9 Must Have Relationship-Igniting Apps

Are you reading this after a long day’s work, lounging in bed with the love of your life?

If so, I promise I won’t feel bad if you stash the phone to take some time to talk in real life.

But if you’re still reading, you’re probably not alone — 70 percent of women in a recent survey said smartphones were interfering in their romantic relationship.

Image result for relationship smart phonesThe study surveyed 143 married or cohabiting heterosexual women and asked them about their phone, TV, computer and tablet habits. It also asked about how their partner used technology, if there was any conflict about using technology, and about their satisfaction with their relationship and life overall.

Forty percent of women said their men would get distracted by the TV during a conversation at least once a day, while a third said he would take out his phone in the middle of a conversation or during a meal together. A quarter said their partner would actually send texts or emails to another person while they were having a face-to-face conversation.
Smartphones don’t have to be the source of apathy and distance in your relationship, you know. We don’t really have to fight it, instead use it to enhance or revive our link with our partners.
