Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other. These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations. This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement. [1] [2] Some cultures require people to wait until a certain age to begin dating, which has been a source of controversy.

Generally, during much of recorded history of humans in civilization, and into the Middle Ages in Europe , weddings were seen as business arrangements between families, while romance was something that happened outside of marriage discreetly, such as covert meetings. [7] The 12th-century book The Art of Courtly Love advised that "True love can have no place between husband and wife." [7] According to one view, clandestine meetings between men and women, generally outside of marriage or before marriage, were the precursors to today's dating. [7]

There are now more than 500 businesses worldwide that offer dating coach services—with almost 350 of those operating in the U.S. And the number of these businesses has surged since 2005" [37] " Frequency of dating varies by person and situation; among singles actively seeking partners, 36% had been on no dates in the past three months, 13% had one date, 22% had two to four dates and 25% had five or more dates, according to a 2005 U.S. survey.

Even though you have checked it, in the hope that your maternal grandmother arrived at the Port of New York, and was processed through Ellis Island, I searched the Ellis Island database for any ship s passenger record for her. http://www.ellisisland.org You can search and view the Ellis Island records for free. You just need to register (free) with the site. I found the following information that MAY or MAY NOT be for your maternal grandmother: First Name: Katarzyna Last Name: Hawal Ethnicity: Austria, Austrian Last Place of Residence: Grodonstza, Austria Date of Arrival: Mar 02, 1909 Age at Arrival: 18y Gender: F Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Noordam Port of Departure: Rotterdam, Holland Source: (Click on the link for her name) http://www.ellisisland.org/search/matchMore.asp?MID=15554803050938424736&LNM=HAWAL&PLNM=HAWAL&first_kind=1&kind=exact&offset=0&dwpdone=1 Note: The 1911 arrival year info that has been passed down with the family history may not be correct. Also, the image of the actual ship manifest indicates her final destination was Cleveland, Ohio. Grodonstza may be a mis-spelling of Horodnica, which is in Galicia, which was part of the Austrian Empire prior to World War II. The location was also known as: Gorodnitsa [Russian name], Horodnica [Polish name], Horodnystya [Ukrainian name], and Horodnycja. The region known as Galicia is currently in parts of Poland and Ukraine. From 1873 until World War I, Galicia was a province of Austria-Hungary (Austria.) My guess that Grodonstza may be a mis-spelling of Horodnica, is just that - a guess, based on information I found on a Jewish genealogy web site: JewishGen: http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~jgcd (Note: I m not saying she was Jewish. It s just a good web site to find other spellings of place names in Eastern Europe.) It is a location where both Polish and Russian were spoken. You can also search other possible spellings of her last name on ship s manifests on the Ellis Island site here: http://www.ellisisland.org/search/wsese_02a.asp?MID=15554803050938424736&LNM=HOWAI&PLNM=HOWAI&first_kind=1&last_kind=0&town_kind=0&ship_kind=0&TOWN=null&SHIP=null&RF=0& I found only one other ship s passenger list entry for arrival at the Port of New York that MAY or MAY NOT be for her - Kath. Elizabeth Huwa, arrived Oct 27, 1913, last place of residence: Gololobowka, Russia. She may have arrived upon a ship that did not dock at the Port of New York and therefore was not processed as an immigrant through Ellis Island. Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore were also ports of entry. Given the challenges of name spelling and the possible languages of her home area in "Austria," you may not be able to find any more information on your maternal grandmother for the time she arrived in the USA and before that, I m sorry to say.

Websites aren t going to help you until you get a better grasp on the actual parts of Poland and the former empire of Austria-Hungary where your ancestors lived. The reason, simply enough, is that to find the records from THEN, you have to figure out where THERE is NOW. Slovakian in particular is quite a tumultuous piece of the map. But the good news is that the vast majority of people leaving that part of Central Europe (it s not Eastern.missed that by several hundred miles) didn t allow very much emigration before 1900. In 1905 the immigration rules changed dramatically and anyone who hadn t been in the country for 5 years had to fill out new "long forms". They got extremely detailed. In particular they tell you where your ancestors were born (town and all), who their parents were, what ship brought them to the US, which port they landed at and the date. The records are very much available to you and are immeasurably valuable to finding the right records. Start at the National Archives website. For about $60 you ll find more than you ll find on the internet in a year. http://www.archives.gov The next place to look, but you need the actual names of your ancestors for it to be helpful because there are so many transcription errors, is the Ellis Island database. They ll also give you good clues, but you need to keep the differences in the pre-WWI map of Europe from the current map of Europe. It s possible your idea of Slovakia is actually part of modern-day Montenegro, Slovenia or Ukraine. While that map has changed a dozen dramatic times, the good news is that the records are sitting there in the towns and haven t on the most part been terribly damaged. The only records that are sadly and irreplacably missing are the passenger records out of Bremenhaven, where many of your Polish ancestors may have left. But while the records on the German side are gone, the American records are very well kept. So you re working from the receiving end instead of the sending end. Your Polish ancestry will be pretty straight forward. Figure out if they were Prussian (the majority of Prussians emigrated between 1865-1885), Galician (early 1880s to early 1900s) or East Prussians (Russian Poles or Carpathians.sometimes now considered Lithuanian). The Russian Poles were the last to be allowed to leave and most didn t start coming over until the early 1900s. While their records are in disarray, the American records on this group is the strongest and most in-depth. For your Polish ancestry, start with the Polish Genealogy Society of America in Chicago. Their databases, library and volunteer researchers are invaluable. They re also related to the Polish National Union and they re fluent in all of the dialects throughout the region. http://www.pgsa.org/ If you find out that your Polish ancestors were from Prussia, the odds are high that they re both Catholic and from the Posnan region. That area is the lucky recipient of some serious multi-national marriage record indexing right now. The project is long from done, but it s amazing how much has been put online already and how much more is still coming online everyday. http://bindweed.man.poznan.pl/posen/search.php If you need any help getting a sense of direction on actual lines, let me know through my profile. I ve been researching in the region for about 25 years and I love it. I also speak the language fairly well and know the changes in the map and the geo-political maneuvering pretty well. I also have access to a few researchers in the region who can be contacted for a little more help.
