Learn to Be a Gentleman

One thing I feel that is needed for a man to be romantic is to be a GENTLEMAN. Being a gentle man is being attentive to the needs of the women in your lives. Being a gentle man means being compassionate and understanding towards the special woman in your life. Being a gentle man means knowing her needs and wanting to meet those needs. Being a gentle man means being the man in the relationship and letting her be the woman by treating her like the Queen she is.

Being a GENTLEMAN includes opening and holding the door for your special someone wherever you go, including other women that you may surround you. Opening her car door is also a nice gentlemanly act that women are not used to anymore. I know me, dating someone with old school values has told me to not touch the door when I am with him because that is his job and even I sometimes have to catch myself and not reach for the door but its a gesture I appreciate it. 
Some other gentlemanly gestures that a man can do is to pick her up by going to the door to get her versus sitting in the car (my dad's request of any man I dated), pull her seat out for her when she goes to sit down, walking beside her not in front of her, and ordering off the menu for her (if she is okay with it). Being a gentleman can sometimes mean meeting her needs when she has a rough day such as cooking dinner, helping with the kids or letting her get the rest she needs at night. 
Being a gentleman is about being attentive to your special someone. Your special someone will reward you with a smile, a thank you, and even by being more attentive to your needs as well. Being a gentleman is not about monetary things, tho gifts are nice, but being a gentleman is all about the simple comforts that you can show towards your special someone. A gentleman is gentle in mannerisms, affections and support. All the results your display being a gentleman can lead to a very romantic night. It sets the tone for the evening and opens the door for intimacy. Yes some women like a little hardness in a man or a man that is rough around the edges but most women like a man who has a gentleman side to them and can appreciate it. If not, refer them to my last blog, Letter to Your Special Someone.

As always in my blogs I like to share websites that catch my eye. Tonights searches led me to Bosch Car Service. I know as a woman, I love for my man to take care of my car, but sometimes ladies, we have to do it ourselves.  Enjoy your evening and love and appreciate your special Gentleman in your life.

  1. I feel what your saying here. I have no problem doing any of these and I know other guys that do as well but at the same time some women need to allow us to do these things. Some women act like when we do these things we want something or some are so independent that they will make it a problem when we do things like this. Women should be treated as such.
