OK, ladies: imagine you’re taking a moonlit walk with the object of your affections. Or maybe you’re dining at a fancy restaurant with your dream date, or cuddling together on a blanket in a field with no one else in sight. All of a sudden, your crush leans in close, looks deeply into your eyes, and whispers, “You’re mine.” What do you do?

If you’re the type who would immediately blush and feel your heart beating at a quickened pace, you’ll probably enjoy the following list of 30 things women want to be told. The list has recently been circulating around Japanese social media sites recently, leaving sparkly, flower petal-filled puddles of shojo manga sappiness oozing in its wake. If, however, you’re of a slightly more cynical disposition, you should also enjoy the compilation, but instead for its value to induce a good chortle.

Don’t worry, because whichever type you are, we promise not to judge!

We have no idea whether it was a man, woman, or chimpanzee who compiled the following list of ‘romantic’ lines that all women, apparently, secretly yearn to hear. Some are sweet, some are corny, and some in our opinion are downright creepy, but all of them are spectacular candidates for “the most cheesy teenage girl fantasy lines.” In any case, we’ve included some pictures of famous manga/anime bishounen [pretty boys] to enhance your reading experience! Enjoy.
