Dating in the 1920s

dating in the 1920s-89

Miss Abigail has a collection of over 1,000 classic advice books, spanning from 1822 to 1978 and covering a variety of topics, from love and romance to etiquette and charm.

The collection sparked the idea for this site, then a book, Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage, which has inspired an Off-Broadway production of the same name!

The concept of dating really began at the turn of the 20th century.

Prior to the late early 1900s, courtship was a much more private, unemotional affair.

But each era of dating in the past century was not without its pros, its cons, and its own set of unspoken rules.
