Dating rules for boys
Acknowledging that there are many variations, let’s take a look at some Amish dating customs The Setup Amish courtship traditionally begins at age 16 for the boys and age 14-15 for the girls.
To find someone to date you have to go where the action is.
Depending on your moves and all-around charm, you might just share that one dance, or you might even spend the night together.

Try not to get offended or assume that he’s not into you if he doesn’t bring you flowers, if he doesn’t hold the door up for you, if he doesn’t pay for the movie or if he doesn’t offer to walk you home.
Instead, he will always respect you and he will never assume that you are weak or bad at something just because you’re a girl.
To keep the conversation non-datish, the subjects you talk about are usually very neutral ones such as the housing market, Stockholm versus Gothenburg, how great your i Phones are, or how much the public transportation system irritates you (actually, the Swedish public transportation system is among the best ones in the world).

I might add that texting is the preferred channel of communication with Swedish guys.

Amish dating customs provide young Amish adults with a means of finding a lifelong partner while following the rules of the church.
The Amish socialize at functions like visits, frolics, and church.
