How to be a gentleman

Posted on March 19, 2007. Filed under: Advice |

AskMen has a very good article on the art of being a gentleman.

I think we all could agree – both the guys and the girls – that we could use a little bit more thoughtfulness in our daily interaction with one another. This article pretty much echoes that premise, with some straight to the point practicality such as:

“Do not spit: A lot of men do this almost subconsciously. Spitting is very crude and not too pretty to look at. Do not spit in public unless you want to look like you were raised in a sewer.

Do not laugh at others’ mistakes: This is perhaps one of the cruelest things one can do. When you mess up, the last thing you want is for someone not only to bring it to your attention, but to ridicule you on top of that.

Always open doors for a lady: This is perhaps the most basic rule of male etiquette out there. It is also one of the easiest to follow so you have no reason to forget it.”

Also on the list were standing when a lady enters the room, going easy on the swears, and quit with the interrupting already.
