HANDBOOK FOR DATING by Cecil Jane Richmont


Email this review


Both shy and aggressive girls should find this pathfinder helpful in taking the adolescent hurdles of dating and infatuation in stride. The approach is one of guidance directly stated with never a hint of patronage. Don't expect too much help from the advice of other teen agers, cautions the author, for they have little more experience with the opposite sex than the girl who is embarking on her date life. She draws a reasonable guideline between chasing and being chased by the boys. She suggests that a group of girls who are non-daters may jointly give a party to which they may invite eligible boys. Then if the group clicks, dances and sports events may follow, with interchange of partners helping to smooth the social path. A helpful, well written survey of the teen aged girl's social problems which never underestimates the importance of a hero for a heroine.
