Shock News: Most women don’t actually want to ‘Netflix and Chill’ on a first date

Now, we don’t want to be that guy but someone’s going to have to break it to you at some point.

Netflix and chill, your favourite new meme for sexy time and go-to Tinder date suggestion is, in the majority of cases, futile.

Despite what your stallion pal Clint has told you, most women really don’t want you to invite them for a ‘Netflix and chill’ session on your first date. Yup, we know right? It’s bonkers.

Who wouldn’t want to spend their evening not watching a film and being pawed by a complete stranger that looks several sizes smaller than their profile picture?

The news comes following a highly scientific study by the worryingly named dating site ‘WhatsYourPrice.com’* (more on that below), who surveyed the women on their site by presumably asking what their ideal first date was. 

  • Around 55 per cent said that, no, they would not want to stream a flick with you under the implication that ‘other stuff’ would be recquired of them.
  • 29 per cent of women said they would consider it - but only as a second date, never on a first date, which is fairly reasonable.

So stop asking people to Netflix and Chill, try other classic dating tropes instead like: the cinema, lunch, dinner, a drink, coffee or horseback riding.


*We’d forgive you for assuming that ‘Whatsyourprice.com’ is actually an escort site.

It’s not.

It’s a dating site. A dating site where, admittedly, you outbid other people to go on dates with attractive people who then take that money to go on dates with you, but it's still only a dating site nonetheless.

Sure, it might sound a hell-of-a-lot like an escort site but crucially (and possibly legally) it isn’t. It’s a dating site.

In fact, in their own words: 

WhatsYourPrice.com is strictly an online dating service for people who are looking for a dates [sic]. This is not an escort site, nor will we permit any type of escorting on this site.

The purpose of this site is to give generous members access to attractive people they normally would not be able to meet. Generous members are paying for an opportunity to win over our attractive members, and are only paying for that first date.

Therefore, we do not accept any profiles from escorts.

So there you go.

NOT. AN. ESCORT. SITE.

It literally couldn’t be any clearer that this is just a dating site for generous people that want to pay attractive people to date them. And that’s totally fine.

Glad we cleared that up.
