If you aren’t familiar with the term “Netflix and Chill”, today’s post will explain the viral sex catchphrase via my favorite netflix and chill memes. It’s interesting to write about dating as a single woman in her late forties, because in addition to my single women friends, I also have married friends who enjoy living vicariously through my single girl adventures (you know who you are!) so I also see my blog as a public service to keep my married friends “in the know”! To tell the truth, my single girl adventures probably inspire my married friends to stay married, but I digress… So here’s the DatingRelating.com guide to my favorite “Netflix & Chill” memes on the internet!
So WHAT is Netflix & Chill?
Basically, Netflix & Chill is the new “booty call”. I first started hearing a lot of “Netflix & Chill” offers in one of Katarina Phang’s dating forums last year. Women on online dating sites are getting (and giving) the offers, or bragging or complaining about it. It turns out that “Netflix & Chill” has become code for “Let’s hook up”. If food and drink are also involved, this is also known as a “couch date”. So if you receive an offer to Netflix and chill, understand that you will NOT be seeing the end of the movie. At least maybe not right away. 🙂
The FIRST “Netflix & Chill” Meme
Data journalists who report on internet trends believe the first viral Netflix & Chill meme was posted in November 2014 and spread via “Black Twitter”. This tweet describes a “Netflix and Chill Starter Pack” consisting of comfortable clothes and a condom:
Netflix & Chill Meme: My Favorites
Soon after the above tweet went viral, the phrase “netflix & chill” began to gain mainstream popularity, and is believed to have reached catchphrase status around March 15, 2015. So if a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few internet memes to make you spit out your drink!
My favorite Netflix & Chill memes fall into the following categories:
- “20 Minutes into “Netflix and Chill, give her this look”
- “When you suggest “Netflix and Chill” and she says yes”
- Misunderstandings of the invitation, ie “I thought we were really going to watch Netflix and CHILL!!!”
Netflix & Chill Meme: The HALLOWEEN COSTUME!
Netflix & Chill is such a popular catchphrase in the singles set, that I must give this guy, Vincent Powell, 500 Brownie points for creativity. Vincent taped the Netflix logo to a red shirt, and brought along his own bag of ice. He actually used this pic for his Tinder dating profile, because he “quickly learned the way to a ladies heart is through humor” (Guys, are you listening??). I especially love his “20 minutes into Netflix & Chill” face. I hope he gets all the Netflix and Chill opportunities he can handle.
As far as I’m concerned, Vincent Powell’s Tinder profile pic wins Halloween AND the internet!
By the way, my friends at Mashable caught up with Vincent Powell for an interview!
DIY Netflix & Chill Halloween Costume
Why let Vincent Powell have all the fun and attention? He probably doesn’t live in your neighborhood anyway, so why not get a Netflix & Chill t-shirt, and get the hotties in YOUR hood?! This also makes a fun couples costume if one of you is “Netflix” and the other is “Chill”!

By the time you read this, the “Netflix & Chill” catchphrase may have hit its tipping point into household name status. But if not, my funny friends at Buzzfeed Video posted a survey on August 2015. By the time Netflix & Chill becomes a Saturday Night Live sketch, you’ll already be in on the joke!
