Today’s “dating” techniques are far from productive. And that’s coming from a girl who couldn’t care less about dating, so let that sink in.

The only boys who Netflix & Chill are f*@# boys.

Seriously.  That’s why relationships don’t come from Netflix & Chill. 

I literally don’t have time.

I don’t have time to waste on “talking” with no tangible outcome to show for it.  I’m too busy actually living my life, creating bonds and networks that will last through the semester. When exactly do you think I’d want to skip those leftovers in the fridge I’ve been looking forward to eating, to just not watch the show I would actually watch if I stay home?

I have enough stress in my life.

Sure, it’s fun and “not serious,” but then what’s the point?  I have enough stress as it is with classes, two jobs and an internship, and I don’t need to add stress to my life waiting for someone to text back or wondering what I am to some guy.

I would rather be waiting by my phone for a call for that internship I applied for in NYC next semester, or to see whether or not my Visa went through to live in Greece.

It’s immature.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to shame anyone or put you don’t if you like the idea of no commitment. Not everyone is looking for commitment, and that’s perfectly OK. I’m just saying that I want my life to be in order, and “talking” has no sense of order and no future. 

No strings attached always comes with a catch.

I have heard friend after friend, girls and guys alike, complain about feelings caught from Netflix & Chill. But see, since it is such a trend now, they can’t do anything about it. They knew what it was going in and feelings are not part of the deal. But they always seem to come into the picture and then you have to hide them or something.

Seems like a waste of time to me.

So thanks but no thanks, I’ll watch Netflix on my own.
