What I miss most about being in a romantic relationship is having a willing audience for all of the silly things that I want to send text messages about. So I text dumbness to the wide open space of Twitter and somehow it isn't as fulfilling.
I read a headline that some scientists had determined that people have similar brainwaves of affinity for their smartphones as they have in romantic love. I failed to read the actual article but I propose an explanation: our phones are totemic of our relationships with those people that we love. We send and receive loving messages through these devices. It stands to reason that some base lizard-level of our brain sees the communicative device itself as the medium of our love.
Stands to reason.
