Dating in college is different

I remember a few girls who went out with as many as three of my friends without anyone thinking that they—or the men they dated—were behaving improperly.

Back in those days—before computers, or portable phones, or, even, electric typewriters—the rules were different.

The second problem in responding to these advertisements was that some people thought doing so implied that they were desperate.

(See my reaction reported above.) No one wants to seem desperate.

The kind of dances performed then required holding each other, which put those of us who were shy at a disadvantage.
