Cupid's Pulse Article: Guys Edition: How To Behave Like A GentlemanCupid's Pulse Article: Guys Edition: How To Behave Like A Gentleman

By David Wygant

What qualities does a woman desire most in a man? Confidence? Humor? Good looks? No, what a woman wants from the man she is dating is for him to behave like a gentleman.

Men, here is what a woman wants:

She wants you to open the car door when you pick her up. She wants you to pull out her chair when you’re having dinner. At the end of a date, she wants you to walk her to the door and give her a sweet kiss. She wants you to compliment her, but not go over the top like you’ve never complimented a woman before. When she sleeps at your house for the very, very first time, she wants a new toothbrush along with clean sheets and towels.

Women want good old-fashioned romance. That’s why they want you to call them instead of text them. They like you to reconfirm a date instead of just showing up. And one of the most important things is…don’t ever ask them what they want to do. Instead, just take them somewhere; plan a date, figure out who they are and what they’re all about, and then take them on a journey.

If a woman says no to you when you’re pursuing a physical relationship with her, respect her and say, “Hey, I understand. We don’t know each other well enough yet, and that’s cool. I’ll take things at your pace.”

It’s about being a gentleman, and a lot of men just don’t understand that. When you behave like a gentleman, you’ll actually get a lot more out of a relationship than you ever imagined.

But instead, most men behave like Captain Cavemen. They don’t plan; they don’t let her walk through a door first; and they battle their way through a restaurant, competing for the same spot at the table. Most men have no clue how to lead. They just act like aggressive buffoons.

Don’t be that guy.

The next time that you’re out with a woman, when you’re sitting across from her at dinner, look at her, and make sure that she’s happy and content. More importantly, make sure you’re acting like a gentleman and you’re allowing her to actually get to know you.

Remember that when you act like a gentleman, you actually get the girl and everything else that you want.
