Old Fashioned Courting

Remembering how simple dating used to be.  Before email, text, and tv

Maybe for your grandparents…there was no online match site…or reality show where one guy dates 12 women at the same time…and that seems okay.

It’s interesting the same day there was a finale of one of those reality TV dating shows, I saw a story on the news about the opposite.  A long old fashioned romance that started with love letters.

A boy, noticed a girl who was quite the catch, and respectfully wrote her letters “courting” her. 

He said he loved “the sunshine of her smile”

In another one he said,  "nothing so fine ever happened to him or anyone else as falling in love with thee...my dearest heart.” 

Oh that’s good…the Bachelor never said that.

The girl finally agreed to see this romantic boy after that letter…and on the first date he asked her to marry her.   

She accepted and as they say the rest is history.  Richard and Pat Nixon were married for 53 years.
