10 characteristics of a gentleman

What do you define a gentleman? Do you define it like a man wearing an expensive suit, having an expensive car, having loads of money and getting all the attention from ladies and men?

No. That does not define a gentleman. In my opinion, having wealth and shiny things doesn't make you a gentleman, but who knows, right? Some men out there have it all and show themselves like true gentlemen and of course, there are some out there that have wealth, expensive cars and nice things, but they come across as total douches and not even remotely close to being a gentleman.

Here are 10 characteristics of a gentleman;

1. A gentleman has manners

  • Looks straight in others eyes while engaging in conversation

  • Pulls out the chair for a lady and or another gentleman (partner)

  • Always gives FIRM handshakes

  • Always says "please" and "thank you"

2. A gentleman doesn't think about other women and or man...

  • There is only one person whom you should be always thinking about and that is the person you want to be spending the rest of your life with and not any other man or women

3. A gentleman has great communication skills

  • Speaks slowly and clear so people could understand

4. A gentleman is respectful

  • Courteous to others

  • Follows rules

  • Is humble

5. A gentleman is a hard worker

  • Regardless of the situation may be, a gentleman will get through it. If you are a hard worker then you can conquer anything.

6. A gentleman always looks sharp

  • Always looking the part. Suit and tie always looking sharp. Remember it is not always about how expensive the look cost you. Anyone can get great looking clothes at a great price almost anywhere.

7. A gentleman respects others

  • You may not agree with some peoples decision making or opinions on topics, but don't get mad about it because it's not what you want to hear

  • Be caring with others around you

  • Never has their hats and or sunglasses on indoors

8. A gentleman does not whine

  • Do not be that guy that cries if he doesn't get it his way. Don't be a whiny baby. MAN UP and deal with it.

9. A gentleman takes responsibility for his actions

  • Own up from your mistakes. You do something wrong, don't hide and pretend that it wasn't your fault.

10. A gentleman is charitable

  • Help others in need, if you can. Donate to charities, if you can. Volunteer, if you can.
