It’s Been a Long Time

Picture this: when meeting at the park and setting up the date the hottie tells you that “it has been a long time”. You jokingly say, “ it’s been a long time since you were at the park too,”. They move in close…talk is already then joking about hints of sex…


         Question:

Why do you think “It’s been a long time” has become such a well-known sexual innuendo?

@CuriousHat,
Like any popular coinage, the more it's used, the more people will associate it with one thing.

Same with Netflix and chill.

For my age group, “It’s been a long time “ = so don’t rush me.

What makes you think it is? It's what someone might say at a restaurant when the server brings out the meal you ordered an hour ago. Or someone asks when you last bought a new car. Or when you're waiting for your chess opponent to decide on his next move. I don't think there's anything to your premise. As far as your example goes, it's sort of natural for people on a date to give a sexual inflection to rather neutral statements. It can actually get tiresome.
