Romance is in the Air - I

Thank God its Friday. The week that has been strictly hectic and killing with work is coming to an end. Time to relax, lay down, get a beauty treatment, a spa, do some shopping, hang out with friends and meet up with the guy.
But running out of places to go out with the guy?
Try watching some romantic comedies, down on the couch, resting head on his shoulder, holding his hand, laughing out loud on comedy sequences and getting naughty on those intimate scenes.

Here is a list of some evergreen romantic comedies that would be great fun to watch with your guy. Okay, even if you watch them alone, they are as much fun.

Love Actually:
Christmas time in England, and unusual things going on round. Some people are falling in love, then breaking up or some people just desperately lonely and still looking for that someone special. This is a story about 8 people who follow their hearts and show love or anger. If you look carefully around 'Love Actually' is all around you...

A lot like Love:
On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, Oliver and Emily make a connection, only to decide that they are poorly suited to be together. Over the next seven years, however, they are reunited time and time again, they go from being acquaintances to close friends to ... lovers?
Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Amanda Peet

Jonathan Tragger meets Sara Thomas by chance in the Christmas eve, in Bloomingdale's, both trying to buy the unique pair of black gloves available for sale. They decide to go to the cafeteria Serendipity and Jonathan asks for her name and phone. Sara decides to write it in a book, and his on a five dollars bill. She gives the bill to a newspaperman and she says that she would sell the book in a New York used books store. She states that if destiny wants them two together, Jonathan will get that book back. Or she will receive that bill again. From this day on, Jonathan will 'chase' Sara's book trying to reach his lost love
Cast: John Cussak, Kate Blenkinsale

Just like heaven:
Elizabeth Masterson is a doctor with a life of work, devoid of joy. But when an accident renders her into a spirit, Elizabeth may be forced to live something she has avoided: downtime. However, with her no longer occupying her apartment, it's been given to David Abbott, a good guy but a lonely landscape artist who has caught the ire of Elizabeth. She haunts him as a bitter spirit. She's not willing to give up her place to David, and he's not going to back down from his new home. But as these two continually fight, they might just be attracted to each other
Cast: Rees Witherspoon, Mark Ruffalo

50 first dates:
Henry Roth is a veterinarian living in Hawaii who enjoys the company of vacationing women. He leaves the playboy life behind after he falls for Lucy, who suffers from short-term memory loss. Since she can never remember meeting him, Henry has to romance Lucy every single day and hope that she falls for him.

Cast: Drew Berrymore, Adam Sandler

Dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge:
Raj is a rich, carefree, happy-go-lucky second generation NRI. Simran is the daughter of Chaudhary Baldev Singh, who in spite of being an NRI is very strict about adherence to Indian values. The two meet on a month long Eurotrip, and what began as pranks and fun and games, ends in love. But by the time they realize it, it is already too late, as Simran has left for India to be married to her childhood fiancé. Raj leaves for India with a mission at his hands, to claim his lady love under the noses of her whole family. Thus begins a saga.
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Kajol

Jab we met:
