Arguably one of the most beloved and tear-inducing romantic films of all time, ​​​​​​The Notebook is naturally at the top of our list. In the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams star as two lovebirds who against all odds (including war and disapproving parents) find their way back to each other. This one is widely known to make even grown men cry. Hashtag if you're a bird, I'm a bird.

It's been 19 years, and we can still recite every line of Titanic. The film, which sees Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as star-crossed lovers aboard the doomed ocean liner, won countless awards and broke numerous records (it was the highest-grossing film of all time for over a decade). One thing is for sure with this movie: We'll never let go.

Pretty Woman is one of those classic feel-good love stories that we return to time and time again. After all, the movie turned Julia Roberts into America's Sweetheart (and a young and dashing Richard Gere ain't bad to look at either).

Dirty Dancing is another one of those classics we all know and love. We can't decide what's more fun to watch: Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's budding-yet-forbidden romance, or the fun dance numbers and '80s fashion. Let's call it a tie.

If you're like us, you've seen How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days no less than a few dozen times, thanks to frequent television broadcasts. Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson are hilarious together, and we will never listen to the song "You're So Vain" again without thinking of this movie. Catch it on Netflix now!

When Harry Met Sally is the rom-com to end all rom-coms. There's the magnetic chemistry between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, references to Casablanca, and one very iconic scene (ahem, the diner). If you've somehow missed this timeless film, we think you should make it a priority.

Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock (who received a Golden Globe Award nomination for her role in the film) were hilarious together and quite honestly adorable in this 2009 comedy. Audiences loved the pair so much so that rumors swirled for some time after the film came out that they might be dating in real life.
