What are you defining as Old Fashioned Dating? Do you mean like in Grease going to the Drive-In and the guy trying tobget lucky but the girl saying no, or traditional guy pays for everything, or taking things slow not jumping into anything right away no kissing on the first date and so on... If you're talking about do people take things slow not even a kiss on the first date; yes it does happen nit as much as in the past but it does. If I think I really want something serious with a guy we go slow so we truly get to know each other before throwing sex into the mix. If I know it's just a for now relationship I allow things move along faster. Those that I know there's no chance of any relationship but physically attracted ONS.
Thank you for the MHO.
It depends on what you define as "old fashioned."If you're asking if women in poodle skirts are going down to the diner that's the bee's knees with a chap from up the road, then probably not.If you're asking if people are going on preconceived notions of "normal dates" like coffee, or out for food, and adhere to traditional gender expectations then somewhat, but isn't as commonplace.
Though if I found a girl that loves poodle skirts and peter pan collar stuff, it’d be more like a day at the local Classic Car show and some ice cream afterwards!
Love this reply lol
Yes, they do.Not everyone are using dating apps and some just ask a potential date out. They may eat on a restaurant, take a coffee, go to the park or go to the cinema. Some meets their partner through friends, school or jobs. Dating may change, but it won't only be apps and on the internet.In developing countries where internet is less common they're also doing it in the old fashioned way. Not everyone gets into arranged or forced marriages - depending on the culture.
Can you please define "old fashioned?" Does that mean like the way they did it way back in the 1990's? :) :) :)
Ha Ha Ha good point. I posted the pic so people could go back in time to that ERA.. I mean seriously.. old fashioned can mean whatever you want it to mean.
I was born in 1955 so that 1950's stuff is not familiar to me. Of course, I date by the old fashioned formula but I am an old fashioned guy. I have a brass dinosaur on my desk!
Everyone has seen Happy Days come on man! LOL
Yeah, sure have, but I'm smart enough to know that Hollywood's depiction of life is far from realistic.
Damn it. I want to be Chachi who loves Joni ! LOL
coachTanthony it's Joanie Loves Chachi which in Korean means Joanie Loves Penis. That spin-off of Happy Days was the #1show in Primetime and re-runs for years, they still play it in re-runs. by the way, Happy Days was my Escape as a kid, wished I was Joanie.
Have an opinion?
Making out in parked cars still happens
Does it now? LOL
It's just been renamed dogging
Making out in parked cars, hand written love notes/letters and saying I love you's when you mean it...
Yes, it does!
Hopefully. (If I have a chance to go on a date, I'll tell you. 😁)It's kind of uncomfortable people, esp. "boys" these days would stalk on you on social media first, and delay approaching. Once they have some courage to do so, they keep texting and texting. I think it tricks our minds. We lose personal space, and start to react emotionally when receiving/not receiving texts. We play games, waiting for the time to reply, waiting for the other to reply you back. There is expectation, and that's exhausting. The moment of thinking of someone is not so wonderful anymore. As soon as the person appears on your screen, you feel like he or she is there but actually no. I'd prefer having an activity to do together, not just watching a movie. Going outside, like camping sounds intriguing to me.
It does with me. I expect a man to pick me up and be dressed and presentable when he does so. This means a shave too. I expect a nice experience over dinner and drinks where we can actually talk with one another and get to know each other. Perhaps a symphony, movie or other entertainment but all should be secondary to CONVERSATION.
Did you vote? If so which one did you pick?
I picked it still happens, although of course that mean just me.
It would be nice if you defined old fashioned dating, for me it can't be that old fashion I'm 25, maybe you at 48 have a better chance.How about updating your definition of old fashion dating, it's too general, it could mean being escorted during the date so you'll need to help us out.
Depends what you call an "old fashioned" date. I consider anytime two people who are in a relationship go somewhere to gave fun and connect a date. People still do that today. I've been on dates to restaurants, theater, a deer stand on one occasion, etc. Same things i assume people did 30 years ago.
It will always be the safest and best option. I don't see how people just jump into bed the sec they know each other name much less some even before that. To me, I need to know you will be a good mom in case she gets preg. If I just jump in the sack without knowing anything about you and you do get preg its a gamble that I'm not willing to take.
Old fashioned dating used to result in a shotgun wedding or couples eloping either because they had premarital sex and their was a baby on the way or because they couldn't wait any longer to have sex. Old fashioned dating used to involve a lot of heavy petting.
Because generations have evolved and technology has shaped society today, I believe that dating is different and more modernized. For example, a lot of people meet their date and chat on apps, where back in the 60s, there was not an alternative way to getting to meet someone without direct contact.
Sooooo we don't still meet girls at bars and clubs? Is that what you're saying?
@TedDeeG I am saying that it’s different how we meet people these days. Sure, meeting people at bars and clubs is possible but dating apps have also become popular.
I would say its pretty much done It doesn't exist Tinder match booom There you go now lets go on a date and fuck later lets fuck just nowThese are only 2 options from my experiences from the past 2,3 years
Yes very much. It’s a rarity but it still happens. I was that way when I met my wife. I courted her for a bit before I asked her out. Then we went slow and took a while to throw out the L word. Nothing sexual before marriage. Asked her father permission to marry her also
Sorry to sound ignorant but what does courting mean? I thought it meant dating but you said you courted her before you two started dating?
It’s basically getting to know them before actual dating
To my knowledge, no not anymore. The guy doesn't even pay for the first date anymore which is a shame. I don't want to date a guy who will ask me to pay for the first date. At least hold on to some gender roles because some guys today are acting like women it's crazy.
Hold on to all gender roles then. Don't just pick and choose which ones suit you better and shift the blame to the opposite gender.
What makes you deserving of a free meal?
@jeffbb26 what am I here? Chop liver? Lol what makes him deserving of a free meal?
@Ripper_E oh yeah I hold onto all gender roles. Of course that's how I was raised.
I doubt it. The numbers of people going fr online dating is rising. Also most people are no longer into the cheesy stuff, maybe they like it in the movie but its just embarrassing when u do it in reality
LOL. I only chuckle because I don't think attacking a girl and trying to have sex in an open convertible top in a crowded drive in (per the scene in Grease) is what exemplifies "old fashioned" dating.
I was lazy in grabbing a photo. But the happy days era is what I was going for!
It still does in my book. When I have even a date with a friend of the opposite sex, I make sure I look respectable and presentable. Being a gentleman has always been priority.
In Fantasy land maybe, LOL!!! I think maybe there?
Yes it happens but very very little. Most girls don't like men who ask them on dates I've noticed. Everyone usually wonders why im single because I am very attractive but most girls just try to fuck me all the time. I ask a girl out to dinner and she says no, but then she calls me at 2am and says im drunk can i come to your house. Ugh its disgusting.
You mean without internet and cellphones. Hell no. People lost the balls to date and find people without them.
Old-fashioned? You mean waiting around until your marriage is picked for you by your parents, until then, sneaking out to have illicit sex? I don't think so.
If I run into a girl like the one in that picture, then hell yes it's going to happen. O_OOtherwise, no. I haven't been on an old-fashioned date in years.
it's so cute! but also respectable!! i think it does though its not the majority? at least in young people
Yes my boyfriend took me in his car to the hill in the forest. Dating couples have been screwing there since the car was invented.
Old fashioned or old school? I still do traditional things while on a date so for our age group it still exists
I wish but at the same time I don’t want corporal punishment for falling in love as it was back then.
Bullshit, it’s being pushed on tv and movies in Hollywood that it’s being normal to swing and just hook up now. Pay attention
In a way. . . ice cream dates and movie dates still seem to be common, for example
Old-fashioned of something never changes. Old fashion love is still rocking.
No because most girls sleep around and date black guys so we really don't respect them anymore
Before I got with my boyfriend we used to go on all kinds of dates and still do! You’ve just got to find time, effort and obviously the right person!
To be fair Greasers weren't known for their "old fashioned" dating. Fonzie being a great example.
I hope it still exists because I want to be courted by a man like a princess of ancient times one day :)
YES of course because I live in India.
is there a hook up culture in India? Just curious?
@coachTanthonyReally curious? Read this article. edtimes.in/.../
@being_a_good_indian So is the article true about Delhi and Bombay? And do you live in either city?
Nah I live in popular city but not in this cities. Where I live dating is common but casual sex isn't.
It is true about Mumbai and Delhi
@being_a_good_indian Do either of those cities interest you to move to in the future? Those cities sound like they are the place to be in my opinion.
Casual sex is common everywhere across India. But it's "popular" only in the metro cities.
@coachTanthonyI might not because I had given commitment to my mentor that I will not leave my region but both the cities have it's own pros and cons. I agree with @YourFutureEx
My fiance's sister met her boyfriend getting drunk in South Boston. Now they live together. It still happens.
Of course it does. You can call it anything you like, but when two people are romantically attracted to each other and spend time getting to know, that's what dating is.
Yes it does. But, I don't waste my time dating if it won't go anywhere.
You mean when women didn't do a damn thing and expected men to plan and pay for everything? Yeah they still expect that.
It does happen, just not as much as it did.Simples...
It is pretty much gone and that is a good thing. On dates, men and women should learn to be responsible for their own food because they are not married so his money is not her money and her money is not his money.
I really don't know dating changes 1 day to next but I asume some still are old fashion
It’s sad but a lot of millennials have fallen into the unfaithful lifestyle and confusion of postmodernism being normal. I mostly feel for their kids.
Millennials are having less sex than their boomer parents did in the sixties
@slatyb because they are all 28, 29, and 30 years old still living at home! LOL
@slatyb It’s not about the sex, it’s about being faithful. Boomers did it but stayed in their zones 😂
No the boomers had more sex and more sex partners.
Sure they are. There is a shortage of affordable housing because of single family zoning. They are paying off college loans their parents never had.
Never been on a date, as I have no need to look for one.
This ain’t the 1970s boi I got a PlayStation
When I was your age I had a bike that I rode all day long. We didn't play video games. Stay in shape boi... your future self will thank you.
I also have a pull up bar I got a chest and traps of steel
Yes it does at least in my world
Wow okay cool!
Wowgirl actually 🙂
I take women out on proper dates all the time, I bring them to a fancy restaurant first then I drive us to an area with a nice view that we can just hangout and talk then I go for the kiss and next thing you know she’s back at my place naked lol
Coming from a Grease fan:That picture depicts a scene that accurately symbolizes modern dating today. Danny is such a pig 😂
What will they sayyyy Monday at school? Saaaaaaandyy
Yes it still happens it's way cuter and meaningful that today dating
I meet my boyfriend in high school at a dance. That is pretty much old fashioned style
Yes, it does, at least where I live. Coffee dates, ice cream, movies, dinner, or even taking a stroll on the street are still very common dates.
Looks like they had Netflix and chill back then too!
Yes of course. Me and my partner had an 6 month dating phase
That's what I do. I won't even kiss on a first date.
The bases of it still exists, but the world around it is different. Still food, walks, movies and so on.
Yes it does, but maybe a bit less now in the US because of tinder.
Yes, I treat my girlfriend like the princess she is. Gifts, flowers.. I'm an old school romantic.
Yes because cheap no need to think more suitable and romantic. Sometime get off my mine about city
If the girl takes control of the situation, then it can. Too many boys can't be trusted to be "old fashioned" and respectful.
Quit dating d bags
I've met gals in coffee shops, and while I didn't date them all, I did date some.
Yeah I miss the good old days when I could buy a woman for two goats and a cow.
confession→ textbreakup→ text so yea its goone people hide behind phones or pcs
