When you’re looking for love, it’s hard to find that one special person. Most times if someone asked you to describe the love of your life before you met them, you’d have no idea what to say.

But it’s those rare moments we live for when something clicks with your partner and all you can think is “I can’t imagine being without this person.” Sometimes it’s something silly that does it or something you weren’t expecting.

Here are 26 couples that just get it.

Most people know that the first few hours after surgery are usually a little…well…foggy. After all, waking up from anaesthesia and taking pain pills for a few days thereafter is enough to make anyone loopy.

And that’s why these two brothers decided to play a prank on their sister who had just gotten her wisdom teeth removed. Listen to what they talked her into believing on the car ride home.

Ah, siblings. They’re as evil as they are hilarious. As far as pranks go, this one is pretty impressive. They even talked Mom into playing along! Better luck next time, Mill Continue reading She Was On Medication After Oral Surgery, So Her Brothers Decided To Prank Her

Oh, babies! They’re known for their round heads covered in a light dusting of peach fuzz, which can make them look like little adorable baby seals (at best) or grumpy old men (at worst). The amount of hair a baby has on birth will vary due to a number of factors, such as genetics and hormone levels, but most kids begin life with a scant amount that fills in as they grow. Other kids are little cueballs, and some, like this baby, are born with full, luxurious heads of hair that would make any shampoo commercial model jealous.
