Top 59 Most Inspiring Quotes On Being A Gentleman

Being a gentleman is not about being the best dressed or the most attractive. Dressing well can show that you’re a gentleman, but it’s just as important to treat women well. Treating them respectfully is a sign of good character and excellent manners. It also shows you take pride in your appearance rather than putting no effort into your appearance at all.

A gentleman is a man who has his priorities in order. He is polite, courteous, and attentive to the needs of others. He is also respectful of those around him. It is about being the kindest and most respectful person that you can be. A true gentleman would never make someone feel uncomfortable and would try to help them in any way they can.

He knows that he should never be too hasty in reaching out for intimacy with someone he just met but that it’s important to show interest in others who open up to him first. A gentleman doesn’t force himself on anyone or take advantage of his position; instead, he takes full responsibility for what happens or what does not happen with regards to any interactions he has with others–even if it doesn’t go as planned!

You are not a gentleman if you are rude to people for no good reason.
