London, Oct 21: Women office workers prefer spending more time with their computers than their husbands or boyfriends, reveals a new American research.
The study found that the ladies spend almost three times as much time with their computer than with their partners.
According to a poll of almost 3,000 Americans, women spend an average of 9.3 hours a day with their PC, compared with 3.6 hours with their other halves, reports the Telegraph.
Harris Interactive, who carried out the study, said that only one in five of the women said she wished she could spend more time with her partner than with her computer, despite developing problems like carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injuries.
Nearly two-thirds of women spent more time with their computer than they did shopping or outdoors, eight in 10 spent more time with it than exercising, and four in 10 were with it more than with their family, the study found.
