Sunday Advice Blogging

Today we are returning to the Teen Guide to Homemaking (a 1961 American text book), to look at Boy-Girl Friendships (their phrase). It's a shame that our text books didn't provide us with information about how to be more interesting to the opposite sex, so I'm making up for it now.

Girls Like a Boy Who...
...has good manners.
...is clean and well-groomed
...dresses neatly and appropriately
...is intelligent
...is a good conversationalist
...is considerate
...is good natured
...is clean-minded
...is honest
...is punctual
...has a sense of humour.
...gets along with other people

    You've got to admit there's some jolly desirable stuff there, especially the punctuality.
    I would add for both, class consciousness, willingness to shout when its your turn, toleration of occasional farting and appreciation of country and western music.
