What was dating like in the 1940s

Was there still a mindset that if you were dating someone, you were probably going to marry them?

I would use this information for one of my stories which takes place in Poland, so if there were specific, unique dating practices in that country, I would greatly appreciate any information.

This isn’t a problem for Japanese men who usually will arrange a date at a very cheap cafe and still expect me to pay my share!

Anyways, these are the things that I have learned from dating men in America and these are very uniquely different experiences. Quite frankly I don’t think either of them is very effective.

One thing that is very different in Japan is that it is not uncommon for a woman to ask a man out.

Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.

I was young and naïve so it was a little scary in the beginning and I soon discovered the dating process in America is quite different from the one in Japan.

If you confess and she/he says yes, you two could be considered a couple.

In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.

If anyone knows of any answers to these questions and more, please post here.
