For better or worse, cell phone technology continues to drastically change the way we do things and dating is far from immune. It used to be a guy got your number, then had to make that first nervous call to ask for a date. Now you’re more likely to trade a few text messages before a meet up.
And just as you’ve suspected, mobile technology makes it easier for men to play the game and really get over. When it comes to guys managing multiple women, phones really are smart. It was an inevitable development. Years ago your average player owned a small stack of paper, bound with glue, called a black book. While it allowed men to record details on his sexual exploits, it was an extraneous accessory that anyone could be privy to with a glance.
Then came the modern smartphone. A veritable database of contacts where a player can keep all your contact info, notes, pictures, along with a list of who you know thanks to social networks. Since its main function is for calling, having a smartphone doesn’t raise any red flags.
But any guy who’s got caught out there knows that smartphones aren’t perfect. You may not qualify yourself a tech-wizard, but you know how to track down information when you suspect something’s amiss. Between the long call logs, text messages, email and photos on a phone, smartphones can be incredibly incriminating.
