Dating table manners
-Are you too critical of other people in the group?
-Do you continually find fault with the arrangements for the parties the group plans? -Does saying, " I told you so" give you satisfaction?
It is not proper for a girl to invite a boy into the house for any length of time if a parent or another responsible adult is not at home.
" "My friend Bill is taking Kathy and we'll be going in his car." Sally, in turn, didn't embarrass Mark by hesitating while she figured out whether or not she wanted to go with him, or whether she had anything to wear, but she answered right away, "Thank you Mark, I'd love to go with you." Mark thus followed two of the rules of dating etiquette in inviting Sally to the dance: First, he called her far enough in advance; second, he told her what the plans were for the date.
Since Sally had accepted the invitation, she did not change her mind the next day when Sam asked her to go to the dance.
She should present the boy to her parents, saying, "Mother and Dad, this is ______." Together they should decide when to return after the date.
The wishes of the parents in this manner must be respected.
Don't be late in arriving at the girl's home Don't fail to show courtesy to the girl by helping her on with her coat, etc. If the boy has the use of a car for the date, he escorts the girl to the car and opens the door for her before getting in.
