It might be hard to picture Friends’s Phoebe and Chandler getting together romantically, but then again, maybe not. In season five, the series teased a potential romantic relationship between these two. Of course, this forced connection between Phoebe and Chandler was never real. It was only a way for the gang to get Chandler to come clean about his secret relationship with Monica.

Phoebe and Chandler never gave a relationship a real shot, but if they did, they would have been great together. Keep reading to find out the 10 reasons why Chandler and Phoebe would have made the perfect couple.

They’re Both Hilarious

Almost any Friends fan can tell you that Phoebe and Chandler are easily the funniest members of the gang. So many of the best quotes from the show come from these two thanks to their hysterical personalities and senses of humor. Phoebe’s kookiness is a classic part of her charm and Chandler’s sardonic sense of humor is essential to his character.

There’s never a dull moment with either of these two so it only makes sense that they get together. Both Chandler and Phoebe deserve to be with someone who understands their humor and can dish it right back at them.

They Understand Each Other

Not only do these two have similar personalities but they can also relate to one another on a deeper level. Both Chandler and Phoebe have gone through some hard times in their childhood and have strained relationships with their parents. Chandler’s parents divorced when he was nine years old and he has struggled to get along with his mom and dad ever since.

Phoebe’s childhood was no picnic either. She lost her mom when she was just 14 years old and surprisingly met her biological mother in season three. Phoebe also has a strained relationship with her father and twin sister.

Phoebe Gives Great Massages

In season five, fans find out that Monica is terrible at giving massages, so terrible that she causes Chandler physical pain. This caused some drama within Monica and Chandler’s relationship as Chandler didn’t want to hurt Monica’s feelings by telling her the truth about her awful massaging skills. Do you know who gives great massages? Phoebe.

If Chandler and Phoebe got together, there would never be any disagreements around this specific topic. It appears that Chandler is great at giving massages as well so this pairing would definitely be a match made in heaven.

They Balance Each Other Out

Even though Chandler and Phoebe have similar personality traits, they differ in plenty of ways as well. For instance, Chandler works a corporate job for the majority of the series while Phoebe hates corporate America.

Another difference between these two would be that Chandler is afraid of dogs. Although he eventually gets over this fear thanks to Phoebe’s persistence in keeping Clunkers around, a cute little dog that she’s pet-sitting in “The One Where Chandler Doesn’t Like Dogs”. Differences like these would definitely make Phoebe and Chandler a well-rounded couple.

They Would Have Good Chemistry

Even though fans never got to see Chandler and Phoebe get together, aside from a forced and awkward altercation in season five, we’re confident that these two would have the best chemistry. This pair doesn’t exactly have endless storylines together, but the few they do have show how comfortable they are with one another.

For instance, in “The One Where Everybody Finds Out”, Chandler says “Phoebe, it’s me, you can tell me anything.” That was a pretty adorable line and we can only imagine how much cuter these two would be if they actually got together.

They Deserve The Best

Both Chandler and Phoebe have been through their fair share of breakups, such as Phoebe with David and Chandler with Kathy. These relationships could have gone the distance but they ended in heartbreak and as fans, it was hard to watch.

Chandler and Phoebe are both such loyal and loving friends that it’s impossible to not root for their relationships to succeed. This is why they would make such a great match for each other. Together, they would finally have the relationship that they’ve always deserved.

They’re Best Friends

There’s nothing better than a best-friendship evolving into a romantic relationship. These types of relationships often go the distance since they started on a firm foundation. Chandler and Phoebe have been best friends for years and they know everything there is to know about each other.

Phoebe was even Chandler’s confidant when he first decided to propose to Monica in season six. It’s obvious that they’re extremely close and comfortable with one another so it’d definitely make sense for them to give a romantic relationship a shot.

The Chick And The Duck

If for no other reason, Phoebe and Chandler should be together because of the chick and the duck. It’s a well-known fact in the Friends fandom that Phoebe loves animals. Chandler became the proud owner of a chick and a duck when Joey came home with them in season three.

Phoebe was even with Chandler when Joey introduced him to the chick for the first time. Even though Phoebe points out that raising a chick is a lot of work, we can only imagine that Phoebe and Chandler would bond over their love for these two farm animals.

Phoebe Is Brutally Honest

One of Chandler’s major character flaws is that he has a hard time being completely honest and handling conflict. This is often seen throughout his various relationships and is usually the reason his relationships end badly. Luckily for Chandler, Phoebe has no problem being brutally honest about everything and anything so she would be perfect for him.

We can definitely see Phoebe ensuring the lines of communication stay open in their relationship. Hopefully, her honesty and ability to resolve any conflict would eventually rub off on Chandler.

They’re Both Selfless

Throughout the series, Phoebe and Chandler have proved just how selfless they are time and time again. Phoebe gave her brother the ultimate gift by being a surrogate mother for him and his wife. Chandler has also proved his altruistic character by continuously going out of his way to provide for Joey.

For instance, in season six, Chandler invented the game “Cups” to try to trick Joey into accepting money from him. It’s obvious that Phoebe and Chandler would do anything for their friends and they deserve someone who would do the same for them.
