Today on Dear Sybersue I discuss the topic: If You Want to Date More Take Off Your Headphones and Get Off Your Phone!
Many men and women are complaining that they never meet anyone and how difficult dating is today. One of the biggest problems is that people are so plugged into their social media devices. There is so little face to face interaction or human connection these days.
Everyone is walking with their heads down staring at their phones and not looking up until they literally bump into someone because they are not paying attention. I have seen people almost get hit by cars while they are walking and texting on their phones and don’t even get me going about the people who text while they drive!
My husband’s company has a no phone policy in their meetings which is a great thing! It forces everyone to pay attention and make eye contact with whoever is speaking.
“Your eyes are the window to your soul.” Looking into someone’s eyes can tell you so much about them. You are missing out on meeting some interesting people if you are always looking down. Hey, I love my phone just as much as the next person but I know when to put it away and acknowledge my surroundings.
If you want to eventually meet your life partner you should be making an effort to socialize. Take your headphones off, put down your phone and talk to people when you are out! Make eye contact and smile. You don’t have to date everyone you say hello to, but get in the habit of being friendly on a regular basis. You may be surprised at the results!
What do you think? Are you guilty of being on your phone all the time even when you’re out with friends for the evening? Are social media sites like Instagram an addiction for you?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject. I will always take time to answer you back. Please watch the video above and leave your comments below! Thank you.
