In school, at work, and in relationships, smart-phones are changing the way we communicate. Before you text your valentine for a dinner date, you'll want to hear from etiquette expert, Carey Sue Vega. Here are some tips from her about dating and texting.
- Do NOT ask someone on a first date via text. If the invitation to a first date cannot be done in person, a phone call should be the bare minimum, regardless of age.
- The use of phones during a date - or a business meeting - should only be used if there is an emergency, such as a single mother with a sick child at home, or teenagers whose parents are checking up on them.
- Refrain from taking pictures on a date early in the relationship unless the other person suggests it.
- NEVER break up with someone via text message.
These tips are a sure way to show someone that they are important to you.
