    I find it annoying when I'm even out with friends and they are constantly on their phone, texting, talking, facecracking, whatever... if you're WITH people, be WITH them.

    as for a date, I'd be tempted to grab the phone and throw it on the ground, crush it with my foot, pick up the pieces, drop it on the date's plate, hand him a fork, and say, "If i have to sit here and eat this bullshit, so do you."

    but then, there would be exceptions to the rule, if they are expecting an important message of some kind. other than that... CUT.

    It's absolutely an addiction.
    They can't NOT answer it.

    This stupid bitch in the grocery store check out line answered her phone while she was trying to punch in all her information on the debit card machine. Of course, she kept making mistakes and starting all over.

    This stupid bitch came close to running her car into me, because she was on her hand held cell phone while she was driving, which is against the law.

    My last boyfriend, on the first day we had lunch together, out at a restaurant, was almost constantly on one or the other of his TWO cell phones. Why didn't I see that huge red flag ?

    I was in a small store, a guy's cell phone rang, he answered it, and the store owner ordered him to take it outside.
    HURRAY !!

    I just can't stand it when people insist on having personal phone calls in public (i.e. bitching at someone on the other line).

    Yes, it is inappropriate. I'd not see a guy a second time if he was texting or updating Facebook/Twitter while we were on a date. If I get an SMS, I leave it until he either goes to the toilet or he says something like "It's okay to get that." I'll then explain who it was and why they were SMSing, rather than just pretend it never happened.

    Why even try to fight it, I've just learned they'll do it anyway so I try to turn a blind eye and not make a big deal.

    I'm not bothered by the occasional usage, but if my bf overdid it, I'd tell him it didn't seem like a good time to be out on a date. If someone I was interested in having as a bf did it, I'd end the date early on the premise that it evidently isn't a good time for it.

    Rude and unnecessary... almost as bad as Farmville... no, seriously... if they make a Farmville app for the iPhone I am done.. I mean, I don't care if your roommate texts you at dinner and says "pick up some bread on your way through" but if I see the reflection of a purple cow on your pupils, it's DONE!

    I made this mistake. I was dating this guy, and I argued with my ex the entire dinner through text. The guy didn't call me ever again, and I still feel like shit. When I look back, I still feel like crap.

    I was checking out this guy at the gym. I thought he was pretty hot.. until I noticed that he was texting. A lot. He would do one set. Then text. Then do another set. Text again. Just a continuous cycle.

    The gym was dead so it wasn't like he was holding people up. But I was just imagining this guy texting throughout a date or something. Bleh.

    i was on a date with a guy who sat across from me and thought it was cute to text me while im next to him.

    first time i laughed it off
    second time i told him he's lame
    third time i told him that its really annoying
    fourth time i walked off and blocked his number and cut off all communication.

    reminds me of facebook where people have to write down every part of their life for the public to view.

    so FUCKING annoying.

    anyway my bitch session is over for the week icon_lol.gif

    OK I just assumed it was another case of my "Assdar" (Ass radar) So I'm at least glad to see it's happened to others (well not glad, but relieved) What are they thinking? While I'm sitting there, pretending to be fascinated with my coffee or w/e? Does anybody know what they're thinking? Maybe they're doing it on purpose, so I won't ask if they want to get together again....

    I use mine in the gym all the time. Because I have an application where my routines are neatly organized and I log my progress as go through (weights/reps). It's actually pretty cool.

    So if you see me in the gym tinkering with my phone, this is why. icon_smile.gif

    If I'm on a date and someone is texting or they jump on the phone, unless it's an emergency it's pretty much done for me. When I started dating again, I somehow managed to find a few losers right off the bat. About midway through dinner, one guy gets a text and starts texting. I was like oh hell naw! I actually told him I was going to throw his cell phone if he didn't stop texting (joking), and he just laughed it off. So after dinner was over, he was like, "Want to go back to your place?" I was like, "Naw, I don't do 3 ways." The sad part is -- he actually felt like we had a connection! He apologized for texting and said it wouldn't happen again, but I told him it wasn't going to work out and left.

    I have ifitness too it's pretty cool although use it mostly for weight and measurements.....I only wish they had a place for bf%

    I'll glance at it to see who's the message or call from and excuse myself if I need to answer otherwise ignore and answer or call back when I send him to the bar or he goes to the bathroom


    It's the 21st century....like it or not were always connected to the world icon_rolleyes.gif

    If I'm on a date with a new guy and his cell phone goes off and he doesn't answer it and turns off the ringer, I am most adequately impressed. It's a good way to have a good first impression.
