By Kristine Ward human , inspire July 14, Perspective: I needed coffee way more than I needed to see clearly. As I descended my staircase, I spied a shock of red on the other side of my glass front door. It fanned out and filled the bottom half of the glass and was impossible to miss.

By Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD When I read some of the unnecessarily harsh comments people post on news articles or blogs thankfully, not usually mine , I become concerned for our collective future. When the cashier at a store is too busy texting to acknowledge my existence, I find myself put off and, again, concerned. So, I was happy when I recently had the opportunity to chat with Thomas P. Farley, a New York-based manners and lifestyle expert. Turn off your cell phone when you are with others and give them your full attention.
If you need to have it on because you are awaiting a very important call, let them know right up front. Give more attention to cell phones than people. This is rude and gives people the message that they are not important. In addition, constant texting means you are never really involved in your current interaction. Farley highlighted this point by noting that someone might not be attending to a conversation because he is texting about plans for dinner, and then arrives at that dinner where he begins to text to make plans for something else.
When commenting on blog posts or bulletin boards, be sure that your comments are constructive. You can certainly disagree or make critical statements, but this should be done in a constructive and not unduly harsh way. People too often use their anonymity to say things they would never say in person. Unfortunately, because people are getting used to being less-than-sensitive or have been the recipients of mean statements, this style of communication is trickling out to other interactions — which, of course, is not good for any relationships.

Your homework A key bit of dating advice here — preparation is an absolute must. Choose a public place for your date In the early stages of dating, you should always meet your date somewhere public such as a popular restaurant or a bustling bar. Never agree to be picked up at your home, and always make sure you have a way to get yourself to and from the date. Steer your conversation away from the negatives and keep your conversation upbeat and positive, it will make you seem more interesting and fun to be with.
Listen While you may be keen to fill every silence with chatter, if you allow your date to take their time with their stories; you might learn a thing or two. Listening and responding appropriately to comments made by your date will show that you have your own opinions and, perhaps more importantly, you are interested in what they have to say.
In the new millennium, finding someone to date isn’t nearly as tricky as mastering the art of dating. Between online dating, singles events, and the old-fashioned in-person meet and greet, it’s possible to date someone new on a regular basis.
Tweet on Twitter They say first impressions are everything and that is especially true when it comes to dating. Maybe you have no problem landing a first date with women. First dates are very telling. Women and men will assess whether they want to go out with this person again based on their mannerisms and etiquette on the first date. Do have a plan If you ask a woman out on a date, then plan a date.
I once had a friend who went on a date with a guy. Have a plan for dinner or drinks, and then have a second plan for something afterward if you feel the night is going well. Talk about yourself but also ask your date questions that will get her talking about herself. Joke around and have fun. You can usually get a pretty good vibe from one another through your interactions to know if a second date is in the cards. Be kind to wait staff, movie attendants, valet parkers, etc.
