Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- Television, radio, and the Internet have been buzzing nonstop for years now about how the advent of Smartphones would change the lives of men and women all over the world, but what about their dating lives? Sure, the rapidly upgrading technology has arguably made doing business more efficient, made accessing the internet more convenient, and made keeping in touch with friends and relatives over social media more immediate, but what has it done for romantic relationships?
Has the ever-increasing use of Smartphones by millions has led to dating success or dating sabotage? Nobody's been bold enough to shine a spotlight on Smartphone pros and cons as they relate to the love lives of singles everywhere until now. The Victory Unlimited Show (www.victoryunlimitedshow.com) attacks this issue with the kind of guts, gusto, humor, and controversy that's rarely heard in the mainstream media.
Based on calls, emails, and Social Media feedback from the show's fan base, the host produced a broadcast entitled "How to Stop Making Dumb Moves With Smartphones" that gives many real-life examples of how good Smartphone use goes bad.
Below is a list of the Top 10 Dumbest Moves that Daters make with Smartphones:
#1 - Keeping your phone out on the table, checking your messages, and texting other people while you're out on a date with someone. (This is the fastest way to make the other person feel disrespected, marginalized, and ignored by you. So much so, that if they were to decide to get up and walk out on you---you wouldd probably deserve it!)
#2 - Saving the side dudes or side chicks name in your phones contact list as Mom to try to hide from your significant other the fact that you're cheating. (Hey, we know that ain't your momma calling you that damn much!)
#3 - Calling someone you're romantically interested in and trying to talk sexy to them while you're using the bathroom. (Yes, we know that youre actually in there tinkling or taking a crap because we heard that telltale, bathroom echo sound over the phone the second you first stepped in there!)
#4 - Entering a new relationship, but forgetting to delete all the old Not-Safe-for-Work pictures still in your phone of people from your past relationships. (You would be surprised to know just how many folks sabotage potentially good new relationships by failing to thoroughly throw out the electronic trash from their old ones.)
#5 - Texting people to ask them out on dates instead of calling them. (Men: Just in case no one ever told you, this makes you look lame, timid, and weak in the eyes of many women.)
#6 - Leaving your phone unattended and unprotected while you're out on dates with random new people. (These days, when most people keep and conduct the majority of their personal business on their Smartphones, leaving your phone lying around is just asking to have your secrets exposed and your identity stolen.)
#7 - Living with someone, but still cheating on them while you're supposedly in an exclusive relationship. (Once your live-in lover starts to suspect you of cheating, it's only a matter of time before you make a mistake one day and leave your phone unlocked. And when this happens, that'll be the same day that your faithful partner will use your phone to callback every single number in your contact list until they find out who the hell you're cheating on them with!)
#8 - Obsessively taking sexually provocative Selfies and constantly posting them up on Social Media multiple times a day. (Women: Just in case no one ever told you, this makes you look like conceited, attention junkies addicted to getting Likes from a legion of lustful losers in the eyes of many men.)
#9 - Texting someone you're interested in a million times a day, and then getting mad when they don't text you back right away. (Hard Core Truth: Absence makes the heart grow fonder---but no one likes a pest. How can the other person ever even begin to miss you when you're always blowing up their phone 24/7?)
#10 - Failing to realize that the best use of Smartphone technology is to facilitate and enhance the value of face-to-face romantic relationships, not replace them. (Enough said!)
The Victory Unlimited Show is a "tongue-in-cheek" self-help show for men that is reminiscent of programs from the Golden Age of Radio. During each broadcast, the host codenamed "Victory Unlimited" answers dating, relationship, and life strategy questions by addressing them with a motivational, military-like zeal. "Whenever you're out on a date with someone and you find yourself giving more attention to your phone than you are to them---then I think it's safe to say that you're doing it wrong, says the host. Everybody knows that the plot of most futuristic, Sci-Fi Horror movies usually have something to do with technology going out of control -- and todays real-life dating world is turning out to be no different."
