Real Advice From The 1950s On Finding A Husband: Tip 6

In 2012, the invention of Tinder changed the landscape of love, dating, and relationships as we know it. Gone are the days where flirting required real-life, face-to-face interaction and welcome to the age of virtual romance, where your next hook up is only one swipe away. As a woman who uses dating apps, it's easy to feel like a small disposable fish in an endlessly big pond of younger, better looking, and more heavily photoshopped fish. I often wonder if courtship was really that much easier before online dating took over, or has the struggle to find good-quality men been one that women have faced since the dawn of time? 

It seems so; a magazine article titled '129 Ways to Get a Husband' was discovered in a 1958 edition of American magazine McCall's. In what seems to be an attempt to help its readers find a husband, it lists 129 bizarre, sexist, and possibly politically incorrect tips to point them in the right direction. I've decided to look into each one to see if they would work today and whether or not things have really changed all that much over the past 62 years when it comes to dating. Welcome to your weekly tip on 'How To Find A Husband: 1950s Style'. Here's Tip #6.
