Dating advice for women circa 1950
There’s no doubt that dating has changed a lot since the 1950’s. However, as much as it pains me to say this, after doing some research I realized that some of the dating rules of the 1950’s aren’t so bad after all.
For women of that era, dating meant putting a man’s needs and desires first and foremost, all with the end goal of finding a husband. Here are a few of my favourites, with some modern updates thrown in. Don’t drink too much – This is actually good advice for both genders – that’s right guys, we don’t like it either if you get blackout drunk while you’re on a date with us. No one – man or woman – wants to see their date cry.
Walter Lewin, age 78—perhaps the most celebrated physics teacher in MIT’s history—has been stripped of his emeritus status and barred from campus, and all of his physics lectures removed from Open Course Ware, because an internal investigation found that he had been sexually harassing students online.
I don’t know anything about what happened beyond the terse public announcements, but those who know tell me that the charges were extremely serious, and that “this wasn’t a borderline case.” I’m someone who feels that sexual harassment must never be tolerated, neither here nor anywhere else.
The ’20s fashion was risqué on the bottom half, too, but most women of the era didn’t seem to feel the need to shave their legs, and when hemlines dropped again in the ’30s, the point became moot.
