History of dating etiquette
After World War II, it was popular to ask girls out over the phone.
Dates often happened not tete-a-tete but in public places, among other young people.
A gentleman would come to lady’s house where their first date took place.
A woman was necessarily accompanied by a chaperone.

Back in the day way before Internet and social media, men making the first move really was the golden rule of dating.
It was artificially coined and it originated from the cultural rather than biological grounds.
The aim of this metaphor was to discourage women from their careers and direct their priorities to maternity and relationships. No-strings-attached relationships allowed men and women to be active players on the dating field.
Every country has its own dating etiquette since it closely connected with local culture.
Their further dates were held in the same way until they felt a romantic interest in each other. At the outset of the 20 century, women could be arrested for dating.
Men walking in the streets with women, buying them food and flowers were a new phenomenon, so the authorities didn’t know how to react.
It was used in the meaning of “the date on the calendar when a person has a romantic rendezvous”.
There wasn’t such thing as dating 200 years ago since marriages were arranged by parents.
