How Your iPhone Will Ruin Your Dating Life

A study shows that we can’t live without our iPhones! How is this affecting our dating life? Some reasons why your addiction to technology may keep you single.

Get Off Your PhonePut down your iPhones! They may just be ruining your dating life.

I’ve talked about my love for my iPhone. Asides from its pretty interface (I’m all about pretty things) it saves my life! I’m not even being dramatic. If I didn’t have an iPhone, I wouldn’t have an alarm. I would wake up at noon every day cause I’m a sleepy head, miss out on life and probably gain weight because I wouldn’t leave my bed. I wouldn’t be able to FaceTime with my niece, which would kill me slowly. And I may need to go to rehab for my Candy Crush addiction. #Obsessed.

I’m not alone. surveyed over one thousand people to study how technology is affecting our lives and romantic relationships. Turns out that 65% of participants rather have their iPhone handy than any other device. They couldn’t live without it. Also, most of us rather spend quality time with our iPhone than connecting with loved ones. 58% of respondents reported that they are usually on their iPhone while socializing or eating a meal with others. Nearly 4% reported using their iPhone during sex. Talk about a buzz kill!

So, yes, we are all obsessed with our iPhones. No big deal, right? Wrong! This tech distraction affects our dating life. I can’t count the times I’ve been at a bar playing with my iPhone. Most men do not approach me. They rarely approach a woman whose nose is buried in a gadget. Because men believe the following:

  • They think you’re waiting for someone, specifically a man.
  • They think you don’t want to be bothered.
  • They think you’re uncomfortable with being alone.
  • They think you’re insecure.

In that moment, you may miss out on meeting a great man. Besides, if you’re on your iPhone when socializing, you’re not really socializing. You’re screaming “leave me alone!”  And I know you don’t mean that. Like me, you just don’t know how to part from it. Let’s promise to put our iPhones to the side and chat up a pretty person instead.
