No doubt you've heard about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's romantic dates--most famously he planned a private dinner and movie viewing at the Staples Center.

Classy.

Justin knows all too well how to ramp up the romance and win a girl over, and you have to wonder if Sel missed that attention after they broke up.

In an interview with GulfNews.com, Justin explained why he's a romantic, saying, "I guess I grew up with my mom, so she influenced me a lot. So growing up and having your mom always around you, you become a sensitive guy."

He added, "I think it's up to the guy to be romantic. I think it's the guy's responsibility to take her out. It can't be the other way around. That would take away my masculinity; I feel if that would happen."

A hopeless romantic and kind of old-school manly man? Who new Biebs had it in him?

So what's in Justin's romantic playbook? He explains, "I think that the most romantic things to do for someone are the things that you spend time on."

You won't hear any argument from us.

He added, "Like having a picnic where you bring all the stuff they like. You make it something that she's going to remember so she can tell all of her friends, stuff she can say, 'He did this for me!' That's great."
