Office relationships may have a certain stigma, but in reality, over a third of workers find love at the office. There are definitely hugot feelings for those working on Valentine’s day, and diyahe feelings when your boyfriend overly surprises you, but let’s relive the romance between these famous fictional couples below who show us how it’s done.
1. Dr. Derek Shepherd & Dr. Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy
Ah, Dr. McDreamy. These two co-workers make us all feel giddy inside. They might represent all we would want to have in a relationship.
We want to have someone who accepts us for who we are.
When you can be vulnerable and tell that significant other how you really feel.
When you can just cuddle and laugh candidly all day long.
2. Jim Halpert & Pam Beesly from The Office
Jim and Pam are one of the cutest couples in television history. They are super cheesy but just cheesy enough to make you giggle, not cheesy gross.
They also have an awesome sense of humor.
And let’s not forget that wedding scene.
Pam: “My veil tore.”
And he cuts his tie in half. Isn’t that just gosh darnit super adorable. Feeeeeels.
3. Jerry Maguire & Dorothy Boyd from Jerry Maguire
The movie starts when Jerry (Tom Cruise) gets fired from his job, after releasing an article that talks about dishonesty in the industry he works for. He leaves the office after getting fired, and makes a speech about starting his own company. He eventually asks who wants to come with him, and no one responds. In the end, only Dorothy (Renee Zellweger) comes along.
In love, your significant other should support you no matter what.
Eventually they get into a relationship, but she breaks up with him because she doesn’t think he loves her. Think again, missy. This is one of the ultimate declarations of love of all time.
“You had me at hello.” *Faints*
4. Gracie Hart & Eric Matthews from Miss Congeniality
Miss Congeniality is about an FBI agent, Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock), who joins the Miss United States beauty pageant on an undercover mission. Eric Matthews is her colleague who initially never saw Gracie that way but after her ‘transformation,’ he starts falling for her.
She definitely plays coy and teases him, like we all do sometimes.
She’s an adorable one.
5. Miggy Montenegro and Laida Magtalas from A Very Special Love
Laida starts out as an editorial assistant at Miggy’s family business. Eventually, (I didn’t see this coming), they fall in love.
In relationships, everyone can get a little jealous.
Sometimes, we can also be medyo assuming.
But in the end, you can’t really hide your emotions.
6. Mike Ross & Rachel Zane from Suits
This pair makes every Suits fan swoon. Mike Ross is a lawyer with an eidetic memory who never attended law school. At Pearson Hardman, he meets Rachel, and there was an instant attraction. She was Mike’s paralegal, and she’d help him with his research during late nights.
He can’t help but tell her how beautiful she is.
In other words, alam na.
7. Julian Parker & Tere Madlansacay from English Only Please
Julian (Derek Ramsay) is a Filipino-American who wants to hire a translator, Tere Madlansacay (Jennylyn Mercado), to help translate a letter he wrote for the woman who broke his heart.
This may express all the bitter feelings single people might have on Valentine’s Day.
But in the end, don’t worry….. we will all have happy endings.
Happy Valentine’s (Hugot) Day everybody! Now go take your significant other on a not so typical date in Manila!
