Modern dating culture has evolved so dramatically from the days of courtship in the 50s and 60s that the dating terms used no longer seem applicable.Here’s a handy compilation of old school expressions and their modern-day interpretations. Wooing What it used to mean: Pursuing a romantic interest in a romantic way so you could get to know them better to see if there’s a meaningful future. For those who don’t know, Tinder is a new dating app that the youths are using on their phone. They didn't feel the need to announce their love to the world.
The blue Whatsapp ticks didn't exist, neither did Facebook chats. It was a sworn secret between the two of them the world didn't know about.When's the last time you actually TALKED to your crush on the phone? We may be freer than ever, we may love fearlessly and walk out of relationships when things don't work out, and that's great! They didn't have to call each other a dozen times every day. Lovers sent each other letters from far off places, and the efforts they put in to express their undying love was worth everything in the world. They didn't spend most oftheir times on their own smartphones or dates, they spent it actually talking to each other, getting to know each other or just staring into each other's eyes. It took time for people to get to know each other and with each passing day, their love stories took a new turn. Their love stories were legendary and our films are a proof of that.“Courting” used to be when a couple went on a date because of a romantic interest.Today, you're lucky if your crush texts you a “hey,” and you might as well pop champagne if he adds in an emoji.
