Why Your iPhone Is Ruining Your Relationships [EXPERT]
According to a recent survey, some people already bought the love of their lives.

I was surfing the Internet one day and found an interesting article. Over one thousand people on gazelle.com took a survey about how technology is affecting people's everyday lives and most importantly the impact of iPhones could have on their sex lives. 10 Signs You're Not Ready For Him To Pop The Question

I understand the love of technology and great social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pintrest and Stumble Upon. I even use them all in my life and they are critical in what I do. But when has technology and social media gone too far? Want to know how to attract a man away from his iPhone?

When asked what platform or device they could not live without, 65% of the survey participants chose their iPhone. Only 1 % chose they couldn't live without Facebook. I would choose my iPhone over Facebook any day, because without my iPhone, how else could I tell all my friends about getting contacted by someone from the Oprah Winfrey Network while I'm pumping gas? 9 Love Lessons I Learned From My Divorce

If my iPhone is out of sight for more than 10 minutes, I break into a cold sweat. Then that turns into a hot sweat while I'm running door to door looking for a neighbor that is kind enough to call my phone. But would I rather be on my phone or have a passionate lovemaking session? I get plenty of iPhone time, and I don't need more.

Smartphones and social media platforms have taken dating and relationships to a whole new level. It's like navigating unchartered waters in the Atlantic Ocean, and you're not really the adventurous pirate type. When you get used to using technology to your advantage, it can be a great tool and you will feel like a captain when it's smooth sailing. But when you use your phone too much, it can turn clear waters into a tidal wave, and it feels like all you've got is a dingy and no paddle.

It's never been so easy to reach out to a lover or potential lover and send a sexy text message like " I was thinking about that time you kissed me and…" But too much phone and technology can cause big problems. If you pay more attention to your Facebook notifications than your partner, there are going to be hurt feelings, no get togethers and breakups. Want to use texting the right way?

I’m a big fan of the list: The do list, that can be found on a double-folded piece of paper which I snagged from The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris.
