So you met this person at a party and you charmed their socks off. Someone asks the other out and voila! You have yourself a date. Now experts say that planning a date is just as hard as getting one. You’re a cinephile, so you could go for the comfortable “Movie Night” Date and show off some of your movie mojo (like Jesse gushing about ‘The Breakfast Club’ in ‘Pitch Perfect’), but c’mon, you’re better than that! What you can do instead is to get inspired from the most romantic dates in cinema. And that is why I present to you the list of top date night movies ever. You can watch some of these really best good date night movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. Thank us later for these date night ideas.
10. The Notebook
Aah. The Notebook. The Holy Grail of rom-coms. Every girl’s romantic fantasy (because of its unrealistically dreamy lead) and every guy’s nightmare (also because of its unrealistically dreamy lead!) The film is chuck-full of potential iconic romantic fantasies, but the absolute capper is the lead duo’s soiree in a canoe in the middle of a gorgeous lake full of white ducks. This date has all the ingredients for romantic perfection – slow, intimate conversation, a hint of nostalgia, the breathtaking setting and some rain (which doesn’t dampen the spirits of our pair one bit). And the fact that the date ends with one of the most memorable kisses on celluloid adds a nice cherry on top.

9. Crazy, Stupid Love
Of course Ryan Gosling is gonna feature more than once in a list about romantic dates! But this date strays far from the our classic previous entry (or any normal date for that matter). Hannah (Emma Stone) initially rejects womaniser Jacob (Gosling) when he makes a pass at her at a bar, but later, in a more vulnerable and “in the mood for a fling” stage, she accompanies him to his place. But instead of having a meaningless one-night stand, they end up deconstructing their own date and “moves” to seduce the other, leading up to hilarious conversation and an intimate connection. A handy tip before getting inspired from this date: Learn to do the ‘Dirty Dancing’ lift.
