    Nice Guys Finish Last

    There are a few misunderstandings about being a gentleman, a few misconceptions that continue to exist in society today. Being a gentleman doesn't mean that I am naive, or that I don't have any sexual desire. It doesn't mean that I'm just plain vanilla, or I don't like to get...

    H0w Men Should Treat A Woman

    i understand why women don't trust most men, they only want one thing. they should be told they are loved.  They should be respected, all women need too know and hear that you love them. Sex is not everything,there is much  more to life like having someone to hold and make each...

    I Try To Be One

    We live within a society of selfish, apathetic and some at least, ignorant people. Majority of men and women are in my opinion, far too lose and vulgar. The amount of times I have to hear about some slutty women or some sexist man, thrown in with all the "wild parties" and...

    I'm A Gentleman

    I'm a gentleman .. I pull the chair out for the Lady I'm with or Open the door for her. It's just a habit being a gentleman. No conscious act for me it's just habit being polite.

    It should say, I'm a Southern gentle.

    I was raised to say yes sir, yes mam, no sir and no mam. I was raised that a gentleman opens doors for ladies. To give your coat to woman when she is cold or its raining. To treat all women with respect. Its a dying breed, but I will raise my boys to do the same!

    Sigh*

    I was raised in an era where we learned to say please and thank you. An era when a gentleman held open a door for a lady, stood up from the table when a lady entered the room or left the dinner table and offering a lady a ride if she were walking was just that, a ride to her...

    It's Not A Gender Thing

    Being a Gentleman is defined by how we treat ladies as well as our fellows. It is a code of conduct too often overlooked. I'm on EP to meet people in a spirt of equality where respect rules the conversion and abuse is left in the word that is outside of the keyboard.

    The Way I Was Raised

    I grew up in a respectful household. When my parents disagreed, even if things got heated they never crossed the line. You can have passion without losing control of yourself; I have tons. You don't need to say things to your partner that you later wish you hadn't. They instilled...

    Always Will Be

    I always behave my best around ladies and try not to make them feel uncomfortable because of me. I always mind my words before speaking them, I do some chivalrous things like open the door for a woman or offer my seat to a woman, little things that show my respect to women.
