    I make them all the time, doesn't matter whether I romantically like the person or not. So, yes, yes I have.

    No, I haven't - why should I do that? It's lame.

    I just e-mail them a generic 'Love song' Spotify playlist from Sharemyplaylists.

    Does the trick.

    I didn't even realise it was a 'thing'. Clearly I don't watch enough teen drama.

    I made a mix CD for one of my boyfriends for Valentines day once! It had songs on it which reminded me of us. The thing is though, I don't know that people actually listen to them when you make them! I was watching 'Bring it on' the other day cause I saw it on Film 4 or something and the guy there makes the lead girl a mix tape but it was a song he had written and composed himself, that would be much sweeter than a normal boring mixtape!

    Mixtape doesnt need to be an american style 'songs that remind me of you' type CD.

    The mix tapes I've made for people have all been a collection of the best songs from bands they hadnt heard before that I thought they may like.

    It's the equilivant of saying to my gf "hey, wanna come watch xxx band with me this afternoon at the other stage?" whilst at a mmusic festival. Hardly a lack of grip on reality or similarity to american sitcom.

    This! I have made mixtapes for people before. Its a good way of introducing people to bands that more people should know about.

    Nah. The OP was asking about making a mixtape for someone you "like". Not just a friend. making mixtapes for friends is fine (although slightly pointless, i usually just send some youtube links over MSN).

    And romantic mixtapes never work in Britain. Check out the inbetweeners...

    I have made mixtapes for people that I "like", but not with romantic songs, just awesome bands I thought they should listen to. To be fair that was years ago, before cd burners and msn, and now I would just tell people to google bands/send links :p:

    I was once given a mix tape by a guy who I'd been dating (not even going out with), for like 3 weeks, and it freaked me out so much that I broke up with him shortly after...

    He was coming on far too strong, and some of the songs he chose made me feel uncomfortable.
