Just five minutes ago, I was happily typing away when someone's iPhone started ringing and I nearly had a heart attack. Why? Because the ringtone was the same I used on my iPhone when an ex-boyfriend called me. Even though the relationship wasn't super-serious and has long since ended, the simple ringtone was enough to give me a flash of anxiety.

The same thing happened last weekend when a friend's iPhone rang with the same ringtone — I actually made her change it! (See also: how to cut your ex out of your digital life).

While I may have overreacted a bit (I've since allowed my friend to change her ringtone back), I decided to adopt a one-ringtone-only policy, regardless of friends, family, or love interest status. What about you? And if you have a different solution, please leave it in the comments!
