    She's distracted by her phone…

    We are not dating, I am trying to build interest. It’s there, but it’s not strong. Sometimes, while I’m talking to her, she is easily distracted by her phone and uses it as an escape to socialize. But, then she wants me to stick around and talk to her.
    Sometimes, when she does this, she will use it as an opportunity to show me something and make some great laughs.
    I want to make myself more interesting than her phone.
    The questions are these:, should I immediately go to another chick and show attention the moment she picks up the phone?
    Sometimes, there are no other chicks around, what do I do then?
    And if she brings it up, how would I address it without sounding like a little faggot who is jealous of a piece of technology?

    While she is being disrespectful towards you, don’t disrespect her and gain the attention of another while you are with her. Have a talk with her that describes how you feel when she pulls out her phone so much. Something like “when you bring out your phone so much I feel as though you are not enjoying my company. I have set apart this time to spend with you, but you are spending time with your phone instead. I feel like you don’t want me here” or something like that. If she is childish about it, I wouldn’t try to build something anyway, as I see you don’t like it very much anyway. Good luck!

    Slowly be interesting.
    Now you’re slowly losing her as if she’s getting bored of you.

    How about just joking with her by saying “I’m sorry, am I boring you?” but not in a nasty way. Some people genuinely are addicted to their phones and maybe don’t even realise how it looks.

    You are correct. She is addicted. An I like this answer, but I don’t know how to deliver that question without inadvertently sounding like the asshole she and I both know I can be.

    I agree withy this line, but I wouldn’t know how to deliver it without sounding like the asshole she and I both know I can be.

    And she is certainly addicted.
