Where you went out on a date in the 1980s wasn’t that much different than it is today. You could head to the movies, go out for dinner, go roller skating, or go to the park for a picnic. What made the 1980s better than now though was that you’d get to see classic movies at the cinema like Footloose and Back to the Future, and dance to "It’s Raining Men" with your date at the disco - it was great fun!
Dating in the 1980s was simple and you certainly wouldn’t be worrying about ghosting, catfishing and online trolls. Meeting someone new started in real life - the best way to find true love.
