I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
There seems to be a global epidemic on the rise and it's Netflix Cheating. You can sit there and pretend you have no idea what I am talking about, but you know. Maybe you're a serial cheater or you've only thought about cheating, but either way you know the struggle is real. For the few of you out there who claim to not understand, I'll break it down. You and your significant other (or whoever) start watching a show on Netflix together and promise to not watch more episodes without yourself. However, your schedules don't always a line and you find yourself with time to sit in front of Netflix while he or she is at work. Or sleeping in bed next to you while you are wide awake. You stare at your "continue watching" queue debating if you should watch without them. Some of you are strong enough to click away, but 46% of streaming couples admit to cheating.
Now I fully admit that I have thought about cheating on my husband with the most recent season of The Fall. Between work schedules and kids activities we just haven't had time to binge watch together, and I've been tempted to start without him. Luckily, there are plenty of others shows I need to catch up on to distract me, so I've been able to hold out. For now. I am not sure how much longer my will power will last though.
Are you guilty of Netflix cheating on your streaming partner? Which shows tempt you the most?
