Fighting 2.0: Top 10 Fights Over Technology Between Couples
Do you miss the era when couples used to argue over who did the crossword puzzle in the newspaper first, or who moved the rabbit ears and screwed up the reception after you rushed home in your Datsun to watch “Knots Landing”?
Technology has evolved tremendously in recent decades. . . and not surprisingly, so have fights between couples.
Today, sites like Facebook and Twitter have created a more visible, public and complex environment for maintaining relationships, and texting has changed the way we communicate with our friends, family, and significant others.
While sometimes, the newly developed technologies help our relationships (like having a long-distance relationship, or online-dating), oftentimes, the same technology is the basis for arguments between couples.
The website Mashable.com put together this list of tech arguments that couples commonly go through.
Top 10 Tech Fights Couples Have:
#1.) Prematurely deleting DVR’d shows.
#2.) Not following or friending on Twitter after you’ve been dating for a while.
