I think you hit the nail on the head there. Because these days, even the young people who would say they are not one to sit by the phone, sort of are. The phone is coming with them now. There is no more excuse of having a life. If you’re into the person you’re dating, you’re always waiting for that text. And a sudden unexplained stop hurts more because the distraction has been taken away. You can be out with friends and waiting at the same time. Multitasking is a grand thing isn’t it?
