    Yes

    People will always compliment me for that and also that I am friendly as well as being likable. I see no point in being rude or inconsiderate.

    I am very formal when I'll talk to people .

    .... Maybe because people around me are also formal ...... my friends talk like me and they do not use slangs, but I find it funny when someone speaks slang with me and I do not understand, I ask them, and they say: You are not Brazilian? hahaha )))

    Lost Art

    I was raised by older parents who always taught "Please", "Thank you", "Yes sir", and "Yes Ma'am". They were strict on these things, also on calling adults by Mr or Mrs and their last names, even if told otherwise by the person it was still respectful. I am a woman who dates...

    I tend to be a very formal person.

    I say please and 'thank you' all the time. I greet everyone with handshake. I speak polite words because I'm used to speak formally. some people think I'm a cocky boy, but this is my way of speaking and expressing myself, hahaha

    Always

    I have always been polite.  I'm polite online and offline.  Some say I'm too nice and some get aggravated by my politeness but hey, this is who I am and I cannot break the cycle or my habit.  This is the way I was taught and raised.

    Manners seem to have become a rare commodity.

    Which is sad because they cost you nothing and can be priceless to others.

    Most Of The Times

    I have decided to be polite only to those who deserve it. If a person treats me badly they don't deserve me being polite to them. But for the most part I love being polite to people.

    Who Allowed Teenagers On EP?

    A Result Of Upbringing

    I Can Say Please And Thank You

    I feel like so many people have forgotten or just don't know these words.Lets not forget "bless you,sorry,or (the least common these days) excuse me." Manners should be a class tought in school.

    I am very polite and with good manners towards

    everyone I meet and know, but if you bother or insult me, my family, or my friends, I would go all types of street on you no matter who you are. And that is a promise.

    Too polite for my own good.

    I feel awkward trying to make a solicitor go away, too guilty to say something rude or offensive to people-even in here- and sometimes my manner of talking seems so formal that establishing a casual tone is something to work on. On a second thought, who am I trying to impress?

    Being Polite Is the Right Thing to Do

    I work in a field that is filled with individuals with some sort of emotional problem. I can't help but think if a lot of problems could have been avoided if someone was polite to an individual at a needed time.

    Being polite makes me 1000x more attracted to a guy. Even just saying "excuse me" or "miss" or holding the door open. To the men that do those things; Congrats, you're amazing.
