the girl I'm dating told me the other day that she wishes I'd be more of a gentleman.
Girls, how can I do that? I mean, I hold the door for her, pay for some dinners every now and then, ...tell her she's beautiful occasionally... what else is there? What are some things I can do that will convince her I'm a gentleman. ... ?
Be considerate of how she feels. If you are the driver, open her door for her when she gets in and out. Go to her door and knock when picking her up, instead of waiting for her in the car (not assuming that you don't already). Walk her to her door after a date. When holding her hand, bring her hand up to your lips and give it a kiss. And like someone else mentioned, don't let a girl change you. Being a gentleman is something you should refine more but don't let her try to twist it into something that she can take advantage of!
listen to what she says even if you don;t agree with it, tell her how much she means to you, do little things randomly to show her you care about her.
Just be gentle. ask her if she's OK every now and again. if she looks cold give her your coat. be willing to do stupid things (like giving her your coat, or listening to her go on and on about her day) for her. its more of an attitude thing I guess..
those things you listed are good... also... try reading up on gentlemanly ways... start with The Book of The Courtier- classical gentleman's ways... it's 16th Century in origin... 16th Century Italy... then a few other books- but start off with that one. You could also clean up yer language a little bit, not so salty- but never forget that you're a man... Never let a woman change you, k? Stay yourself, son... but you can learn this stuff and grow from it.
