Ahhhh, love. The land of a thousand feelings. The thing we all want even if we don’t always admit it. Even when we are scared of it…even when we run from it for fear of getting hurt, we want it. ¬†Because love feels amazing when it’s going well. It makes us feel ALIVE. But sometimes love hurts. Sometimes love can feel elusive, and sometimes love is just…complicated. OITNB knows that. Here are our favorite moments when the show proved it understood that human affliction called LOVE.

There’s that love that makes up for all the times your heart was broken. And if you haven’t found it yet, there’s always hope. You have to put yourself out there, and that can be scary. But after all, love is worth the risk.
