(Teen-Age Romance#85/1 (fb) - BTS) - Judy Parker was
self-confident in her beauty, choosing to wear the latest fashions and
vainly refusing to let anything affect her well-groomed looks. But she
also put down other women to promote herself. She booked a fortnight's
vacation stay at Happy Haven Lodge where young singles could mingle.
Judy arrived at the lodge and instantly gained the attention of several
men, including single Norman "Norm" Daniels. A dinner date between the
two was quickly agreed on and Judy tried several outfits to impress
Norm and make other women jealous. She deliberately went to the meeting
point early so she could taunt two other women without dates. When Norm
arrived, she held off going to dinner so that more people could see
together. As the days progressed, she made sure they were always seen
together, but Norm noted that she was unkind to a shy woman
without a boyfriend. When Norm wanted to play in the pool, Judy refused
as she didn't want to spoil her hair. After a fortnight, on the night
before the big
farewell dance, Norm, disappointed with Judy being
self-centered and her disparaging comments to others, broke off the
romance with Judy, and chose instead to go with a woman Judy had been
nasty to earlier. Norm's new date made no comment as they went off.
Judy was left dateless, tearful and ashamed.

These romance stories often had the flavor of the time in which they were written, and nothing else to tie them into Marvel's sliding timescale. As such, it's likely that the stories took place at the time of publication rather than being part of the sliding timescale.

Norman "Norm" Daniels attended the Happy Haven Lodge
vacation getaway at the same time as Judy Parker. Like other men there,
he was instantly smitten by her beauty and self-confidence. The two dated for the
fortnight together there, but he grew increasingly disappointed at her
vanity and being self-centered. Eventually, on the night before the big
farewell dance, he broke off the romance to attend the event with
another woman Judy had been nasty to earlier.
