Have you ever secretly wished you could get a leg up on the competition and know exactly how to master the art of dating? Well then you are going to be really pissed when I tell you that the answer to every question you’ve ever had about courting a lady friend is in this twelve minute educational video made in 1949. Some points in the video are simply dated because of the social changes in the last sixty years, which is understandable, such as the tweeny little sister innocently asking her big sister what exactly happens on a date. Today, many tweens are taking pictures of their boobs and sending them to their teacher and tweeting about murdering Selena Gomez for swooping in on their man. The naivety of these characters is just shy of charming and closer to what someone looks like just before they murder their family.
Some important points in the educational video are that when you’re deciding which type of girl you should ask to the local Hi-Teen Carnival you should be aware that the beautiful girls are going to act superior to you and won’t be interested in anything you have to say (probably not terribly inaccurate), and the unattractive girls are going to be boring and depressed about their face which is no fun on a date. You should go for the girl somewhere in the middle, who knows how to have a good time. Don’t act too nervous when you ask her or else she’ll pretend she has other plans, and don’t act too cool or she’ll be offended. Just be sincere. I’m down with that theory. When saying goodnight the same rules apply. Too aggressive is a no-no and too cool is purely offensive to a lady. Of course all the advice is directed towards the guy, because duh, when you’re a girl you just have to show up and be pretty. But not too pretty, you entitled princess. Don’t hate on this video too much. It’s possible your parents wouldn’t have made it to the second date without it to show them the way. Oh, and its okay if the guy takes you on a cheap date, because you want him to have money left to take you on another one! Word.
