February 15, 2016


It's a sad fact of college life today that most kids don't even know what it means to go on a date. 

So the Love and Fidelity Network is promoting its "BringDatingBack campaign, first launched last year.  Posters are being distributed to college campuses with specific tips about dating.

Here are some ideas in the "How to Ask Someone Out" category:

Say "Hello."  Confidence is key!

Relax.  They're humans too.

Ask in person.  (Or Pick. Up. The. Phone.)

And under "How to Treat Your Date Right" here are some suggestions:

Be Punctual.

Put the phone away!

Ask questions. Be interested, not nosey.


"We've heard from students so many times over the years that most people on campus – those engaged in the hookup culture and those who have already chosen to forgo it – simply don't know how to go on a date," Caitlin La Ruffa, Love and Fidelity Network executive director, told the Catholic News Agency.  Hence the practical tips!

The Love and Fidelity Network is a national program to promote the importance of marriage, the integrity of human sexuality and the special role of the family to college students.  Founded in Princeton in 2007, it now boasts 38 chapters on college campuses around the country.

You can read the CNA report here.

And check out the #BringDatingBack page on the Love & Fidelity Network's website here.

Salvo has covered the hookup culture – from what's behind it to its consequences.  We recommend our interview with the author of "How to Stay Christian in College," J. Budziszewski, in "Wise Man On Campus" and "Free Love Is Neither: Liberation Fatigue & the New Sexual Renegades."
