TV romances can be a wonderful thing. They not only inspire us, but they also serve to give us hope that our own perfect person is somewhere out there, just waiting to be discovered.

Sometimes, the chemistry that the characters share for one another is so palpable, that it transcends the small screen. So have a look below and check out these TV couples with such great chemistry, people wanted them to date in real life.

Glenn and Maggie Rhee in 'The Walking Dead'

Glenn kissing Maggie in 'The Walking Dead'.

From the first moment that they laid eyes on one another, the chemistry between Maggie and Glenn was undeniable. Considering how their love came to such a violent end on TV, it would be nice to see them get a happy ending in real life.

What made Mickey and Ian's relationship so incredible to watch was the fact that it sprung out of nowhere. One minute, Ian is standing up to Mickey in order to get him to stop bullying his secret boyfriend. The next, they're making passionate love in the dugout at the community diamond.

Have mercy! Jesse and Becky just might be one of the most beloved TV couples in recent history. Plus, if they got married in real life, they could still have their first dance to "Forever."

Ben Wyatt and Leslie Knope in 'Parks And Recreation'

It's been said that opposites attract but similarities are what bind. You could spend an eternity searching for a more like-minded TV couple and never find one as endearing as Ben and Leslie.

Jessica Day and Nick Miller in 'New Girl'

Nick and Jess didn't always like one another. In fact, in the beginning, there was no one whom Nick found more annoying. But through their close proximity, this wonderful friendship blossomed into a wonderfully romantic partnership.

Phillip and Vivian Banks in 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air'

Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv's relationship was one built upon a foundation of mutual respect. These two were there for one another when they had nothing and built their empire from the ground up, together.

J.D. and Elliot Reid in 'Scrubs'

J.D. and Elliot had one of the best will they/won't they dynamics of any TV couple in the history of television. My only complaint about their relationship is that it took so long for them to finally figure it out.

Randall and Beth Pearson in 'This Is Us'

Beth and Randall in a department store in 'This Is Us'.

I don't say this lightly, but Randall and Beth may have had the best relationship out of any other couple on This Is Us. Beth was always supportive and understanding, even when Randall gave her plenty of reasons not to be.

Johnny Rose and Moira Rose in 'Schitt's Creek'

Schitt's Creek was far from the first time that Eugene Levy and Catharine O'Hara shared the screen together. Their chemistry, therefore, didn't happen by accident. It had already been well established through years of shared experiences.

David Rose and Patrick Brewer in 'Schitt's Creek'

I just want someone to sing to me the way that Patrick sang to David during the open-mic night at Rose Apothecary. I'd also settle for someone to lip-sync to me the way that David did for Patrick after the fact.

Monica Gellar and Chandler Bing in 'Friends'

Chandler and Monica kissing on their wedding day with Joey in the background, dressed as a WWI soldier.

There wasn't so much of a whisper of sexual chemistry between Monica and Chandler for at least the first three seasons of Friends. But once it happened, it hit with all the force of a Mack truck.

Mitchell Pritchett and Cam Tucker in 'Modern Family'

Sure, Mitchell and Cam bicker with one another — but what married couple doesn't? My only regret is that we didn't get to see more physical showings of their love on screen.

Sheldon Cooper and Amy Fowler in 'The Big Bang Theory'

Sheldon and Amy in 'The Big Bang Theory'.

When we first met Sheldon Cooper, he seemed destined to die alone — with only his action figures and comic books left to mourn him. Then, we met Amy, who helped to completely upend our world as well as his.

Claire and Phil Dunphy in 'Modern Family'

Claire and Phil on the couch in 'Modern Family'.

Yes, in many ways, Phil Dunphy is an idiot — but he's Claire's idiot. You can't tell me that your heart wouldn't melt if you happened to run into Clive Bixby and Juliana seated at the table next to you.

John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer in 'The Office'

Jim telling Pam that he's in love with her for the first time in 'The Office'.

There has never been a TV couple that's been more beloved than Jim and Pam — except for maybe Ross and Rachel. Their relationship model is the perfect example of how the best relationships often begin as friendships.

April Ludgate-Dwyer and Andy Dwyer in 'Parks And Recreation'

Andy and April talking to the camera in 'Parks and Rec'.

When we first meet Andy and April, it doesn't seem as if they have much in common at all. However, in no time audiences are made to see that the love and dedication they share for one another truly is one of a kind.

Jane Villanueva and Michael Cordero from 'Jane The Virgin'

Do you remember how Jane reacted when she thought that Michael was dead? It was positively heartbreaking to watch. You can't tell me that passion isn't based on real-life chemistry, at least in part.

Tony and Carmella Soprano in 'The Sopranos'

Carmella and Tony were far from perfect. They cheated, lied, and even stole from one another on multiple occasions. but as any married couple will tell you, just because a marriage isn't perfect doesn't mean that the love isn't there.

Jax Teller and Tara Knowles in 'Sons Of Anarchy'

Jax and Tara sitting on the grass in 'Sons Of Anarchy'.

Jax and Tara are the epitomai of star-crossed lovers. Their fates were never meant to align, but the love they shared was so powerful that they were both willing to die in order to fulfill it.

Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in 'Boy Meets World'

Come on! How many of us can say that they grew up to marry the first girl/boy they ever kissed? Cory and Topanga's relationship is the definition of "couples goals."

Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski in 'Saved By The Bell'

I used to love Kelly Kapowski, I always thought we'd end up together. But if it couldn't be me, I really hoped that it would've wound up being Zack aka Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

Marge and Homer Simpson in 'The Simpsons'

There are some who would call Homer and Marge's marriage toxic. But those of us who have been there since the very beginning understand that love like this simply doesn't exist in the real world — as sad as that is to say.

Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin from 'How I Met your Mother'

Marshall and Lily on their wedding day.

Marshall and Lily were the stereotypical "perfect couple." They picked one another up at the airport, they finished each other's sentences, and beyond all that — they were both absolutely head-over-heels obsessed with being in love.

Ross Gellar and Rachel Green from 'Friends'

Could it have been anyone else? I still stand firm that Rachel could've done better, but you can't argue with the mob. Deep down, we all want a love that's as true as Ross and Rachel's.
