He might even meet her parents if she still lived at home.
Then he would actually take her somewhere, such as to dinner, and he would spend money, his own money, on her.
This intrigued the listener, who wanted me to expand on this just a bit and what if anything she could do to get the twenty-somethings in her family (both male and female) to start dating again.
Here is something of the response I penned: Yes, I suppose it was on EWTN Radio’s Open Line show on Valentine’s Day that you heard me. The culture of course is dismal today when it comes to meeting someone and doing something we used to call “dating.” I was telling the young people at that Theology on Tap meeting that, back when I was in high school and college, we used to do something called “dating.” This strange and currently little-known behavior involved a young man picking up the phone, or perhaps asking a girl in person, to go on something known as “a date.” This involved an actual activity such as the two of them having dinner together, or going to a movie together, or perhaps some other function (as in just the two of them).
He was then supposed to bring her back to her own home at a reasonable time.
Here some some statistics about young people who use online dating to consider if you’re thinking about giving it a try.
Are people just using it for hook ups, or do people actually start relationships after meeting online?
How many people actually go on a date with someone they meet online, or are they just using it to make conversation with others? Don’t worry; these are valid questions that many people wonder about online dating.
To me, there is no difference between online dating and regular dating, people are people and dating is dating.
A radio listener recent wrote me about an interview I did on EWTN Radio with Barbara Mc Guigan.
