Does It Annoy You When Your Significant Other Texts During a Dinner Date?
Just wondering how people feel about it when your significant other texts during a dinner date? This includes both married and unmarried people out on a date. I am referring to unimportant texts that are just banter with friend that can wait, not an important text from the babysitter or something like that. How does it make you feel about them and the date?
Awful to say the least. I have corrected my spouse many times about it. He keeps saying won't do it but there is always a second time. One time he tried to trick me and sent me a text to see if I open my phone to reply. He got fooled because I left my phone at home.
I think its rude and do not entertain it when I am talking. However I do think texting and usage of phones as an extension of ourselves is here to stay, I am indifferent to this change.
Yes, unless it is an important family matter as you say. There should be an electronic use timeout for those moments.
Yes. It would tell me that the date is uninterested in myself. I would also interpret it as it possibly being underlying incompatibility issues if we are not able to engage in meaningful conversation- dating.
Depending on who the friend is (nature of the friendship ie: best friend or relative?), I could probably over look the disturbance provided my glass was full-married answer.
One recent study shows that only 7% of the adult population believes texting is OK at dinner.
I get annoyed when anybody I am with texts anybody for any reason. Put your damn phones away.
I get annoyed when casual friends text during dinner! I think it's rude to constantly be checking the phone when real people are sitting right in front of you, waiting to interact. I never take my phone out when I'm at the table, and rarely check it when I'm out with someone.

Let's pretend for a moment, you got a chance to date the woman/man/whatever of your dreams. How would you visualize your perfect date with them would be.
