9 'Friends' GIFs For All Of Your Dating Woes, From Bad Kissers To Being "On A Break"

Let's face it: dating isn't easy. Luckily, for those avid fans of the '90s sitcom, Friends, we have a plethora of episodes to pair with our consolatory glasses of pinot noir after returning from even the most abominable of romantic encounters. Although the sextet spent 10 seasons catalyzing laughs, the series also showcased some of the most dismal of dating woes that we could all relate to. Ross and Rachel initially helmed the series as the most swoon-worthy coupling, but the pair also faced the vexing trials of being an on-again, off-again couple with the same group of friends. And don't even get me started on the whole "we were on a break" argument — that's the freaking worst! The show also spun tales of common problems many 20 and 30-something singles face, from pretending to be "fine" when your ex moves on to somebody else, to food-sharers, to marriage countdowns, and everything in between.

Regardless of the dating trials you have experienced, there is nary a situation that Friends didn't cover. Thanks to the beauty of the internet, there are also a slew of Friends GIFs that speak to all of our romantic troubles. In celebration of Friends and that oft nightmarish world known as "dating," lets take a look at nine glorious GIFs to remind us that — no matter how rough romance gets — there are still plenty of people who will always "be there for you." Enjoy!

When You're In A Real-Life Ross & Rachel Situation

Watching Ross and Rachel's on-again, off-again romance is great binge-watching fodder. In real life, however, breaking up and getting back together, followed by more breaking up and getting back together is downright exhausting.
