In today’s distracted world, where people are panicked when they don’t have instant access to their electronics, face-to-face meetings can be a foreign concept. When getting to know someone, it is important that they feel you are giving them your undivided attention. Cell phones need to be on silent and put away while on a date. Communication needs to be real. Take the time to call them and have a real conversation. Do an activity on your date where you have ample time to get to learn more about the person.
