Being such an inspiring city, Austin’s always brimming with romance, but in February things heat up more than just a little bit. We’re talking epic marriage proposals, romantic dinners, and amazing co-adventures, plus ridiculous lines at the “I Love You So Much” mural along SoCo.

Straight up, Austinites know how to woo their beloveds. And if the following 15 swoon inducing photos of cute University of Texas couples is any evidence, lots of Longhorns will be locking lips — and likely, hearts — this Valentine’s Day. If romance just gets you, we suggest finding some tissues before you dive in…

First of all, this is just adorable. Look at their perfect little heart! <3

Gotta love the classic UT Tower embrace.

Don’t these two look like peas in a pod? Well, three peas to be precise!
