It’s hard to be considered “dateable” in the modern age. You have to be smart, funny, and in possession of at least three to five decent selfies with good lighting. I don’t have any of that, so I thought I’d check and see if people would have found me more desirable in the 19th century, a time when pretty much all you had to do was smile sweetly and upwards of ten suitors would be jockeying to take you off your family’s hands (for a dowry of $10,000 and twelve cows, of course).
What I discovered is that I would be about as dateable in the 19th century as I am now, which is to say not at all. How dateable would you be?
