I guarentee you that you won't face this problem again once you check out this list of the 30 best chick flicks. Enjoy!

1. The Notebook (2004)

How can you not love this heartwarming, sappy tearjerker? The Notebook is a classic love story that's bound to make you laugh, cry, and wish you had a Noah of your own.

2. Clueless (1995)

Clueless is a classic 90's chick flick. As if we didn't love the 90's enough, Alicia Silverstone is hilarious in this movie. Clueless is a perfect go-to movie for your next girls night in.

3. Mean Girls (2004)

This movie put an entirely new meaning to what it means to be from Africa. Girls quote this movie on the daily. How could you not? The plot is irresistible to make fun of and laugh about.

4. Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997)

As if Lisa Kudrow isn't funny enough as Pheobe in Friends, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is a hilarious tale of the shenanigans that go on when two high school best friends attend their reunion. It's definitely a must-see and a great way to laugh about your future and what your high school reunion might be like!

5. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

This movie puts a whole new spin on Shakespeare. Set in a modern day high school, this twisted love story is too irresistable to ignore.

6. Miss Congeniality (2000)

Miss Congeniality brought a whole new meaning to kicking butt. How many women do you know who can go undercover as an FBI agent at a pageant? Exactly.

7. Sweet Home Alabama (2002)

As a southerner, I can't help but adore the charm in this movie. Plus, it's fun hearing Reese Witherspoon with a thick accent. What's not to love?

8. The Lucky One (2012)

Zac Efron is all grown up in this romantic chick flick and fate brings him to the woman who kept him going during his time in the war. This movie is romantic and absolutely irresistable. The plot is an interesting twist on a love story, making it different than most romantic movies.

9. The Holiday (2006)

With an awesome cast, The Holiday never fails to disappoint. Two women on opposite sides of the world switch lives (houses and all!) for a few week and the swap results in awesome adventures and even better love interests.

10. Valentine's Day (2010)

Talk about good timing! With Valentine's Day coming up, this is the perfect chick flick for you to convince your man to watch. Valentine's Day follows several awesomely adorable love stories. It's a great movie that's guarenteed to make you swoon.

11. No Strings Attached (2011)

No Strings Attached is a classic tale about what happens when friends with benefits turn into something more. Plus, how can you resist Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman? Talk about a dynamic duo!

12. Friends with Benefits (2011)

Like No Strings Attached, Friends With Benefits is a pretty self-explanatory title. That said, the plot is anything but average. Several adorable scenes make Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake an hilarious romantic comedy team!

13. The Parent Trap (1998)

This might be a twist, but how many guys do you know who love The Parent Trap? Before Lindsay Lohan went crazy, she was an adorable redhead. This movie is a classic and fun for any night in.

14. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)

A magazine lover, I have always loved this movie.  Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey are rock stars in this movie. I can quote it from beginning to end, and I’m still not sick of it.

15. Sex and the City (2008)

Sex and the City is a classic chick flick, especially for Big Apple lovers and city-goers like myself. Carrie Bradshaw has been my role model for as long as I can remember and this movie is way too fun to not see.

16. 27 Dresses (2008)

First of all, we all wish we had 27 dresses in our closet. That said, this movie gives the word “bridesmaid” a whole new hilariously horrendous meaning.

17. Gone With the Wind (1939)

"You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how." Swoon.

18. A Walk to Remember (2002)

I bawled like a baby the first time I saw this... and the second time. A Walk to Remember is one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen. This is a must-see.

19. Crazy, Stupid Love (2011)

Crazy, Stupid Love is crazy awesome. First of all, Ryan Gossling is irresistible. With Ryan’s looks and Steve Carell’s humor, this movie is a perfect chick flick for a night in with the girls.

20. He’s Just Not that Into You (2009)

Most of us have either heard this line or have had to say it to a friend. Either way, this movie is a classic and it’s so fun to follow all of the stories from the beginning of relationships to a marriage.

21. When Harry Met Sally (1989)

When Harry Met Sally is a classic friendship-turned-relationship story. It is a must-see flick for everyone.

22. The Ugly Truth (2009)

Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl are hilarious together in this movie about the realities of men’s thoughts on relationships.

23. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Audrey Hepburn is a goddess. If you haven't seen it, this classic chick flick must be on your bucket list.

24. Sixteen Candles (1984)

This movie has all of the flair of a classic love story with a great sense of humor. It’s a perfect chick flick and a great rendition of those awkward teenage years.

25. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

How could you go wrong with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks? This romantic comedy has everything you could possibly ask for.

26. Dirty Dancing (1987)

Patrick Swayze is to die for... and so is the music. Dirty Dancing always guarantees a fun night.

27. Bridesmaids (2011) 

This modern comedy will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Every scene is hilarious and this movie is a definite go-to movie for a girls night in.

28. Pretty Woman (1990)

Julie Roberts’ interesting career makes this movie hilarious and romantic. It’s a must see for every girl. Plus, who doesn’t love a good 90’s movie?

29. Titanic (1997)

Titanic is possibly one of the saddest and most romantic movies of all time. Crawl up with a blanket and a snack to this one, but don’t forget your Kleenex. It’s bound to make you cry.

30. Legally Blonde (2001)

The epitome of a wonderful chick flick. From Elle Wood’s sorority house scene to the video that got her into Harvard, Legally Blonde definitely deserves its spot on this list.
