Old school dating rules
No one dared to use the phone while everyone was eating.
Basically, what we do is either gossip at dates or reveal ourselves, often to an unnecessary degree. Part of that is the special outfit, and don’t worry if she/he will notice. Once upon a time, when a gentleman called on a lady, he went with flowers and a box of chocolates or some such little treat.Most of us are too young to know about old-fashioned dating habits. None of this “meet you there” or “hanging out.” I have girlfriends who tell me all the time… But if you’ve seen old movies, then you know men used to call a lady to ask her on a date several days before. I don’t mean wear a formal, but at least wear nice clothes and put some effort into your appearance. “no one ever asks them out on official dates…” It’s easy, you just call someone and ask them out on a date, or ask them in person. By the way, you might think this is only valid for first dates, for the early stages of a relationship but that’s not necessarily true.The great thing about old-school romance is that it can work equally well with “old” couples, as one way of keeping that flame alive.
