something really really old fogies used to say instead of ‘dating’. Noone youger than my great grandpa uses this word anymore - except for Darwin!
i'm taking my girl to the drive in and the milk bar during our courtship. Then maybe if i play my cards right, she might lift her peticoat and show me her knees.

A time in which people will get to know each other better - used in place of dating. During courtship, people spend time with their partner's family as well as private time with their partner to make sure that they're aiming towards marriage.
I'd rather be courted and engaged in courtship, then be dated, used for an evening and be on the dating scene.
