You're going on a first date with this very attractive girl/guy. You take her/him to a restaurant, not too fancy, but perfect for a first date to get to know each other and have fun. You sit down, start talking, trying to figure out what to order, and once your order is taken, s/he picks up their phone and starts typing... and keeps typing even after you tried to get the conversation going.
I'm patient and gradual when it comes to this so id do a number of things.
if he's texting say for a few seconds then puts it back down, ill be okay, but if he's on it for a long time, ill probably try to distract him at first. u know, maybe hold his hand, act as if he's got something in his hair, etc.
if he's STILL not getting it, then ill just say "I don't mean to sound clingy hun, but I was wondering if maybe you could keep your focus on me. We don't spend much time together and I wanna look into them pretty eyes" ;) or something.
if he STILL doesn't get it... i say this. "ok, i tried, but i can't really be with someone who doesn't really want much to do with me. I'm gonna go."
if he apologises and tells me to stay, ill give him a chance. if not, ill be putting my portion of the bill on the table and I'm out.
Well since it would be a dude I would take on a date. First i will pull this trick that I normally do with my boyfriend if he's falling asleep or not looking. The trick is to make it so your boobs show more without them knowing your fixing your shirt. Then you wait to see how long it takes them to even notice your tits are showing a good bit. Though that only works if he looks up at some point. Then through out the thing I probably would have a laser pointer on me. So I would constantly keep shinning it in the dudes eyes. Each time he keeps texting for a bit. The look once dudes finally notice your tits are showing a bit is priceless. :D
Of course I'm still going to eat something because I'll be starving. So I would tell them order what ever you want that it's not a problem. Though towards the end and convince them to have desert. I would get up and find the waiter we had. While he isn't looking would pay for my half of the meal and leave him stuck there for his half not paid.
I would definitely be offended that he would whip out his phone and text a whole lot on our first date. I'd be thinking, "why did you ask me out again?" And I would already plan to not see him again. I myself would get up and leave him there.
Look here's what id do, I've already ordered and if he's on his phone I don't care I'm at least going to get a good meal out of this. Once I was finished eating I would get up and leave, letting him pay the bill, and then I'd sit in the vet and message his phone asking how his date is going.
Show boobs. Lol I'm just kidding, definitely get up and fucking leave. I don't even put my phone on the table out of respect to the person I'm having a date with and I have no interest in a person who is constantly on their phone...
If it is just a short check of the phone every once in awhile, meh, whatever. I can get over that.
If the girl is constantly on her phone and it feels like I'm being ignored, first I'll mention something about it. If she still doesn't get the hint/doesn't care, I'll just eat my meal for what it is worth, and then pay for my stuff. (Definitely wouldn't be paying for her side considering I wouldn't exactly be wanting to give courtesy to someone who was rude like that). I'd leave and count that as a strike, move on, and accept it has a failed date.
So I guess a mixture of B and C. I'm not going to spend the night constantly trying to get her to talk, but I'll try at least a little.
While I do have a good dose of patience and am just overall very patient in general this kind of stuff kind of annoys me. Call me old fashion but when your on a date with someone whether it be a first date or the hundredth date put your phone away and put your attention on your girl or guy it's rude to be doing that when your with someone and it makes the other person feel neglected or like she or he doesn't care about you or what you think or want at all.
Now if you are expecting an important call or text relating a family or job issue or something like that then I can understand having your phone out and checking it now and then. This goes for friends and strangers to, keep your phone away while talking to people, eye contact and put your attention on them and hope they do the same.
As for what I'd do on the date I'd see the date through to the end because I'm a stand up guy and I don't want to make a scene but unless she put her away her phone and actually gave me some attention there won't be a second date.
None of the above. She's obviously not into the guy, just there for a free meal because she didn't have any better offers for the evening, so I would get up, ask the waiter to have my order packaged to go, pay for my order, leave, then text her and say, "Sorry, but I just wasn't into it and had to leave, Went home to paint my spare bedroom. Hope you have money for your meal and a ride home."
I would point out it being rude, look over her shoulder see what she is so engrossed with (just to hammer home how rude it is). If she continues eat my meal pay my half of the bill and leave (probably wouldn't even say anything, not like she would pay attention any way). Honestly why would I do anything else, if she was this disinterested the probability of a second date is slim and even then why would I even want a second one?
I find it very disrespectful. When om on dates, I make sure to put my txts on vibrate and phone calls on loud (incase of an emergency).
I don't even look at my phone while on a date. If she is constantly looking at her phone and not paying attention to me, then I quickly loose intrest. The date last what 45-90 mins if she can't put the phone down for that long I will probably not be intrested in the long run.
I was friends with a girl who was like this , she'd be at the pub or bar and her phone would never be far away , I'm not sure who she'd be texting or talking to as she'd never be texting me even though she'd talk to me there , it was very annoying and rude , I think its like a bad habit
