Whether they're grabbing coffee or web-swinging through the streets of New York for the Spidey sequel, this on and off-screen duo is pretty much always looking seriously cute and in love. Emma and Andrew met while filming The Amazing Spiderman and have been dating ever since.

This relationship is definitely the cutest one to ever hit Instagram. The PLL star and her Suits boyfriend are always snapping sweet and artsy pics of each other, while making the rest of the world jealous of their super cool (and romantic) adventures: road trips, aerial gymnastics, and film festivals! So jel.

Naya Rivera and Big Sean

Not only did these two get engaged this year, but the talented singers inspire each other's music, too! Naya released her first solo single "Sorry" this year, featuring her now-fiance Big Sean. We wonder if these two will write songs for their wedding (possibly next year?).

Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo

Both Nick and Olivia are crazy busy and are constantly traveling for work, but they still make time for each other-and in the cutest of ways! Nick even flew all the way to Russia to watch Olivia pass on her Miss Universe crown-now that's commitment.
