Couples Love Their Mobile Phones
from the can't-get-away dept
It’s studies like this that make us single folks cynical concerning our more “attached” friends. A new study has shown that one-third of couples with mobile phones call or text message each other more than 10 times a day. Of course, texting and talking are quite different – so if the majority of that is via text then I don’t think it’s that surprising. However, they also found that over 80% contact their significant other within minutes of parting in the morning to “update” them on their journey to work (gag reflex, please). Interestingly, while plenty will use the phone to nag their partner about something they forgot to do, not as many will call to say they’re staying for an extra drink after work (or they might call and lie about traffic, when they’re really staying for an extra drink).
