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

25% of the survey respondents admitted to almost always using their iPhone at social gatherings; I'm guilty of this too. When I was on my annual girls only beach trip, it was the first year we all had smartphones and they were great for sharing photos, doing cool things on Facebook and calling boyfriends. But it just wasn't the same as it used to be. But we have to go with the flow of these modern times, to an extent.'The Lizard' & 4 More Terrible Kinds Of Kisses

I was dating a guy who was really into his phone and it became a huge problem. When I walked into the restaurant on our first date, I was excited that he was playing his scrabble app because was cute and smart! But when we were on our second, third and fourth date, his phone was on every date with us, I began to feel like I needed to leave him and his phone, alone, so they could have some quality time together. I mean, how could I ever compete with all of those Facebook notifications?

When your smartphone starts affecting your life under your new soft, 500 count white sheets, your phone addiction has definitely gone to far. 15% of the survey said they would rather go without sex than to not have their iPhone for the weekend! Are some of us moving away from physical contact to no contact because of our iPhones? It's all about keeping technology in balance in your own life and with your relationships.

But if you are in a physical relationship and there is potential for some nookie, please ignore your phone. The pictures of Aunt Susie's cute new kitten will still be on Facebook tomorrow. Get yourself ready for dating and love.

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. The grocery list, the kissing list (which I started after an inexperienced kissing session in 7th grade), the yearly to-do list, the 3-year big goal list, the bucket list, and my all-time favorite lists ...
