That’s right. I said it. More

Slowly but surely, Rachel McAdams has become the face of our favorite romantic movies. When Rachel appears in a rom-com, you know that it’s a movie with smart writing, few cliches, and an enduring love story. Most importantly, it will be well acted.
In her new movie The Vow, Rachel plays Paige, a newlywed who gets in a car accident that robs her of the last five years of her life. As she shrinks away from friends and a life she can’t remember, her husband Leo (Channing Tatum) struggles to make her fall in love with him again.
Add that to stories of wedding crashers, body switching, and time travelers, and you’ve got a sizable oeuvre of McAdams romance dramas. More
I’m a drama queen.
There. I finally admitted it after dodging the label for years with the fury of a thousand young soldiers set to ward off Armageddon. More
Is the romance fading in your relationship? Are you spending most nights just hanging out, watching TV, eating Chinese food in bed? That sounds awesome. The point of relationships is to find someone who won’t judge you for eating Chinese food in bed. But if you want even more romance you should get your boyfriend to go see The Vow with you. It will be fun for both of you! Don’t believe us? Here’s 10 reasons why. More
I like it when I get in my time machine, and then I step out, and it is 1952! More
Look, I feel like a lot of people want to say that they don’t like Zooey Deschanel because they want to prove that they are smart, and love smart-people things. More
Quite recently, I went to an event for BDSM. If you’re not sure what that is, its Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism. It was a first time experience for me. More
For Love/Hate Week, TheGloss‘ editors are documenting all the things we’re ambivalent about: big breasts, Valentine’s Day, other stuff. I don’t usually experience contradictory attitudes toward things, I’m pretty all or nothing. There’s one thing that came to mind, though, one thing that could probably tarnish my otherwise completely stellar reputation as fashion editor of this site: I fucking love drop-crotch pants. More
Sometimes that special flame of romance goes out. Sometimes that flame was never there to begin with. And sometimes you use that flame to set your partner’s finger on fire. More
TheGloss‘ editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff are having a discussion about the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Jennifer loves the holiday–because she loves presents and happiness!–but Ashley hates it because she hates everything (except, it turns out, novelty portraiture). Then, it all falls apart. More
No, really, sometimes you just want to tell someone that you love them for their body. People love being seen as a piece of meat! More
What is it about romantic movies that have us dragging our friends and loved ones to the theaters, renting them off Netflix, and wearing out the DVDs with repeat viewings? These tales of star-crossed lovers — or best friends whose affection grows into something deeper — give us hope that we can have it, too. Not the kidnappings, letters from the grave, or time travel (though those would be fun), but the enduring, can’t-be-without-you love that powers each of the outlandish plots that we adore.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s a list of our picks for the Most Romantic Movies Of Our Time. For the most part, I tried to pick more recognizable romantic comedies and dramas from the ’90s and ’00s, but there are a few ’80s stragglers. (I promise they’re worth it.) More
