We see you out there, citizens of the Internet, all you singles trying to #Netflixandchill your way to a long-term relationship. If #Netflixandchill is how you snag a bae, then #HGTVandchill is what happens when you graduate into adulting together. The folks at ATTN: coined this idea and we're totally on board.
