Dating, calling, courtship, or what ever you want to call it varies from one Amish community to the next.
For most a boy will take a girl home (to her home) after the Sunday evening hymn singing and stay to visit for several hours.
Others have their dates on Saturday nights.
Some communities allow their dating couples to have a date every week, while others are only allowed to see each other every other week.
Some allow dating to begin at sixteen, while others aren't allowed to until after their eighteenth birthday.
Some have an absolute hands off no touching rule while others are much more lenient. Some require what we used to refer to as rocking chair courtship where the boy would sit on a rocking chair with the girl on his lap, and then there are still a few Amish churches that practice bed courtship.
LV and I grew up in one of the strictest communities when it comes to dating rules. We could only see each other every other Sunday night. We were never allowed to ride in a buggy together after we started our courtship, touching was not allowed. Dates were to be three hours long, max. Beginning at nine and ending at midnight. They discouraged long courtships and expected couples to marry somewhere between one and two years after they had their first date.
