Do you think love is blind and that online dating profile photos may not matter?
What’s that you ask? Well, we’ve heard of the juice fasts, the fruit and vegetable fasts, the liquid fasts, the “I am not gonna eat any food” fasts… but in this day and age, it may be relevant to consider a technology fast. “But, I cannot LIVE without my iPhone, Galaxy, Blackberry, email, or fill in device of your choice” you cry out.

Although AT&T once boasted being the first carrier to have access to the coveted iPhone, those days are long gone. Now they're not even run-of-the-mill; they straight-up suck. But what does this mean for your romantic relationship? Does your cell phone carrier affect it?

It's a dreary weekday morning. You're on your way to Starbucks to get your Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte, and while you're waiting in line, you start chatting it up with a cute guy in front of you. He's hilarious and you guys are really hitting it off. Before he leaves, he asks for your number. As you start giving it to him, he pulls out an old flip phone.
