McCall's magazine first came out in 1873 and released their final issue in 2002. It had a good run, but the digital age was advancing and less and less people were buying magazines. Sure, there are still plenty of magazines out there, but most of them are rags or gossip mags. As you look at the magazines at checkout, one trend that you will see is dating and relationship advice in just about any of them. However, none of them give advice in the amount of detail and specificity that this 1958 McCall's magazine doled out. It is some of the most relatable and practical advice that you can still easily implement today. Plus, some of it is just crazy-funny while making you realize how people used to think about relationships back in the day.

It is was pretty bad back then. Single women outnumbered the single men in the world by a huge gap. No wonder they thought they needed to come up with a guide to help a woman snag a good fish out of a shrinking pond.

Now pay attention

I have to admit that some of these suggestions are pretty brilliant, but there are plenty that will make you cringe and say, "wtf." Honestly, I am not sure how they even thought half of these ideas would actually work. Seriously, who wants some other "attractive girl's" leftovers?

Are you taking notes?

Not only do you need to know where to find these elusive, underpopulated men, but you also have to know how to look good enough to catch their interest. The biggest takeaway from this section is to NEVER get sick. It is so unattractive. So, if you have a cold, a man should never be forced to see you in that state.

Are you ready to land that swell guy yet?

If you want to keep the guy you have set your sights on be sure that you constantly blow happy smoke up his rear end. Spoil him like the big man-child that he is and never put your own needs before his. Never talk about your past and always be ready to cater to his every whim.

In case you need an extra push...

This section of the list is so laughable that it has to make you wonder if the whole article was just one big joke. From denying your family to drowning yourself to using bribery, this list is just bizarre, to say the least. However, we want to know if you implemented any of these tips and if they worked for you. Please let us know.
