Imogen and Fiona from Degrassi: The Next Generation:

    Fiona: "Don't ever leave okay?" Imogen kisses her forehead
    TeenNick

    "They meant a lot to me in terms of representation, but they were also one of the best couples on the show overall. They went through so much and deserved so much better — their characters only broke up so Imogen could stay on the show an extra year, which was pointless. I'm glad the actors think they got back together, at least."
