Pros of Old Fashioned Dating
People could get to know each other before they were labeled an item.
The physicality of the relationship went slower.
Both parties were less embarrassed to actually go out on a date.
No double standards regarding girls seeing more than one guy or vise versa.
More dates! How often do you actually get to go out on a date with your significant other?
Chivalry. Enough said, the men had to compete, so they were much more like gentlemen than this honking the horn from the driveway to pick you up business.
No technology! Amazing honestly. No "tone" over a text message, no break ups over the phone, etc. They had to actually communicate back then.
One night stands were seldom.
It cost less money. (I guess that's probably due to inflation, but hey it's still a positive).
Double dates were way more popular.
They showed these educational videos in school!
I guess I just fantasize about what it would've been like to grow up in a different era. I think that I would've loved to be "wooed" by Christopher. But either way I am happy with him. And I should write a disclaimer saying that none of the above mentioned tidbits are targeted towards Christopher. We have had a quite old fashioned courtship and not once did he honk at me from the driveway.
