There is no question that they are incredibly handy, they allow us to keep in touch with everyone in our lives and they can even help us find dates.

With internet dating become ever more popular and dating apps readily available on our phones, it's quite easy to meet and connect on the go.

But one time that you shouldn't have your phone glued to your hand is when you're on a date.

The best idea is to leave your phone at home completely, that way you won't be distracted by it.

Plan where and when you're going to meet your date so that you can leave your phone at home and don't need to use it once you've left the house.

By leaving your phone at home it means that you'll be fully focused on your date rather than your social life.

It's so often now that we see phones at the table at dinner and you'll be surprised at how many times you'll pick it up.

Next time you're out to dinner, count how many times you check your phone - you'll be shocked and how often you touch it!

It's only polite and respectful to give your full attention to your date so leave the phone at home and just see what kind of a difference it makes.
