Texting During Dates
Q: I get a lot of business emails and texts and sometimes need to respond quickly. Im dating a lot, and one woman got very upset when I politely asked to leave dinner for a minute to handle a business email and phone call. What is appropriate texting and cell phone use during a date? -Mario, 48

Dr. Anna: It comes down to how fully you can give your attention to your date. If you know that youre going to need to respond to something quickly, give your date a heads up. Hey, I am so excited to be with you tonight, but Im on call for work, so I may need to step out for a moment. Communicate that you care about them and deeply regret the interruption. Try to keep your phone away and on silent and check it less than once an hour unless there is a true emergency going on. If she cant handle it, then she cant handle you, and shes not the right one anyway.
