I'm looking for an anime with about romance or with some romance that actually goes somewhere, without harem or anything like that, I want it to go somewhere, where the characters are mature and not massive pussies about the whole thing. A good example would be something like:

Welcome to The NHK
Bakemonogatari
Spice and Wolf
ReLife
Baccano! (to an extent)
Angel Beats
Arakawa Under the Bridge
Steins; Gate
Tora Dora (Even though it takes a while to get things going, at least they do)

The thing that makes these anime different is the dialogue isn't terrible, there's actual some substance... l know l know an anomaly for anime, there's no harem, something actually happens, and they aren't super cheesy.

Since you have Angel Beats on there I suggest starting with Little Busters. Some others:

Re:Zero
Eden of the East
A Silent Voice
Whisper of the Heart
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

My Love Story might fit, though you may find the main character's mannerisms to be intense enough to tip over into being cheesy.

Some others:

Natsuyuki Rendezvous
Kokoro Connect (make sure to watch the OVA series)
Snow White with Red Hair
The Great Passage (romance is a bit secondary to the plot, but it fits the bill nonetheless)
Aishiteruze Baby
Amagami SS (not only does it go somewhere--it goes there six times in one season!)
