The ultimate list of romantic comedies to netflix party with your girlfriends

7 Rom Coms To 'Netflix Party' With Your Besties

As movie theaters begin to open, it still, unfortunately, isn't the safest to go out right now. Thankfully, there are other ways we can safely spend time with our friends, such as the new web extension, Netflix Party. Netflix Party is also only available on Google Chrome through laptops and desktops. It works by installing the extension, opening a Netflix video, whether it's a tv show or movie, creating a Netflix Party and joining a Netflix Party.

Through Netflix Party, you can watch with your friends from afar, and there is also a little chat window where everyone can chat throughout the movie. Luckily, Netflix has recently put out a lot of different movies and tv shows to help us cure boredom while in quarantine.

The one thing that I am mostly missing about pre-social distancing times before the pandemic is girls' nights. I have the ultimate list of romantic comedies to cue up your Netflix with to have the ultimate Netflix Party while not spreading COVID-19 with your girls.

1. Clueless

A 90s cult classic starring Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd, this will have you and your girls saying "as if" to any other movie options.

2. He’s Just Not That Into You

There's a star studded cast that includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Ginnifer Goodwin, Bradley Cooper and Scarlett Johansson (just to name a few), and the plot stays interesting with the perfect mix of romance and comedy. This movie is especially good to watch with others because it has a little something for everyone.

3. Hitch

This romantic comedy stars Will Smith and Kevin James where Will Smith tries to help Kevin James find love. One of my favorite scenes is Kevin James dancing to Usher's Yeah! In front of Will Smith.

4. Failure to Launch

This movie is another star-studded movie with Matthew McConaughey, Zoey Deschanel and Sarah Jessica Parker. This movie stars a few older couple in their mid-30s but still is enjoyable for any age! Plus, Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker have amazing on screen chemistry, and Matthew McConaughey makes a great romantic comedy lead, how to lose a guy in 10 days anyone?

5. Someone Great

The Netflix original that made truth hurts rise to fame, this movie stars Gina Rodrugiez and is all about relying on friendship during a breakup and is highly relatable to any girl in her 20s.

6. The Knight Before Christmas

If you and your girls need a little Christmas feeling, this holiday romantic comedy is great to watch and stars Vanessa Hudgens.

7. Always Be My Maybe

If you love a good coming back together, long lost childhood love plot, this movie is awesome and stars two Asian leads.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

Bobbie Hall

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Tai Adaya

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

The 2020 presidential election is coming up fast and it's important now more than ever to know the resources available to voters.
