6 Ways Your Netflix History Reveals Your Love Life

Watching Netflix on tablet

If you haven't noticed by now, Netflix monitors your past movie selections and suggests what you should watch next. Your Netflix history can reveal a lot about your personality and even how you act in love! So what does your movie-watching history show about your love life? Grab the popcorn and find out what your fairy tale ending looks like.

Spy Action and Non-Stop Adventure Movies

Your Netflix history: The Bourne Identity, Inglourious Basterds, Mission Impossible

Your love personality: Candy hearts and stuffed animals to sweep you off your feet? Heck no! You love a good thrill and your ideal first date would involve a day of paragliding that ended with a strong glass of bourbon on the rocks. Chemistry with your partner is a must, as you have considerably high mojo. You are seduced by weekend trips that involve extreme sports and tears (the good kind), and you would be blown away if your partner showed up at your house on a motorcycle with two tickets to a rodeo and a hip flask of your favorite drink. So saddle up! You are always looking for the next rip-roaring adventure with your love!

Feel-Good Movies From the 80s and 90s

Your Netflix history: Mrs. Doubtfire, Big, Father of the Bride

Your love personality: Save the drama for your mama. As an easy-going kind of person, you seek uncomplicated love and drama kings or queens are not your style. There is nothing you enjoy more than spending the afternoon in your lazy chair with your lover and a bag of potato chips. You are often dubbed as being basic, but that is far from the truth. You are creative, and like to surprise your partner with things like handwritten love poems. Being a true romantic, you value honesty. It is the simple pleasures of life, like a warm Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie, that really make your heart melt.

Steamy Thrillers

Your Netflix history: Wild Things, Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction

Your love personality: Love to you is like a Rubik's Cube covered in chocolate. You like it sweet and challenging and you look for a partner who is seductive and sultry. Loyalty is not always your strong suit, but you believe in true love, and when you do find your soulmate, you are more inclined to settle down. You need a partner who is willing to role-play, and you expect lots of chemistry in a relationship. Your ideal date would involve apple martinis, front row tickets to a burlesque show, and then some, ahem.. heavy petting.

Classic Tearjerkers

Your Netflix history: My Girl, City of Angels, Ghost

Your love personality: Simply put, you feel everything. You are an extremely intuitive human being and let your heart make most of your decisions, proudly wearing your heart on your sleeve. Tearjerkers will throw you into fits of tears and so will a sappy Sara McLachlan song. You are incredibly sensitive in love. A sweet night of lovemaking is known to make you cry. The last person you dated broke your heart and you may be scared to love again. Don't let love get ya down. Your soulmate is out there. After you find him, you can both prove to the world that true love doesn't just exist in fairy tales. Awwww.

Screwball Comedies

Your Netflix history: It Happened One Night, Some like it Hot, Shall We Dance

Your love personality: Cliché romance stories? Sorry, those aren't for you. You are practical, worldly and have an incredibly sharp sense of humor. You need a partner who is smart enough to keep up with your wit. Your ideal partner can talk about politics over a few Old Fashioned cocktails. Like screwball comedies, you are a perfect blend of sophistication and humor. For you, true love is multi-faceted and should be approached with a rational mind. Internet dating, the bar scene, and random hookups are not your style. You would much rather find your mate at a poetry slam, indie cafe, or perusing through the aisles of your favorite bookstore.

B-Horror Movies

Your Netflix history: The Blob, Tremors, Little Shop of Horrors

Your love Personality: You are nerdy and slightly awkward in love. This makes you irresistible to the opposite sex. You attract people who are significantly older than you and have been known to seduce a person of authority or two. You absolutely believe in true love, and when you fall in love, you fall hard. It may take you a while to get over a breakup. You are looking for someone to discuss all the reasons that make life so peculiar. Your fantasy date would involve attending the Rocky Horror Picture Show and dressing up with your partner as your favorite cast member. Cue the dramatic music, horror movies don't scare you, and neither does falling in love!

Netflix and Long Walks to the Kitchen Pantry

Whether you are a Don Juan Demarco in love, or find yourself alone crying with a carton of ice cream to Bridget Jones's Diary, you can look at Netflix like an oracle of love. Netflix also allows you to create up to five user profiles on a single account. That means you are free to develop five alter-egos in love. Who says you can't experiment a little with your happily-ever-after? Cue the lights, cue the love, cue the action!
