It's not terrorism, economic recession, global warming or gasoline prices that could hit per gallon by the time you're done reading this.
These things might worry you, but something else makes your palms sweat and your pulse hit triple digits: asking someone out on a date.
It started a lot of conversations and sold a lot of books, but the concept was more popular than the practice. Courtship mini-movements still surface from time to time. Below the niceties and the hands-off approach to premarital romance, courtship has an ugly history.Be honest and direct about your intentions when you start dating someone. For those who prefer an equal-opportunity approach to dating, try letting him pay now and then (or at least hold the door for you) without being deeply offended.Many men like to feel they're leading the way, even if you know you secretly have the upper-hand. In more conservative circles, pastors and parents act as matchmakers.BTW: You may be using the word date but not necessarily have the same understanding as this definition.If you say you date but don’t do what I define as dating, then you are practicing courting, although you might still use the term dating.
