This Sexist Dating Advice From The 1930s Will Make You Totally Cringe Today

Don’t sit in awkward positions.

This cringe worthy and ridiculously outdated dating guide was published by Parade Magazine back in 1938, to inform all the single ladies of the era on what to do and what not do on a first date with a gentleman. What makes this guide so sexist is not really the tips themselves. They are just a mixture of common sense and politeness for everyone (for the most part)…it’s just that they are all phrased in an extremely sexist way. Honestly, as the tips go, I think we’ve all seen much worse in Cosmo.
