Romantic advice from the past runs the gamut from the solid to the stupefying. For every logical admonition by an 18th-century Dear Abby, you have a man weighing in with far too many thoughts on women's underwear.

In this episode of The List Show, Erin covers relationship tips from the past—roughly the 18th century until the early 1900s—from the admirable to the abominable. You'll learn about the dangers of being a tomboy and the benefits of marrying someone exactly like you (delivered by a man whose resemblance to his own wife will otherwise go un-noted here).

In case you forgot, The List Show is a trivia-tastic, fact-filled show for curious people. Subscribe here for new Mental Floss episodes every Wednesday: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpZ5qUqpW4hW4zdfuBxMSJA?sub_confirmation=1
