Dating in the Amish world is actually pretty similar to regular dating as we know it. The only difference is the amount of supervision required. A young Amish man will typically meet his future spouse at a youth group function like Sunday singing. He’ll drive her home in his buggy, and then the couple will exchange letters and see each other on weekends.

They’ll date for about a year before the man asks the woman to get married. The man has to ask her parents’ approval first, of course.
