Think dating is weird these days? The Frisky has found dating customs from the olden days that are sure to rival today's sexting, online dating and the rest. Ever heard of bundling? Apparently, it's a practice that was popular in 16th- and 17th-century Europe and North America, where couples would hang out—just hang out—in bed together, but separated by a divider, so they couldn't actually touch. Oh, and armit apples...we'll let The Frisky explain that one.
