Love, as the saying goes, means never having to say you're sorry. Or, apparently, ever having to tell the truth. We crunched the numbers, and it turns out that couples lie to each other, just, all the time, about everything. Some of the more weirdly common fibs include ...
"Of Course I Haven't Watched The New Episode, I Was Waiting for You!"
Whether you're Netflix-and-chilling or Netflix-and-falling-asleep-on-the-couch-because-you're-over-30-and-you've-got-work-the-next-day, watching a beloved television program with your significant other is a sacred bond, an act shot through with trust and commitment. Which is a serious bummer, because just under half of the civilized world has admitted to "Netflix cheating" on their partner. That is, secretly watching the next episode of a show you were supposed to be watching together. That's a threefold increase from 2013, an alarming sign of civilization's rapid decline.
An astounding 81% of Cheaty McCheatersons have done it repeatedly, with almost 44% saying it's basically a habit. A full 60% said they'd do it more if they could, because there are no depths to which humanity can't sink. Approximately half -- 46%, in fact, exactly the same number who say they've cheated -- don't think it's that big a deal, because of course they wouldn't.
But, because I'm not entirely without mercy, here's a word of warning to all the morally bankrupt demon spawn sneaking episodes of Orange Is The New Black on the down low: Don't try to pull that shit in Hong Kong. Seriously, 40% of respondents there said Netflix cheating is worse than having an actual affair.
