How Dateable Would You Be in the 19th Century?

How Dateable Would You Be in the 19th Century?

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?
