Online dating doesn't carry the same stigmas that it used to. But are we spending more time swiping right than loving each other?
Social media is meant to connect us, build our networks, and enhance our social life, right? It may be designed to, but in reality, it’s cutting out real-life human interaction.
Phones are like opinions, everyone has one, and for most people it would be nearly impossible to function without them.
Could it be that we have managed to invent the electronic enemy of love? It is increasingly becoming apparent that we are feeling 'phone snubbed' by our partners, be it romantic or familial.
Being hyper-connected to your phone was found to be correlated with reduced levels of relationship satisfaction, falling out of love, an increased tendency to be less satisfied with life overall, and higher depression rates.
Nothing kills a romantic night faster than your significant other constantly checking his or her phone. No, not kidding. There is science to back it up.
