Dating like 1960s Free sexy live chat viva sri lanka
Our friends at The Gloss took a closer look at the decade.
Teenage dating nearly fifty years ago was very different from the social practices of today.
But we rarely think about what it was like beyond that, and how different things were in other eras.
From World War II to the baby boom, there was a lot going on in the 1940s.
He was expected to pay for the movie tickets and any after movie refreshments.
Because the boy had paid, it was presumed the boy had the right to hold the girl’s hand or put his arm around her during the movies.
If Sunday youth club had gone well a girl would sit waiting near the phone all week, hoping the boy of her choice would call.
If her parents happened to take the phone call, she would try and act disinterested, hoping the call was for her.
A local band played and we danced the afternoon away.The ritual involved washing and setting their hair in curlers to get the big bouffant look of the 60s.Then finger nails had to be painted and clothes put out ready.Girls were also advised that they should not appear more intelligent or more knowledgeable than their date. The dating boundaries and consequences of pushing those boundaries were understood by all. In many places formal dating seems to be a thing of the past.
This is a shame as it was where teenagers learned a lot about growing up.Most teenage dates happened on Saturday nights and were usually to the movies or a local dance.
