Back in the '90s, we learned a lot of life lessons from Boy Meets World , but nothing stood out quite so much as the heart-melting relationship between Cory and Topanga. They were soul mates in every sense of the term, and — even cuter — the pair adores each other off screen, too. In an interview with Ben Savage , he shared some sweet words about his costar Danielle Fishel. He also also gave us a little love advice, sounding very much like Cory when he said, "If you're in love with someone, or if you feel that connection with someone, you might as well go for it." Ben turns 34 this week, so to celebrate the actor's birthday, take a look at reasons why you'll always adore Cory and Topanga.
First of all, Cory Matthews is just the cutest.
The absolute cutest.
And totally humble about all of it.
Cory's also superweird.
And, well, so is Topanga.
In the beginning, they sometimes want to kill each other.
But then the sparks start flying.
Topanga takes things into her own hands.
And Cory has the world's most adorable reaction to a kiss.
Things are pretty up and down between them.
But then they're really, really up.
It's pretty much magical.
Cory and Topanga share denim-clad true love at its finest.
They give each other the sweetest looks.
And wear coordinating vests with white tees.
They know they share something special.
And they choose each other again and again.
Meanwhile, Cory still has his awesome friendship with Shawn.
And Shawn's totally OK being the third wheel to such a cool couple.
He embraces Topanga's weirdness, too.
She's Cory's "precious peach."
And he's Topanga's "babe."
They aren't afraid to say "forever."
They know they'll love each other always.
Cory would do anything for her.
And he's always by her side.
But they don't always act superserious.
They have their fair share of hilarious moments, too.
They let loose.
And bust a move.
When they look at each other, your heart swells.
When Topanga takes things into her own hands (again), it's just the BEST.
They say "I do."
And it's happily ever after.
4ever and ever and ever!
The best part? That was only the beginning!
And now we get to watch more of their love story play out on Girl Meets World !
