9 Romantic and Anti-Romantic Netflix Titles to Add to Your Valentine's Day Watchlist

Love is in the air, and it smells like chocolate and roses!


Whether you are one half of a couple or a third wheel on Valentine's Day, it's a good day to binge-watch. In honor of making the season of love last throughout the year, Netflix has rounded up 9 titles to add to your watchlist, and they diversely cater to the hopeless romantic, the self-love advocate, and the justice warrior.


Before you snuggle up with your Valentine and a bowl of popcorn, keep in mind that the greatest love stories of all time aren't always sunshine. Sometimes, they get tested by storms, but the real ones stick around for the rainbow. That being said, we totally won't judge you if you use that bowl of popcorn to catch your tears too!


So, flex your cuddle muscles and steel your heart, because these romantic (and anti-romantic) Netflix shows will steal your heart.


For the Brave Hearts

The road to love, freedom, and happiness are all battlefields—it takes courage to both pick up your weapon and know when to put it down.

For the Journey of Love from Within
