Cell dating number phone single
For personal calls, there was always the home phone.
Now many people are down to just one: their cell phone. It's all of these things." Los Angeles-based Burner is making it so you can have a phone number for each of your identities.
Burner, the app, wants to turn that idea of a discardable phone number into a positive business tool — and a way to safeguard yourself when dating.
Carter and Cohn first hit on the idea in 2012 when they were building a different app that could show when people were available to talk.
Don’t give your social media accounts out or anything that can trace them back to you. What do you do if they give you their number and ask you to call them or text them? I will admit I used to, but I just don’t feel comfortable doing it because I’ve had some weirdos I didn’t want to talk to keep texting and calling even after months of not talking.
To me, my number is for those I want to interact with and don’t mind continuing to interact with.
While this behavior was related to FOMO (fear of missing out), taking it a step further, 25 percent of singles 21-26 keep their phones in bed with them and over 2/3 of singles keep their mobile phones within at least an arm's reach of their bed.
It's alarming that this so-called addiction results in 16 percent of singles actually texting while having sex.
"More and more stuff is just happening on one’s phone," Cohn said. Cohn and his co-founder Will Carter want to turn the phone number into a tool for more than just receiving calls and texts.While the study didn't dig deeper to determine if single sent text messages during foreplay or in the afterglow of lovemaking, one thing is for sure; the mobile phone is the number one accessory of choice.While this news shouldn't be alarming, I dug a little deeper and read that last year, the reported on this trend, and there's actually a name for this mobile phone anxiety disorder -- Nomophobia.Has the cell phone replaced the teddy bear to keep singles warm at night?Apparently so, as the need to sleep with or near your mobile phone is on the rise.
