There’s a moment in every great story when it seems that all is lost: the Ministry has fallen, Voldemort is in Hogwarts, and the Avengers have failed to stop Thanos. For us such stories are epic but LOVE STORIES is what consumes us. We love ‘love stories’. We romanticise it. We make it a part of our own world. We love shipping two characters. In yesteryears, people idealized romantic songs but today in addition to the songs, pop culture world has also played the part in shaping the idea of romance. For the romantics among us, this world instantly delivers a feeling of emotional intensity. If you’re seeking those romantic highs then you are at the right place. In the most romantic month of the year, we are here with the topmost romantic pop culture stories.
Ross and Rachel
You also probably gasped when Ross and Rachel kissed for the first time outside Central Perk in the rain. They have been the Romeo & Juliet of the 21st century. Despite all their “we were on break’s”, significant others, apartment shifts, and hairdos, Ross has been in love with Rachel since Day 1. But for all the people who had a doubt about Rachel’s love for her lobster, just remember she did get off the plane!
Tony Stark and Pepper Potts
Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced us to one of Marvel’s most enduring romance. Pepper and Tony’s relationship has gone from two people simply working together to a romantic bond, and even to fighting crime and supervillains together.

Superman and Lois Lane
They are the beloved and immediately recognizable fictional couples of DC world. It’s not always been the easiest road, but Clark and Lois seem to have a way of finding themselves back together, even when the universe itself tries to get in the way.
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse- Welcome to the 90’s romance of the rodent world! For almost 90 years, she’s been the apple in ol’ Mickey’s eye. And he’s been lucky to have her, for she is constant as the northern star.
Han Solo and Princess Leia
It doesn’t get any more epic (or hot) than Princess Leia and Han Solo. While their relationship could have easily gotten lost among lightsabers and Jedi puppets, it was the achingly understated exchange between Han them that spoke volumes. She loved him. He knew. Period.
If this list doesn’t satisfy your thirst for love or a lack thereof then my friend this is a sign that you need to re-watch your favourite cartoon or movie or TV series so that you can fall in love with your couple all over again. Happy Valentine’s Day!
