Are You A Nomophobe?
Well are ya?  I know quite a few and it blows my mind.  I love technology and all that it brings, but sometimes I like to turn everything off and get away.   

Let's try and keep it clean.

Um, no. I hate the phone. I rarely even answer it. I only text when I'm in the mood, and I don't respond to most people. Oddly, I talk to more people from here on it than real life family and friends. The ONLY reason I keep it on is because I have a 4 year old who isn't always with me and I don't have a house phone. Otherwise, I'd probably always leave it at home.

Nope- from the old school from the when you had to drop a dime to talk to someone and if you got a busy signal you just had to wait your turn,,,,, i call them now tracking devices- some of us need them some of us despise them- im versatile thanks for CSI showing us the damage they really do!!

I suppose I am. I don't always have it on, but I feel lost if I don't have it on me or near me.

Haha.  It's someone who can't be without their phone.  I saw a girl in the bar a few weeks ago have a panic attack because she couldn't find her phone.  It was in her purse...along with 5000 other things she didn't need.  Freaking LP floozies.

I only fear that when I'm out driving. For safety reasons. Otherwise I could care less. I turn mine off every night  when I just wanna relax and be left alone. smiley

Nope.  In fact, most of the time, I am not on my computer at night and very little on the weekends unless it's to listen to music.

As far as my iPhone goes, I rarely text and I'm not much of a phone talker......I'd rather talk to you in person. Most of the time, i'm on my phone to play Words With Friends or check out scores.

...and I had one of these...

Just discovered it....and bookmarked.  It's like askmen.com only it's not blocked @ work.

That's just it.  While I find both texting and talking on my fiddler to be annoying, at least texting gives me the ability to choose when I answer.

I didn't know if/what the term for it was, I just called myself a "technophile." But yes I am a nomophobe, I want the latest cell phone, biggest and best TV, fastest computer. I don't even drink coffee, but I want one of those krelig or whatever it is machines.

I'll admit it. Yes.

(And Kevin - they have little hot chocolate k-cups too, and tea if you drink it, so there's that...there's your justification)

I got one in... I think February - and I concur about its awesomeness. But I drink coffee. It's great for those of us who are the only ones in the house who drink coffee regularly and only have one or two cups/day...not enough to warrant making a whole pot to waste.

I don't need justification, if I want it I will buy it.

I keep mine at the office.  I could drink the company stuff for free, but that requires walking across the office, and quite frankly, I'm too lazy.

I agree with that philosophy - I'm the same way...I guess that was the wrong wording. That gives you something to use it for rather than having it just sit and look pretty on your counter (though, that's cool too).

I think people in North Carolina should be able to use whatever phone they want and call whoever they want. Just because they prefer an iPhone, it has NO effect on your landline. #Adam&SteveJOBS

My phone stays on vibrate and I rarely answer it unless I'm expecting a call.  My family is full of nutjobs who feel like they have to announce themselves...."Hi, Christi.  This is your sister, _______.  It's Monday 10:00.  I guess you're at work."  Three of those sentences deserve the "No s**t, Sherlock."  My mom always calls and has nothing much more to say than "Did you just call me?"  To which my first thought is "Godd**nit, she's forgotten how to check her calls AND her voicemail AGAIN." (and she's forgotten where I put the written instructions). 
#25 | 875 days ago

Yes. My phone is always with me.

I originally thought the question was "Are you a Romophobe?,"  to which I would answer a resounding YES.
