Dating is going out alone with a boy or girl on a "date". Courting is a bit more of a formal process with guidelines. Like asking the father's permission, having chaperoned outings, no kissing, sometimes gifts for the family before dating the daughter, etc.

What does that mean? In the context of unmarried socialization, "courting" and "dating" are more or less exact synonyms, the former being the term of choice three or so generations ago.

Vort, no, that is not entirely correct. It is a more formal method of intermingling. Some LDS and many fundamentalist Christian families do not approach "dating" the way non-religious families do...which is, "hey, a guy is here to pick up my daughter...have fun honey, be home by 9"

Huh. Okay, I have nothing relevant to offer, I guess.

It's not "courting" in the modern context. I'm not arguing the point or definition, just saying that courting is a movement. If you don't know what it is as a movement, you are not right for this show. :)

I kinda know what this is, I've seen it done on Westerns that is set back in the late 1800's. Although I'm over 24....twice to be exact. So that leaves me out. :P
