There's something about this actor that allows him to know all the right things to say and when to say them. I mean, who knew Tom Hiddleston's quotes about love would form my new guide to dating, but here we are.

It helps that Hiddleston is a pretty inspirational speaker who uses big words and flowery sentences to charm everyone. If you think he sounds poetic talking about every day life, just wait until you actually hear him talk about love.

His words are wonderful and whether you're in a relationship or not, they hold a lot of truth and wisdom for everyone alike.
Here are 11 of his best quotes about love that will make you smile and melt your heart all at the same time.
"I THINK IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ROMANTIC YOU’VE GOT TO GO ALL THE WAY: A BEAUTIFUL DINNER SOMEWHERE LOVELY, WITH BOAT-LOADS OF FLOWERS, CHOCOLATES AND CHAMPAGNE. BUT IT MIGHT ALSO BE NICE TO WRAP UP WARM AND SIT ON A ROOF SOMEWHERE, WITH A CUP OF HOT SOUP AND YOUR GIRL, WATCH THE PLANES COME IN OVER LONDON AND LISTEN TO THE NIGHT."
Attention: we now know Tom Hiddleston's perfect date and it just made me like him even more, the romantic bastard.

"YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH A POSSIBILITY ... THERE'S NO SELF PERSUASION. IT'S JUST 'I HAVE TO DO THAT, AND THAT'S WHERE I'M GOING.'"

I love that intimacy for Hiddleston goes beyond the physical into the emotional connection a pair shares through being honest with one another.

I CAME, STOOD UP BEHIND HER AND GENTLY WHISPERED: 'IT’S A HARD CHOICE, ISN’T IT?' ... MY DEED WAS EVEN TOO ROMANTIC AS MY GIRLFRIEND HAD ALMOST FAINTED FROM FEAR. SINCE THEN I’VE BECOME MORE CAREFUL IN ROMANTIC ACTIONS."
Tom Hiddleston: making women faint since even before he was a movie star.
"OF COURSE, THERE’S SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE."
This was something he said after a fan asked for a hug. I rest my case, Hiddleston is the sweetest man on the planet.
