Okay, to be honest not all of these movies are going to make you cry... unless you're a sucker like me in which case... maybe you will. And I'm sorry. Especially for My Girl.
But some of these are just adorable rom-coms with happy endings that may have you shedding that one special single tear.
TL;DR Here are some new and classic love stories to get you through this Valentine's Day. Whether you're looking for an awesome rom-com or a real tearjerker, we've got you covered.
Of course, like I said, top of the list is My Girl because if there is a more heartwrenching story of love lost on Netflix I don't know what it is. (Only because Blue is the Warmest Color is not on Netflix Canada anymore.)
However, not all of the movies below are going to make you cry yourself to sleep in sadness and pain.
We've got some romantic comedies and some blockbuster classics, too.

And if you are in a relationship and spending the night at home watching Netflix with your S.O, then... cool, so I am, whatcha watchin'?!
