Will you be the Kevin Arnold to my Winnie Cooper?

During the summer lull in the land of television, I've been watching an old favorite, The Wonder Years, every night at 10 p.m. on ion. As a true old soul at heart, I am a sucker for any show with a nostalgic vibe.... who cares if I wasn't even alive in the 60s? I think we can all relate despite what decade we grew up during.

I was only 8 years old when The Wonder Years premiered, and from the very beginning I had a HUGE crush on the adorable Kevin Arnold (played by Fred Savage). I especially loved the scenes with him and Winnie Cooper, since no matter what the era, I think we all can relate to their young love. Silly fights, jealousy, the anticipation of a first kiss, the nervousness of attending a make-out party. We've all been there in some way or another. Through everything, Kevin and Winnie always came back to each other and just "got" each other.

I always wanted my very own Kevin Arnold to my Winnie Cooper.

Is there a couple (fictional or not) that you always daydreamed you'd be like someday?
