What Is Netflix’s Love Hard About?
According to the Netflix trailer, Love Hard tells the story of Los Angeles-based Natalie Bauer (Dobrev). She regularly finds dates online. However, she has been unlucky in love many times. Turns out, she has taken all of these negative experiences and has figured out a way to pick a foolproof way of finding a date. That is because nothing is going to stop her from meeting her soul mate!
With all of these mistakes, she now feels completely equipped to try again. Or is she? This time, she uses an app Natalie makes sure that the guy is who he says he is. Moreover, he is pretty perfect. So, why not fly to New York City and surprise him during the Christmas holidays.
Unfortunately, she has been catfished! Josh (Yang) was the guy she was talking to. However, he insists that he can get her hooked up with Tag (Barnet) the guy Natalie thought she was talking to.
Turns out, Natalie and Tag have some chemistry. But, Tag’s idea of dating is extreme sports. Natalie is not necessarily into bobsledding or rock climbing. Yet, she and Tag have some moments. She is mostly happy here.
Josh then says something does make Natalie step back. Does she really know what love is? Does she know what she really wants?
