Sweaty Apples, Dance Cards & Dainty Gloves — Dating Rituals From Days Of Yore
The Dai ethnic group in China have an elaborate courting thing involving spinning wheels and froofy skirts. The women will sit around a bonfire with their spinning wheels and the men of the village come and serenade them. If a woman sees a guy she particularly likes, she pulls a stool from underneath her skirts and offers it to him. If he likes her, he puts a blanket over her shoulders. So much fabric involved.
