In a fictional world, we find the essence of our real life: the reel of a film takes us through different aspects of life and allows us to understand the complexity and sophistication of life. Movies, especially romantic ones, are an ideal target for romantic ideas and dating, because a lot of research, creative process, collaboration and brainstorming are necessary in order to make a good film, especially if the film meets the requirements of a ‘classic.’ Let’s take a look at some of the best tips given by the best movies.
Best Dating Advices From Movies
1. Sex and the City
Advice: “But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
When you love yourself, you admire your true self and spend some time with yourself. You admire your strong sides, work on the weaker ones and accept the limitations that you cannot change.
The movie was produced in 2008, directed by Michael Patrick King & Adopted from the HBO comedy series, Sex and the City.
2. What’s Your Number?
Advice: The future will give you the right person, the past will not – your ex is an ex for a reason.
Don’t give your exes a second chance: the first one was enough. If a relationship couldn’t last any longer and finally ended, it means that something was wrong, either with the man, or with the relationship itself. Find the right person in the future, not from a list of your past mistakes.
The movie was produced in 2011, directed by Mark Mylod & based on the book, 20 Times a Lady by Karyn Bosnak.
3. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Advice: “Sure I loved her. But that didn’t mean I wanted to touch her.”
Sex is not essential or the only reason to love someone. Sex may be a part of love life, but loving someone just for sex is not love, it is something else.
The movie was produced in 1961, directed by Blake Edwards, and adapted from Truman Capote’s masterpiece, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Advice: “Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.”
Don’t count the length of life in days and years, but in the moments that surprised you, that made you laugh, cry and smile, and that you truly enjoyed.
The movie was produced in 2005, directed by Andy Tennant, and starred Will Smith and Eva Mendes
5. The Notebook
Advice: “I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life… But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
The movie was produced in 2004, directed by Nick Cassavetes and adapted from the 1996 book, The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks.
6. Love Actually
Advice: “True love lasts a lifetime.”
This is the nature of love: it has no expiration date, and it lasts a lifetime if it it’s real. It is a phenomenon that continues without interruption or separation when lovers are truly loyal to each other without expectation of anything in return.
The movie was produced in 2003, directed by Richard Curtis and starred Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman

Advice: “I’d never given much thought to how I would die, but dying in the place of someone I love seems like a good way to go.”
Maybe the horrible idea of dying can be softened slightly if you die for the person you love.
The movie was produced in 2008, directed by Catherine Hardwicke and based on the novel Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
8. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Advice: “We accept the love we think we deserve.”
The person we have accepted as the ‘better half’ of ourselves is often the reflection of what we think are our best qualities.
The movie was produced in 2012, directed by Stephen Chobsky and based on the novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
9. The Lucky One
Advice: “Sometimes finding the light means you must pass through the deepest darkness. At least, that’s how it was for me.”
At the end of the tunnel, there is light; the light is the reward for the arduous journey we undertake to find true love.
The movie was produced in 2012, directed by Scott Hicks and based on the novel The Lucky One.
Advice: “The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all.”
When we dive into the depths of life, we come out with the pearls of wisdom that guide us on our path. But if we live on the surface or avoid deep, meaningful relationships, our life becomes superficial and hollow. Sadness is the by-product of empty life.
The movie was produced in 2010, directed by Lasse Hallström and based on the novel Dear John by Nicholas Sparks.
11. The Fault in Our Stars
Advice: “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
The movie was produced in 2014, directed by Josh Boone, and based on the novel The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
12. If I Stay
Advice: “That’s how we manage to survive the lost. Because love, it never dies, it never goes away; it never fades, so long as you hang on to it.”
The movie was produced in 2014, directed by R. J. Cutler, and based on the novel If I Stay by Gayle Forman
13. The Vow
Advice: “I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness, to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed, and to share the silence when they are not, to agree to disagree about red velvet cake, to live within the warmth of your heart, and always call it home.”
The movie was produced in 2012, directed by Michael Sucsy, and starred Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams
14. Good Will Hunting
Advice: “You’re not perfect, sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you’ve met, she’s not perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other.”
The movie was produced in 1997, directed by Gus Van Sant, and starred Robin Williams, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
15. Friends with Benefits
Advice: “It’s not who you want to spend Friday night with. It’s who you want to spend all day Saturday with.”
The movie was produced in 2011, directed by Will Gluck, and starred Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.
