Are Post-it notes replacing conversation?

  • Are Post-it notes replacing conversation?

    One in ten couples relies on the hurried scrawls left on Post-it notes in order to communicate with their partner, a new survey has revealed.

    A survey of 850 women conducted by car insurance provider Sheila's Wheels found that one in five women text their boyfriends or husbands more than they talk to them and 11 per cent rely on Post-it notes to leave messages.

    It is thought that the lack of time to talk properly is due to the number of women who are now also responsible for bringing home the bacon, reports the Scotsman.

    Anna Pasternak, an author, told the newspaper: "We may think smugly we are holding it all together, but when you barely have time to make eye contact, that vital thread of intimacy frays."

    Dr Cynthia McVey, a psychologist at Glasgow Caledonian University, said: "There are two people in a relationship and as the dynamic changes and women are no longer only housewives, both sexes have to work harder to make their partnership work."
