The idea being, of course, to protect her from traffic, debris, puddles and other urban calamities.
Especially when it's freezing. Especially when it's snowing. Especially in the rain. If she looks cold, she's cold. Just take your jacket off.
You should also rise when she exits. At a meal, you stand when she excuses herself and again when she returns. Even a partial rising shows gentle manners, but it's best to fully stand if possible.
The first words out of your mouth when you meet a woman on a date should be along the lines of "you look stunning."
6. A gentleman helps her to be seated.
1） Pull the chair out for her.
2） As her knees bend to sit, gently push the chair in with both hands on the backrest.
7. A gentleman says "please" and "thank you."
Far too often overlooked, a simple "please" and "thank you" can go a very long way.
8. A gentleman minds his table manners.
Even if you've never mastered the continental style of using utensils (left hand, fork; right hand, knife), it doesn't take any training to not talk with your mouth full or chew with your mouth open.
9. A gentleman is never rude to servers, bartenders, or anyone else for that matter.
There is nothing more offensive than someone who talks down to someone and treats them as if they were inferiors.
小编提示：其实我们生活中很常见的一类人就是“snobbery”（摆绅士架子）：ill-mannered, awful for everyone around you（无礼，并对你身边的每个人态度恶劣）。
10. A gentleman pays.
Under no circumstances should she see the check or have any idea how much it is. A tight-lipped smile is your friend here, as always.
11. A gentleman listens.
Listening does not mean "waiting for your chance to talk." It means being attentive, learning to read responses, understand reactions, and navigate someone's emotional landscape.
12. A gentleman pays attention to details.
Take mental notes. Her likes. Her dislikes. Her shoe size. Her ring size. Her favorite color. This information will prove useful and when it does –it shows you care.
13. A gentleman is a jack of all trades.
A gentleman knows how to do things. He is confident and socially adroit, able to handle any situation that life throws at him.
14. A gentleman shows initiative.
If you're asked which dress, which pair of jeans, or which pair of shoes looks better...have an actual opinion. "They both look the same" or "whatever you like" are not actual opinions. Likewise, if you're asking someone on a date, have a destination in mind. Have a plan.
15. He goes out of his way to let her know he cares. Every. Single. Day.
Flowers. Affectionate post-it notes. Simple compliments. All of those things add up. So show your affection every day.
