Every relationship is different, so it will take each one a different time to reach their respective “comfort zone.” However, per the New York Post, according to a study of 2,000 couples conducted by Mattress Firm, it was found that it takes a new couple seven and a half months to reach this level of coziness.

And what constitutes as a “comfort zone?” According to the research, signs of reaching this stage include allowing your significant other to take care of you when you’re sick, not wearing make-up, and not shaving your legs or face.

And just around this time is when the couple will feel comfortable bringing up topics such as marriage and kids. And this all comes about a month after you are willing to introduce your significant other to your parents.

However, these all may not be the ultimate litmus test of comfort and security in a relationship, as the timeframes for the events mentioned above are shorter than sharing your streaming service account information.

According to the survey, it takes around eight months to be comfortable enough to share your login info.

It’s an interesting situation because it’s a rather unusual topic. It’s not something that comes to the forefront of a relationship, but when brought up, there is no easy answer.

You are paying for a Netflix and/or Hulu account, so when you share sensitive information like that, you are, in a way, splitting an asset with your significant other.

But what if things don’t work out and you eventually break-up? Your ex will still have the account information. It would be weird if he/she continued to use it after the split, but not out of the realm of possibility.

Changing the password would be the simple solution, but what if you are sharing the account with other people? And if you change it, your ex will notice if he/she tries to log in. Then there may be unneeded repercussions for that such as an overreaction.

Other results showed that it takes nearly five months before their comfortable showering at each other’s place, almost six months to get to the point where sitting in silence isn’t awkward, and nearly seven months to feel comfortable using the bathroom with the door open. Read more about it here.
