Certainly no young woman wants to stay seated when she is introduced to a group of people that are all standing.
Rules for Teenagers
There is a time when all teenagers should stand on their own two feet. That is when it comes to introductions. There are a few rules that always remain the same, others that change according to circumstances, says the Woman’s Home Companion. For instance, a young person always rises when he, or she is introduced to an older woman or a clergyman, when one speaks or when one enters a room a young person is in. And certainly no young woman wants to stay seated when she is introduced to a group of people that are all standing.
This is just an extra thought—you’ll have lots more fun at parties if you keep circulating instead of settling down in a corner. – Madera Tribune, 1949
