Boy, am I glad I found someone to marry me. It’s rough out there. At least I assume it is (I’ve been with my husband for 8 years, so I wouldn’t really know, but I still kind of know, you know?).
I don’t think dating is or has ever been really easy. But I’m just grateful to not be doing it anymore, and I’m certainly thankful that I wasn’t dating in 1938. The tips single women got then to not be single anymore? F-r-i-g-h-t-e-n-i-n-g. What’s even scarier? Some of the tips kind of hold up today.
Check out this little photo guide for single women to land a husband in 1938 (think of it as The Rules: The Early Years). Times have changed, but have they really changed? Yeah, no. And, uh, ugh (all images courtesy of Retronaut.co):
