Besides, dating allowed young people to be with each other without their parents interfering.
Secondly, the control of the relationship changed hands as the transition was made.
Since the turn of the century, there has been a greater freedom between men and women, for example, both attend the same schools with the same classes.
Both sexes become accustomed to the other at early ages which is very conducive to the practice of dating (Merrill 61).
But because the lower classes were not so well-endowed so that they own pianos or even parlors, they started their own form of "courtship" which soon became known as dating.
This practice was soon picked up by the upper classes, and from there it progressed into the middle class, with which it is still inherently associated today (Bailey 17).
Dating essentially replaced the practice of calling which was the primary way of courtship before the mid-1920's.
When a man "calls" upon a woman, he usually shows up at her house during an "at home" session and presents his card to the maid who then gives it to the young lady.
Then again, few other countries have the same social conditions as America.She then is given the option of accepting his call by letting him in or rejecting it by making up an excuse as to why she cannot see him.Refreshments were often served (though not always), and the entertainment was primarily piano playing in the parlor.Dating had actually been around for a while before the 1950's, but since the presence of the teenager became ever more prevalent and public, dating became more and more popular and routinized.Millions of teenagers in the 1950's went on one or more dates per week. If a girl of thirteen years had not started dating yet, she was considered a "late bloomer" by societies standards (Bailey 48).
