Telephone dating etiquette

Behavior patterns are generally unwritten and constantly changing.

A few centuries ago, dating was sometimes described as a "courtship ritual where young women entertained gentleman callers, usually in the home, under the watchful eye of a chaperone," but increasingly, in many Western countries, it became a self-initiated activity with two young people going out as a couple in public together.

Still, dating varies considerably by nation, custom, religious upbringing, technology, and social class, and important exceptions with regards to individual freedoms remain as many countries today still practice arranged marriages, request dowries, and forbid same-sex pairings.

Although in many countries, movies, meals, and meeting in coffeehouses and other places is now popular, as are advice books suggesting various strategies for men and women, in other parts of the world, such as in South Asia and many parts of the Middle East, being alone in public as a couple with another person is not only frowned upon but can even lead to either person being socially ostracized.

With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.

Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.

    we were talking in the water for a short while, and out know where i relized she was missing a arm. She cought my double take, and told me not to worry..." it dosent hurt". I did date a young woman in high school who lost a leg from the knee down and eventually used a prosthetic leg. The leg was pinned under a munched dash board to long and didn't survive. We even wound up dating again for about 5 months until she went off to college.
