    Old Fashioned Ideals.

    I am no Prima Donna, that's for sure.I guess I just grew up in a house hold where my dad always treated my mother with respect and courtesy.He always opened the car door for her, often bought her flowers, and was always tender and loving towards her.I feel that a lot of that kind...

    A good man is hard to find,

    and a true Southern gentleman may be even harder to find. He is the standard by which Southern mothers raise their sons. Instead of saying, “be good so Santa will bring you presents,” they say “Now, son if you want to be a Southern gentleman than you need to act like this...

    A Rare Kind..

    I love a man who knows how to behave like/be a gentleman, especially in public. A true gentleman will get and hold my attention. It's in all the little subtle hints and gestures. The respectful way he handles me and others. His principals, manners and good taste. It's a...

    I Always Try My Best.

    I will always open doors for women and take my hat off indoors, and try my best to be a gentlemen all the time.

    I try to embody gentleman-like behavior.

    I will admit that some of the physical practices, such as opening the woman's door for her, are probably rusty due to the 9 years since my divorce and lack of women of the appropriate age where I live. In addition, I do not move very fast due to my disability. If a woman...

    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...

    and dichotomy problem. I like guys who are dominant and aggressive, but gosh I hate being told what to do. I mean sometimes I'm fine with it, like during sex that's fine and preferred, but outside of that gosh nothing makes me as mad. If it's in the heat of the moment, that's...

    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...

    Shame On You

    It is most unfortunate but some men think that because they are on the internet, that it gives them the right to be rude to women. Case in point, an EP member had been pestering me for friendship.  He kept sending me messages to my whiteboard and I asked him why he wanted...

    Call me traditional or perhaps

    even old fashioned, but I do prefer a man to be a gentleman. I grew up watching my father open the doors for my mother, hold her chair as she sat down, walk beside her and hold her hand or arm, and saw the tender devotion and strength that he had. He was the consummate gentleman...

    Bring me back to the old days

    where people still had class. Women wore dresses and had respect for themselves and men still held doors and knew how to treat a lady. I'm not saying they're aren't people like this today though very rare do you come across them.

    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!

    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...
