Before the epic romance of the show can happen, characters always have that insignificant relationship that commonly goes nowhere.
A guest star usually shows up for a short arc and are never seen or heard from again after they break up with whoever they're dating.

It's these types of relationships that we usually forgot until a picture or rewatch jogs our memories.
We've created a list below of 19 insignificant relationships we barely remember.
Nathan and Peyton - One Tree Hill
We only saw them together for a couple of episodes and the two were never romantic again. But it was for the best because both Nathan and Peyton belonged with other people.
Chidi and "The Real Eleanor" - The Good Place
Remember Vicky? Otherwise known as "The Real Eleanor?" Even though Vicky was just with Chidi to manipulate him and cause problems, we still forget that they were ever an item.
Barry and Linda - The Flash
This was a real blast from the past. Long before Barry and Iris were married, Barry actually dated Iris' co-worker for a short time.
Jake and Sophia - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Jake and Amy have been together and in love for so long now that we actually forget that there was a time when they weren't. Sophia wasn't necessarily a bad love interest for Jake, but their relationship was short-lived and very insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
Archie and Miss Grundy - Riverdale
Maybe "purposely repressed" is a better way to put it. This relationship was illegal and wrong, and we don't even understand why Riverdale had to go there in the first place. Especially when all it did was bring the show down.
Ben and Penelope - One Day at a Time
They were cute for the two episodes that they lasted, but unfortunately, nothing else ever came of this relationship as Penelope realized she wasn't ready to be with anyone.
