Teen dating in the present

Besides, dating allowed young people to be with each other without their parents interfering.Secondly, the control of the relationship changed hands as the transition was made.After all, most children know about dating long before they are actually ready to participate in it (Merrill 61).

Millions of teenagers in the 1950's went on one or more dates per week. If a girl of thirteen years had not started dating yet, she was considered a "late bloomer" by societies standards (Bailey 48).Dating essentially replaced the practice of calling which was the primary way of courtship before the mid-1920's.When a man "calls" upon a woman, he usually shows up at her house during an "at home" session and presents his card to the maid who then gives it to the young lady.Calling and dating are so intrinsically different it is hard to imagine how the transition from one to another was even made.Firstly, calling was practiced with the intention of finding a suitable husband for a young lady; whereas, in dating, this was, and still is, not the primary goal.
