We bring to your attention a dozen tips published by the British edition of The Daily Mail, which were relevant before the outbreak of the Second World War — in 1938.
A little less than a hundred years have passed since the creation of a retro instruction on how to behave in the presence of a man you like. Are these rules outdated today? Judge for yourself!
1. Dress in your boudoir, and not in the presence of a man. Be ready to leave at the time you have agreed on.
2. Men are not too attracted to women who borrow handkerchiefs and leave lipstick stains on them. Apply makeup when no one sees you.
3. Do not be sentimental and do not try to play on male emotions. Men don't like tears, especially in a public place.
4. Do not attract the attention of other men, even if you accidentally overdid it with liquor. Otherwise, the first date may be the last.
5. Do not talk to a man while dancing. If he invited you, then he wants to dance, not talk.
6. Never sit in a cheeky pose, as if spreading out on the sofa, and do not look at the interlocutor with a faded look, even if you are really bored. Sit down as if you are ready to get up at any moment, close your mouth, listen to the man in silence.
7. The rearview mirror in the car is not intended for you to fix your makeup. It is necessary to provide the driver with an overview of the road.
8. Do not be nice to the waiter when making an order. A man deserves that your attention belongs to him completely.
9. If you have a big bust, wear a bra. And don't tighten your corset too tight.
10. Do not behave familiarly in public. Don't make a show out of your relationship — it's a sign of bad taste. Do not confuse a man and never insult him in public.
11. Do not talk to a man about clothes and do not try to describe your new dress to him. Discuss what he is ready to discuss.
12. Some girls get smarter from alcohol, but it's still better to keep quiet…
13. And do not drink too much, otherwise a man may think that you spend all your evenings in an embrace with a drink.
