This Sexist Dating Advice From 1938 Is Both Cringeworthy And Hilarious (Photos)


Oh, nostalgia.

There might be many things we miss from our grandparents' good ol' days, like 25 cent taxi rides and drinking in the office at noon.

But the outright sexism? We're glad that was (mostly) ditched before the 1960s.

For your cringing amusement, someone dug up 13 "dating tips" for women in 1938. We're not sure where these were published, but I imagine it was a sort of Cosmopolitan magazine, minus the sex tips and adding a whole lot of just plain sexism.

Some of these terrible tips include:

"Don't talk while dancing, for when a man dances he wants to dance."

"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 clever, but most get silly."

Read below for the full 13 misguided "pieces of advice." Ladies, note that this is what not to do.
