Personality Plus - Heart Throbs #144 (August 1972)

Here is one of those short stories that I just love, love, love and I hope that you will love too! "Personality Plus" was featured in the August 1972 issue of DC's Heart Throbs and tells the tale of Kelly -- who is of the late-blooming, quiet (yet secretly goofy) variety. Harassed by her girlfriends for not having a boyfriend, Kelly is challenged by them to try to get the attention of a guy in the park.

Knowing she can't let her new friends prove her wrong, Kelly uses a little ingenuity to garner looks from the men passing by... and boy! Does she get some looks!

What was it that Kelly
did to attract attention?

Much to Kelly's surprise -- her wacky antics work and she lures in a perfectly handsome (and equally silly) suitor who totally digs her!

When Kelly's impressed friends inquire about how she snagged such a dreamboat, she just casually answers, "It's all in the way you act! Ha-ha!"

I always love a story in
which the goofy girl triumphs!
