With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.
There was a time when a proper young man and woman could not speak to each other unless they had been formally introduced. On the other hand, I understand from my patients that it is considered bad manners now for young people to date someone who has previously dated one of their friends.The boat of a pharaoh was discovered in a sealed crypt and reassembled in a museum near the pyramids (see Fig. The age of our galaxy and earth also can be estimated using radioactive dating.Using the decays of uranium and thorium, our galaxy has been found to be between 10 and 20 billion years old and the earth has been found to be 4.6 billion years old. Within experimental error, this estimate agrees with the 15 billion year estimate of the age of the Universe.I remember a few girls who went out with as many as three of my friends without anyone thinking that they—or the men they dated—were behaving improperly.Back in those days—before computers, or portable phones, or, even, electric typewriters—the rules were different.The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
