[Read more...] Some girls might not be too fond of being told not to get sentimental, or not to caress her dates too much in public, or to never make a man wait – but combined together, all of these advice help to shape an image of a classic woman, who sure knows how to keep a man intrigued.
Regardless of times, it is also always a good idea not to get too drunk on the first date, not to chat about your previous dates with waiters or to at least try not to look bored on a date.
Plus, the pictures that illustrate the tips are pretty hilarious!
Many of us must be familiar with the feeling when our parents tried giving us dating advice, and would make every single person in the room feel awkward.
Besides, how many of those did you actually ever find useful?
Well here’s a dating guide that might seem ridiculously outdated at first – given that the Parade Magazine published it back in 1938- but don’t be too quick to judge!

The Talmud (Smachot ) also says: "An excommunicated person who dies is worthy of stoning. 334:3) But I think in today’s time, we follow a second reason for putting a stone a grave. 376:4) says that upon visiting a gravesite, you pull up grass and toss it behind your back.But not that they placed a heap of rocks upon him, rather a messenger of the court places a stone upon his coffin – in order to fulfill the mitzvah of stoning." Rabbi Klonimus, who was buried next to the great Rabbi Ovadia M'Bartenura, asked that stones be placed on his grave, so that if he had committed any transgressions that warranted excommunication, this would atone for it. Rabbi Yehudah Ashkenazi writes in Be'er Heitev, his 18th century commentary on the Code of Jewish Law (O. 224:8), that the custom of placing stones on the grave is for the honor of the deceased person by marking the fact that his grave had been visited. This shows our belief in resurrection: Just as grass that withers can grow again, so will the dead rise in the messianic era.(source: Machzor Vitri 280) In 1263, the famous Disputation began between Nachmanides and a Jewish convert to Christianity, Pablo Christiani.King James of Spain had authorized the religious debate, to try to "prove" which religion is true.Nachmanides reluctantly agreed to take part, only after being assured by the king that he would have full freedom of expression.Nachmanides won the battle, but lost the war: His arguments earned the king's respect (and a prize of 300 gold coins), but the Church ordered Nachmanides to be tried on charges of blasphemy, and he was forced to flee Spain.
