Netflix and chill has become synonymous with the dating world. To some couples, it means to actually binge-watch television shows and movies on Netflix. However, it’s quickly become a synonym for having sex, or just hooking up.
If “Netflix and chill” is your idea of the perfect date, then you’re in luck. Now, you can find singles who want to do the same thing. There’s a new dating app called TikiTalk, which helps you look for other people who are interested in doing similar activities. The app helps you find users near you, and if you like the same activities. You can search by “Get Brunch, “Get Korean BBQ,” and of course, “Netflix and Chill,” for example.
TikiTalk is completely free to use. But co-founder Daniel Ahn said why and his partnering co-founder wanted to use the new phrase “Netflix and chill” on their new dating app.
“With Tinder, you have to swipe with every person. With this app, you literally open it, and you see who’s around you. From there, you can send them an invite to Netflix and chill…There’s really nothing else you can do with your significant other – you’re just watching Netflix and, like, chilling.”
Riveting. Ahn also says that users shouldn’t take the app very seriously. If you’re looking to have fun with someone, you should do it safely. Just make sure that one of you actually has a Netflix account and s/he is the real deal.
If you’re on the lucky people who’s having “Netflix and chill” date, then you will need the perfect playlist. Spotify users have been creating playlists dedicated the racy date idea. After the popular streaming service noticed that users were creating their own playlists dedicated to the infamous date night idea, they aggregated the 20 most popular songs from all of the lists to create the ultimate “Netflix and Chill” playlist.
At the top of the list is Ginuwine’s 1996 hit song “Pony.” Other songs that round out the list include Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” Ray J’s “One Wish,” “The Weeknd’s “Where You Belong,” and Chet Faker’s No Diggity.” In fact, there are a lot more sexual songs than romantic songs on the ultimate “Netflix and Chill” list.
