Elliott Bay Book Company says
That dating is someone in crisis is not anything new, says Moira Weigel. In her book, Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating, a lively history of sex and romance in America, she tells us that the first women who made dates with strangers were often arrested for prostitution and (long before hookup culture) there were petting parties, joyrides and parking.

“Weigel's smart, accessible, and illuminating examination of the evolution of dating from its beginnings to the age of OK Cupid and Tinder makes for fascinating reading.”-Booklist
