Pretty much every Millennial adores Netflix, and now, Netflix might actually be able to find you someone else to love. A new online dating service, appropriately called Netfling could be the Netflix matchmaker you've been waiting for - but if you're looking for true love, you may want to look elsewhere.
How does Netfling work? Unlike other dating services that hook you up with people based on common interests (or, if the service is Tinder, based on whether you think the other person is hot) this one matches you based on your similar taste in Netflix. Sounds pretty simple, right?
Of course, you're not automatically hooked up with people who are as addicted to New Girl marathons as you are. After you log in with your Netflix info, you're given a series of matches that you can select from - pretty much exactly like Tinder. Basically, you want to find someone you're attracted to and can share the couch with without any problems, which sounds like a pretty sweet deal on paper.
Of course, there are some problems with Netfling's concept. The first? I'm not so sure everyone's Netflix binging preferences are all that different. Pretty much everyone under the sun watched Breaking Bad at some point in their lives, and if you didn't re-watch Friends the second it hit Netflix you're likely a robot. That means you might have pretty generic dudes listed under your potential "matches," even if they do like the same TV as you.
Another ish? Just because you have wildly different TV taste doesn't mean that you aren't a great match. Lots of couples can't stand one another's favorite TV shows (my boyfriend isn't exactly my Pretty Little Liars viewing buddy) and they somehow are able to make a relationship work just fine.
At the end of the day, Netfling may be a fun app to try, but if you're looking for your soulmate, you may want to look in the real world.
