PHILADELPHIA -

Times have definitely changed since the 1930s, especially when it comes to dating.

Now, excerpts from a 1938 dating guide have surfaced online on the website Retronaut.com.

Let's hop back in time!

The first tip is don't drink too much. The site says, "As an expects you to keep your dignity all evening. Drinking may make some girls seem clever, but most get silly."

Next, don't be emotional!  It says "don't be sentimental or try to get him to say something he doesn't want to by working on his emotions. Men don't like tears, especially in public places."

How about this one: Do your makeup in private! This one says, "Men don't like girls who borrow their handkerchief and smudge them with lipstick. Makeup in privacy, not where he sees you."

And, dress in private! "Do your dressing in your boudoir to keep your allure. Be ready to go when your date arrives. Don't keep him waiting. Greet with a smile!"

Lastly, wear a bra! "If you need a brassiere, wear one. Don't tug at your girdle, and be careful your stockings are not wrinkled."

Watch the video clip above to hear the discussion that ensued on "Good Day Philadelphia" Wednesday morning.
