As a new year begins, we have firmly resolved that this will be the year we stop sitting at home alone on a daily basis, watching reruns of Gossip Girl and falling asleep with Cheetos dust on our faces. This will be the year we find love. This will be the year someone looks at us the way we look at that jumbo pack of local Cheetos. And with that in mind, we decided to harness a little inspiration from some of the cutest couples around the city. Here are 12 of the city's cutest couples, in no particular order of cuteness, as captured by CairoZoom - and by means of our stalking skills on a wonderful little app called Instagram, just hoping that some of their love would rub off on us.
Tameem Younis & Nada Adel
When your wife designs lingerie, you know you married right. But also her husband is a hilarious viral internet sensation. We just want to be IN their relationship.
Malak El Ezzawy & Hashem Sabry
She's a powerhouse designer, and, well, so is he; the couple co-founded slick menswear brand Hoxton House earlier this year. You know how when you ask your husband/boyfriend/whatever if they prefer the black dress or the blue dress and they say the red because they really don't give a damn about your fashion dilemmas and weren't even listening to you and then you're passive aggressive with them for the rest of the week because they weren't paying attention to you and your really important question and before you know it you're divorced? We bet he never does that.
Hiba El Awadi & Ahmed Elmohamady
The socialite and the soccer player - if that's not the perfect couple we don't really know who is.
Lara Riad & Omar Gawdat
There's a certain degree of envy reserved for couples like the absurdly good-looking model-and-DJ duo that is Riad and Gawdat. We suppose the genetically blessed just gravitate towards each other. When this photo was taken, we were sitting at home counting our stretch marks and eating pizza.
When asked why countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan weren't also banned, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told NBC News' Chuck Todd that the administration may need to add other countries. more

Wedding bells rang as Brazilian Victoria’s Secret model Ana Beatriz Barros tied the knot with Egyptian-Greek billionaire Karim El Chiati last weekend on the Greek island of Mykonos. We’re so not jealous. more
