Having a crush can be a vulnerable-making and completely nerve-wracking experience. You like this person but you don’t know if they like you back but you think they like you and you sit around and dream up scenarios whereby they do like you back or maybe they just make the first, extremely romantic move, and then WHEW. All of this is really just about fear of rejection, and though you totally need to be yourself, you’re less likely to be rejected if you play it cool. But playing it cool doesn’t have to mean waiting around for someone else to make the first move. You can be bold, but in our socially awkward world, sometimes it’s hard to know if you’re doing it right, especially if you have a history of embarrassing yourself in social situations (guilty). Here’s a guide to letting someone know you like them without worrying you’re going to freak them out.
The only thing I love more than a Meg Ryan movie is a Tom Hanks + Meg Ryan movie. Ryan is starring in (and directing) a film called Ithaca, an adaptation of the 1943 novel The Human Comedy.

Because I’ll do it. #MenksMovieMagic We love Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan because of their amazing chemistry. They make us believe that anything is possible—even things like successful Internet dating, or falling in love with a stranger on the top of the Empire State Building. If all goes well, Ithaca will mark the fourth time these two have stolen the show and won our hearts on the big screen. To celebrate their reunion, here are 13 more rom-com couples with truly amazing chemistry.
