Last Minute Valentine’s Giveaway: Win the Sony Xperia TL for AT&T

The last decade has brought about many new technologies that have changed the way we listen to music, read a book and even how we meet new people. Back in the day, people would strike up a conversation by commenting on the book you were reading or discuss an interesting article in the newspaper, nowadays people are intrigued by your new smartphone or tablet. Case in point, Duane and Hope had worked in the same building for two years, but finally broke the ice when she asked him about his Sony cell phone. They started dating and are now happily engaged, thanks to that AT&T phone!

In honor of Valentine’s Day and the nearly 100 million people that own a smartphone, AT&T wants to hear your stories about how technology has introduced you to that special someone. And in turn for sharing your story as a comment, you’ll be entered in for a chance to win a Sony Xperia TL Smartphone for AT&T. There are several ways to enter to win, but you’ll gain the most entry points by sharing your story below.

    I reconnected with my love through Facebook after losing touch with him for over 20 years.

    We using IM on the compute was popular it brought my husband and I closer together. See back then (we feel so old) it was the cheapest way to talk. Even though he lived only 15 mins away it was considered long distance and using the cell phone cut into peak mins. (OMG am I that old)

  • Jonny459

    I can’t say that technology has played a part, because I haven’t met that someone special as of yet.

    Before our first date, my husband and I had spoken on the phone a number of times, even before I met him face to face. A mutual friend had given him my number to call me and we spoke a number of times before we were able to finally meet.

    Well, I met my husband in a chat room. It was total random too. He asked me if I felt like chatting. Turns out that we had a lot in common.

    Technology leads to more technology.

    I’d have to say technology did help me meet my husband. Not too long ago, when we were in college, computers were newer and we had to go to a computer lab at school to use one. We were both waiting in line for the printer (a dot matrix!!!) when we both really started talking. Those old prints took a LONG time! 🙂

    Later that year (after we both broke up with girlfriends/ boyfriends) we worked on a joint project together and our romance blossomed in that same computer lab!

    Twenty years later we are still going strong!

    I’ve met friends, gotten in touch with long lost family and met my boyfriend online 🙂 None of which would have been possible without all this awesome tech 🙂

  • Steven

    My mum is divorced and ever since that happened she had been really lonely and almost depressed. So i convinced her to try an online dating site to try get someone special back into her life. At first she was really wary of it but then she met this really nice guy who she has loads in common with and he only lived half an hour away. So she went for a date and they hit it off. Shes been with him for 4 months now and you can really see the change hes made on her. Hes friendly with me aswell which makes it much less awkward. Tech has really improved her life 🙂

  • Virginia Rowell

    It has not really introduced me to someone special but technology keeps me in constant contact with my children whom I love very deeply.

    After a long period of frustrating relationships, one day I met this lady on one of the most popular social media…we started to chat, telling stories every day and finally I told her about my desire to be with her.. At first she refused and cut off communication. Then from no where I was eating in our university cafeteria… I heard a lady calling my name.. it was like charm… she was there and she wanted us to discuss deeper about what I told her online. Till now we are inseparable.. I love so much. Happy Valentine My sweetheart Anitha.
