Awkward Dating Profiles Of The 1960’s

Awkward Dating Profiles Of The 1960’s - Awkward Galleries

Thanks to the Internet, we live in a golden age of romance–especially if you’re of the kinky persuasion. No matter who you are, (or what you’re into), you can find people with similar interests, without having to even leave your couch! Even better, you can be as anonymous as you want! Obviously things haven’t always been this way, and if you look at these dating profiles from the 1960’s (thanks to our friends at Flashbak), you’ll see how far we’ve come.

 

Imagine how difficult all of this would have been. This was a time when a minuscule percentage of people even knew what kinky stuff was. Then realize your only communication was snail mail. (Or phone, if you’re lucky, but many of these guys weren’t.) On top of THAT, you had to use full photos of your real face. You couldn’t even use a Snapchat filter!

Talk about putting it all out there.

We’ll never know if these gentlemen ever found their special someone or someones, but we like to think they did. We’re romantics at heart.

The Crying Game - Photos

“I think this was for a passport photo about 1964. I’m the one crying. My dad had just fussed at us for something, which made me cry. He wanted to get the picture over with, and threatened to take it with me crying. Which he did, and which made me cry even more. My brother and sister were struggling not to cry as well.”
