Dating in 1960 sailing dating singles

When calling was practiced, the female in the relationship held most of the power because men came to see house with her parents present.

But when dating replaced calling, the males held most of the power, for they paid for the date, drove the automobiles, and came by the girl's house only to pick her up.

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.

So they initial shyness of young couple can be eased away by the presence of other company, especially if the double date was a "set-up" or a blind date for one couple.

After double dating, you would naturally move onto single dating.

The 1950's set up precedents in dating that led to what many consider "normal" dating today.

Calling and dating are so intrinsically different it is hard to imagine how the transition from one to another was even made.

Firstly, calling was practiced with the intention of finding a suitable husband for a young lady; whereas, in dating, this was, and still is, not the primary goal.

Before the war, "going steady" was a stage young people took only if they were seriously on the path to marriage; however, after the war, the phrase was used more loosely.

It no longer signaled that the couple was marriageable and ready to commit (Bailey 49).
