“Put down that phone! Making doe eyes with a screen in-between, if that worked, we would know!” what does this mean?
I don’t even understand the English translation.
This question relates to:French lesson "Translating the -ing form of verbs with L'Infinitif (not -ant)"

It means simply you can't conduct a successful loving relationship if you are always staring at your phone ....

YOUR translation is quite clear, but I agree with Dernier that the "doe-eyes at the screen in-between" is a bit obscure. To me it resembles a Google-translation or perhaps an obscure Imagist poem ... you have to kind of guess at the meaning.
