The Relationship Comfort Zone

It takes a new couple seven and a half months for a relationship to reach “the comfort zone,” according to new research. A new study of 2,000 coupled-up Americans found that the biggest signs you’ve entered the comfort zone are allowing your significant other to take care of you when you’re sick, not wearing make-up and not shaving your legs or face. Surprisingly, the research also found that it takes eight months to share a Netflix/Hulu account, which is, amusingly, three months longer than it takes the average couple to shower at their significant other’s house.
