Exchanging apartment keys. Meeting the parents. Changing your Facebook status. We all know these things are typically good signs that your relationship is moving in the right direction. But there may actually be another big indicator that you and your boo are cruising right into relationship bliss. Yes, friends, Netflix might have just discovered a big green flag when it comes to relationships: sharing your Netflix password.
According to a recent study conducted by the online streaming service, 51 percent of respondents feel that sharing their Netflix account deets is a “very big step toward a ‘serious relationship.’” A majority also said they tend to wait until they are exclusively dating to do so.
The study also found that couples who stream together could possibly experience positive effects on their relationship. In fact, 58 percent of people surveyed said they bond with their significant other over Netflix, while 30 percent said they like learning new things about their boo through watching shows together. Who knew that some actual “Netflix and Chill” time could be a good thing?
So if you’re still stuck on how to show your sweetie some love this Valentine’s Day, sharing your Netflix password might be the perfect way to show them you care.
In the meantime, here is some more romantic insight from Netflix for you to enjoy.
