You're one of the coolest people I know. I'm so glad we're friends.
*Says while texting*:Uh, thanks, you too..
Would you wanna see a movie sometime?
*Continues to text*Uh, sure..
So, do you think Derek likes you?
I'm not sure.. He was on his phone the whole time when I tried asking him out. I don't think he really cares about me.
"Being present and giving others your attention" is an important mindset to have, and smartphones are negatively affecting the way we communicate. It's important that we live in the moment, and put down our phones more often. Don't let your phone make you miss a great opportunity to show someone how much you care about them.
