It's impossible not to have heard of having just a fling...or as the kids call it Netflix and chill by now. Even our parents (and grandparents) totally know what it means when a guy and a girl hang out at one of their apartments and put on a movie or a TV show. Yeah, that's a bit creepy to think about, but it's true.
The question of whether a guy wants to date a girl or just hook up with her has always been around. Now we have a new language for it: we can ask whether the guy that we're crushing on wants to just Netflix and chill with us, or whether he's actually boyfriend material. It's a very serious question and we've definitely texted our BFFs about this subject a lot. Sure, sometimes we just want something casual, but most of the time, it's safe to say that we're in it for the long run. What can we say? We're probably all hopeless romantic when it comes right down to it. It's definitely thanks to years of rom-com watching.
So how do we know if a man or woman is down to watch Netflix (or not watch Netflix as the case might be...) or if they want something more serious? Instead of driving our best friends crazy with our many questions, we can totally look to the stars. Check out 12 zodiac signs that are only good for a Fling and 12 that are relationship material!
24 Just A Fling: Aquarius Man
The Aquarius man needs a lot of space. If you're a girl who wants to date him and you come on too strongly, he's probably going to freak out. It seems like he's best for just a hookup rather than a relationship. Of course, there's nothing wrong with just being casual if that's what you're looking for... but if you want a BF, he's not yours.
Ugh. The whole needing space thing is so annoying, right? How many times have you been really into someone and all they could say was that they needed time apart from you? Talk about a blow to the ego. If you're looking for something more serious than a Netflix session, then you definitely want to look elsewhere because you won't find it here.
23 Just A Fling: Libra Man
While the Libra guy can definitely be a boyfriend because Libras have some awesome qualities, this guy cares a lot about what someone looks like. Like a lot. And that makes him a good candidate for hooking up since, well, physical attributes definitely matter a lot when a guy is choosing his hook-up partners.
If you're looking for something equally as casual, why not Netflix and chill with a Libra man? You could do a lot worse than someone who thinks that you're the most beautiful woman in the world (at least for the time being...). Sure, you might think that it's kind of lame to hook up with someone for the ego boost, but hey, it's your love life. You can do whatever you want. This just might be what you need right now.
22 Just A Fling: Aries Man
Are you a girl who wants a super passionate guy? If that's the case, then the Aries man is your best bet. The Aries man is said to be full of passion. He's a good bet to Netflix and chill with.
What if you fall for him and want to make him your boyfriend? Sorry. That's just not going to happen. Why not? Because he's too stubborn and tough to be actual relationship material. He has some less than great qualities, like wanting to get a girl to fall in love with him and then getting kind of bored when he's got her. Ugh. If you're looking for a BF, then steer clear, but if you just want something casual and short-lived, then he's all yours.
21 Just A Fling: Cancer Woman
The Cancer woman is super into being physical. If you're looking to Netflix and chill and could care less about being in a real relationship, then she's your girl.
She's definitely comfortable with being physically intimate, and she doesn't need to be in a relationship in order for that to happen. That's music to your ears if you're a guy that just wants something casual, right? And if you're a Cancer woman yourself, you can probably relate to this. Your friends and family probably ask you why you're not settling down yet but you just don't get what the rush is. You want to have fun and that involves some casual nights in with Netflix (and the object of your affection... right now, that is).
20 Just A Fling: Taurus Woman
If this is you, then congrats, you're way too stubborn to be in a relationship. That's just your nature and there's really nothing that you can do about it. You've probably been told your entire life that you're way too stubborn and it might have even caused problems in your previous romantic relationships. While it must suck to be called stubborn, you really are, so it's not like people are lying. This is why you're down to Netflix and chill.
Taurus women and men are way too stubborn for love and all that jazz, so this is one personality trait that both genders have. Good to know, right? Maybe you even had a crush on a Taurus once and couldn't believe how stubborn they were. Now it all makes sense.
19 Just A Fling: Taurus Man
Yup, the Taurus man is way too stubborn to be in a relationship just like the Taurus woman. If you're into the idea of something casual and you happen to have a thing for a Taurus guy, then you've got nothing to worry about. He's definitely great to Netflix and chill with because you won't have to care that he's stubborn AF and refuses to compromise. That's not an issue when you just want to hook up with someone.
The only problem would be if you fall for him accidentally. Unfortunately, he just might not be boyfriend material thanks to his super stubborn nature. Just imagine how annoying he would be, always trying to get his way and refusing to see things from your perspective. That's not exactly #relationshipgoals...
18 Just A Fling: Gemini Man
The Gemini man absolutely loves being physical and intimate. Based on that fact, he's definitely a good bet for a Netflix and chill session.
He might make the worst boyfriend ever because of one main reason: he gets bored in a flash. If you do end up dating the Gemini man and things start getting more serious than just Netflix and chilling, you'll find that out soon enough. Sure, he might like you and want to get to know you better, but his eyes might start wandering. That would suck for you and isn't exactly great on the old ego, so you probably want to steer clear of that situation before it happens. But if you just want a hook-up, the Gemini man should be perfect.
17 Just A Fling: Sagittarius Woman
According to zodiac experts, the Sagittarius woman is pretty physical and confident. She loves being spontaneous and having adventures. Thanks to those qualities, it takes a lot for her to want to settle down and be in a relationship with someone. She won't think that any guy is suitable to be her boyfriend.
If this is you, you might get a lot of flak from the people in your life about why you don't want to be in a relationship. It's not in your nature to care, though, so you just shrug and keep on living your super fun life. Honestly, all you want to do is have fun and do whatever you want when you want it. You're definitely not looking for anything more serious than Netflix and chilling.
16 Just A Fling: Capricorn Man
Oh, the Capricorn man. According to zodiac experts, this is a guy who judges people super easily and quickly. That might make him a bad boyfriend... and it would definitely make it impossible for him to even become your boyfriend since you might not even make it past the first date with him. He just might act like he's too good for you and he might be so picky that there's no second date in your future.
This guy also likes being in charge (like really, really likes it) so it's hard for him to find someone that he likes enough to be in a relationship with. It seems like he's a good Netflix and chill candidate. He would also rather focus on things other than finding a relationship, so the other parts of his life are much more important to him.
15 Just A Fling: Leo Woman
Leos are known for being kind of arrogant (okay, for being super arrogant -- sorry, Leos) and the Leo man and woman are both the same in that regard. Leos need to be in charge and in control of absolutely everything in their lives. They can't just sit back and let things happen. They're going to make things happen instead.
While that's awesome and inspiring and admirable, that arrogance does make the Leo woman anything but girlfriend material. If this is you, then you probably don't care for relationships and would rather Netflix and chill any day of the week rather than try to find a boyfriend. You love being in control of your life and the compromise and communication of relationships just don't appeal to you.
14 Just A Fling: Sagittarius Man
The Sagittarius man wants to have a lot of fun. That's super important to him, so he's more of a Netflix and chill man than a boyfriend.
Sure, it might be kind of annoying to hear that since you know that being in a relationship can be fun. Don't you just hate all the stigma and stereotypes that surround relationships these days?! It's honestly great being in a relationship since you know that you have this super special person that you can share your life with. And of course, you two can have fun together, especially if you get along and have a ton of stuff in common (which you should if you're in a relationship in the first place). But Sagittarius guys are more likely to want something casual than something more serious.
13 Just A Fling: Leo Man
Yup, the Leo man is just as arrogant as the Leo woman, and that makes him really hard to be in a relationship with.
Have you ever dated a cocky, conceited guy? Maybe you went on a first date with someone like this once (or more than once, unfortunately). You probably couldn't even get a word in edgewise and wondered why he even wanted to go out with you in the first place. Definitely not a super fun time. If you made this guy your boyfriend, your life was even worse since you would have to experience his bad attitude on a regular basis. Lucky you. You definitely don't want to have a boyfriend like this, but if you want to Netflix and chill with that cute Leo guy that you just met, what's stopping you?!
12 Relationship: Pisces Man
The Pisces man is honestly really amazing. He's a total hopeless romantic and really wants to fall in love. Yes, there's a guy out there who wants to fall in love and who wants to be romantic. What a concept. Just kidding. Well, kind of.
He also loves a girl with a sense of humor so that's important to him. If you're a sweet, hilarious girl who also wants to fall in love, then the Pisces man just might be your dream boyfriend. He's definitely boyfriend material and he would never dream of only Netflix and chilling with you. He wants something so much more. If that's what you want too, then this is absolutely music to your ears. He's the best since he'll want to make you his girlfriend... and you can watch Netflix with him, too, of course.
11 Relationship: Aquarius Woman
This woman definitely wants more than just a hookup. She wants things to be as romantic as possible, so she's not the kind of person who's going to be comfortable just Netflix and chilling. She'll be stubborn about this and is going to wait until she makes sure that she's able to really get to know someone.
If this is you, then you know that you just can't even with the whole casual thing. You probably don't even get why your generation seems to want to do anything but be in a real, actual, grown-up relationship. That sounds like an absolute dream to you and it's all that you want. You need to feel like things are romantic AF if you're going to, you know, chill with someone. Otherwise, you're going to wait until a better boyfriend prospect comes along.
10 Relationship: Pisces Woman
The Pisces woman is very similar to the Pisces man: she won't hook up with a guy if that's all that he's looking for. She's only going to take someone seriously if they prove that they like her for more than just Netflix and chilling.
If this is you, then you've probably had to explain to your best friends over and over again that you just can't do casual relationships. You think that the phrase "casual relationship" is a total oxymoron and just makes absolutely no sense. You don't want anything casual. In fact, you couldn't want that less. You care about getting to know a guy before sleeping with him, and you're going to be careful about who you date. That's something to be proud of for sure.
9 Relationship: Virgo Man
The Virgo man wants to be with someone for good, so he's not interested in anything less than forever. According to zodiac experts, the Virgo man wants someone who is as into being clean and neat as he is, so that's something that is very important to him when looking for a girlfriend.
Yup, Virgos are definitely known for being neat and tidy. It's almost a stereotype at this point, right? If you're a Virgo girl, you're probably kind of tired of hearing that you're so neat. But you probably are. When it comes to personality traits, the stars are usually right, and the Virgo qualities in particular are usually pretty spot-on. If you're dating a Virgo guy, you can rest assured that he wants something more serious with you than just hanging out in front of a movie.
8 Relationship: Virgo Woman
Both Virgo men and women are very similiar in that they don't want just a casual thing. The Virgo woman won't just jump into anything. She has to make sure that a guy is worth dating and make sure that she feels comfortable with him before starting a relationship.
This is definitely something to admire. In a society where hook-ups are seen as totally and completely normal and common, and even expected, you might feel kind of weird if you're a Virgo woman and you honestly aren't down with anything casual. You might get made fun of because people think that you're being a prude. You know the truth: you're not a prude, you just want to get to know someone before sleeping with them. That's not anything to be ashamed of.
7 Relationship: Aries Woman
The Aries woman really likes being loyal to one person. Therefore, it only makes sense that she's a good bet for a relationship, right? She's totally girlfriend material because she will fall in love and make that person her one and only.
The only thing to look out for about the Aries woman is that, according to zodiac experts, she can get jealous. As in super jealous. As in extremely jealous. Hmmm. If this is your sign, you might hate hearing that about yourself, and you might be going, "Who me?! I'm not jealous!" Hey, you might be a total green-eyed monster when you have a boyfriend. You just might have no idea that's what you're really like because it seems so normal and natural to you to act like that.
6 Relationship: Cancer Man
The Cancer man is more of a relationship person than someone who's just down to Netflix and chill. He would rather look for a girlfriend than just hook up or have a one-night stand.
This guy is also supposed to be in touch with his emotions, so that's something that you always look for in a potential boyfriend. But... he might be a bit too in touch with his emotions sometimes because apparently he can be on the shy and quiet side. But as long as you know that and you can get through to him and you guys figure out a way to communicate, that shouldn't be a problem. After all, once you find a good guy who can actually talk about his feelings, you don't want to let him go. That's the dream for sure.
5 Relationship: Libra Woman
Experts say that the Libra woman is really smart. If you're a Libra female, you're smiling from ear to ear right now, right?! Yeah, you totally should, because being smart is the best thing ever.
You would rather get to know someone and make sure that they're boyfriend material before you get physical with them. You're not going to jump into anything too soon. You don't care how cute a guy is or how nice he seems. You're still going to wait and that's just the way that it goes. It wouldn't even occur to you to Netflix and chill with someone before you think about whether or not you want to seriously date them. That's just the way that you are thanks to your zodiac sign.
4 Relationship: Gemini Woman
The Gemini woman is different from the Gemini man because while he's down to Netflix and chill any day of the week (or night, as the case might be), she's not into that at all. Nope. She would rather wait to sleep with someone until she knows that they're worth getting to know and she needs that comfort and trust.
For some people, wanting to feel a certain level of comfort before getting naked is kind of confusing since they figure that hooking up is truly no big deal. That's the way that it is today, especially for our generation. But there's nothing wrong with listening to yourself and waiting until you're comfortable, and if you're a Gemini woman, that's exactly what you're going to do.
3 Relationship: Scorpio Man
The Scorpio man wants to be intimate, sure, but he really wants a real connection, so it seems like he would want a real relationship. That only makes sense, right? Chances are, you feel the same way, and connections are really important to you. That's the only way to start a real relationship, anyway. Otherwise, you have nothing.
If you're dating a Scorpio guy and aren't sure how he feels about you, you can rest easy and know that he most likely wants a relationship. Guys who care about bonds and connections don't want to just hook up with anyone, and they don't want to hook up too early on, either. They care about getting to know someone and feeling comfortable just as much as you do, which is really nice to know.
2 Relationship: Scorpio Woman
The Scorpio woman is the same as the Scorpio man: according to experts, she isn't going to hook up on the very first date, so she would rather wait to find someone that she can be in an actual relationship with than just Netflix and chill with anyone. It's important to her to wait for all of the physical and intimate stuff.
The idea of whether or not you should have sex on the first date is a pretty hot topic. It's super controversial and there are people on either side of the issue. Some people think that it's no big deal and that women should do whatever they want. Others think that it's best to wait and not give that away too soon. You know, the whole "why would he buy the cow if you're giving away the milk for free" thing? Yeah, that's a super old-fashioned statement, but it's still pretty relevant today.
1 Relationship: Capricorn Woman
Unlike the Capricorn man, the Capricorn woman is totally into the idea of being in a relationship. Like some of the other zodiac signs, she carefully considers who she wants to date and spend time with. So she's much more of a girlfriend than a candidate for Netflix and chilling.
If you're a Capricorn woman, then this makes total sense to you. You could probably never even imagine hooking up with someone before getting to know them and before thinking about whether you want to be in a relationship with them. Honestly, every zodiac sign is fairly different and every person wants something different out of life and love. You should never be ashamed of being who you are and of wanting what you want. If you want to find true love, then stand by that, and you'll totally find what you're looking for (and, again, you can totally watch Netflix once you find the best boyfriend ever).
