Technology is more important to our love lives than many of us think! Recently, Verizon conducted a study that explored how our use of technology affects how we celebrate on the biggest holidays of the year – Valentine’s Day! According to the survey, more than half of those surveyed communicate via technology on Valentine’s Day and the majority of folks (79%) will send some form of electronic wish rather than the old-fashioned paper card – I know, kind of sad.
And when it comes to romancing your Valentine, technology puts it all at our fingertips.
