Call ####.' It was amazing when online dating started up and you could write and read whole paragraphs! I only have experience dating in the 90s, but back in the day there actually was a chance that someone didn't get your message, and there was no expectation of immediate response. You got their life story through the eyes of your mutual friend before Y'all even met. You knew you were OK ifya walked away from the initial meet & greet with a phone number.If someone didn't get back to you for a day or two, there was no need to start freaking out about if he really liked you or not. Some of us had answering machines so we could leave a message.

When I asked my daughter why they young man didn't come in the house for the "look over", the response was "Father you're so old fashioned'. How did one date in the late 1940's and the 1950's?
Lean back and turn the clock to my teen years when dating was a mystery and the rules and etiquette were defined. That meant there were five men in the house and our mother.
Many adults use online dating to meet people because they are busy and their social circles tend to shrink as they get older.
The advantage that teens have over their adult counterparts is that they have a built in social network in their schools and outside activities.

Ok, I was without any of these too so my brothers and Father pitched in. You were supposed to bring your date flowers as a matter of courtesy. He should have known I was shaking beside the hand shake. I got through the first part of my date successfully.
My older brother gave me his suit to wear and mercifully it fit. Luckily Pops had a shirt that fit me along with a neck tie that was wide and loud. And the last wardrobe requirement, make sure your shoes were shined to impress your date. And, hold on: make sure you walk on her right side and protect her from any possible auto hitting her. And oh yes, don't forget to open the door for your girlfriend and mind your manners. First, lake sure you got to the movie theatre before they changed the price of admission. Everyone liked the restaurant and it was less expensive than most other places at that time. After the movie we went to the restaurant, Hoe Sai Gai which was on Randolph St.
I was lucky to have my own pants and sometimes had to wait for my older brothers to give me their hand me downs. And then the dreaded moment, the parents together, coming to inspect their daughter's date.
