Thirty percent of millennials won't move forward with a relationship if you're not on the same page about this...
If you’ve ever wondered how your TV-watching habits affect your love life, we now have some insight.
Xfinity surveyed 1,935 adults, ages 25-49, to see if their time spent together in front of the boob tube affects their IRL relationships. And in a short answer: yes. They might even prevent a new relationship from blossoming.
Thirty percent of millennials actually factor in someone’s TV preferences when deciding whether to date them. Consider that when you update your Tinder bio. Here’s what else Xfinity found.
- 66 percent of couples say watching TV together strengthens their bond. Up that to 75 percent for millennials, a.k.a the generation that introduced 'Netflix and chill' to the world.
- 30 percent of couples have actually bailed on plans so they could watch a show together. No shame—double date with Mindy and Danny or Rachel and Ross (for the re-watchers) trumps date night with your obnoxious neighbs.
- 50 percent of couples confess they’ve cheated, as in watched the next episode without their partner. (Note: If you have TV trust issues, you can prevent that infidelity with a set of rings. Nothing, and we mean nothing, says commitment like waiting for your S.O. to watch the next Game of Thrones.)
In conclusion, if you’re striking out a lot or you can’t seem to find that *spark*, take another scroll through the channels, and you might just find what you’re looking for.
