...So i'm looking for a romance manga/manhwa in which the female lead is really pretty/beautiful/idol etc. and the main male lead is a social outcast/loner/not popular. I dont mind if there is action or drama but i'd prefer the focus to be on romance. I dont mind seinen or more mature themes as well.

gender bender

Bonnouji is pretty good. The girl is pretty. Guy is a loner. The romance works quite well though.

Horimiya kind of. Though both characters have a side they are keeping a secret from others~ love this manga biggrin

Love Lucky - Probably fits the best out of all my recs.
Koisome Momiji - Although the male lead isn't really an outcast or anything like that.
Yume de Aetara - I generally like slice of life romances like this one, but I ended up dropping it because I could not stand how physically an mentally weak the male mc was set up to be.

Witch Craft Works is the only good one I got. Medaka Box is not terrible.

Typical shonen romance (that's not harem) with the male as MC is usually of this kind, eg GE - Good Ending. Try searching shonen + romance + popular/beautiful female lead (+ unpopular/weak male lead) - harem.

Oh shoot Mirai Nikki! How could I have forgot it?!

Tonari no Kashiwagi-san

But yeah, almost all shounen/seinen romances have this beautiful girl/geeky guy setting.

Nana to Kaoru - Exceptionally good mismatched couple romance. It is considered 'ecchi' but not in the typical sense where it is just there for fanservice. It's basically just a device used form a bond between the two people and to slowly expose their true emotions - I don't even view it as ecchi.

Sukitte ii na yo but the male is the popular one while the girls is the loner, but once they get together she kinda stops being loner-like...
