When it comes to romance, there is no better source of inspiration than the artificial love created in films. The silver screen makes approaching women look easy, as though the perfect line rolls off your tongue rather than in fact thinking of it two weeks later. Here are some of our favourites, watch and learn, from the women as much as the men.

"I hate to see you go, I love to watch you leave."

6| Billy CrystalWhen Harry Met Sally (1989)

"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
