Need a good low-key first date idea? Queue a handful of classics on your Netflix. While we still love going to the movies, streaming flicks on Netflix shaves the exorbitant costs of tickets and theater snacks. It's a savvy option for students and folks on a budget, as long as clear expectations are set (yes, we're talking about Netflix and chill.) Plus, it's more comfortable to do dinner and a movie at home. If you're not feeling what's on the screen, simply find a different film.
When it comes to the actual movie to watch, keep it short and sweet since first dates are already inherently awkward. A three-hour drama, for example, may be too intense and long as you navigate the rough waters of first impressions. But we've got you covered, so spiff up, get groomed, and keep reading to discover our favorite fun, campy, and light first date Netflix movies!
