Most people fall into one of two camps when it comes to Valentine's Day: The believers—those who can't wait to wear pink, gorge on chocolate, and fake surprise when flowers are delivered to their office; and the cynics—those who prefer touting Hallmark conspiracy theories. But no matter which label you prefer, or whether you're in a committed relationship or single as a slice of Kraft processed cheese, you deserve a happy Valentine's Day. And good news! We here at Brides have an idea for how you'll find it: Spend the evening with a lover that responds to your every touch, lasts at least 20 minutes, and craves your attention so desperately that every hour or so you're asked, "Are you still watching?"
That's right! Spend a little quality time with some of the greatest loves of your life: streaming services Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. They're the perfect V-day companions to settle in for a night of optimal entertainment—provided your connection is good. (See what we did there?)
To that end, we've created the ultimate Valentine's Day binge-watching guide, complete with well over 24 hours worth of iconic rom-coms and V-day-themed TV episodes that will warm your heart, tickle your funny bone, jerk your tear ducts, or do some combination of all three. Plus, they're all available to stream right now with a valid subscription, and we've provided trailers when possible, so you can give everything a little taste test. (Eek, that Sixteen Candles one did not age well...)
