Netflix has been dipping its toes into the romantic genre with its original movies and most of them went on to become some of the best romantic movies on Netflix.

3. To All The Boys I Have Loved
Netflix’s latest original flick is being addressed as the best teenage rom-com of the decade. The story is about Lara Jean Covey, a junior in high school, who has a habit of writing love letters to her crushes but never actually send them. This is her strategy to get the feeling out of her chest and also move on. After those love letters are anonymously sent, she has to do the damage control by getting involved in a fake relationship. For those who are bored of the usual rom-com and looking for something new and different in the same genre, this movie is a must watch.
This is a movie about one girl falling in love too quickly with a famous DJ and then along with her two best friends go to Ibiza to find him. This is not like other traditional love stories but a conventional one. With a trio of frenzied ladies, being impulsive and out of control, this movie will hit your funny bone!
5. Nappily Ever After
This movie is based on one of the best-selling novels, Nappily Ever After. The movie is a story about a woman named, Violet Jones, which is played by Sanaa Lathan. She is a successful woman who has it all- a great job, handsome boyfriend and great hair- until everything falls apart. It is a story about understanding and finding what true happiness is. This Netflix Original is a romantic movie where one woman discovers what is most important to her.
6. Alex Strangelove
Alex Strangelove is a story of a boy, Alex Truelove, who is ready to lose his virginity with his girlfriend but things get complicated when he meets a charming gay kid.

7. Set It Up
