10 Long-Lost Dating Tactics That We Ought To Bring Back

Many of us are too young to know about old-fashioned dating habits. If you have watched old movies, you know that men used to call a lady to ask her on a date several days prior. Once date night arrives, he would arrive all dressed up at her door with a bouquet of flowers, and take her to the movies.

What would happen if old-fashioned dating habits came back in style?

#1. Let’s try getting picked up at the door, without the texting or calling to say “I’m outside”, but actually getting out of the car and walking to the door. It only takes a minute and it makes all the difference in the world.

#2. How about bringing a small gift or flowers? It is thoughtful, kind, and a small gesture to show affection. It shows that you care if you do not show up empty handed.

#3. Do you dress up for a date? Not necessarily formal, but at least wear nice clothes and put effort into your appearance. Wear the special dress you’ve been saving or a new shirt.  You should dress to impress.

#4. You should try asking someone out on a REAL date. That means a telephone call, none of this “meet you there” or “let’s hand out” and certainly, no texting either.

#5. Why not open the car door for your date? It’s a charming gesture and will surely get your date’s attention.

#6. Make sure you introduce your date to your friends.  If you are out on a date and you see an old friend who you want to chat with, ALWAYS introduce your date. It is just plain rude if you don’t.

#7. Never expect sex. A person may flirt with you and really like you, but that doesn’t mean the two of you will be having sex. Never assume it and always be respectful.

#8. Lose the cell phone. No one dared to use the phone when you were a kid eating at the dinner table. You need to be able to communicate to the person we’re with.

#9. Maybe send a homemade card to show you care. Write a poem or song, paint something, or give a little handmade gift. This is a great way to let the person know you’re thinking about them.

#10. Be clear on where you stand with one another. People tend to be a little shy when it comes to asking, but it needs to be known after spending time together. Are we exclusive? Are we seeing other people?
