6 Ways Your Phone Is Ruining Your Dating Life

Quote:
I don’t want any of you to be sabotaging yourselves from finding great connections all because of your cell phone. So to help you be aware if you unknowingly killing your love life by “self cell phone sabotage,” here are 6 ways your phone may be ruining your dating life:


1. You’re Stopping Them Mid-Approach: You’re in a store where someone is checking you out – someone you’ve also noticed and found attractive. Then that someone decides to approach you, but the minute they take their first step in your direction, your phone rings . . . and you answer it. Not only do you answer it, but you proceed to have the same unimportant repetitive conversation with the friend who called you. By doing this, you have stopped someone who was already interested in you from approaching – and they probably won’t wait around to do it a second time.

I thought this was a good read.

good read. I know many of these "phone whores" that are too wrapped up with convos on the phone or text messages. Was at one of my friends weddings a few weeks ago and my friends gf was on her blackberry pretty much all night having a text convo, so fuckin disrespectful.

that was a good read. those reasons were exactly why i got rid my blackberry, i was turning into a huge phone whore. stupid crackberry addiction, you just sit there and wait for that damn little red light to blink telling you that you have a bbm or text waiting.. with my iphone, i dont have any of these problems. i am able to leave it sitting around without checking it for texts etc.

overusage of the phone when you're out w/ friends or on a date.

I knew someone who'd talk to his g/f while we were out and just DISAPPEAR.

left me on robson once 'cuz they were arguing over something stupid and he was gone for FOUR HOURS.

needless to say, I left after the first 10 minutes. That's some rude shit.

Cause to them it's "rude" getting called or calling someone and it's "not' when you text.

I hate texting, and I hate friends who will constantly be texting when you're hanging out with them, I think it's so rude.

The best is having sex while texting

I was once watching a movie at home with this guy, he spent 1/4 of the movie on his blackberry then made me re-watch the last 1/4 of the movie with him. ...and don't think I didn't notice.....I did.

You think girls are bad?
You dunno how many guys go out and just keep texting and talking on the phone.
It's so freaking annoying, such a waste of time hanging out with people like that.
Like why even come out if you're just going to do that, just go hang out with that person or stay home.

People who give constant attention to their phones are doing it to appear like they're important when that's probably not the case.

"I'm so important because I have 6 BlackBerry Messenger conversations and 3 SMS conversations going on at the same time while I sip on my Bellini."

FYI - I am BlackBerry user.

my friend's gf has 2 phones. 1 for "business" and 1 personal. She works for rogers. I wanna slap her upside the head. She's constantly on her phone 24/7 talking and texting. Wtf is the point of even hanging out if you're just gonna phone whore all day.

I've kicked people out of my car for that.

With fair warning beforehand, of course.


It's ok if it's the odd 2 minute conversation 'cuz her/his friend wanted to confirm something or they're making quick plans, etc.

But to just ramble on? I almost chewed my friend's head off last night at the Transformers movie 'cuz the movie's starting and he was still talking.
I told him twice, and he kept going, being like "what? not like I'm buggin anyone"

I told him to either talk outside or I'll smash his phone. I think he got the hint.

Having entire texting conversations while out with friends is just plain RUDE.

The only thing worse than that is Hongers who don't shut off their phones in the movie theatre, and text like crazy on their 4" screens with white backgrounds. When they do that I make it a point to eavesdrop over their shoulders.

^ I've encountered a couple hongers that actually started talking mid-movie, multiple times.
on 2 occasions I walked over, took the phone, and threw it off the top.

Was applauded by the audience both times.

^ looked at me and went "wtf?"

I looked at them and I went "stfu, sit the fuckdown, enjoy the movie. You can tell your mom to buy you another phone tomorrow. And maybe some manners. Please excuse me"
in a semi-nice way.

I mean, I don't do it often. it's only twice.

But it's fucking annoying. They were 2 rows up, and it wasn't super duper packed, but pretty busy. And their ringers were on, they gabbled on the phone for minutes at a time. At one point the girl was picking out a dress for her friend on the phone.

I was like "WTF?"

You should be able to go outside for that shit.


ugh, don't even get me started on ppl who bring their dog-in-a-bag into theaters.
I'd throw them too but it's illegal. always wanted to football punt one of those little motherfuckers.
