Amish begin dating during their mid-to-late teens
During the period known as Rumspringa, beginning at about age 16, Amish youth enter a time of greater social activity. One of the purposes of Rumspringa is to find a mate.
Amish begin dating during this period, and most eventually find a “special friend”. Amish youth dating activities vary by community.
Amish youth may be discreet about their dating. Dating typically begins when a young man offers a young lady a ride home after the Sunday night singing.
Amish typically date for a period of a year or two before getting married. Like non-Amish, Amish may date multiple partners before finding that special someone.
