We’ve all been there. You’re on a date, and you can tell that the other person is getting bored. So what do you do? You whip out your phone and start texting! But did you know that doing this can ruin your chances of ever seeing that person again? According to a study by Claire Wyart, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Berkeley, people who text while on a date are perceived as less interested, less trustworthy, and more selfish.
So next time you’re on a date, make sure to put your phone away and give the other person your undivided attention. You just might find that it’ll pay off in the end!
