Put your phone away when on a date

When you’re on a date with someone, put your phone away. For one, it’s disrespectful. And for another, focus on the now. That’s one thing that modern people don’t get – they don’t know how to live in the moment.

Technology is great. And it’s terrible. Technology has made me a lot of money. I’ve invested in tech stocks from almost the beginning and some of them have gone through the roof.

However, it’s also made us disconnected. As a kid growing up in the 70s, we’d use to go outside and play. Too many kids nowadays don’t even know how to do that. Because of technology, a lot of those kids are wimps. And social retards.

If you’re on a date and they won’t put away your phone

This applies for both women and men. If you’re on a date, and they won’t put away their phones, ditch them.

Yes. I’m quite serious.

They are disrespecting you and you don’t deserve that bullshit. Excuse yourself, like you have to go to the bathroom or something, then ditch their rude ass. And after they found out that you ditched them, do not apologize either.

Hey, I’m a very busy man myself. However, if I’m with you, I’m with you. I’m not with the phone.

Unless the person actually has a real emergency job, like emergency room nurse or surgeon, then whatever that text is, it’s not more important than you. If you allow the phone to be more important than you, then you deserve what you get.

Think about it. How much do you value yourself? How much do you value your time?

You’re on a date, and the other person is sitting there checking his or her phone instead of interacting with you. Excuse yourself, and ditch them.

Doing my part to make the world a better place.
