A brief history of online dating
Women became less concerned with a man's status and more about his likelihood of survival.
In the most recent decades and in the beginning of the 21st century, it has become clear that dating has evolved dramatically.
The world of dating in America has changed dramatically over the last century.
Some may argue that in today's society, it is nonexistent and has been replaced by what many young people refer to as "hooking up." With the advent of new technologies (e.g., cell phones, instant messaging, video chatting, etc.) and the changing definitions of traditional dating and families, "dating" has become a more open and self-interpreted institution over the century.
This new crowd activity replaced the typical date night that existed in the past.
People began to have more sexual encounters, due in large part to the newly acquired liberal attitudes that the birth control pill allowed.
As the twentieth century progressed, many young members of the upper class grew to dislike the "calling" style of dating and started rebelling by going on dates as did members of the lower class.
