Have you ever broken up with your girl/boyfriend over a text message or mobile email? Have you spent most of the time during fancy restaurant dinner staring down at your smartphone screen instead of the people across your table? Is the time your phone screen spends unlocked starting to equal your TV time?...

And yet another one to add to the list of "dangerous addictions" after they came (from older to newer):
The TV addcition
The computer addiction
The game addiction
The internet addiction
And the new "mobile addiction"...

How we keep having relationships in the world;
Find someone with the same interests. 1 game addict + another game addict = best thing ever.

Rude and uncouth is rude and uncouth - regardless of the medium.

Fu*k. We don't care. Geeks or Nerds like us never engage in a relationship. We are Forever Alone Guys.

I have to admit I broke up with my girlfriend over a text message. she was avoiding me (personally and calls) every time (everything just went downhill), so I had no other option to text her and get done with it.
In other hand, when I meet with people at dinner or social events, I HATE when they stare at the phone the whole time, the same when I go to see a movie... (It's ok if you just check the phone and put it away, but c'mon, is very rude to text and "having a conversation" with someone right in front of you)
People are not polite anymore, I just put the device in silence and be social or enjoy the show.
