The other day, I was sitting on a train and noticed something strange about a couple sitting near me. I was disgusted and amazed to see the woman casually stick her finger in his ear and then wipe her findings on her pants. I don’t think this strange social grooming is an okay thing to do. In my opinion, this symbolizes the step backward we have taken in the evolution of dating.
Many things have changed in dating over the years, such as the words we use. We now call it a hot date, but with a twinkle in her eye, my grandma still calls it “stepping out.”
Dating evolution brought us to “courting,” but since then, we have digressed to the words “going together” and now “going out.”
Back in times of courting, the dating scene was simple but now the dating world is complicated and confusing.
