Signs Your Girl is a "Talent Scout for Matrimony"
Matrimony's Signs By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK <AP> — "Deal- Pavement Plato: Recently }t>u wrote on how to tell if a girl is losing interest in you. 1 think 1 have just the opposite problem. My girl is showing so much interest in me 1 am afraid she wants me to marry her. How can 1 be sure? Doubtful" Nothing could be simpler, my boy. She is probably a talent scout for matrimony—and has picked you as her number one target—if: Her father keeps offering you his car so you can take her riding. She always carries a needle and thread in her purse—just in case you should need a button sewn on. She would rather drink beer at a ball game with you than go dancing at a night club w)ith Gary Grant. She starts making remarks such as, "Some girls like real expensive engagement rings, but I think that's a waste of money, don't you?" When you tell a funny story at a party, she chuckles even before you reach the punch line. She begins to take a kindly interest in your money. For example: "You're too generous for your own good, dear. You didn't have to lip the waiter that much." Instead of asking for the latest romantic novel at the lending library, she checks out Uw latest cook book. She proudly shows you a new burn on her finger and says, "I got it in the kitchen last night trying out a new recipe." (Where does she think you thought she got it anyway—sliding down a rope ladder from the Brooklyn Bridge?) Your hair is falling out, but instead of kidding you, she says, "I just love your high forehead, I'ls a sign of intellect." You're a bit on the plump side but, instead of advising you (o RO on a diet or visit a gym, she sighs, "My, you're so much fun to snuggle with. I hate skinny men." When you admire her new frock, she shrugs and says modestly, "It's jusl a little thing I made myself." She can't stand the cigars other men smoke, but "yours are different somehow—they smell so manly." Instead of a $1.39 necktie, she buys you an expensive fishing rod for your birthday. Brother, if this is the way any girl in your life is acting, it's time to run for the hills or walk to the marriage license bureau—depending on how strong you feel.
