WHAT TO Check Before A ROMANTIC DATE (d5d78a3)

4. Check Your Phone
Your wallet isn’t the one thing in your pocket you have to be aware of, though. Your phone, your one real love, your digital brain-extender gadget, can be an important section of your date also. Or rather, its absence is. Before you leave on a romantic date, put that phone in Airplane mode. If you are likely to a movie (or perhaps a play, classy guy) you’d take action anyway. If you are afraid you’ll miss something crucial, call or text your parents or your friends and tell them about your radio silence beforehand.
Having an unintrusive phone gives you the very best of both worlds – although it won’t be buzzing and ringing and butting its way into your flirtatious conversation (or other steamy stuff), it’ll still be ready at your beck and call should you need to Google other nearby sushi restaurants that are open on Tuesdays or call a cab when you’re too drunk to walk her home. (And after you’re done reading this, find a cab company you trust and put their number in your phone or download a cab-hailing app). In conclusion, putting your phone on Airplane mode is important because it saves your date from things you can’t control: your friends and acquaintances, and your own worst, Twitter-checking impulses. The date is about the two of you – and it should stay that way.
