    These Will-They/Won't They TV Couples Were Frustrating As Hell, But People Can't Help But Love Them

    Just do it already!

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us some of their favorite will-they/won't-they TV couples. Here's what they said:

    1. Liza and Charles, Younger

    TV Land

    So much chemistry and angst! They need to get together, like yesterday.


    2. Ross and Rachel, Friends


    I loved their on-again/off-again relationship, and I'm just really glad they ended up together. —lunylovegood

    3. Ian and Mickey, Shameless


    These boys belong together! They have one of the best TV romances I’ve ever witnessed. They're family, best friends, lovers, and soulmates. They grew up together, had a lot of ups and downs, took care of each other when needed, and stepped up to every damn challenge that came their way. They love each other immensely and it breaks my heart that they’re apart right now.

    —Tamanna Dawra, Facebook

    4. Blair and Chuck, Gossip Girl

    The CW

    I loved the way that Chuck transformed from being this total douche into this incredible man just because of Blair. —gracemarshall

    5. Sabrina and Harvey, Sabrina the Teenage Witch

    The WB

    It's so cute how they ended the series together. —rebeccaa4c0d73da6

    6. Hanna and Caleb, Pretty Little Liars


    Caleb was always there for Hanna and loved her unconditionally. He would do anything for her and her friends. —kohnegirl

    7. Peyton and Lucas, One Tree Hill

    The CW

    I know a lot of people liked Lucas with Brooke, but it always had to be #Leyton. When they finally got married I cried for days. —emsorr25

    8. Mike and Susan, Desperate Housewives


    I mean he literally woke up from a coma and completely forgot who she was and still managed to fall back in love with her. —taylorc4f5b952b6

    9. Jane and Rafael, Jane the Virgin

    The CW

    It’d been such a long time coming with them throughout all of the seasons and when they finally got together I was over the moon! I just hope it stays that way next season...—jeffatkinsgirl

    10. Kelly and Ryan, The Office


    Their relationship was so messy, and they totally SHOULD NOT have been together. But honestly, when you put two hilarious forces like Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak together, you end up with an incredibly humorous relationship. Funniest stuff ever!!!


    11. Robin and Barney, How I Met Your Mother


    The way the finale played out broke my heart, but they will always be my favorite. They were legend-(wait for it)-dary. —kaylacarolus

    12. Ben and Leslie, Parks and Recreation


    Their relationship evolved so naturally from friends to something more, and Ben was so selfless when Leslie was running her city council campaign. He put her career first because he knew that it was the most important thing to her. Their relationship was hard work like a relationship in real life is. Plus, they were never toxic or bitter towards each other during their breakup like other TV couples sometimes are (looking at you, Ross and Rachel). They really were the perfect couple and Ben Wyatt will forever be my dream man. —hquinn31

    13. Nick and Jess, New Girl


    I shipped them from episode one! I screamed when they finally got together, cried when they broke up, happy-danced when they got back together, and applauded when they ended up together. They were such a great functioning, yet dysfunctional, couple. Even after things got weird, they managed to keep a healthy friendship going, laughed about it, let go of jealousy, and made their friendship work. Hands down favorite TV couple ever. —prncesskristyn

    14. Jonah and Amy, Superstore


    They're so pure and their relationship progressed so naturally. They started off as butting co-workers and then became work besties. The status of their relationship is still up in the air, but OMG, I love them soooo freaking much!!! And that season finale?!?! DAAAAAMMNNN. —misshallah

    15. Piper and Alex, Orange is the New Black


    They have a somewhat toxic relationship, but I love them together!


    16. Matt and Heather, 7th Heaven

    The WB

    He broke up her wedding, ran away with her, and they didn't get together. Then five seasons later, he told her he wanted to leave his wife for her and they still don't get together! —dougfancy101290

    17. Cece and Schmidt, New Girl


    Although they sometimes made questionable choices, it was clear that they should be together. It was so frustrating when their timing was off and they were crushing on each other, but dating someone else. Luckily, it ended up with them together. —sjalsum

    18. Jackie and Hyde, That 70's Show


    They were perfect for each other, despite being portrayed as polar opposites. They ended up bringing out the best in each other. Such a shame how the writers just annihilated their relationship and paired Jackie with Fez. Never forget!!!


    19. JD and Elliott, Scrubs


    To me, they are one of the most realistic on-again/off-again pairings from a sitcom. Though things were definitely exaggerated, they were the perfect depiction of a couple of 20-somethings trying to figure out what they want and learning to commit to that. And that Season 8 finale (aka the REAL finale) just makes me bawl like a baby. —Erinne Beachler, Facebook

    20. Aria and Ezra, Pretty Little Liars


    I know it's probably weird, but I still love Aria and Ezra from Pretty Little Liars. I know that the practicality of their relationship was nonexistent seeing that he was her teacher, but for some reason I just love their relationship. —alsagerk623

    21. Jake and Amy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine


    They have one of the healthiest relationships on television! Even when they had feelings for one another, they had enough respect for each other to not interfere in their separate love lives or play games. —kwazycat123

    22. Jemma and Fitz, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


    Fitzsimmons!! They were introduced as one person in the first episode because they were best friends who were always together. They’ve since grown into two very individual people, who can live separately but would never want to. They sometimes disagree but they always support each other. —53124

    23. Kurt and Blaine, Glee


    Their coming together was SO sweet. After Kurt moved to a new high school because of bullying, Blaine took him under his wing. They were best friends until one single kiss...the rest was history! From breaking up multiple times to getting engaged twice, these boys took gay couples on TV to an entirely new level.


    24. Ted and Robin, How I Met Your Mother


    I have watched HIMYM nine times through and every single time, Ted and Robin still mess with my heart. After all of that back and forth it ends up working for them in the end. I love it. —annat123

    25. Fry and Leela, Futurama

    Comedy Central

    They tried to deny it, tried dating others, and tried and failed to be together. That’s usually the kiss of death on a TV show, especially a comedy. But for these two, the fan payoff was huge and lasting. Those two were meant to be!


    26. Rachel and Finn, Glee


    I always enjoyed watching where their relationship would go since the beginning in Season 1. It was really interesting to see their love develop and, of course, equally heartbreaking when he tragically passed. I still rewatch episodes and it tugs on my heartstrings. Their relationship is definitely one of the best in TV history. —aligleek13

    27. Mike and Phoebe, Friends


    Mike loved how quirky Phoebe was and he stood up to his parents for her. And even though he had marriage issues after his divorce, he overcame that for her too. —jsws17

    28. Matty and Jenna, Awkward


    They literally broke up and got back together soooo many times throughout the series, but you could just tell that they were destined to be together! Their chemistry was out of this world, they would drop anything to help each other, and they loved each other so deeply! —carolync4178cbdc3

    29. Stiles and Lydia, Teen Wolf


    I’ll yell this from the rooftops every single day but STILES AND LYDIA FROM TEEN WOLF!!!! When Lydia finally opened up to Stiles, the most beautiful friendship blossomed between two intelligent, caring, and extremely witty individuals. It took SIX YEARS for the writers to get them together, but it happened so beautifully when Stiles got erased from existence and Lydia realized that there was someone missing from her life whom she deeply loved. She ended up opening up a portal ~with her love~ and saving her man! Ugh, my heart. —nyltiak

    30. Damon and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

    The CW

    They were completely in love with each other and repeatedly received the short end of the stick. Still, they prevailed through horrendous times and ended up finding peace together. —aangelique513

    31. Cory and Topanga, Boy Meets World


    Their relationship demonstrated the struggles of growing up together. They always allowed love to conquer, even in the most difficult times. —sunnysideup2

    32. Jackson and April, Grey's Anatomy


    My favorite couple of all time is Jackson and April! They were so cute together and had so much chemistry between them! I cried a lot when they got divorced, and even today I’m not over it. I hope they get back together in the near future because I miss them so much!! —fleurvfr

    33. Josh and Liza, Younger

    TV Land

    They fight and break up all the time, but you can tell they deeply love and care for each other. They would do anything for one another. —aleciac48c2418df

    34. Zack and Kelly, Saved by the Bell


    He tried to date her, finally did, they broke up, almost got back together but then didn’t, and eventually found their way back together and got married. They are PERFECT!


    35. Sookie and Eric, True Blood


    Their chemistry was sizzling and all that pent up sexual energy drove me nuts! I couldn’t wait for the moment they finally did what so many fans wanted. It was fire 🔥🔥🔥.


    36. Annie and Liam, 90210

    The CW

    They went through so much together, including a motorcycle crash, getting shot, as well as so many people getting in the way of their potential relationship. So glad they ended up together! —aangelique513

    37. Kara and Mon-El, Supergirl

    The CW

    They've been separated twice, and Kara has even had to deal with the fact that he had another wife. They never wanted to separate, but some dumb AF force made them. At least Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood, the actors that play them, are together in real life. —girlsportsfanaticyt

    38. Mark and Lexie, Grey's Anatomy


    I’m rewatching the series and it breaks my heart so much. Like Lexie’s last words, they were meant to be. —aslia4dfb69e73

    39. Booth and Bones, Bones


    You knew from day one, I knew from day one, it almost HAPPENED on day one...then six years later they finally got their shit together (albeit via an unplanned pregnancy but, ya know). —katies478db50d3

    40. Max and Kyle, Living Single


    They just had a unique dynamic that made them so entertaining to watch!


    41. Rose and The Doctor, Doctor Who


    Hands down, they made me fall in love with the show, plus Billie Piper and David Tenant are just amazing!!! —d4bc79428e

    42. Logan and Veronica, Veronica Mars

    The CW

    Their relationship is kinda problematic, but the chemistry is SIZZLING!


    43. Nathaniel and Rebecca, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    The CW

    I live and die for Nathaniel and Rebecca on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. He started off unlikable and arrogant, and then truly became Rebecca's friend, and then lover, and then back to friend again. When he found out she was mentally ill, he didn't lose interest at all; he learned more about her disease and what she needed from him and respected her boundaries. He believes in her and has her back like no one else does, and I can't wait to see if they end up together in the upcoming final season!! —isaaclahey

    44. Emma and Hook, Once Upon A Time


    Their road to love was a rocky one (no pun intended, seeing as when they first met Emma bashed in Killian’s head with a rock). But soon, Killian’s love for Emma helped her to learn how to trust, and to believe in love again. In turn, Emma’s love for him turned Captain Hook from a villain to a hero. Their relationship epitomized the transformative power of true love. And true love, as Rumpelstiltskin once said, is the most powerful magic of all. —angels4d4906ef4

    45. Meg and Castiel, Supernatural

    The CW

    Oof, Meg and Castiel from Supernatural! You know it's true love when one of Lucifer's most devoted followers sacrifices herself so that her angel can escape.


    46. Melinda and Coulson, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


    Over five seasons of a slow burn before they even kiss (the decoy May doesn't count). When they finally got together I fucking jumped off the couch cheering.


    47. Jan and Michael, The Office


    If they didnt have such a crazy history, we would not have had "Dinner Party."


    48. Connor and Oliver, How to Get Away With Murder


    It doesn’t get better than them. —l4ee671912

    49. Lady Mary and Matthew, Downton Abbey


    Omg, Lady Mary and Matthew on Downton Abbey! It remains one of the best proposals on television ever. After everything they had been through, so many missed opportunities and misunderstandings...for them to finally realize they were in love was such a powerful moment. —angels4d4906ef4

    50. David and Maddie, Moonlighting


    David Addison and Maddie Hayes from Moonlighting are the OG will-they/won't-they couple. It's basically Bones, but 20 years earlier and with crazier storylines.


    51. Dwight and Angela, The Office


    During the whole series I kept screaming at the TV telling them to get together!!! I was sooo happy when Dwight proposed. —vpcollins06

    52. Luke and Lorelai, Gilmore Girls

    The WB

    Luke and Lorelai all the way! I waited almost five seasons for them to get together while they dated other people. Then he sees her face and it all falls into place, because Luke can waltz. :) —lizb40223053c

    53. Jim and Pam, The Office


    Watching them pine over each other and knowing that they were meant to be was so heartbreaking, so when Jim finally asked her out at the end of Season 3 it was such a joyous moment. I’ve watched the show so many times, and every time Jim comes back from New York I cry with joy when Pam says “I’m sorry, what was the question?”


    54. Shawn and Juliet, Psych


    Omg, Shawn and Juliet!!! If I can’t have him I’m glad at least Juliet does.


    55. Josh and Donna, The West Wing


    They took six and a half seasons to get together but it was obvious that they loved each other from the very beginning. I also like that it happened naturally: Donna was only meant to be in the first episode and Josh originally had another love interest, but they had such great chemistry that they kept Donna as a main character for all seven seasons. —theprincessloch

    56. Kala and Wolfgang, Sense8


    They had an attraction from the beginning of the show and had many intimate moments that were technically "in their heads" before finally being together in person. Such an amazing show and they are the ultimate will-they/won't-they ship. —marissaz4fece125d

    57. Spike and Buffy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    The WB

    I love how they built it up over a few seasons, with Spike trying to be a better man and look out for Buffy and her sister Dawn. When Buffy “died” he was devastated, and I loved watching them connect and grow closer once she came back. Plus when they hooked up they quite literally brought the house down!


    58. Harvey and Donna, Suits


    They're amazing and I want them to be together sooo much!! —natyperess1

    59. Fran and Mr. Sheffield, The Nanny


    Omg, I'm obsessed with Fran Fine and Maxwell Sheffield’s relationship because they went through so much together. Like, when he said he loved her then took it back, or when he started to commit more to the relationship and then they finally (after five long years!!) ended up together and got married. And somehow during all of that, it still managed to be extremely funny! —sammiechung

    60. Oliver and Felicity, Arrow

    The CW

    It was so funny in the first few seasons, and when they finally get together everyone just went "Yass finally!" —theaudreyb

    61. Chris and Ann, Parks and Recreation


    Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins on Parks and Recreation were one of the most legendary will-they/won’t-they couples because when they dated they were so invested in each other, but when they weren't together, they would give each other looks like they were looking at their soulmate. Thankfully, they had a baby together after she asked him to be the dad, and they developed their relationship from there. And in the final episode they revealed that they had another baby!!


    62. Castle and Beckett, Castle


    Richard freaking Castle and Kate freaking Beckett!!!!! Holy hell that relationship was a rollercoaster of emotions until they finally broke down and got together.


    63. Frasier and Roz, Frasier


    Frasier and Roz were a great take on the classic trope. It took forever for them to hook up, they realized it was a mistake, but then they stayed really good friends afterward. Yes, Harry Burns, it can happen! —rsmith8235

    64. Niles and Daphne, Frasier


    It's soooo toxic at first, but adorable. Then when they (mostly Niles) actually mature and the relationship grows, it's so sweet. And Niles actually starts becoming his own person. —rsmith8235

    65. Vaughn and Sydney, Alias


    I died every single time they looked at each other.
