129 Ways to Not Meet Your Husband in 2019

22 Shares

For all the talk about how women are faced with sexual harassment, emotionally stunted men or the hell that is Tinder... for all the talk about emotional labor and the death of marriage... the truth is, there’s never been a better time to be alive and dating.

Don’t believe me?

You may think online dating and hookup culture is rough but at least, these days, you don’t have to get a hunting license or carry a hatbox just in order to meet a man.

Yes, it’s 129 ways to get a husband, none of which I would actually endorse, all of which were published in McCalls sixty years ago.

    Stay home in my pajamas and avoid life. I like that one a lot. Especially if it involves mindlessly binge watching TV.

    Wearing glasses isn’t a good way to snag men. I’ve worn them since I was 18, still ugly over here lol. Trolling the obits is probably in poor taste,but grieving people tend to make odd choices so it might work.

      There was a saying “boys seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses”. While it might have been true at some point, I don’t think men in general mind that. With a frame that accentuates the face, glasses are very convenient accessories. I always liked Jennifer Aniston’s bespectacled looks better, Cate Blanchet too looks gorgeous in them. Not to mention their concealing function of circles under the eyes. And there are even fetishists like you might want to check out at bobbygoc.sweb.cz. Warning that few stories that I read were a bit creepy though but apparently they dig certain types of glasses incredibly.

        I can pass on that fetish lol. It’s conventionally attractive women in glasses. Not knocking anyone’s fetish with the statement. I’m not even unconventionally attractive, so glasses do nothing for me. I tend to like outlandish frames. I find I can get away with odd fashion pretty well since I’m an uggo. Low expectations ftw. Just disputing that advice from the weird McCall’s article.

        Huh, I thought they made sewing patterns still. I’m pretty sure i saw those at the sewing center last week.

    I’m planning to put a harness on my cat and take him for a walk in the nearest park.   Surely this will turn me into a total guy magnet!

    Oh my.   Maybe my mom has a hatbox lying around.   I can put my paints in it and set up outside my local university
