I know that telling you to put down your phone is like telling you to chop off your left arm . . . but you REALLY should do it once in a while.

A new study found that the key to a successful relationship is putting down your phone and doing two things instead: Spending quality time face-to-face . . . and being affectionate.

The researchers say, quote, “No amount of texting can compensate for a lack of either of those factors.”

But here’s the problem. Most of us are tighter with our phones than our partners.

Another survey just found that 53% of people admit that they spend more time on their phone than with their significant other . . . and two-thirds of us get distracted by our phones in the middle of conversations.
