Dating

The earliest recorded use of the word girlfriend was in 1859: boyfriend dates back to 1822.

In the 18th century, colonial New England couples used a courting stick, a six-foot-long hollow tube, to talk without getting too close.

When the dating concept was invented in the 1910s, American women could be arrested for going on a date—police often mistook dating for prostitution.

In 1987, only 48% of Americans approved of interracial dating.

Each year November 11th has become an unofficial holiday in China known as Singles' Day when singles are encouraged to make an extra effort to find a partner.

1 in 4 relationships now start online.

The Sunday after New Year’s Day is the busiest time of the year for online dating.
