This is how I'll always remember Legolas Orlando Bloom. This GIF. Glorious.

The Lord of the Rings was my life between the ages of 14 and 17. I read "The Very Secret Diaries" and even had the entire Fellowship of the Ring script memorized. I played the Lord of the Rings PS2 games with my best friend, Suzi, on the weekends — she was Aragorn, I was Legolas. We beat The Two Towers in one weekend. And I always, always opted for the sword-swingin', oh-so-pretty elf as my character. Every. Damn. Time.

If you can't tell, I was obsessed with Legolas and Orlando Bloom.

I followed his career; I pinned posters from J-14 up on my walls. He was the screensaver on my Windows 95 computer. He was everywhere.

Well, except follow his love life. So now, in my late 20s, I'm making up for lost time. Let's dig in, shall we?

But first, look at this. 

OK, we can move on now.

2 /14: 2001 + 2005: Sienna Miller

2/14 :2001 + 2005: Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller reportedly dated Orlando Bloom when she was 19. She eventually moved on to Jude Law, but rumor has it she returned to Bloom after she split from Law in 2005. All of this is according to Complex, since the internet isn't totally caught up on their relationship from way back in 2001. Pretty sure I was still playing around with Paint on my 50-pound desktop computer at that time.

3 /14: 2002: Kate Bosworth

3/14 :2002: Kate Bosworth

Oh, 2002. Can you believe that was more than a decade ago? Do you even remember Blue Crush? Do you want to go re-watch it right now? Where is Kate Bosworth now? Anyway, the two dated for three years and mutually broke up in 2005. Apparently it was due to their busy work schedules. While they did remain close and friendly, the breakup was pretty painful for Bosworth.

4 /14: 2003: Helena Christensen

4/14 :2003: Helena Christensen

Way back in 2003, supermodel Helena Christensen photographed Orlando Bloom, and they became instant best friends, according to Vogue. They hit it off so well that they even partied together and were rumored to briefly date.

5 /14: 2005: Vanessa Lachey

5/14 :2005: Vanessa Lachey

Before she became Vanessa Lachey, she was Vanessa Minnillo and called Orlando Bloom her boyfriend in 2005. According to Complex, TRL (you know, that music video countdown TV show on MTV?) brought Lachey and Bloom together. They were then spotted making out at a New York club.

6 /14: 2007: Naomie Harris

6/14 :2007: Naomie Harris

All the way back in 2007, pre-Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom had eyes for his Pirates of the Caribbean co-star Naomie Harris. They even went public with their relationship. 

7 /14: 2007: Miranda Kerr

7/14 :2007: Miranda Kerr

Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom started dating in late 2007, and things were going so well they got engaged in June 2010, married in July 2010 and had a kid in 2011. But it all came to a halt in 2013 when they announced their separation. It was rumored they split because Bloom cheated on her, but all seems well now. Not only do they go on double dates and live across the street from each other, but Kerr is happily engaged to Snapchat founder and CEO Evan Spiegel. 

8 /14: 2013: Liv Tyler

8/14 :2013: Liv Tyler

Of course there were rumors that Orlando Bloom was "secretly dating" Liv Tyler. Come on: They both played elves in The Lord of the Rings, and Aragorn (her love interest) was so not hot. (Sorry not sorry, Suzi.) But almost immediately after rumors started, Tyler put a stop to them, politely denying them. Too bad. They would have had pretty elf babies.

9 /14: 2014: Nina Dobrev

9/14 :2014: Nina Dobrev

In 2014, Orlando Bloom was spotted with The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev. And by spotted, I mean they were reportedly "making out for 20 minutes" and "getting flirty" at a Comic-Con Party. You know, the usual. Dobrev denied the dating rumors. She apparently had too many boyfriends.

Besides, elves can't date vampires anyway. Everyone knows that.

10 /14: 2014 + 2016: Selena Gomez

10/14 :2014 + 2016: Selena Gomez

First, Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom sparked rumors in 2014 when they were first photographed together, but they were just attending a WE Conference together. Two years later, they were spotted "hugging and kissing" in a Las Vegas club. Everyone freaked. Katy Perry even responded to it all. Needless to say, nothing came of it — just a lot of really bummed-out Jelena shippers crying internet tears on Twitter.

11 /14: 2014: Nora Arnezeder

11/14 :2014: Nora Arnezeder

Orlando Bloom then moved on to French actress Nora Arnezeder. They did topless activities together. But it eventually ended. Looked fun while it lasted, though!

12 /14: 2014: Condola Rashad

12/14 :2014: Condola Rashad

After his split from now-engaged Miranda Kerr (with whom he has a child), Orlando Bloom moved on to his Romeo and Juliet co-star and gorgeous woman Condola Rashad. What's sad is that there were rumors that Bloom actually cheated on Kerr with Rashad.

13 /14: Lindsay Lohan

13/14 :Lindsay Lohan

This is a good one. Remember when Lindsay Lohan revealed her "sex list"? You know, that list of about 36 celebs she claimed to have hooked up with? Orlando Bloom was on that. 

14/14 :2016: Katy Perry

And, of course, we have Katy Perry — the are-they-or-aren't-they relationship of 2016. They've attended events together, yachted together and even went nude paddleboarding together. Well, only on Orlando Bloom's part. Let's see how long this one lasts!
