Whether you prefer black-and-white classics or ones made in the ‘90s or 2000s (a.k.a. the "golden era" of rom-coms), we all have a favorite. This is what your favorite rom-com says about you.

When Harry Met Sally

We hate to be the one to break it to you, but there’s a 99.99% chance that you’re in love with one of your guy friends or have been in the past. Because of this, your favorite romance trope is friends to lovers, and you believe that friendship and respect are the foundation of any healthy relationship.

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days 

You’re a hopeless romantic and long for a rom-com type of love in real life but are also passionate about your job (just like Andie Anderson) and want to succeed in everything you do. Because of this, you know your worth and refuse to settle for anything less.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s 

Holly Golightly is one of the most stylish characters in the history of movies, undoubtedly making you a fashionista as well. You love any movie with Audrey Hepburn and prefer classic movies to modern movies, making you a bit of an old soul. Some may see you as naive, but you think it’s a gift to see the good in everyone.

You’ve Got Mail

Arguably the perfect rom-com, You’ve Got Mail has all of the tropes that you love. You may not own a little bookshop on the corner (a girl can dream, right?), but you’re a bookworm to your core and love to read any type of love story, from rom-coms to fantasy romance.

13 Going On 30 

You’re a firm believer that the key to happiness is to remain young at heart. You’re responsible when it comes to your job, family, and managing your finances, but you’re the first to let your hair down or goof around at a party and are always on the dance floor at weddings.

Bringing Up Baby 

As a fan of one of the OG rom-coms, you’re naturally mature – but you still love to laugh more than anyone you know. You don’t take yourself too seriously and view life and love as an adventure, leading to lasting and fulfilling friendships and romantic relationships in your life.

Notting Hill 

You’re just a girl who wants to fall in love with a British guy. Your love for all things British started with your love of Harry Potter as a kid, Jane Austen as a teenager, and period dramas as an adult. You crave the type of romance you’ve read in books and seen in movies and truly believe you could bump into your soulmate in a quaint bookstore.

Sweet Home Alabama 

In the fast-paced world we live in, you yearn for something simple and wholesome. A homebody to your core, you prefer the country to the city or the suburbs any day of the week and believe that a small town is the best place to live due to its sense of community,

Pretty Woman 

Everyone loves a good underdog story, but you enjoy them more than most. You’re a hard worker and always see the best in others. Should someone even try to underestimate you? Big mistake, huge!

Anyone But You 

You may appear uptight to others, but anyone who knows you well knows that you’re not only a good time, but a fiercely loyal friend. Your favorite rom-com trope is enemies to lovers, but that hasn’t blurred your expectations in a relationship because you’re on the lookout for a kind, hardworking, and masculine man.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Like Lara Jean, you’re a romantic who wishes that love letters were still a thing. You prefer to unwind alone and love to daydream about what love could be and read classic romance novels, but you know better than to let it get in the way of finding love in real life. 


You love all romance tropes, but the good girl-bad boy trope has a special place in your heart. You may have a thing for bad boys, but what you really desire is a strong and masculine man – you just have to find one who exhibits these traits and treats you well.

Legally Blonde 

You’re the ultimate girls’ girl and love to empower your girlfriends to be their best selves. You’re hardworking and like being underestimated (Harvard Law? What, like it’s hard?) because you love to prove others wrong. You always fight for what you believe in, even if it’s not a popular opinion.


Very few things bring you as much joy as helping others, and you likely work in a job that allows you to do so. While you crave a beautiful love story, your stubbornness can hold you back, but being as kind to yourself as you are to others will help all your dreams come true. 

The Princess Diaries

Despite being a literal princess, you relate to Mia Thermopolis on a personal level because you were also a late bloomer. You believe in true love and a fairytale romance, but you’re a firm believer that the foundation of a healthy relationship is loving a person for who they are on the inside.

27 Dresses

There’s a good chance that you haven’t met your person yet and haven’t been very lucky in love, but you’re still a firm believer in romance. You’re always there for your friends, so much so that you think your life inspired the phrase “always the bridesmaid, never the bride.” Be patient, your future husband is out there!

Closing Thoughts

Whether you prefer classics like Bringing Up Baby or consider How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days to be one of the greatest movies ever made, your favorite rom-com says a lot about you and your favorite romance tropes.
