Rules of blind dating
Photo Day (September 14th) – couples take a photo together and put it somewhere nice to look at.
Green Day (August 14th) – couples enjoy a natural place, whilst drinking soju (in a green bottle).
Yet, what I can do is lay down some ground rules for men going on blind dates.1. As a rule, a traditional Korean woman carried a small silver knife. It’s interesting to watch American films emphasizing the 3-date-rule, because really? Of course, this is generalization and there are variations, but the main point is that although the ideology of sex is changing rapidly, mostly due to media, there’s still a stigma on girls having sex before marriage. The “proper” women must remain chaste, and the requirements of being chaste are utterly crazy. There is no dating agency but the market for marriage agencies are growing continuously. However, economic hardship discourages marriage, and divorce rates have increased in Tehran to around a quarter of marriages,  even though divorce is taboo.
The history of dating systems is closely tied to the history of technologies that support them, although a statistics-based dating service that used data from forms filled out by customers opened in Newark, New Jersey in 1941.
