Women love their mobiles more than their boyfriends – says survey

LOSING a mobile phone is more upsetting to a woman than losing her boyfriend.

When it comes to a woman’s most treasured possessions phones and photographs rate much higher than boyfriends, with a majority of women saying they would be lost without their mobile but would happily go without a man in their life. The study of 4000 women by British pawnbroker Borro, found the majority of women see their mother as their most prized possession followed closely by their photographs and then their mobile phone. In the figures released yesterday, four in every 10 women said they would be lost if they were left without their phone.

Aside from their phones and mothers, woman treasured their friends more than then their boyfriends as well. Also making the list of most treasured items in a woman’s life was diamond rings, pets, laptops and hair straighteners.  There was also more bad news for men, with a large number of those surveyed saying they would consider dumping their boyfriend or husband if offered more than a $1 million cash to do so.

Anne Hollonds from Relationship Australia said the survey’s results showed the changing focus of what is important in many women’s lives. “I think it fits within the fact that we are very focused on our own lives these days,” Ms Hollands said.
