Dating will never again be as simple as it was 50 years ago. There was a step-by-step procedure that men followed in order to earn approval from the parents of the woman he was dating. With the reserved type of woman, men had difficulty in even just asking them for a date. It sounds crazy, but its true! This is the way it was so many years ago, but people in some parts of the world are still practicing that same type of dating routine. Even in the western countries, asking a girl for a date can be very difficult if she is very reserved and has a conservative family.
