DATING TIPS FOR WOMEN...FROM 1938
I thought these were pretty funny! Some are definitely unique to their time but others still apply in my opinion! Check them out for yourself.
Here are some actual dating tips for women from a 1938 edition of Parade Magazine.
-Men don't like girls who borrow their hankerchief and smudge them with lipstick. Makeup in privacy, not where he sees you.
-Don't sit in awkward positions-and never look bored, even if you are. And if you must chew gum (not advised), do it silently, mouth closed.
-Careless women never appeal to gentlemen. Don't talk while dancing, for when a man dances, he wants to dance.
-If you need a brassierre, wear one. Don't tug at your girdle, and be careful your stockings are not wrinkled.
-Don't use the car mirror to fix your make-up. Man needs it in driving, and it annoys him very much to have to turn around to see what's behind him.
-Don't be familiar with your escort by carressing him in public. Any open show of affection is in bad taste, usually embarrasses or humiliates him.
-Don't be sentimental or try to get him to say something he doesn't want to by working on his emotions. Men don't like tears, especially in public places.
-Don't be familiar with your headwaiter talking about the fun you had with someone else another time. Men deserve, desire your attention.
-Don't talk about clothes or try to describe your new gown to a man. Please and flatter your date by talking about the things he wants to talk about.
-Don't drink too much, as a man expects you to keep your dignity all evening. Drinking may make some girls seem clever, but most get silly.
-Don't be conspicuous, talking to other men. The last straw is passing out from too much liquor! Chances are your date will never call you again!
