When alone, you look at your phone like someone is texting you
At a mixer? At a gathering with people you don’t know? When you have no one to talk to and you’re not immediately feeling like a social butterfly, you stare down at your phone and find something to look up so that you can seem important. In reality, you’re just checking old emails, looking at gossip sites, trying to play Words With Friends on the low, and hope someone won’t realize you’re as bored and lonely as they might be.
