I’m a hopeless romantic and I’m attracted to the word “Love” and “Romance”. That’s why watching romantic movies, especially romantic comedy love story, has been and is my current past time. I’ve watched a lot of romantic movies. While I find some silly and corny, some actually struck to my heart and stayed there. Upon searching for more movies I may have never seen before, I stumbled to different list of romantic movies of all time. Some is agreeable for me, while some are simply a list, just a list.
So I told to myself, why not make my own list of romantic movies? So here I am listing down the movies I’ve watched before which I considered romantic. So here it goes….
Let’s start with the 10th most romantic love story…
10. The Last Song (2010)
Miley Cyrus plays a rebel sent to spend the summer with her father. She falls in love with a boy on her father’s ranch. Miley’s character’s relationship with her father adds an extra element of interest to an otherwise simple teen coming of age story. This movie is the epitome of summer romance movies
9. 50 First Dates (2004)

8. Dirty Dancing (1987)
This classic movie combines sexy dancing and romance. The main girl is at a summer camp on holiday when she falls in love with her dance instructor. The naughty dynamic makes this movie even more intriguing. The main actress in this movie is smoking hot, which makes the movie even more enjoyable. This romantic movie starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.
7. When Harry Met Sally (1989)
This movie starred Bill Crystal, playing the role of Harry, and Meg Ryan, playing the role of Sally. This is quite sweet, romantic yet comic and I really enjoyed watching it. This is where I myself ask if it’s really possible for a man and woman to be merely friends.
6. Ghost (1990)
Patrick Swayze plays a ghost trying to reach his love through a medium played by Whoopi Goldberg. The talents of Whoopi Goldberg and the good looks of Patrick Swayze make this movie memorable.

He spends the rest of the movie trying to convince his girlfriend he is still there and that he still loves her.
5. The Vow (2012)

2. The Notebook (2004)

After seeing his love interest at the fair, Noah climbs to the top of a ferris wheel and threatens suicide if the girl doesn’t agree to go on a date with him. His dedication and charm eventually win her over. Allie’s family leaves town, and Noah writes Allie for a year. The events that follow are strange and make a true and tragic love story.
I actually thought twice if “The Notebook” should be the first in my list but I think being the second is just fine. One line I really can’t forget from this movie is this one:
I love you. I am who I am because of you.
You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had,
and no matter what happens to us in the future,
every day we are together is the greatest day of my life.
I will always be yours.
– The Notebook
And now, the first spot goes to…. *drum roll*
1. Titanic (1997)
A tragic love story that happens aboard a sinking ship, this story details the love of two young people. They fall in love quickly, when fledging artist Jack Dawson draws a picture of Rose, a rich passenger. The story actually begins when treasure seekers look for a special necklace aboard the sunken ship, the Titanic. Instead of finding the necklace, the divers find a picture of a woman who brings forth the now old Rose. She tells her story of her time aboard the Titanic as one of the only survivors of when the giant vessel hit an iceberg in the middle of the sea. The love story is woven in amidst the adventure of the sinking ship. The desperation of their situation makes the couple’s love story one of the best.
