And we don’t mean the worst at checking messages, but the worst for checking their phones too often.
Straight to the numbers – 32% of women say that they would check their phone while on a date. A staggering 67% of guys say they’d do the same. Similar numbers apply to movie theaters, dinner, basically down the line. Although, when it goes to watching TV, women were in the majority when it came to checking the phone. Same for before bed and in the morning after waking up.
A lot of people actually do admit that they’re addicted to their phones. When asked what they’d give up before their phone, guys said they’d be willing to lose their car, new clothes, and even sleep. When asked the same question, women say they’d be willing to go without sex to keep their phone. They also said they’re willing to lose vacations, and would skip partying with their friends.
People say that they could go about an hour before feeling like they were missing something, and would check their devices.
What would you be willing to give up instead of your phone? Are you even “addicted” to your phone?
