We're in an era where modernity has changed the way romantic dates are done.

In this post, we look back at old-fashioned dating traditions and share thoughts about why we think today's dating crowd should still practice them.

Here they are:

1. Picking up the Girl at Her House

Wow,, you, really, went, all,

Remember rom-com movies in the '80s and the '90s when the guy actually picks up the girl at her parents' house?

Old fashioned?

Maybe...

But this time-tested tradition has that "official" feel to it knowing that the guy actually took time and effort to go to the house and 'start' the date from there.

Sure, there's nothing wrong with the let's-meet-at-the-theatre-around-seven set-up but admit it, having to open the door for someone to take you out to dinner is right up on the list of exciting things to expect on a first date and...

the succeeding dates too!

2. Asking Permission from the Parents

person, screenshot, interaction, I'd, like,

Once upon a time, the man was expected to ask permission from the woman's parents so he could take her out to dinner.

The entire itinerary of the date is discussed with the father and a curfew is set for him to take her back home in one piece.2

To some people, this may be too strict but hey, it worked during those times!

3. Calling Her on the Landline Phone

leg,

Back when there were no smart phones and social media was non-existent, guys called girls in their landline phones.

Sweaty palms and shaky voice characterize the nervous caller as the other line rings and he waits for someone to pick up the phone.

If he's lucky, then the girl herself answers the phone.

If fate plays tricks on him, then he needs to brace himself as the girl's father interrogates him about the purpose and intention of the call.
