I don’t think I finally called him until our fifth or sixth date. I’ve been married to my cute guy for a little over seven years. If for no other reason than it’s incredibly romantic.
Can you remember the last time a nice guy came up to you at a party and politely asked for your number without trying to grope you, ask you to come to his room to do shots, or do something else his mother certainly wouldn’t have approved of? Old-fashioned dating – or simply dating as it used to be called—is uncommon these days.Most of us are too young to know about old-fashioned dating habits. None of this “meet you there” or “hanging out.” I have girlfriends who tell me all the time… But if you’ve seen old movies, then you know men used to call a lady to ask her on a date several days before. I don’t mean wear a formal, but at least wear nice clothes and put some effort into your appearance. “no one ever asks them out on official dates…” It’s easy, you just call someone and ask them out on a date, or ask them in person.
