Phone dating

When they don’t live up to our projected image we become dismissive and begin looking elsewhere.

Americans are picky when it comes to dating, particularly those who have i Phones, according to a recent survey of more than 5,500 singletons aged 18 and over by dating site

The survey, which was released ahead of the 10th anniversary of Apple’s i Phone this week, found that i Phone owners are 21 times more likely to judge others negatively for having an Android, while those who have an Android are 15 times more likely to judge others negatively for having an i Phone.

Texting may be more efficient, and there are times when efficiency serves our purpose, but in the area of dating, mating, sex, and love, too much texting and too little direct contact can undermine our deepest desires.

The reason is simple and straight forward, but we often fail to understand these facts of life:• Human connection requires that we use all our senses.

We need to see each other, hear each other, touch each other, taste each other, and yes, smell each other.• Our conscious mind may think we’re connecting when we text our feelings in words, but our bodies, spirits, and souls know we’re missing vital elements.

In her book, Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do, and Become, Barbara L. D., says “You use the phone, email, and increasingly texts or Facebook, and it’s important to do so.

Interestingly, I’ve found that many people, particularly men, seem to find it easier to talk on the phone about these issues than talking in person.

Texting is a poor substitute for talking when we reach stage four and are wanting real, lasting love.

That may be pitiful commentary, but we’re also looking for compatibility in the non-materialistic: political viewpoints, religious convictions, and fundamental ethical values.” One explanation for the i Phone users snooty approach to dating: i Phone users earn higher incomes than Android users, according to research group Com Score.

Don’t miss: How your i Phone could save your life While Android and i Phone users would rather date someone with their taste in gadgets, they do agree on some things when it comes to first dates.
