The slight sizzle of the hibachi, smoke, and the aroma of teriyaki waifs across the room as I take a seat at the sushi bar. Fresh fish, vegetables, seaweed and mounds of rice are being molded into artistic masterpieces as I watch couples enjoying their cell phones and not the show of the art of making sushi. Why are they not talking, smiling, touching? Why are they both seated, heads bent, giving their time and attention to an electronic device that provides no physical connection to the heart? Why have they entered this beautiful restaurant to miss the moments? The food arrives and it’s more of the same, I look over, lock eyes with them both and ask “are you enjoying the sushi”, in unison they reply, “yes” and return to their cell phones. Yep, I am a bit unnerved here, especially if this is the current state of dating and relationships, at 43, this will not work for me!
