Hank's stay in the hospital is accompanied by some daunting bills, but Skyler thinks she has a way of dealing with them.Meanwhile, some of the problems between Walt and Gus are ameliorated; and Jesse seeks more independence and grabs a profitable opportunity that presents itself.
After almost a year of searching and scouring every Website in Los Angeles for the perfect match, I had — I thought — finally found her: the One for Me. What's the harm in doing a little casual "people watching," right? And who doesn't wonder every now and then if maybe they could do a little better than their current mate? On the Internet, I had an actual catalog of available women, listed with their quirks, characteristics, and measurements.
That meant two full minutes until she came out — two full minutes for me to grab my computer, check my online dating profile, and — inevitably, guiltily — slam my laptop shut just as she snuggled up next to me on the sofa. Just days earlier I had been ready, even eager, to take my profile down for good.
OFM had it all: intelligence with a streak of creativity, the ability not just to hear but to listen, a searing sense of humor with a tang of sarcasm, and a really great rack. Finding someone better was no longer innocent curiosity; it was easy — and it became an obsession.
We started seeing each other regularly — quickly moving from making out in my car to doing much more in my bedroom — and talked on the phone every day. Except for this: I still checked my profile once, twice, three times a day. Yes, OFM listened, but what if someone else listened better?
Smartphone addiction, sometimes colloquially known as “nomophobia” (fear of being without a mobile phone), is often fueled by an Internet overuse problem or Internet addiction disorder.
After all, it’s rarely the phone or tablet itself that creates the compulsion, but rather the games, apps, and online worlds it connects us to.
Smartphone addiction can encompass a variety of impulse-control problems, including: Compulsive use of Internet pornography, sexting, nude-swapping, adult chat rooms, or messaging services can impact negatively on your real-life intimate relationships and overall emotional health.
While online pornography and cybersex addictions are types of sexual addiction, the Internet makes it more accessible, relatively anonymous, and very convenient.
True, OFM was smart, but couldn't I find someone smarter?
