So, I get way too invested in movie and television couples. I'm not proud of the fact, but it happens. It happens with books, too, but for the purposes of this post, we're gonna focus on TV and movie couples because … well, because I want to and I'm writing this, so there. Back to my odd behavior, though, as much as I love shipping certain couples, even I have to admit that many of the cutest, steamiest, or sexiest couples wouldn't work in the real world. Never. Not one single chance. Check out my opinions, then tell me yours!
Rory and Dean were adorable – the perfect high school couple. Except for the fact that they had absolutely nothing in common. They tried, and I think they were good for each other – the first time – but this wasn't meant to last and couldn't have in real life, either. Opposites may attract, but you have to share something, you know?
I will forever ship Josh and Cher, but I don't … I know they're not really related. Even in canon, they're not even step-related anymore, technically, but still. Squick factor.
These types of situations can absolutely occur, but I don't buy an Alison type ever staying with a Ben type – not unless they both changed for the other.
There are seventy-seven thousand reasons House and Cuddy could never work. Their flirtation was hot and (some) fans were happy to see House happy, but the odds are good that they'd split in a real-life romance, too.
Baby is a BABY, okay? Johnny was dreamy when I was nine, but I don't want to see this IRL now. No. Bad.
I said it. In the real world, all of Rachel's friends would be talking her out of this ish.
I am currently rewatching Grey's for the fifth time. In a row. I feel compelled to say this. If this relationship was for real, I'd like to think Cristina would have someone to point out that her mentor is indeed cutting away pieces of her. You know who I ship Yang with? Ross.
IZZIE IS THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD. Why wouldn't this work IRL? Because I cannot believe anyone in the real world would be so stupid as to FORCE someone to see drunk sex as a magical happily ever after. /rant. Sorry.
Not just because the two actors hated each other, either. IRL, I just honestly believe the whole relationship would blow up in text messages within a span of two days and Romeo'd be on to the next one.
This shouldn't have happened on-screen and I can't ever see it happening in the real world, either. Let's just forget this.
This is a guilty pleasure, I love Awkward! I've always hated her relationship with Matty, though. All that sneaking around in the beginning, especially, put a bad taste in my mouth. I think that in a real world scenario, Jenna would know when to step.
Could this possibly work IRL? Could it?
BECAUSE FITZ DOES NOT EVER DESERVE OLIVIA AGAIN, OKAY?
Not that I don't love these two, I just refuse to believe that any couple this adorkable could possibly exist IRL. It's a unicorn.
I know Jackie-in-real-life would recognize Fez as a perv. Right? She'd have to.
Not that they ended up together in the movie, really, but my girl Jules would call out those fuckboy antics IRL, I just know it.
I hate myself for even writing this, but it's true. Especially today, would Annie ever trek across the country and back to meet a man she heard on the radio? All I can think of is the two of them texting and Sam calling her a fat slut when she says no to a dick pic.
And speaking of picks (kind of), who are yours? Any on-screen couples you know would never make it if they were real?
