The world today is so wrapped up in technology people have seem to have lost the ability to communicate face to face. In public, you can often see strangers hiding behind their phones instead of engaging in intellectual conversations with those around them. As a member of the gay community, you may find hiding behind your phone to be a good way to blend in, but is that really what you want? You shouldn’t be afraid to show people who you are, even a stranger on the subway. While we are all hiding behind our phones, we are missing out on so many opportunities; that’s where DistractaGone’s lockbox comes in! This new project is designed to take the smartphones and lock them away for a set amount of time so you are free to enjoy all the things life has to offer without the distractions. Putting your phone down is not so hard but sometimes it still distracts you by ringing with messages and alerts, it’s easy to fall into the temptation of picking it up again.
The DistractaGone lockbox is a simple, yet brilliant idea for solving some of the communication issues faced today. When out with friends, people want to hear what you have to say, they want to know your opinion and how life is going. Plus, putting your phone away can help you find that special someone you may be looking for, which for gay men can be difficult at times. How would you know if someone is interesting, good looking, or single if you or him are staring at your phones the whole time you are out? In order to make new acquaintances, no matter what aspect of life, it is important to have excellent communication skills; if those skills all rely on texting, you could be in big trouble when you find the man of your dreams. The DistractaGone lockbox can help you enhance your skills at verbalizing your emotions and communicating openly and honestly with your partner. It will amaze you how much you enjoy someone’s company when your phone is out of sight, out of mind.
