It’s not you, it’s her phone. Confirming suspicions that we are slowly becoming more obsessed with our phones than each other, a new study released Wednesday shows that 57 percent of U.S. women would rather give up sex for a week than their mobile phones. The survey, released by the Internet security and optimization company AVG Technologies, studied 4,000 women and their daily interaction with technology. The poll included females from the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, and Brazil. Among that group, U.S. women ranked the highest in those who claimed they use social networking sites to find love connections.
