To romance Donald you need to make friends with him by going along with his pranks and schemes.

If he likes you, he'll invite you to merit-earning activities with him, and you should be able to choose him at Christmas.
Be nice to Ellen in the first semester and you should be able to choose her at Christmas. To start a romance send her a romantic valentine.
To romance the Professor you have to win the election for class treasurer. Then in the second semester you will run into him performing a ritual. Try to rescue him and the romance path will start.
Be nice to Virginia in the first semester and you should be able to choose her at Christmas. To start a romance you will need a high Weird score.
"Big" Steve Kenyon
The secret romance option, sort of. If you get him to win the bunny from the claw machine and then give it to him you'll get a few scenes with him later. In the later versions of the game (including all Steam versions) you can now go out with Steve and dance with him at the end of the game.
You can't have a relationship with Pastel in Horse Hall but you can get a kiss, if you send her a valentine she pops up later and sprays you with perfume and asks you to kiss her.
In Magical Diary: Wolf Hall, there are a number of characters that have completely developed romances.
To enable Minnie's route, you must become co-presidents with her.
Talk to Barbara often by going to the dungeons on Saturdays to enable her route. If you run for President, she will stop talking to you.
You must split up Damien and Ellen in order to pursue Ellen's route. You can choose to distract Damien and then break up with him at the Dark Dance, or you can choose to distract Ellen and confess the truth to her after the Dark Dance. If you distract her and don't confess, she will later dump you for Damien.
When William asks you to distract Ellen from Damien, suggest to distract Damien instead.
There are other people you can dance with at the May Day Ball in Magical Diary: Wolf Hall, though not all of them have fully developed routes.
To access his side route, join the Mushroom Club and make sure Manuel is elected treasurer (which means you cannot become Co-President, and you must vote for him).
To access her side route, follow William's route to Valentines Day, then send him a romantic valentine. Do not confess in private, and he will break things off with you. You can then pursue Angela.
To dance with Laurel, go to the May Day Ball by yourself, and reveal your true identity. She, as the Princess of the May, will dance with you.
To unlock Pastel's side route, follow Minnie's route, and give in to Pastel's blackmail to break things off with her.
