I am still not too sure about this yet but I know that I think war hammer is incredibly exciting and that I want to learn more about it. If I am thinking about starting though what would you say is the best army to get or like how to go about it? And if you have any like tips or anything you could tell me about the game or anything that some newer people to this may not know, such as me. Please let me know. Thanks :)

I'd recommend browsing through the codex at your local hobby store or book shop, find the race and army that best suits your needs and then go from there. Its all about research when you are starting an army. It'd be crap if you started say... Orks and halfway through your project you're like "I really dont like these guys. They seemed good at the time." Like I said its all about research.

Next is learning the rules of the game... DUN DUN DUN

I don't quite know if I have any needs. I really think Skaven,Dark Elves and Dwarfs are the coolest. My boyfriend said he is gonna teach me some more about it tomorrow. I know some of the rules of the game already, but not too much.

Check out the fantasy section of the forums and it'll be a great help to you. I know you said your BF is going to help you but the poster above me does have a good idea to get you started.
To be honest, you cant just pin down which army is the "best" or "worst". If your told that Ork's are the best, and you pick them just because of that? Well, you just might not like the play style that they are and get tired of the game without really giving it a chance. Warhammer Fantasy and 40K both require some research before hand. If you just pick one because someone said it's good, chances are (IMO) that you wont be happy.
It's all about how YOU want to play. Like ranged (bows for example)? Then you'll want an Elf army. Want to slug it out with some swords/axes/etc.? Orks, Dwarfs, those are the type you want. It's all about how you feel that you want to play the game. Once you decide how you want to play, what would "fit" you, then it's alot easier to pick an army. Btw, the same goes with Warhammer 40K. Figure out your play style, what appeals to you, then you can easily pick your army.
