Hate it when your partner uses their phone during a conversation? Often feel like you’re spending more time with your devices than with each other?
Your Relationship Is Phubbed is a wake-up call to how smartphones and devices are f’king up your relationships.
There’s a lot of good relationship advice for couples out there. But most of it goes out the window when you’re being phubbed in the face, ghosted on Facebook, or dragged aside and demanded to smile for Yet. Another. Damn. Relfie. #couplegoals.
Smartphones and social media bring a whole new challenge to authentic and loving relationships. They destroy communication and connection, cripple intimacy and sex, magnify jealousy and resentment, and cause lots of other toxic problems like making any time you spend alone with your partner feel like you might as well be on different planets.
The common advice for couples is to cut down. Keep phones out of the bedroom. Go on a digital vacation. Disconnect.
But time and time again, this advice fails. We’re in relationships with our smartphones, and by denying that fact you only increase the itchy fingers and temptation and make things significantly worse.
But if you understand what’s really going on and seize control, you’ll see you don’t need to surrender your beloved electronic companions to enjoy healthy and passionate relationships.
