For this reason, the history of dating tends to be quite different for the LGBT population.In the first decade of the twentieth century, men "called upon" young women whom they fancied by (with the permission of her parents) visiting her home.Women would only accept date invitations from men with money and gifts and tried to refrain from being seen with the same boy too often.
Therefore, people became open to having sexual experiences and accepting their inner desires.
Since lower-class families did not have the resources to entertain potential suitors in their home, many couples began leaving the house to spend time together.
Thus, the phrase "going out on a date" became popularized.
This time period is said to mark the end of the dating era, and the beginning of the "hookup" culture.
Many young adults on college campuses began partying and experimenting with alcohol and psychedelic drugs in large groups.
