October 10, 2008, Newsletter Issue #241: What Is Etiquette?

Tip of the Week

By definition etiquette is "conventional requirements as to proper social behavior." In our culture today, many of the 'proper social behaviors' are changing; however, observing dating etiquette is the polite thing to do, especially on a first date when you do not know the person's particular stand on 'proper social behavior.' In dating relationships, it is still considered polite for men to open doors for women, but going 'dutch' or taking turns paying for meals is more widely accepted. Both men and women now take turns making plans for the dates, and both are expected to contribute to the conversation, without one taking the lead. Once you know a person better, you can adapt the rules of dating etiquette to what works best for you and makes you the most comfortable together.
