Relationships Don’t Fall Apart; They Fade Away Slowly Like This
You’re always on your phones or laptops
Those damn devices. They’re always calling for your attention. You’ve got them all linked up to each other, such that every notification your phone gets, your smart watch, tablet, and laptop all get it, too. It’s like the outside world is trying to break into your home. It won’t cut you a break. Or, perhaps you don’t take a break from screen time. Either way, you and your partner say you’ll watch a movie together, but you’re both on your phones. So you aren’t experiencing the film together, and experiencing new stimuli together is actually good for your bond.
