I Prefer Gentlemanlike Behavior

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 938 People

    But That Doesn't Mean Weak

    I like gentleman like behavior, especially in how it relates to traditional interaction between men and women. I like when a man holds a door open for me, asks if I need assistance if I appear puzzled, overwhelmed or struggling with a physical task. I like when a man doesn't use...

    It Is A Must

    I love gentlemen. A man who has manners, speaks well, dresses well and knows how to treat a woman is a true gem. What is a real turn off is a man who has no manners. A man who shows up disheveled and sloppy. A man who has poor grammar and no brains. Contrary to what some of you...

    Just Sayin'

    It's hard for me to detect a gentlemanlike behaviour here in EP. If you try to look simply with your interest, then they would probably fall out to only a few. And yet there are so many I can mention, in and outside my circle. Since I do not limit my interactions with men only...

    Is it disappearing?

     I always smile and feel good when I see a man giving a flower to a woman, taking her coat or waiting till she sit down first. I think there still are gentlemen, but less and less....   I am happy when  my classmate stops in front of the door to...

    So Rare

    I don't want to sound too whiny and maudlin, but I regret the apparent disappearance of this type of behavior. It is becoming increasingly rare to find men who actually know how to treat a woman with respect. I blame the parents :P If a man has good manners, he dresses well, he...

    Troubled He May Not Be Real...

    I'm 19yrs old and I consider myself to be pretty old fashioned comparing myself to the generation I've grown with. Guys that are gentleman-like I consider extremely rare, but the thing is I think I've found one, and I'm really conflicted by it. I'm not conflicted because he was...

    My Brother

    My brother is the most gentleman-like man I know. He's very kind but has an air of confidence I appreciate. He is never, ever rude but quite assertive. He's clever and witty but never uses insulting humor. He's one of those amazing dads who care and despite working very long...

    Gentleman

    I want a guy close to my age(meaning like 17-19) to talk to. Someone to laugh and joke with, someone to be sweet to me when I'm feeling upset, someone who is not afraid to take time to get to know each other! A GENTLEMAN!
