The boy and I have a mutual friend that he works with. She is young, funny, smart, pretty, and single. She has not had much luck with the usual dating apps. She wants to date, but she is also introverted and doesn’t get out much. As she says, “I don’t bar hop or climb mountains. I want to find my couch potato in crime.” So, the boy and I were chatting about her in the kitchen, and the husband was on the couch commenting.
Husband: Well, she’s never going to find a boyfriend watching Netflix.
Me: Wait a minute! What if she could? I bet we could design an app for that.
Husband: Tinder already exists. You can date from your couch.
Me and the son (at the same time) – No!! No!! You could match people by shows.
Husband looks a bit scared because sometimes the boy and I share a brain. He also looks confused because he’s really not a big fan of movies or TV unless it’s Shameless (American and UK).
Me: Yes!! People could choose the shows they stream and the movies they like. We could call it Netflix and chill.
Son: Mom, I’m pretty sure Netflix would sue us for that.
Me: What about Hulu and hug?
Son: No, mom. No.
Friends, does such an app exist? Can you find your partner based on your streaming preferences? If not, can one of you invent this? We can go on Shark Tank together.
