Which way is the dipole pointing on CHCl2? I don't understand why this molecule experiences dipole-dipole attraction. Thanks

It experiences a dipole moment because the Cl's and H's are next to each other and so there is a dipole moment pointing from the H to the C and from the C to the Cl. So, therefore, the dipole moments add in both directions so the dipole moment points from the H to the Cl.
