*Singing* Anything you can do I can do better… I can do anything better than you…*
In the timeless battle of men vs women, a new study finds that one definitely out-obsesses over their smartphones and gadgets more than the other.
According to new research commissioned by online smartphone retailer Dialaphone, 52% of married women check their smart phones within 10 minutes of waking up. In fact 29% look at their phone before they even bother to look at their partner. However, it seems men prefer to look at their partners instead, with only 18% reaching for their phones straight away.
Personally, I’ve been in a few relationships where one or two minor arguments arguments about inappropriate smartphone use has challenged communications within the relationship. But on the other hand, I’m the same girl that manages to check her email during middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks. In this new age of technology, social media and its affects on interpersonal relationships how much is smartphone use is too much?
Do you believe that women are more obsessive with their smartphone use than men? Do you have any “smartphone” use rules? Sound Off in the comment section below…
I really do believe women are more obsessed with their smartphones. Now about relationships and smartphones, I think that many relationships can be -will be- are destroyed thanks to smartphones. Like who do you need to see on your phone before you look at all this in the morning? haha
I kinda agree with Sharon. My boyfriend is extremely jealous of the fact that Im on my smartphone a lot. (okay maybe it's too much. Lol) We've even got into arguments about it – smartphones & social media (aka relationship killers). But I do think that most guys try to hide their smartphone actions a little better than women and are actually on their phones more than us.
My girlfriend is always going thru my phone. She's more obsessed with my smartphone than I am. ROTFL
There are some crazy females out there but I think that men & women can be equally obsessive over their phones.
I think that women are such multi taskers that it leads us to check the phone or email too much! My husband focuses on fewer things at a time just because that is how he works.
