Is your love life lacking? If so then there is a chance all your problems could be solved simply by switching off the computer.

Americans are neglecting on love, romance and sex in favour of spending more time on the internet, reports

The survey, conducted by ad agency JWT, found that one in five people were having less sex as a result of the time they spent online.

And over a quarter were meeting up with friends less frequently.
