The 17 Best Reactions to Being Asked to "Netflix and Chill" in Case You Need One ...

It has recently come to the attention of the internet at large that “Netflix and chill” does not actually mean “let us hang out together as we watch this documentary on Bronies.” The assumption is that you will actually bang while Netflix plays in the background. Upon hearing this, many people reminisce about the days when coming over to watch a movie meant just that. I understand. I used to think so, too. Most girls do and many guys do, as well. Still, think about it. Did you ever hang out with someone, pop a movie in the VCR or DVD player, and suddenly it's like porn music starts playing in the background? It's always been this way. Sometimes you're into it, sometimes you're not, and sometimes you just want to finish binge-watching “American Horror Story.” Now that you're aware of both the euphemism and the idea, here are a few possible reactions for various Netflix and chill situations.

When You're Trying to Get Ready for the Evening...

When You're Trying to Get Ready for the Evening... Because if it's Netflix and chill then you have to shave your legs, put on makeup, and wear a pair of underwear without popped elastic. However, if it's just Netflix and, you know, chill, then it's all about sweatpants and tee shirts.

Considering the art of subtlety is key, sometimes the evening vibe calls for effortlessly chic—like you didn’t try too hard but still look stunningly put-together. A cozy, oversized sweater and those jeans that fit just right hit the sweet spot between comfy and tasteful. Accessorize with simple, yet elegant jewelry and let your hair fall into that perfect messy bun. Ready to turn heads with that I woke up like this charm, or just snuggle up with some popcorn—it’s your call, girl.

Frequently asked questions

The phrase 'Netflix and chill' started as a simple way to say watching Netflix and relaxing, but it has become a slang term that often implies an invitation to hook up or engage in intimate activities while pretending to watch a movie or a show.

You can say something like, 'Thanks for the invite, but I think I'll just chill at my place tonight,' or 'I'm really just interested in watching the movie, if that's cool with you.' Just be honest and direct about your intentions.

Yes, you can use humor to deflect the invitation. For instance, you could say, 'I hope your Wi-Fi is ready because my only plan is to binge-watch a whole season,' or 'Sure, but if you interrupt my show, you're going to need your own Netflix account!'

If you're interested, respond warmly and play along with it. You could say something like, 'Sounds like a great plan, I'll bring the popcorn!' or 'Netflix and chill? I thought you'd never ask!' Just make sure you're both on the same page.
