Dating advice from 1938 that’s still valid for women today.

It isn’t often that someone finds a 76-year old magazine which contains news or information anyone would care about in today’s modern world, so this retro-futuristic dating advice is quite the surprise.

Dating advice from 1938The incorrectly spelled Airows website found a 1938 issue of Parade Magazine and its advice for young women still makes sense today.

Here’s a taste of Parade Magazine’s timeless wisdom for women. Pay attention, ladies!

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 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 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.
