A Gentleman’s Guide
In today’s society, we have become more and more informal. In some ways, this is a good thing. However, in becoming more informal, men have lost the knowledge of simple manners and etiquette basics. There is much more to being a gentleman than simply dressing the part. In this guide, we will discuss some of the benefits of being a gentleman.
Gentlemen Are Always Respectful
People respect those that are respectful. A gentleman is respectful to everyone they meet regardless if others are respectful in return or not. Gentlemen give respect because it is important to show that he values another as an individual. That he honors the personal rights and dignity of a person as a fellow human being. This type of behavior earns you the respect of others as a consequence.
Gentlemen Are Always Trustful
A gentleman is honest about all things he does. By using politeness and considering others, he creates an atmosphere of trust and puts others at ease. Gentlemen must build trust in order to achieve their goals. Gentlemen in high-trust relationships communicate well. They don’t second-guess one another. They understand why they are doing things and will to go the extra mile to ensure that goals are met.
These first two points can certainly help a gentleman in his career. Gentlemen become successful by winning the respect and trust of others. This can propel them to succeed in all aspects of their life. Let’s look at some more examples in our gentleman’s guide that can be gained from gentlemanly behavior.

A gentleman desires to be with a certain type of woman. One who respects herself and demands she be treated as a human being and not an object. They desire strong women who know their worth and who have something to bring to a relationship.
Gentlemen Know When To Show Discretion

This practice applies to business and professional situations as well as personal ones. It is better to be prudent than merely courageous therefore discretion is the better part of valor.
