The code of guidance for the Anti-Flirt Club, as published in The Post, Feb 28, 1923:
- Don't flirt: those who flirt in haste oft repent in leisure.
- Don't accept rides from flirting motorists - they don't invite you in to save you a walk.
- Don't use your eyes for ogling - they were made for worthier purposes.
- Don't go out with men you don't know - they may be married, and you may be in for a hair-pulling match.
- Don't wink - a flutter of one eye may cause a tear in the other.
- Don't smile at flirtatious strangers- save them for people you know.
- Don't annex all the men you can get - by flirting with many you may lose out on the one.
- Don't fall for the slick, dandified cake eater - the unpolished gold of a real man is worth more than the gloss of a lounge lizard.
- Don't let elderly men with an eye to a flirtation pat you on the shoulder and take a fatherly interest in you. Those are usually the kind who want to forget they are fathers.
- Don't ignore the man you are sure of while you flirt with another. When you return to the first one you may find him gone.
That's some damn good advice.
