How do you go about meeting people to date?
Surefire Ways to Meet a Mate According to The Old Farmers Almanac, the following are surefire ways to meet the perfect mate for you. You decide if you think they will help you or not!
1. Get a copy of the Romance Chain Letter. It has been going since 1904! Make four copies of this and give it to four of your friends. After you give it to them, drink a cup of water and think of the girl or guy you like A LOT! In four days, that person will say something important to you! 2. Swallow the heart of a wild duck. 3. On the last night in April, wash a handkerchief and hang it over a rosebush. When it dries in the morning, the initials of your true love will appear in the wrinkles. 4. Hard boil and egg, cut it in half, discard the yolk and fill the egg halves with salt. Sit on something you have never sat on before, eat the egg, and walk to bed backward. You will dream of your future mate.
5. Peel an apple without breaking the peel, swing the peel around your head three times, and throw it over your shoulder. When it lands, it will form your true loves first initial. 6. Offer your special someone lemonade or cider containing a teaspoon of your own powdered fingernails. 7. Offer your love a double-fudge sundae. Chocolate is rich in phenyl ethylamine, which scientists say accounts for people in love acting so erratically and impulsively. 8. Count 50 white horses and one white mule. The next person you shake hands with will be the one you marry. 9. Measure your loves forearms. If they are similar to the size of your own, you will have a happy future together. If they are not similar, run! You will have nothing but unhappiness together!
