A 2014 Nielsen survey found that the average American spends 11 hours on social media, and more than half of that time is spent looking at a smartphone or tablet. If you are expecting a call that can’t be postponed, alert your date ahead of time and excuse yourself when the call comes in if discussing private matters or confidential information. Never put your phone (or your handbag, keys, sunglasses or anything you can’t eat) directly on the table.

Most of us assume the first one-on-one date we experience with someone holds most of the weight in determining the future success of that connection. Keep in mind most people have 9-5 schedules, meaning don't call during work hours, and don't call after 9pm at night. It's not completely necessary to leave a message after the very first call, but if you try them again later and they don't pick up, leave a message and don't call back - it's up to them to contact you after you leave a message asking them to return your call. When you do leave a message, it should be short, cheerful, and concise. It's possible your first call might be slightly awkward, so make sure you have a reason to call, like setting up the first date. There's nothing worse than talking to someone who sounds negative or has low energy, especially when you don't know them very much.

There is nothing you could do more that would make the person you are with feel unimportant and special.

If you are with someone, especially in a social setting, keep the phone away. These tips should help you exercise proper cellular phone etiquette.
