ZOPA research has found that Brits are more likely to share information about their finances with their partner than their Netflix password.
A survey of 2,000 adults by the peer-to-peer lender found that 47 per cent of respondents felt more comfortable revealing details about their bank accounts with their partner than their most intimate secret, while the same percentage would prefer to give an insight into their finances over their Netflix password.
When it comes to sharing costs, almost half of Brits would consider “going Dutch”, with 43 per cent of daters believing the cost of a date should be split down the middle.
Continuing with the theme of food, Zopa found that 63 per cent of people would share their meal with their other half, compared to 46 per cent who would share with friends and 56 per cent with family.
And proving that you should absolutely never go near a co-workers’ lunch in the shared fridge, only 21 per cent said they would share food with a colleague.
Zopa also found that 49 per cent of adults said they would not share a towel and even more – 68 per cent – said they would not share socks. Thankfully, a huge 78 per cent said they would not share a toothbrush with their partner.
“A little openness can go a long way, and it’s encouraging to see that Brits are willing to have financial discussions with their other half,” Clare Gambardella, chief customer officer at Zopa said.
“Zopa is all about sharing as we match people looking to invest money with people who are looking to borrow. This way everyone gets a better deal”.
