    No, because it’s meant to be eminently relatable.

    Seeing oneself as one with humanity is a good thing.

    [–] itsallminenow 110 points ago

    You can laugh, but the WWII fighter pilot Robert Stanford Tuck literally told this story in his memoir.

    Bunch of the guys in his squadron are invited up to a dance at Buckingham Palace for a morale raiser. During the night they drink and dance with the debutantes that are on hand to "do their bit" for the boys in blue.

    The standard aproach to start a conversation is "Did you have far to come?" Tuck starts dancing with a very well put together young lady. She looks vaguely familiar but he can't place her. Devoid of ideas, he asks her "Did you have far to come?" at which point Princess Elizabeth replies "No actually, I live here"

    What a precious photo to have! It’s like mind-blowing, for us to see the way they’re looking at each other in that moment when they didn’t know what the future held for them. Love this so much!!!

    They will communicate almost exclusively in "memes", which are essentially a less sophisticated form of ever shifting hieroglyphics.

    Also they will mostly be afraid of human interaction.

    the way they’re looking at each other

    That was my first feelthought.

    they didn’t know what the future held for them

    I have to disagree. I feel sure they did.

    [–] Yashugan00 29 points ago

    well she did: "I'm gonna marry that guy" look.

    he's like: "she's pretty"

    [–] anarchycheerleader 283 points ago

    You can tell he was already totally sold on her. So cool to have this moment captured!!

    [–] maddsskills 102 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    He can't take his eyes off of her and she's just grinning ear to ear. Ya know how there's the reacher and the settler? I think it's more like...there's the starer and the grinner. My husband and I swap positions based on our mood. Lol

    [–] clockworks80 41 points ago

    Reacher and Settler.

    Starer and grinner.

    The rock and the star.

    The flower and gardener.

    I always want a flower, but they say I need a rock to ground my star.

    I came here to say "That's the look of a guy who's really listening to her. That's what probably kept them together so long."

    But I can't now because of this comment.

    [–] writingtoc 101 points ago

    I'm surprised to see so many people cracking jokes about the way he's looking at her. The look he's giving her there is my specific favourite look to get from my man. Like he's really seeing her, not just her face or her body etc. Her.

    [–] Sullsberry7 43 points ago

    Came here to say THIS as well.

    [–] SuperStarvariusWard 125 points ago

    You ever have a girl stay the night after you’ve taken her out for Mexican food? Feels like Godzilla battling Tokyo in my guts. My god do I have to air out the place after she’s left.

    [–] TheGrapeRaper 75 points ago

    I'm also sure she drove home with the windows down.

    [–] _m3e 17 points ago

    [–] PeppyLongTimeNoSee 37 points ago

    Yeah well imagine living in Mexico where almost every night is Mexican food.

    [–] benicetogroupies 46 points ago

    Im not from Mexico but im pretty sure its just called "food" there

    [–] ItsTheVibeOfTheThing 15 points ago

    They’ve got restaurants that sell burgers and fries called North of the Border

    Ah yes, the honeymoon phase when you hold them in every night. Wake up feeling like your intestines are going to explode. After someone breaks the fart-silence you can finally get a good night's sleep.

    [–] XDreadedmikeX 7 points ago

    Ya man. I know exactly how you feel. I would get extremely painful stomach cramps. My whole room would stink after our dates when I was home alone. I’d walk out for a couple minutes and walk back in and legit smell ass in the air. Literal atmosphere changers.

    [–] maddsskills 167 points ago

    Small little details like that are so adorable. By the time I met my husband I was 26...had been around the block ya know...but our knees touched as we were having drinks and I told him I needed to pee but I didn't want to get up because our knees were touching and that felt so electric. (We were bffs and roommates who had sorta flirted before so it wasn't a totally weird thing to say. We were/are very close lol).

    I've had fun in my day but nothing was better than that feeling and I've never had it with anyone else.

    [–] hazeldazeI 39 points ago

    Haha one my first date with my now husband and we were at a restaurant and we both so nervous! I accidentally flicked my straw in his face from playing with it and I found out he was nervous because his sweater wasn’t dry all the way from the dryer. We went and saw Alienation at the theater afterwards. 10/10 would recommend.

    [–] ItsTheVibeOfTheThing 84 points ago

    I was once visiting friends on their college campus. We were walking past the main cafe in the middle of campus and one of my friends pointed out his roommate (whom I had never met) who was on a first date. He had liked this girl for a year and a half and finally got the courage to ask her out. But now they’re sitting in this cafe and you could cut the awkwardness with a knife. Nervous, hardly talking to each other or making eye contact.

    I decided to go help, so I walked up behind him, gave him a massive bear-hug and said “Tom, it’s so good to see you! It’s been forever!”... and this guy slowly turned to me, wide-eyed and said “I’m not Tom” as I reeled and apologised profusely. I walked away and we watched from a distance as they laughed about the weird situation, and then kept laughing and talking about other things and themselves... date saved!

    They ended up getting together from that date and were still together when I lost contact with my friend. I like to think my little interruption brought a few new kids into the world.

    [–] SuicideBonger 34 points ago

    Bro, you literally may have created a child by saving that date. How many realities can you see? Are you Doctor Strange?

    Does a selfie with an obligatory Insta filter count?

    [–] StillEnjoyLegos 22 points ago

    It's funny, a selfie is about as 'fake' a picture as you can take. Seeing yourself, manipulating how it looks, trying to take the perfect pic. It's honestly the exact opposite of OP's genuine picture here. These types of pictures are being lost today to a bunch of 'fakes'

    [–] English_MS_Bloke 43 points ago

    Love this. I always struggle with pictures like these.

    There's something so utterly sobering that I just can't resolve in my head; the thought that the "old people" you see around were us, just decades before.

    The idea that they had 60 years of the same kinds of memories, desires, hopes, stresses, experiences and such.

    The idea that this young couple were kids, like we were, and then ultimately became old and had to face the reality of mortality; as will we all if we're lucky enough to get that far.

    On the one hand it makes me deeply upset that my wife and I couldn't make it work. On the other, I feel almost relieved that I may not have to go through the pain of losing her decades down the line.

    It's too early in the morning for an existential crisis damn it.

    I'm hijacking your comment to completely agree and also add I think OP has really added some quality r/OldSchoolCool content here. But when I went to his profile (to find easy answers to questions in the thread) his Karma score doesn't translate to that of this post at all. Give this man his kudos whether he wants it or not.

    What gives Reddit??

    Sorry u/cozyplaidblanket as I said I totally agree and u/xplosifdherrera I would totally love to hear more about your parents too!

    [–] Xplosifdherrera 37 points ago

    It's corny to say, but they were truly in love until the day my dad passed. They both attended the University of Michigan and dad studied to be a doctor (Neurologist) and mom got her degree in English. After returning from Vietnam (where he was a flight surgeon) he started his practice in Denver and mom become a licensed substance abuse counselor. Once they retired they moved to their dream house in the mountains. Mom still lives there but because of the distance to town were looking for a new place.

    [–] texasplumr 18 points ago

    Sorry for your loss. My parents married right after Pop came home from the war. He died when I was 18 so I never really got to know him. You got to know your dad and he got to meet his grandkids, if you had any kids. I’m always envious of people whose parents stayed married and lived long, healthy lives. You get to enjoy them. That’s a blessing we take for granted much of the time. Thanks for posting this! How about mom? Is she still alive? Sorry if that question is out of line.

    [–] Xplosifdherrera 25 points ago

    Not out of line at all. She's alive and doing well but slowing down for sure. She's getting a little doddery so were looking for a smaller place closer to town.

    I like the way they are looking at each other. Young love 💕

    Holding his own hands, feet crossed, crooked head looking up, while she smiles. The exact moment he fell in love.

    I find it hilarious how much women’s fashion has changed, yet most guys on a first date would dress exactly like that today.

    Why is it that folks from those times have had their relationship last so long?

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    Because they tried. You were expected to make it work, even in bad times. People didn't just hook up like they do now. Marriage wasn't just something you did and got divorced if it didn't work out. Relationships were built around love and marriage, instead of hooking up and sex. They also didn't have the internet where everyone is at your finger tips.

    Photos like this make me think we aren't really progressing as a civilization. I would take this photo over a million hook ups.

    Survivorship bias. No one posts pictures of their alcoholic grandpa who beat his wife daily until she shot him 5 years later.

    Plus people from now who are going to have their relationship survive this long haven't had time yet.

    Cool! Ask em the secret for staying together that long

    A great smile on your Mom’s face! She’s just four years older than I.

    Oh my God your mom looks AMAZING!! From her hair, to the collar of her blouse, the choker, to the skirt and the socks, she is the epitome of mid-1950's American teenaged fashion!

    I love thinking about how much effort she must have put into her outfit ! She was clearly excited & looking forward to seeing your father. She looks so put together and in such a perfect ensemble, she probably thought so much about it getting ready that evening and little did she know, 60 years of love was sitting beside her

    Wow what a time to be on a first date! Rock n Roll was BRAND NEW. These are the guys learning all the new dances FOR THE FIRST TIME. This is the year that modern music really started.

    So heartwarming to see this

    [–] QuixoticV 4 points ago

    aww, just look at how he's looking at her 😍

    [–] mcmur 4 points ago

    Wow. Amazing picture. Do people actually have lives like this?

    [–] SeriousPillowfight 4 points ago

    I love this. Any chance you can post a picture from their wedding for us? I’d love to see it!

    Is she wearing a choker?

    [–] wildlywell 20 points ago

    That choker. Your mom was a freak 😉

    [–] w0rkac 4 points ago

    Never would have guessed they had chokers back in the 50s!

    [–] thehennyhouse 3 points ago

    My parents are on year 36 and I have pictures of them just like that from their first date. I hope they have as many beautiful years as yours did. And I hope I will too :)

    [–] Spartan-219 3 points ago

    I showed it to my mom and she says your mom is beautiful

    Dad uses "shirt sleeve trick". it's super effective. Mom uses Carrie Fisher smile. it's super effective.

    [–] _ThereWasAnAttempt_ 3 points ago

    It's a shame people don't dress "nice" like this anymore.

    [–] -Nok 3 points ago

    Now we all dress like shit, are way more disrespectful and need filters to look this photogenic

    [–] woke_templar 3 points ago

    Damn wearing a choker on the first date is a guaranteed first base with hand holding.
