That's incredibly rude of you. You "guess"?! I'd would say that you were. Be a little more polite next time and stash your phone away; the newest twitter updates can wait.
I agree. People are really rude when it comes to messages and calls at dinner. You are on a date. Perhaps you don't like him enough to give him your attention. Unless it's a fire at your house or something stay off the phone. How would you feel if he was doing that to you.
YDI, I'm sorry honey, but before me and my husband got married, and even now that we are, I always checked us in and put my phone away. "Why check in? Why even use a phone when you're out?" Well I would check in twice and here are the reasons. The first check in was with my parents to say we arrived safe. The second was on facebook, I would put my status as "With my mister for a private night out at (incert date activity here)." I had to let my parents know, or they would call and text me to come home for forgetting. I had to let my friend know, or they would call and text me all night. I always told him what I was doing on my phone, it took 2 minutes tops, and the rest of the date/night I was his. :) Never use your phone during a date, it's rude, and makes them think you're uninterested or uninteresting. (P.s) I have a friend, lets call her Jill, and she is always on her phone. ALWAYS. Everytime I would invite her out to go with friends, spend the night, or just hang out, her face would be in that phone the entire time. But everytime I would text her she wouldn't text back until hours later, stating she forgot her phone somewhere. Everytime. So, I stopped wanting to hang out with her, obviously she didn't want to be there with me or didn't like me. So many, many, many moons later she texted me, asking what happened to us. I told her the reason, and the next time we hung out, that phone was left in the car, and we had a blast. You can still save this potential relationship, just apologize to him, a lot. YDI, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve another chance.
I have a friend, similar to this 'Jill' girl, who is constantly on his phone. He tried to date me awhile back. He was chatting with people on FB. I even logged in to see what he was doing on his page that was so important. He checked in and then was rating my outfit with his stupid friends. So I commented on the status, then walked out of the restaurant. He was not happy, since I was the one driving. I figured all the people he was talking to had nothing better to do than pick his happy ass up. Either way, I now have a thing against people who check their phone too much. Unless someone tells me, "Hey, I have an emergency/work" then I assume they are not interested in me and would like to end the evening early. This is however if they check it more than three or four times in an hour. Sometimes life happens and you have to reply to people.
OP, you totally missed out on a real life face to face conversation and connection to have a virtual one. That's just sad. Why do people even go out with their friends when they are all in their own little world on their phones?!? Just stay home if that's all you want to do when there are real people in front of you and an entire real world happening! You totally deserve what you got OP and you're lucky he was nice enough to stick around for the entire dinner! He should of walked out on you and stuck you with the entire bill and texted you to tell you never to contact him again.
You shoulda declined the date to begin with and explained to him that he would just be wasting his time because you are a rude, selfish bitch and wouldn't pay him any attention, then he wouldn't have wasted his time with you when he could have taken out someone a hell of a lot more engaging!
Number one rule on a date: NEVER be on your phone. That's so rude, pay attention to your date, not your phone!
