A best friend is someone you could count on, a person(s) that is there for you and that matters so much to you. Now friendships don't always have to be explored in the romantic direction, but sometimes it is laying the foundation for something more.
This is especially important when you have two friends that can't keep their eyes off one another and that really don't know how to keep it platonic.
And then you have the couples that are willfully blind to the fact that their perfect match could have been right next to them all along.
Below is a slideshow of couples that need to consider taking things to the next level because they will only be happier for it.
Bellamy and Clarke - The 100
Where does one start with Bellamy and Clarke? More like how does one even end talking about these two. Bellamy and Clarke have a relationship that grows with every new season of The 100. Going from enemies to friends to partners, there is no one else these two trust like they do one another. They just work, which is why they even have a saying about being the head and the heart, essentially reminding us all how they fit together like puzzle pieces.
But then there is that little continuous and not at all subtle subtext with the way they look for one another when facing tough choices, the way they keep touching each other, and this general unspoken thing that radiates between the two of them. Bellamy and Clarke are the true definition of a friendship that is one hug away from being so much more, and it is exactly what the show has been leading up to all this time.
Rosa and Gina - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
These two are killing it season after season and while I am rooting for Rosa and Alycia, there is that friendship factor with Gina that I can't deny. They would be so badass together, something we shouldn't miss out on with a show as perfect as Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Amy and Jonah - Superstore
You would think having sex and that being broadcast globally would mean an automatic romantic confirmation but who knows with these two. Jonah and Amy are in a weird space where they finally realized they are perfect for each other, but they also have to deal with that giant pregnancy bombshell.
It is safe to say though that the only direction for them to go now is forward.
Kara and Lena - Supergirl
Anyone with eyes can see that Kara and Lena have a friendship that always lingers a little too long in the romance department. If explored, this friendship could turn into something special and isn't that what they both deserve?
Ryn and Ben and Maddie - Siren
With Ryn appearing in Bristol Cove, Ben and Maddie both became kind of protective over her. This created a great friendship between the three, but no one can deny the constant sparks everyone in that group is avoiding. Trying to break it down into a duo just doesn't add up the way that it would if they all just got together already.
Raven and Emori - The 100
If the six year time jump taught us anything, it is that Raven and Emori are killing it as this new team on The 100. Raven taught Emori a lot of what she knew and in turn they became best friends.
Obviously Raven has this growing thing with not Zeke and Emori is still caught up in her relationship with Murphy, but they could always just run away together instead.
It is about time Raven's chemistry with any lady that crosses her path got explored, and Emori is the perfect choice after all that they have been through together.
