I mean, this is TRUE LOVE!

3. Fans cheer once that ring is on her finger! We end the season with happy thoughts and prospects for a wedding and babies.

4. Like a good fangirl/fanboy, you follow them on all social media sites so you can continue to follow their relationship "after the cameras stop rolling."
