Dating in the '80s

I not a believer in wishing time away but thank goodness February is done and it's March! And this March is special because I'm celebrating my 25th Wedding Anniversary.

This means we starting dating in the '80's. I'm not going to lie, I miss the eighties. Big hair, shoulder pads, tight and bright clothing. Flashdance, Back to the Future, Beverly Hills Cop,  Oh my gosh, remember The Blue Lagoon! That was our 50 Shades of Grey. One of my personal all time favourites - Bull Durham. Of course, Ferris Buehler's Day Off.


Dirty Dancing! How I loved Patrick Swayze. 


What I learned from the movies? Make the most of a situation, even a bad one!


Dating in the '80's was nothing like dating now. It was Pre-eHarmony and Match dot com. You could in fact miss a call. Or if you still lived at home, your mom might answer. Or worse, your dad. Your amount of privacy was determined by the length of the phone cord. You either never heard from the other person again or you broke up in person. There was no sexting. No sharing of your relationship status with the whole world. You let people know by holding hands in public (this could be a small town thing). You went out on a date - the guy came to the door. Or your dad came out while and your mom watched from the front window.

Here's the flash fiction version of my fairy tale. Two people got married. Holy crap were they young. The story continues.



What are your dating memories?

Happy Anniversary!!

Yeah, dating in the 80s for me wasn't good. For the most part, I was a social leper and then I made some horrendous choices. I still love the 80s, though. Or maybe it's just nostalgia and missing being young.

Great post, though. =o)

Thanks, B.E.! Believe me, you're not alone in the horrendous choices department. Every once in awhile it's nice to take a trip down memory lane. Next I'll have to talk about the music!

Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
