Your partner, or your phone?
MEN AND WOMEN in the UK
are often fonder of their mobile phones than their partners, according to
European research by Swiss International Air Lines.
Forty percent of Britons surveyed
admitted they are often fighting a losing battle when it comes to partners
paying more attention to their gadgets. Even more (84%) think people don't
connect like they used to when they are face-to-face because of the pull of the
internet and easy access communications on-the-go.
Other findings show:
*Germans are the most
worried that digital media has led to more superficial relationships. They are
also the most upset when it comes to being ignored in favour of a mobile phone.
*The Spanish are the worst
when it comes to ignoring their partners often in favour of their phones. More
than half of Spaniards think nothing of checking their phone while in
conversation with others.
*French are the least
concerned about eye contact during a conversation.
