It’s been 10 long years since “The Notebook” hit theaters and changed our lives — for the better — forever. The movie, based on Nicholas Sparks’ uber-romantic novel of the same name, follows the intertwined lives of Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling) as they meet, fall in love, separate, reunite, perform the greatest act of oral connectivity of all time, and fall in love again.

We can’t count the number of times we’ve sobbed while Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams made out in the rain or did the nasty on the kitchen floor of the house he built for her but there are plenty of other things we can count.

To celebrate a decade of romantic dominance for “The Notebook,” we present to you our ’Notebook’ By The Numbers infographic.
