Insider Secrets About Boys

What Girls Want to Know About Boys
Unger and Berman
1962

Figuring out boys evidently is a topic for the ages. I remember my teenage daughter asking me why they are so stupid and I remember asking my mom the same thing back in the 1970s. So, here are all the questions you want to ask. Too bad a good chunk of the answers are pretty awful. In this book you can learn:

  • boys are much more emotionally “controlled” than girls
  • boys are aroused by just about anything and girls  often don’t even know they are being “provocative”
  • boys are much more in touch with “reality” than girls because they will eventually have to support a family
  • boys need girls to hold them in check, sexually
  • boys like girls to be well groomed and have manners
  • boys think being feminine is the same as being helpless, and girls take advantage of that

Wow, I had no idea. Good thing I am a modern woman and that attitude isn’t around anymore. Oh wait, yes it is.

P.S. This is the second advice book we have had from Art Unger. Don’t be a “square” let Art school you in the finer points of cool. Continue reading

Pick Your Perfect Partner

How to Pick a Mate
The Guide to a Happy Marriage
Adams and Packard
1946

Finding the perfect match is a tough job. This book has all the quizzes, testimonials, case studies, and facts, to help you make a good decision about a life mate. Sample chapters include: Attracting the one you want; Is it Love – or Infatuation? and my particular favorite: Do you Frighten Possible Mates Away?  They also have a wide variety of quizzes and checklists to make sure you are not headed down the wrong path. In case anyone is keeping score, I think I qualify as an “unhappy” wife.

How to make your Marriage Exciting
Hunter and Hunter
1972

Doesn’t everyone want an exciting marriage?

The author asserts that TOTAL honesty is the key for an exiting and successful marriage. As I celebrate 35 years of marriage this month, I am here to tell you denial and lying is a much better strategy.

“Honey, that pocket protector does look cool!”

“I really do think this is the year for the Detroit Lions”

“Ice cream is healthy. It’s made with milk.”
