You can 'manufacture' your own real-life love stories. When you're swooning in that initial 'he's-so-hot-I-think-I'm-in-love" feeling, take a moment to enjoy and allow the time to let romance build as you let the lust carry you through to the deeper, more meaningful traits that turn to love. On the other hand, if the feeling fades, you'll have your answer there as well (hopefully before there's a ring on your finger!)

As for our TV lovebirds? Heck, we're all 'rooting' for the contestants. Who doesn't love a good love story?
