We're used to seeing love stories in movies, in which two people typically meet, fall in love, experience some extenuating circumstances that make them fall apart, and then come to a resolution that helps them live happily ever after.

Ahead, we've rounded up a few moments from 2017 that made us believe in love again. If you could use a little more faith in people and the world at large, take a look at some of our favourite stories.
