Technology has led to great advancements in all areas of our lives. It helps us in our work and helps us to connect more easily to the world. Unfortunately technology also has the ability to distract us from the things and people that are important to our real lives. Here are five ways that technology may be interfering with, and killing, your relationship.
1. You check your phone at every notification
Having your sound notifications on for every app you use is going to keep you distracted. When you’re having a conversation, watching a movie on the couch, or dining out with your spouse, these sound notifications take your attention away from what you should be focused on and potentially make your partner feel less important. You don’t need to be alerted to everything happening on your phone the second it happens. Turn off sound notifications and check updates when you’re not involved in something important, such as quality time with your loved one.
2. You flirt with strangers via text
Flirting with people online might seem like a harmless, victimless way to get attention; but the truth is that it can hurt your relationship in a number of ways. Spending your time being intimate with someone who means nothing to you is time better spent being intimate with your spouse. If you are flirting online with strangers because you’re lacking something in your relationship, you should discuss those issues with your partner. If you are being emotionally and physically satisfied by someone online, you may not feel as much urgency to fix things with your spouse.
3. You spend hours a day playing video games
Spending hour after hour playing video games or watching TV can make your spouse feel neglected. It’s perfectly fine to have hobbies you love, but spending every moment of your free time involved in them might not be what’s best for your relationship. Make as much time for your spouse as you do for your hobbies. You can find something you enjoy doing together. Being involved in activities together and trying new things is a great way to bond as a couple.
4. You over-share on social media
The world doesn’t need to know all the ups and downs of your relationship. More importantly, your partner might not like the fact that you share all the details of what happens behind closed doors. This doesn’t mean you can’t share how excited you are when your spouse sends you flowers at work. Never complain about your spouse in public; that is an easy way to ruin your relationship. Telling friends, family, and even strangers how your partner disappointed you in an attempt to find sympathy will only make your partner feel ganged up on.
5. You stay up late tweeting while your partner goes to bed
If you’re staying up late to spend time online (or with video games or TV), you might not be spending as much time as your should in the bedroom. An important part of your relationship is the sexual one between you and your partner. You might want to stay up late and continue with whatever you’ve been doing all night, but taking a break to connect with your partner is much more fulfilling to your relationship. If you don’t want to sleep at the same time, that’s fine, but engage with your partner first.
Enjoying technology isn’t a bad thing, but make sure you don’t let it dominate all of your time and energy. Focus on your relationship and improving its quality while enjoying technology during your down time.
