Jordana Grace, who lives in Queensland, Australia, but is from Britain, posted a video of herself on TikTok where she read out the best dating tips she had found in a women’s magazine from 1958. The magazine had a feature which listed 129 ways to “bag a husband”.
Speaking to the camera, Jordana said: “Ladies, I’ve found the handbook to bag you a husband.
“A magazine from 1958 has posted 129 ways to find a husband, here are the top tips.”
The TikTokker continued: “Number 17. Be nice to ugly men because handsome is as handsome does.
“Number 23. Go to all your high school reunions because there could be widowers there.
“Number 30. Learn to paint and set up an easel outside of an engineering school.
“Number 25. Go back to your home town because a wild boy next door might now be an eligible bachelor.
“Number 33. Carry a hat box. Number 38. Drop a handkerchief. It still works.
“Number 34. Wear a bandaid (plaster) so he can ask what’s wrong.
