10 Important Dating Tips From Our Grandparents

The dating scene has changed a lot over the years

Things have changed a lot over the last century, especially in the dating world. The rise of equal rights and the creation of modern marvels like Tinder means that dating someone in 2016 is so different from dating someone in 1916. Still, there are some things that never change, and our grandparents have lent us some relevant relationship advice in the list below.

1. If a man asks a woman out, he should pay.

It’s an old-fashioned idea, but some old-fashioned ideas aren’t all that bad. If a guy offers to pay for a date, it at least shows that he has a respectful, gallant side and is prepared to be a gentleman.

2. Good partners are able to laugh at themselves.

The older generations have learned from experience and they know how important humor can be. When times get tough, people need to be able to laugh at themselves in order to break the ice and keep on going.

3. Listen to your heart, not your friends.

Listening to what everyone else is saying and acting based on the things you hear is a surefire way to ruin a relationship. Your friends and family can offer advice, but only you know how you truly feel. Listen to your heart if you want to make the right decisions.
