Where were you?

According to an article in the New York Times, a majority of cell phones on the market today now allow a user to be monitored using GPS tracking.

Is your spouse truly stuck in traffic?
Is your friend really running late for dinner?

Thanks to GPS tracking devices embedded in cell phones, you can now see (monitor) exactly where your friends and loved ones are at all times.

Luckily, the technology allows individuals to determine who can track their movements. Add your friends to the list of people who can track your location, but block your mom from doing so.

However, how do you explain to your new romantic interest that you don't necessarily feel like being tracked?

I have a feeling that this new technology will not only lead to the loss of privacy, but it will also add another wrinkle to the dating scene.

If you didn't like dealing with questions such as "where were you?" - how much more fun will it be to deal with the following: "If you have nothing to hide, why don't you add me to your track list?"
