    Seoul, South Korea has long promoted itself as the technology capital of the world. Much of its economic growth comes from innovations like touch screen cellphones we are all familiar with and fast internet connections like 4G LTE. Close to 70 percent of South Korea's population owns a smartphone. According to government data, close to 80 percent of South Koreans aged 12 to 19 owned smartphones in 2012 — double the number of teens who owned a smartphone in 2011.

    Despite all of its success in creating technology, South Korea fears its children are addicted to these devices. And it's not alone: many Americans may also be the victim of this addiction, suffering its consequences.

    It has been estimated by an Experian study that all Americans spend an average of one hour on their smart phones each day. This time, spent using smart phones, can be highly distracting. In a 2009 study of texting and driving, drivers who sent and received text messages while driving spent 400 percent of their time not looking at the road, distracted by their cell phones.

    The Federal Communications Commission estimates that 18 percent of fatal car accidents were a result of drivers being distracted while driving. They, and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, found that test messaging while driving causes a driver to be 23 times more likely to get into a fatal car accident. Lastly, 11 percent of drivers aged 18 to 20 got into an automobile accident while sending or receiving text messages.

    Falling In Love Addiction - BLOGGER

    Who among us isn’t snowed under that feeling when someone is fluttering us and at the same time confusing us, that total fascination with the object of our desire, that faith that this time we’ve found the one we are looking for all along. Maybe the most wonderful feeling in the world is the feeling of in love. We are overwhelmed and drown in confusion. Then it will occur to us with the gradual realization that yet again, it was just another fairy tale without a happy ending.

    The first 50%, which is sexual attraction, is the natures desire to procreate so we have that overwhelming urge to get it together, meaning the biological drive to have sex. Consequently, great sex which is very much pleasurable and rewarding in more ways is one reason why seeks opportunity to be together. This is according to some skeptics and the other 50% is projection. The second half is a bit harder to explain, first, what is projection? Projection is what we wanted our partner will be. It is the dream or our fantasy of an ideal partner, how they treat or act towards us. Someone only has to be apparent for a little sense of some of the distinctiveness but at the same time we should be able to feel those sexual tingles of attraction and the rest we will fill in our imaginations. And because we are overwhelmed with happiness we will disregard any erudition that will resist to the possible sight.

    If you are addicted in falling in love maybe you need to...
