This Valentine's Day, we'll be planning date nights that follow social distancing guidelines—which means you have the perfect excuse to skip the fancy meal and spend the evening on the couch in your comfiest clothes. One of our favorite at-home date night ideas is to throw your own movie night (whether you watch in-person or virtually) because it's an easy way to spend quality time together without a lot of planning ahead. 

If you're quarantining with your valentine, grab the snacks (stovetop popcorn is my go-to) and snuggle up on the couch with a rom-com or a romantic drama. If you can't be together, use the Netflix Party app to stream the movie at the same time; you'll even be able to chat with each other during the film! Or, organize a virtual movie night for your best gal pals.

Here are all the best romantic movies to stream on each platform.
