In honor of National Romance Month, we thought we would take a look at dating and courting rituals from around the world.
In Australia, singles spend more time in large groups, thereby getting to know one another in a safe, judgment-free situation. Even when a couple becomes exclusive, they tend to continue spend time together with their group of friends. Therefore, friends and their input remain an integral part of a couple’s relationship all the way up to marriage. In Paris, singles also seem to prefer running in groups. Individuals often rely on their friends to introduce them to a potential suitor. Not so in Italy, where romance is a high priority. Dates with a boyfriend or girlfriend typically include evening walks throughout the city. The Czech Republic is full of smaller villages which do not often contain a wide pool of dating possibilities, so many people in these regions opt for online dating as a means of meeting a mate.
