Dating in 1950 s
Nowadays, it does not matter who asks first, but back then it was very different. If a girl asked for a date, her peers generally thought poorly of her.Couples in the fifties were not able to text or Facebook message each other like couples today.
And by May we broke down in each other’s arms saying goodbye in a bus terminal because I had to go back to America.There was a cold realization that time was running out with every day. And instead of being overcome with sadness we chose to not think about it. I think you fall in love with people in the intimate moments you share whether it’s physical or emotional.We chose to value each other and value every day we did have. It was in every late night conversation where we might have had one beer too many. Drive-in movie theaters, soda shops, and school dances were all part of the standard high school dating ritual. If you have seen Grease, you probably think you have a pretty clear picture of what dating was like in the 1950s.
