If you thought Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' sweetest moment at the Met Gala was on the red carpet, you'd be mistaken. Inside, Humans of New York took a photo of the couple and got Reynolds to explain just why he's in love with Lively.

"She always responds with empathy," he started. "She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She'll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she's made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn't want to remember. She made me remember the good times."

Good luck topping that proclamation of love, men.
