Romance Guru - Page Peterson is Full of Advice on How to Go Steady

She's shown us how to hold onto our man, how to cope with annoying siblings, and how to pull out of a feeling sorry for ourselves downward spiral. She's also got a fab wardrobe, an office full of midcentury modern furniture, and a huge heart. She's none other than Page Peterson

"Do's & Dont's of Dating"
Young Romance #190
(January 1973)

Did readers like Page? You bet they did! 

"Ann Martin, Counselor-at-Love" 
Secret Hearts #152
(June 1971)

Page's "Do's and Dont's of Dating" and text pages are some of the best pieces of advice in the romance comics. Not only are they visually appealing, they are filled with wisdom to be gleaned by us modern folks needing answers in love. For those reasons and many more, Page's advice made it into my upcoming book How to Go Steady: Timeless Dating Advice, Wisdom, and Lessons from Vintage Romance Comics.
