If you’re out on a date this weekend and start texting or scrolling through WhatsApp in the middle of it . . . it might NOT ruin your chances.
Almost half of single people in a new survey said it’s becoming more socially acceptable to use your phone on a date. But pulling your phone out DOES still come with risks. Just not the ones you might think of.
30% of people said they’d stop dating someone if they had an older phone . . . like a flip phone . . . that couldn’t support certain apps they use.
20% said it’s a turn-off if the other person’s phone doesn’t have the same operating system. Like if they have an iPhone, and you have an Android.
And about 10% said a cracked screen is a major turn-off, because it makes you seem cheap, clumsy, or careless.
By the way, if you’re out on a second or third date this weekend, don’t try to rush things. Another new surveyfound the average person needs to go on NINE good dates before they’re really ready to commit.
