LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN

The notions of chivalry and honor aren't dead, but they're not thriving either. Not only will conducting yourself as a gentleman gain you respect, it will give you something about yourself to be proud of.

PAY ATTENTON TO HOW YOU LOOK


Wear clothes that fit your body well, eliminate flashy clothing and avoid fashion "faux pas" (i.e. baseball hats cocked slightly to the side). A simpler wardrobe will keep the emphasis on you, not your clothes, which will change your outlook. Get regular haircuts.


A TRUE GENTLEMAN IS POLITE TO EVERYONE, IN ACTION AND WORDS


Always be aware of how you can help people. Wait an extra few seconds to hold the door for the person behind you. Offer to help an old or pregnant person get their grocery bags to the car. You don't have to be paranoid or risk killing yourself (i.e if you've got a precarious grip on something heavy, don't open the door for someone) but respect is paramount. Even if someone is being stupid, be polite and respectful.


GIVE GIRLS A LITTLE EXTRA RESPECT


Don't be obsequious, but neofeminism has kind of gotten rid of some basic politeness that they'll appreciate, such as opening car/building doors, etc. Don't put every girl on a pedestal (we're all human), but they'll really appreciate it if you do them favors, like giving up your seat on the bus even though they're not carrying anything heavy.


DON'T TALK ABOUT YOURSELF TOO MUCH


On the other hand, girls like to know a little bit about you so they can understand what you are talking about sometimes. In addition to making you a much more desirable conversationalist, it will make you seem more mysterious to not share too much, which many women find attractive. Get a basic idea of what's going on in music, sports, and politics.


PAY ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT THE WORLD IS MORE THREATENING FOR GIRLS

They're automatically targets at night or in bad neighborhoods. Walk her to her door (or car) if at all possible. It doesn't matter how strong she actually is, if you're a girl people will go at you first, whereas by virtue of being male you're safer. If your girl has to park far away from her dorm or home, always offer to drive her to and from your destination. She will appreciate how caring you are about her safety.


REMEMBER TO KEEP DOING NICE THINGS FOR YOUR GIRL WHEN YOU'RE AROUND HER


If she's carrying something, pick it up when she puts it down and always kindly let her know by saying "oh, let me get that for you", whatever the object is. Remember, being selfish is not attractive. If you are watching television with your girl and you know she likes a particular show or sporting event, leave it there. She will appreciate that little bit of selflessness more than you know.


STAND UP FOR YOUR GIRL


Don't go around punching everyone who looks at her sideways, but if anyone's giving her looks or unwanted advances, intervene. Put your arm around her shoulder and move yourselves away, or go to her and speak up for her. The physical contact reassures her and lets the aggressor know that he's got to deal with both of you.


NEVER BE STINGY WITH YOUR GIRL

If you are going to count the pennies you have spent on her and use that as emotional bribery one day, we suggest you date your mother. That is certainly cheap. When you start to be stingy with your girl when you are not even dining and staying in 5-star establishments, that can only mean one thing... She is out of your league.
