Going Steady | Vintage 1950’s Dating Guide for Girls and Boys

YouTube Poster

A 1950’s high school girl considers dating exclusively, and a lot of folks have something to say about that!
Interestingly, a study in the 1940’s showed a majority of young peers approved of going steady, while a majority of parents disapproved of the practice. The term ‘going steady’, was commonly used to describe exclusive dating in a young romantic relationship. The term fell out of use after the 1970’s.

This film was created by Coronet Films, a long defunct company who specialized in instructional guidance films from the 1940’s up to the 1970’s.
