Haha, I didn't think you were that old, or any of you.

I always pictured you all as mid 30's or so. I don't think I'm missing by a long shot, not sure at all. :smile:

I just mentionned the date of the book. :tongue2:

I believe the whole going steady thing died in the mid 80's. Not sure, because I wasn't really around then either. :biggrin:

I like the idea of going steady much better. It's more casual, and from reading the book... much cuter!
Okay, you're off the hook. "Going steady" was still going steady in the 80s, but I don't really know when it faded out of existence as a big deal since I was hitting that age when people were starting to pair up for long-term relationships and marriage anyway, so didn't take notice that the younger generation had undergone such a shift in dating activity. Now the term "dating" seems to have replaced "going steady," so it's confusing to distinguish between going on a date or dates vs. dating.
