In both AMG and Girls Bravo, a beautiful girl appears in a loser's life, causing a great love story to begin. Ah! My Goddess isn't a harem anime like Girls Bravo, and it is a little more serious, but they are still very similar.
Watch and you'll see!
Mio Hagiwara is a young and upcoming actress who has a fairly normal life -- high school, fame, and a well-known idol singer for a best friend. There is only one thing missing from her life: love.

Chitose Hitotose was orphaned at a young age and is now in high school. He yearns for a family and a place to belong, but his long years of independence and isolation are setting his feet on a dangerous path. What is the solution that his teachers conceive? He needs a mother... but it's not just one, but five "Mamas!" Absolutely no one can discover that his teachers live under his roof, and he has to hide the fact from everyone, from the class president to the principal! With their maternal instincts in overdrive and mysterious pasts, can Chitose learn the lesson of happiness?
Ah My Goddess and Happy Lesson center around a lonely student surrounded by girls who try to help him. While Happy Lesson focuses more on wacky hijinks and Ah My Goddess focuses more on relationships, I think you will find a lot of common and enjoy one if you enjoyed the other.
Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
The main male character in both of these are very similar, not only because they share the same name! I found their personalities to be very similar. They are surrounded by girls who are of varying ages, and they have fun playing with them everyday. If you are interested in a more twisted harem show, check this one out.
The responsible Sophie led a relatively normal life, safe within the walls of the hat shop in which she works; for outside, it is rumored, the evil wizard Howl roams the land in his mobile black castle. After a chance and mystical encounter, poor Sophie finds herself transformed by a spell which makes her appear to be an old woman, and thus embarks on an adventure to find Howl’s castle and put an end to her curse. A mystical world of talking flames, sentient scarecrows and magic aplenty awaits those who seek the legendary Howl...
Well this is a rather unorthodox recomendation. However, I truly feel that if you enjoyed Ah! My godess you will love Howl's Moving Castle. Both are true feel-good-love-animes that you would want to watch with your girl/boyfriend.
