ANDREW FENTON SOLVES YOUR DAILY DILEMMAS
QMy boyfriend is always on his iphone, talking, texting, surfing the web even in bed. It’s ruining our relationship – what can I do? VF, Nailsworth.
AGod, it’s annoying isn’t it? It’s like having a conversation with someone at a party and you see their eyes searching the room over your shoulder looking for someone more interesting to talk to (at least, I assume that’s what it’s like – that’s obviously never happened me). Apart from ruining your relationship, he may be unaware that his tech use is also rewiring his neural pathways and he’ll end up constantly distracted and unable to think deeply about anything. So sooner or later he’s going to join Bob Katter’s Australia Party. More importantly, people with short attention spans who are constantly searching for new interests and excitement are unlikely to remain faithful – not when there’s a more enticing prospect over the horizon. Ditch him before he ditches you. I suggest sending him a text: “Srsly, U R gettin annoying. U R a jrk. Thx 4 nothing…let’s Br8k up. LOL.” Send your questions to saweek[email protected] adv.newsltd.com.au Touch the stories that touch you. Get our ipad app in the itunes store. adelaidenow.com.au/ipad
