Here are some great Netflix movies to accompany your hot gay date night
The phrase “Netflix and chill” roughly means hooking up, or something like that, but it’s also a bit more complicated. “Netflix and chill” has become a case of social media-fueled semantic drift gone mad. While its origins date back to 2007, it has only recently become part of mainstream vocabulary, including among those who aren’t young and in college.
Originally, “Netflix and chill” really did mean “chilling out and watching Netflix”. It was pretty much a solo activity. Since then, the phrase has become a 21st-century version of “Do you want to come up for some ‘coffee’?”
So either you’re bringing home a total stranger or having a hot date night with your bf, here are some good Netflix movies to accompany your “Netflix and chill” moment.
