Many of us must be familiar with the feeling when our parents tried giving us dating advice, and would make every single person in the room feel awkward. Besides, how many of those did you actually ever find useful? Well here’s a dating guide that might seem ridiculously outdated at first – given that the Parade Magazine published it back in 1938- but don’t be too quick to judge! Sure, some of the advice might sound a bit sexist at times, but most of them could actually be regarded as universally acknowledged guidelines of good behavior.
Some girls might not be too fond of being told not to get sentimental, or not to caress her dates too much in public, or to never make a man wait – but combined together, all of these advice help to shape an image of a classic woman, who sure knows how to keep a man intrigued. Regardless of times, it is also always a good idea not to get too drunk on the first date, not to chat about your previous dates with waiters or to at least try not to look bored on a date. Plus, the pictures that illustrate the tips are pretty hilarious!
