When I was in High School in the 70s, dates consisted of a meal and an entertainment. The girls wore dresses or skirts and the boys wore a tie. The boy came to the door and picked the girl up. The boys paid and the girls had some money in case of an emergency.
What is dating like today with nice conscientious boys? My daughter will soon be 15. She has a "date" to homecoming. They each paid for their own tickets and will meet at the dance. How is this different than just meeting up with friends? What should I expect? DH says that it is not a date unless the boy pays.
