Who do you think you are, woman, sitting weird and looking bored. For the love of men, get yourself together. #imintrouble #thendontbeboring

2. Don’t be a careless woman

Careless women never appeal to gentlemen. Don’t talk while dancing, for when a man dances, he wants to dance. #iwannadancewithsomebody 🤐

3. Obey the man-lap rules, naturally

Advice to young girls about dating from 1916.

Only sit in a man’s lap if invited, unless over 30, thus, desperate. Then, by all means, find a lap. 👀 #whotheycallingdesperate

4. Men deserve our full attention

Did he do anything to earn attention? Doesn’t matter; he deserves it. Why? Because he’s a he, of course. Give the man what he deserves.

Now presenting a completely-made-up-except-for-the-true-parts tale about how proper women act out on the town.

My friend here in pink, she’s the Real McCoy, I tell ya. I’m the jane in black, showing my gams. Some take me for a moll, and I think that’s the bee’s knees.

We hit this juice joint, and it was the cat’s meow. There we sat, upright and pretty, in case some bo was watching. Yea, we’re a couple of hoofers, but no one knew it. We sipped our giggle water, a tad too much for proper gals, and enjoyed all that jazz!

We tried to not be a Florence with our eager eyes, but we hoped to run into a sheik or a flyboy. We met a couple of cake-eaters, all right. We plopped right down on their laps and gave them our full attention. Naturally, we over thirty dames are desperate to land a man.

We sure were a hotsy-totsy couple of owls, alright. My friend wants to visit that gin-mill again. And how!
