Learn How to Be a Gentleman on a Date

Learn How to Be a Gentleman on a Date - Wantmatures Blog

When the old gold ways seem to be long gone and replaced with "want to hang out" text that has is seen as a date, women still love and admire the gentle ways. If you are looking to make an impression and score another date, you will have to play a soft role.

But first, let's look at the meaning of the term Gentleman.

What is a Gentle Man?

A gentleman is a man who is kind, polite, and courteous and treats a woman with respect and honor.

Now you are through with the hardest part of asking her on a date. Please give yourself apart for good work, and let’s work on the next challenging part, making an impression.

Let look at ways you can behave like a gentleman and make a lasting impression.

Set the Venue of Your Date

Once you have found a partner on WantMatures.com, you need to have a venue in mind so that she will have to say yes. Whether you are taking her for dinner, the movie, gallery, or museum, it will be useful to make online reservations or purchase those tickets beforehand. These will avoid making changes at the last minute.

Dress Well

Dress the part. It doesn't need to be designer clothes, be smart. She probably has been talking to friends all week, asking for the best dress, making her hair look nice and makeup. Grooming your self is essential as you have to look like a gentleman. Have a haircut, for long hairstyle it and get your facial hair termed. She will surely appreciate your effort in trying to look suitable for her.

Don’t Be Late

Gentlemen are never late for their dates. Set the alarm if need be, now how long it will take you to get to her house so you can leave on time.

If you are running late, call and let her know you are running late but have a perfect reason. She may not wait for long because she might have gone through that before, and the mad never showed up.

Pick Your Date from Her Door

Picking your date at her doorstep shows you are doing everything to make her comfortable. Bring her flowers as you choose her, it may seem like an old school, but a bouquet or just a rose will make you appear like a perfect gentleman.

Complement Her Early

Just after a simple "hi," the next word should be complementing. Tell how great she looks tonight, and ladies love reassurances with looks. Don't go overboard with the compliments. Completing here, later on, will not appear well. She may think you have some motives.

Open the Doors for Her

Open all the doors for her - the car door, restaurant, or any other place to ensure you get the door handle before her. Do not forget to pull the seat for her and let her sit first.

Maintain Etiquette

Let your lady order her food first before you order yours. Keep your napkin on your laps. Engage in a good conversation that will keep both of you engaged. Don’t look down at your plate for long. Your mushroom can not talk back, maintain eye contact, and enjoy your date.

Be Prepared to Pay the Bill

There is a conversation about if women want equality; they should pay for the date too. As a gentleman, you know pretty well that you should not allow a woman to pay for dates. But what do you do if she insists? Don’t accept it; you can politely tell her she can pay for drinks after dinner or for the next date.

Keep Off Your Phone

When going for a date with a lady, you are interested in ensuring all other businesses are taken care of early. Nothing shows you are not involved like a man who keeps checking their phone or talking on the phone when on a date. Better switch the phone or keep it on silent mode.

Keep the Conversation Going

Have questions in mind you would like to ask your date to avoid the awkward long silence moments. Let your partner be the queen of your conversation, women like men who listen to them. Know the difference between confidence and creepy. Please don't ask questions about her past relationships. Let her know you care by asking how her family is doing.

Women admire confident men, but that does not mean you start talking about how much you made last week, how costly your watch is, and how expensive your designer perfume is, or how hard it was to find that unique decor in your house.

Don't talk about your past relationship either, especially if it's your first date. Never speak ill of your ex, no matter how bad you were hurt.

Drop Your Date Home and Request for Another Date

A real gentleman doesn't let his date walk home, take the bus, train, or taxi back. Just like picking her up is very important, dropping her by her doorstep is equally essential.

Thank Her for Showing up for the Date

Show your interests, let her know you enjoyed her company and would like to catch up again soon. A gentleman does not leave her date confused. You can give her a kiss or a hug, but you need to ask for her permission first.

How to Flirt Like a Gentleman on WantMatures

  • Be polite - women like men who are respectful. Do this with everyone you meet while on your date.
  • Be humorous - women are attracted to a funny man and can make them laugh but limit your jokes.
  • Don’t invade her personal space, at least keep a distance.
  • Complement her beyond her looks.
  • Whisper in her ears.
  • Ask her for a dance.

Remember, gentlemen don't stare at their date curves, no matter how beautiful they are — key your eyes on her eyes. Keep smiling and enjoy your date.

Being a gentleman on a date starts way before the date, from inviting your lady to the date and making reservations to dressing. It's all-inclusive; you have to act, dress, and talk.
