4 SIGNS AND BEHAVIOuRS OF PARTNER PHuBBING
1. YOuR PARTNER STARES AT THEIR PHONE WHILE YOu’RE TALKING Not only is this extremely rude, but also disrespectful to your relationship. While your partner may not hang onto and absorb every word you speak, it’s common courtesy (not to mention commonsensical) to put the phone away when you’re talking.
2. YOuR PARTNER TAKES OuT THEIR PHONE… EVERYWHERE Whether you’re out on a date, among your friends, or spending time with your family, if your partner uses their phone while others are speaking, they’re phubbing you. Being in the presence of others doesn’t negate the fact that they’re prioritizing their device over you and yours.
3. YOuR PARTNER ALWAYS FINDS AN ExCuSE TO POSTPONE THINGS He always starts off with a “Wait, I’m doing something…” when you ask something of him, especially with help around the house, in case you are married or living in.
4. YOuR PARTNER uSES THEIR PHONE IN BED Using the phone in bed – the most intimate of places – is a big no-no. And, in case you were wondering, you don’t ‘cancel each other out’ if you’re both tapping away.
