Being contactable at the moment is now a must in all "modern times" relationships, under pain of the boyfriend – or the friend or family member – to be concerned … or even angry.
"Connectivity" has become a vital part of love, family and friendship, according to a study by Kaspersky Lab.
The results of the analysis, involving 750 Portuguese, revealed that when they can not use their devices, most fear that their family and friends will care about them (51%) or that they can not help someone in the family if they need to (45%).
And concerns about meaning and the importance of having mobile devices always attached to love relationships seem to be justified. The consequences of being without a network, for example, can range from the loss of a meeting (21%) to long-term problems. One in six respondents (15%) admit to having already had "problems" with their heads half due to lack of battery, loss or theft of their mobile devices.
