Keep your cell phone put away while you are on a date. This is just as true on the first date as it is on the hundred and first. I can’t tell you how many times I have observed couples on dates and one of them keeps pulling their cell phone out to text (or to check Facebook). The other person is interested in you; show some interest in them by keeping your cell phone in your pocket.
Also, texting seems to have become a communication crutch we live our lives by. If you are only communicating with someone via texting, that may be a problem. Never underestimate the impact of actually talking to someone on the phone.
