If one of your dates has ever resembled the above photo, then odds are, the answer is yes.

That’s why on Saturday, March 22, The Etiquette Academy of New England will host a workshop dedicated to dating etiquette, beginning with a personality assessment, teaching the do’s and don’ts of modern dating, as well as coaching participants to learn more effective communication techniques.

Madora Curtin, the academy’s marketing coordinator, said via email that over the past decade, the technology has introduced us to alternative ways to meet people—which is convenient; but as a result, it’s contributed to a deterioration of social skills (which, I say, is no bueno).

The workshop runs from 2 to 5 PM and costs $199. For more information, and to register, visit their website.
