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

Boys Like a Girl Who... attractive and well-groomed neat and clean helpful and considerate
...dresses appropriately dependable a good conversationalist a good listener friendly interested in a boy's hobies modest but not shy
...has good manners
...does not talk about other dates.

    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.
