Remember when you’d guess how long it would take to become a couple based on the number of DATES you went on?

How 2003!

A new study in the Daily Mail has determined how long it takes to go from meeting someone to becoming a couple based on how you communicate today!

The study found it takes an average of 163 text messages, 70 Facebook messages, 37 eMails and 30 “old-fashioned” phone calls to become a couple.

For people under 25, all of that happens in just 24 DAYS!

As we get older, it takes longer…up to two-and-a-half months for people over 55.

The study also found people exchange 224 tweets before they become a couple, which might seem high…but if you’re both on Twitter, maybe you’ll tweet back and forth a lot.

What’s your favorite way to “connect” with potential dates/mates?
