When you go to the local store to buy some groceries, while you commute every day heading your job, while you eat your dinner at home after a long day, while you are chilling with your friends in the pub during the weekend, when you are waiting at the bus stop, even when you are going for a nice walk down the street.
Our smartphones are not just phones anymore. We use them to match people, we use them to connect ourselves with a potential mate or someone who we feel the chemistry with. There are countless of applications that can help us to meet people. We all know them and we know how they work.
Hundreds of profile pics, brief descriptions, distance and age are some of the criteria that we use to decide if we fancy the person or not. It seems simple, you just need to like the picture to let that person know that you are interested. But have you ever thought about the amount of time that you waste trying to match someone?
The more you disconnect from real life and the present, the more you will start feeling apart or begin thinking that you need your phone to connect. Thats a fact. Those apps are here to help you but not to isolate you.
Can you remember the smell of the air when you went to the grocery shop? Can you remember the taste of the meal you had while swiping right? Could you say that the pub was noisy while being with your friends? And, how was the weather when you went for a walk and looked at your phone instead of fully living that moment? If you don’t have an answer you are not living the present as much as you could.
One of the main things that prevents you fully experiencing the life you are living is overusing your phone. Of course there are things that need to be done and checked with a device but there are other things that can be done by yourself. The issue is that nowadays we believe that we need the help of an online app to make sure that we will meet a special person.
Think about the amount of time you spend trying to find someone to finally meet and then think about how much time you spend with that person on the first date. If it is worthy just keep going, if not you might consider start living your life without using a screen.
