Is Sharing a Netflix Account the New Relationship Barometer?

February 9th, 2016 Posted in Offbeat News

netflixRemember the good old days, when the big sign your relationship was serious was when you combined your DVD collections?  It looks like that’s evolved.

A new survey by Netflix found 51% of people now say a great sign their relationship is serious is . . . when they share their Netflix password.

Why is it such a big deal?  It gives the other person a wide open look at everything you’ve ever watched . . . AND it lets their tastes influence what Netflix recommends.

On that note, 17% of people say they wouldn’t share their Netflix password until they were engaged.  “Waiting until marriage” SURE does have a different definition in 2016 than it used to.

The survey also found 25% of people find someone more attractive if they have similar tastes in TV and movies, and 65% of couples have negotiations over what shows to binge watch.
