Sam and Diane, Ross and Rachel, Pam and Jim. We all love rooting for sitcom couples that somehow can't get together even though they're attractive white people with amazing chemistry. It gets boring after a while. These 7 couples are way more interesting and make a lot more sense.

1. The Office - Kelly and Toby

I know. I know what you're thinking.

But honestly, Toby and Kelly would be a great couple! Kelly's over-the-top personality was only exacerbated by Ryan's. The calm, almost lethargic Toby would completely balance her out. And her spirit and excitement would bring Toby out of his pathetic shell. They spent all that time in the annex together, separated only by a thin cubicle wall. They even coordinated halloween costumes one year!

Then Gabe ruined it. But that could have been the start of a beautiful relationship built on a shared love of glow-in-the-dark dancing.

 

2. Friends - Joey and Phoebe

MOVE OVER ROSS AND RACHEL, this is the real "will they/won't they" couple you should care about. Let's be honest, Ross and Rachel were terrible for each other. Yeah, maybe they were in love and they had a kid together or whatever but that doesn't always mean the relationship will work. Know who are actually perfect for each other? You guessed it, it's Phoebe and Joey. They've got so much in common already (they both joined the group as roommates) and a beautiful chemistry that would translate so well into a relationship. They're sweet weirdos that would bring out the best in each other, unlike Ross and Rachel who only bring out the screaming in each other.

3. How I Met Your Mother - Robin and Marshall

Pretty much the only two people to NOT hook up on this show, Robin and Marshall actually make the most sense as a couple. I mean, Ted and Robin is just dumb and if you liked the finale you're dumb too. But Robin and Barney weren't good either. Their shared stubbornness and intensity just burned them out, as we saw in that aforementioned garbage finale. Marshall's steadiness would be a good balance for her. He's nice without being a "Nice Guy" like Ted and ambitious without being ruthless like Barney. He and Robin would motivate each other to be better. Lily doesn't do that for Marshall. She loves him TOO much to push him where he needs to be. Real Talk: the person you fall in love with in college is hardly ever the person you should share your life with.
