For this reason, the history of dating tends to be quite different for the LGBT population.
In the early days of dating, many LGBT couples had to keep their relationships a secret for fear of being public stigmatized.
The two would spend time together, usually with the supervision of her parents so that they may get to know each other on an intellectual and emotional level.
The couple was rarely left alone, making sexual intimacy (and physical contact in general) nearly impossible.
During this period, a couple's dating hisory was typically defined as the period of time two people spend together (in an exclusive or nearly exclusive, nonsexual relationship) before marriage.
However, in today's society, dating can be seen as its own social relationship, with no ending point or specific destination (such as marriage) required.
This time period is said to mark the end of the dating era, and the beginning of the "hookup" culture.
