I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not the best on being a gentleman. Rarely do I open the car’s door for my female companion, I have the bad habbit of cutting the entire steak into bite size pieces before I begin eating, I use my smart phone in social places, and if I’m having a good time, I don’t watch my drinking when out in public. I’m often direct, and “Fuck it” is a highly used phrase in my vocabulary.
However, I’d like to think I have a few gentleman qualities, such as dressing well, I enjoy fine foods and drinks, I love to dance, enjoy theatre, listen to various types of music, and I can be very friendly. I am also aware of many of the gentleman traits, even if I don’t practice them. That’s a good start, I guess.
Good news is, today I decided I will become a modern gentleman. I bought the How to Be a Gentleman book, it has good reviews so I hope to learn a few things.
Not only did I purchase the book, but I also got a pair of tickets for the Giuseppe Verdi IL Trovatore opera show, and will enjoy a glass of champagne.
At least you know, I am trying ;)
