Dating in today’s world has changed, but this can be an advantage for a true gentleman. Etiquette and classic styles are being seen less and less in today’s dating landscape. While some people look at the manners and formality of world like Downton Abbey as almost comical, the impressions that we internalize about ladies and gentlemen with grace and dignity still influence expectations in modern romantic relationships. Simple gestures like letting the lady order first at dinner or opening the door for her send the message that the a gentleman respects and honors the lady. It sets a stage for the gentleman to feel more masculine and the lady more feminine. This does not take away from the equality or the individuality that men and woman have in todays’ world. It underlines that your relationship is something special and needs to be treated with respect and love.
