What Would a "Permanent Record" for Dating Do? Would it Create a Sense of a Courtship Career?
I find that young people pay attention to their school and work history, because it creates a permanent record that others can, and sometimes do, check.
They pay less attention to their dating history - in part, I think, because there is no equivalent of a "permanent record."
What would happen if dating websites asked for a complete dating resume, including asking for explanations of gaps and omissions? Would students come to see that they have a courtship career that matters, in the same way that they have a school and work career with cumulative effect?
