Dating challenges: 1950s vs. modern day

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

As if dating isn't hard enough, what if you had to do it in the 1950s? A copy of a dating guide from back then is pretty much a sign of the times.

The courtship of that special someone is an ageless dilemma. Craig has some advice for the modern man: don't go to the movies on a first date and look her in the eye.

Others have a checklist of dos and must haves for behavior on a first date: he should open the door, he should pick up the check, and he should laugh and smile a lot and give his date a compliment when he leaves.

Dating complications of today might include missing a text or perhaps texting too much on a first date.

A look back at a dating guide from more than 60 years ago shows couples of that era also faced a few hurdles. An October 1950 issue of Woman's Own has surfaced. First reported by cupidspeeddater.com, the article details "How a Woman Should Behave in a Restaurant." Recommendations include letting a man order for you and a reminder not leave lipstick marks on a cup.

Matchmaking coach Michelle Frankel says old fashioned rules disappeared, but she says that a code of conduct and class for a gentleman still scores points today. She says that even though women are now executives, they still want to feel taken care of.

This brings us back to Craig and Laticia and some final offerings of advice.

Laticia says a woman likes to know she has a man by her side. He should be a gentleman, assertive, a good conversationalist.

Craig says let her know how you feel. And how does he feel? "I feel in love," he says.

Love is ageless.
