Dating tips for women, 1938.November 09, 2012

Unfortunatly I am not the kind of person that can go back to bed, so here I am with my coffee, writing an article in the early morning while it's still dark and quiet outside. I thought that it was time again for something informative on my blog, instead of my face all over the place.

And when you look at the internet, browse alittle, you come across a ton of websites that gives you information on how to find or meet that one perfect person. So many websites, and all with the same tips over and over again.
Providing people with dating or flirting tips was not any different in the 1930s and '40s. Usually the headline of such an article online is nowadays called "How to get the perfect lover". Headlines of such articles in the bygone era were usually called: How to avoid becoming a spinster.
