Romance genre enthusiasts, rejoice: Netflix is here to assist your Valentine’s Day 2021 watch queues. Whether you are single like Emily Cooper, in a pretend-turned-real relationship like Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky, or in a steamy marriage like Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Bassett, Netflix has an extensive list of romance-themed TV shows and films to stream on (or even ahead of) the official holiday of love on Feb. 14. 

The streamer helped us break down the titles by specific romance genres; between feel-good romantic movies, love and dating reality TV, LGBTQ+ romance, and gal pal TV shows, there’s enough content to keep you occupied until next Valentine’s Day. With a handy image guide (above) that also cross examines the sweet, steamy, red flag (we’re looking at you, Joe Goldberg), and true love narratives, allow this to be the ultimate Netflix Valentine’s guide. 

Per Netflix, there are numerical codes to access these different romance genres. We break it down below, so you don’t have to. Browse titles by romance genres by clicking on the headers below. Don’t know where to start? Allow the suggested titles to help inform your queue.
