I'm trying to write a romantic sounding song, but I can't come up with any romantic sounding chord progressions. Any tips or examples you could offer me will be greatly appreciated.

now im no song writter by any sctretch of the imagination although im trying to get into the game now, but if i may say so making a song sound romantic isnt so much in the chord progression but more the beat you use it too if you know what i mean...

- SX Strat (w/ Fender Vintage Noisless Pickups, TBX Control, and an active circuit board for +25dB mid boost)

It seems like everything sounds cooler with a capo...

Just keep trying. If you have a vocal melody, make sure the chords match the key. Play until something sounds right.

i can't really tell you how but do what a blues artist would do steal someone's riff

if you do that plan i would suggest a santana type sounding riff

Tips? Honestly, all I can tell you is that there's no easy way to write a song. Its not a mathmatical equation or magical progression designed for romantic songs. You have to figure that out for yourself. Some musicians might feel comfortable with a certain type of chord, but it's all about doing it on your own.

So... um... goodluck with that
