1. April and Andy, "Parks and Recreation"

He's a lovable oaf, who loves everyone and is always up to help (though… you may just want to do it yourself). She's a sharp-as-tacks sarcastic lady whose complete disinterest in anything is astounding. But there is one thing April Ludgate is interested in - her husband, Andy Dwyer. You know that saying, "Opposites attract?" These two balance each other out in perfect harmony, and to extremely funny results. But there's also something pure and genuine about their relationship. Two peas in a weirdly shaped pod.

2. Jenna and Paul, "30 Rock"

She's the famous Jenna Maroney, and he's a well-known Jenna Maroney impersonator. What they have most in common is their intense love of Jenna Maroney. But they also both love unimaginably kinky sex, playing mind games with people, and all things alt culture. Basically, if anyone is going to those clubs that Stefon talks about, it's Jenna and Paul. They've been through a lot of highs, and some lows as well. But they've seen it through, and at the end of "30 Rock" they got married in a surprise wedding that took place at a funeral. Paul took Jenna's first and last name.

Cece is a hot Indian model whose used to getting everything (and everyone) she wants. Schmidt is a frat-guy-meets-Martha-Stewart. They were an unlikely couple from the start, but it's really clear they care about each other. And, you know, she did kind of call off her wedding for him.

4. Bonnie and Jeremy, "The Vampire Diaries"

Get ready for this one, it's a doozy. At first, Bonnie was reluctant to date Jeremy because he's her best friend's little brother, who she grew up with. But their chemistry was undeniable, and he pushed her to become stronger with her magic while being safe. Oh, yeah - did I forget to mention Bonnie's a witch? And Jeremy wasn't supernatural, but he has an invincibility ring, so when something supernatural kills him, he comes back to life. Dying and coming back to life changes a person - meaning, Jeremy can see ghosts now. But Jeremy eventually did get caught with his pants down (er, his ring off), and he was killed. Bonnie did a spell to bring him back to life, but the spell took too much of her energy and lead to her untimely demise. So now he's alive, and she's dead. But they can still talk. Told you it was complicated.

The thing I've always found so enamoring about Bonnie and Jeremy is that they're both only tolerable when they're together. As separate entities, they're kind of annoying and blah. But together, they're interesting, fun, and quite endearing. With that much of an improvement, it might be safe to say they are the greatest couple of all time.

5. April and Jackson, "Grey's Anatomy"

This relationship could have been pretty conventional. First they became best friends, then they became lovers. Classic love story, am I right? But then there's the twist - April was a 28-year-old virgin who was saving herself for marriage. It's really clear that April and Jackson are in love with each other, but April's struggle with her faith became quite an obstacle. It looks like the two might work it out, but who knows with this show - they'll probably both die before they get the chance.

6. The Doctor and River, "Doctor Who"

You thought Jeremy and Bonnie were complicated? This one's going to melt your brain. The Doctor and River are both time travelers, which means he met her the day she died, but she had been married to him for quite some time at that point. She was born to kill him, literally raised as a psychopathic weapon hell bent on killing The Doctor (it's complicated, but obviously she got that out of her system). And that's not all! The Doctor traveled with Amy and Rory for most of the time period of his love affair with River. Turns out Amy and Rory are River's parents. Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.

We don't get to see a lot of River and The Doctor being lovey dovey, because that's not what the story is about. But they do reference adventures they have, just the two of them, many of which could be considered dates. And we always crave more of them. Their story may be complicated, but their love just is.

7. Bones and Booth, "Bones"

She's a hyperlogical Atheist scientist who takes everything literally. He's an All-American FBI agent with a lot of faith, who can relate to anyone. It took them six years of working together to finally "work together" and make a baby, but it was always clear they were right for each other. The ying to each other's yang.

8. Olivia and Fitz, "Scandal"

The President and his mistress. I know, I know. It sounds sleazy. It's not, though. Fitz was out of love with his wife long before he met Olivia. But the President of the United States can't divorce his wife - The scandal! He does really love her, and has even seriously discussed resigning from his presidency just to be with her. Now that's a unique love story!

9. Dexter and Hannah, "Dexter"

10. Tessa and Ryan, "Suburgatory"

Tessa is a wise-beyond-her-years high school student. Ryan is a low IQ jock, a small town celebrity who's the best at every sport. It's kind of beautiful, actually. He makes her relax and have fun, and she challenges him to think, sometimes. As a side note, Ryan just might be the funniest character on television.
