Dating vs going steady

After the second World War, teenagers became much more noticeable in America (Bailey 47).Their presence and existence became readily more apparent because they were granted more freedom than previous generations ever were. They were given a chance to redefine the ways things were done in America.Besides, dating allowed young people to be with each other without their parents interfering.Secondly, the control of the relationship changed hands as the transition was made.

Because of these entertainment forums, these images will continue to be a pop cultural symbol of the 1950's.Dating essentially replaced the practice of calling which was the primary way of courtship before the mid-1920's.When a man "calls" upon a woman, he usually shows up at her house during an "at home" session and presents his card to the maid who then gives it to the young lady.People date because it is "enjoyable, pleasant, and valuable" (Merrill 62), and they thought that they could gain rewarding experiences from it.In the fifties and surrounding decades, handbooks and other books exploring relationships described dating as a fun activity in which teens are allowed to meet and mingle with many members of the opposite sex.
