Dining experts say smart phones and social networks have changed the way America dates.
"21 percent of our surveyors say they're more likely to ask out a date via text message, email or Facebook, versus only nine percent who said that in our 2009 survey," says Tiffany Herklots, Director of Communication for Zagat's.
Zagat's dating and dumping survey also reveals that like today's employers, a large number of digital daters do their homework.
"52 percent of our surveyors admit to Googling their date before they meet", says Herklots.
Other suggestions include finding your dates likes and dislikes, food and drink included.
And pick a place where you can have both good food and good conversation.
Then there are the digital don'ts.
"Using their mobile phone or their Blackberry at the table, texting, and tweeting is a sure-fire way to turn off your date," warns Herkel. "That will definitely ensure that you're not Mr. or Mrs. Right."
What if the date and or relationship just isn't working?
"Our surveyors have told us, 21 percent of them have admitted to breaking up over email, and 11 percent of them have admitted to breaking up over text message.
