19 Seemingly Cute Couples that Went Downhill

at .

One of the worst things a television watcher can experience is witnessing a ship they once loved getting destroyed by its show.

Even the most fabulous and satisfying relationships can go from the best part of a series to nothing more than an annoyance.

Whether it's the characters, overused tropes, or unnecessary drama, it's all too easy for an excellent romance to fall apart.

We've created a slideshow below of 19 seemingly cute couples that are sadly no longer shipping material. 

1. Penny and Kady - The Magicians

Penny and Kady - The Magicians
These two were good together, and we enjoyed their interactions throughout the series. But there was just too much drama that ended up infiltrating their relationship for us to continue shipping them like we wanted to.

2. Betty and Jughead - Riverdale

Betty and Jughead - Riverdale
Bughead was undeniably OTP material when Riverdale first aired. But after the first million makeout and sex scenes, it started getting repetitive. We're over it. Thank u, next.

3. Joey and Dawson - Dawson's Creek

Joey and Dawson - Dawson's Creek
These two were honestly better off as just friends. While they had romantic potential in the beginning, it just fizzled out throughout the series.

4. Hope and Landon - Legacies

Hope and Landon - Legacies
There's no arguing that Hope and Landon have a connection, but to be honest we're already bored. If we're starting to tire of them this early in it's pretty worrisome where they'll be in a season or two.

5. Brianna and Roger - Outlander

Brianna and Roger - Outlander
Brianna and Roger are another couple that appeared adorable at first but is really the complete opposite. Their entire relationship somehow feels wrong and rushed, and it's reached a point where it's unhealthy for both parties.

6. Emma and Ethan - The Lying Game

Emma and Ethan - The Lying Game
It was impossible not to ship them in the beginning. But cheating on someone with their twin sister (with each of them) is just not okay Ethan. Emma and Thayer were the real OTP of the show.

7. Nate and Amaya - DC's Legends of Tomorrow

Nate and Amaya - DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Watching Nate and Amaya grow closer and Amaya fall for him was all kinds of adorable. But things got really complicated really quickly, and it just felt like they were better off as friends.

8. Oliver and Felicity - Arrow

Oliver and Felicity - Arrow
This may be an unpopular opinion, but we're tired of Olicity. The first three seasons were great, but then Arrow quickly went from a superhero show to an Oliver and Felicity soap opera. Not to mention that the more the show went on, the less we liked Felicity, which is a shame because she started off the show as a hilarious, kickass character.

9. Alex and Piper - Orange is the New Black

Alex and Piper - Orange is the New Black
They were cute until they weren't. There reaches a point where a couple does so many horrible things to each other the relationship just needs to stop. Alex and Piper reached that point seasons ago.

10. Mateo and Jeff - Superstore

Mateo and Jeff - Superstore
It was cute when they had to keep their relationship a secret since Mateo worked under Jeff, but Jeff turned out to be kind of a jerk. Even though their first breakup was due more to bad circumstances than bad blood, we were happy to see Mateo realize he deserved better by calling it quits for real the second time around.

11. Serena and Dan - Gossip Girl

Serena and Dan - Gossip Girl
What started as an adorable, heartwarming romance, quickly became a relationship built on lies and manipulation. The fact that Dan was Gossip Girl (which makes no sense) and that Serena videotaped herself seducing him while he was dating her best friend proves that these two are a toxic mess together.

12. Lucas and Peyton - One Tree Hill

Lucas and Peyton - One Tree Hill
It was hard not to ship them at first, but as their relationship progressed they ended up fighting, literally, all the time. Plus the way they treated Brooke may it hard for us to root for their happiness.

13. Ross and Rachel - Friends

Ross and Rachel - Friends
They had some adorable moments when the show first kicked off. But the longer the series went on, the more annoying Ross and their relationship became.

14. Belle and Rumplestiltskin - Once Upon a Time

Belle and Rumplestiltskin - Once Upon a Time
When we first witnessed their story in flashbacks, it was your classic "Beauty and the Beast" fairytale. But as it turns out, the beast didn't turn back into a man and Rumplestiltskin spent the entire series hurting Belle and her friends, despite claiming to love her.

15. Joe and Beck - YOU

Joe and Beck - YOU
The better way to phrase this is to say they appeared cute to everyone on the show. The audience was able to witness everything, but Beck had no clue what was going on until Joe had her trapped in a glass cage.

16. Ragnar and Lagertha - Vikings

Ragnar and Lagertha - Vikings
At the beginning of the series, these two were absolute couple goals. But as the show went on their relationship became less and less appealing. By the time Ragnar died, the show was still implying a connection between them, but we were so over the relationship.

17. Spencer and Toby - Pretty Little Liars

Spencer and Toby - Pretty Little Liars
The buildup was nice, and for a while, we were entirely on board. But then Toby just turned into a jerk, and all the chemistry between them evaporated.

18. Meredith and Derek - Grey's Anatomy

Meredith and Derek - Grey's Anatomy
There's no denying they were perfect for each other at the beginning. But after years and years of off again, on again, their relationship just got boring. We still hold somewhat of a torch for them, but that's probably only due to Derek's death and the fact that they physically can't be together anymore.

19. Kyle and Mandy - Last Man Standing

Kyle and Mandy - Last Man Standing
Kyle and Mandy had all the chemistry in the world, at least until Mandy got recast. Kyle doesn't have the same spark he had with the original Mandy, and it made us dislike the entire relationship.
