20 Things No Gentleman should ever do !

20 Things No Gentleman should ever do !


“A gentleman is one who puts more into the world than he takes out” – Theodore Roosevelt

1. Wear something ‘ironically’
Geek glasses, Hawaiian shirts, 80’s retro sportswear, you name it – a gentleman wouldn’t be seen dead in something purely for the sake of ‘irony’, leave this look to the likes of pop-up-store-come-vintage-clothing-come-speakeasy-bar-owners.

2. Get any part of you body pierced
Do what you like in your teenage, ungentlemanly years, but beyond these rebellious times and into the years of being a gentleman, remove all trace of past rebellions and never, we repeat never, pierce a body part.

3. Take up a seat while a less stable person suffers
This is more common manners than anything else, but a gentleman would never sit (on a tube or otherwise) whilst a woman, less-able or elderly person stands.

4. Break your word
A boy speaks, a gentleman acts on his word and stays true to it.

5. Lie
A real gentleman stays loyal, faithful and honest at all times.

6. Spend far too much time in front of the mirror
Vanity is deeply ungentlemanly.

7. Easily forget his roots
No matter how much a gentleman earns, or how much success he has garnered, a real gentleman will stay humble to his past.

8. Kiss and tell
Because a gentleman never tells.

9. Have one too many at a wedding, especially your own
Someone once told me that there is nothing tackier than a drunk bride, but in retrospect this applies as much to gentlemen as it does to brides to be. A gentleman knows his limits.

10. Be too proud to apologise
A true gentleman will apologise after a fight, even if he wasn’t in the wrong.

11. Urinate in public
Unless you’re an 18 year-old having his first beer, there is simply no excuse.

12. Drive recklessly with a woman or child in the car
You are not clever or rebellious. You are dangerous, and not in the cool, ‘rebel without a cause’ way.

13. Get a visible tattoo when you’re far too old to do so
Similar to number 2, it’s best to avoid this one too. If you did get drunk on a beach in Thailand and get your name in Arabic branded across your back, then consider keeping it covered up.

14. Sit cross legged
Unless you’re doing yoga, which is OK by the way, try and avoiding sitting like a child. There is just something strange about seeing a grown man sitting like a schoolboy.

15. Referring to yourself in the third person
Annoying doesn’t even begin to describe how unbecoming this is.

16. Drunk dial
Not classy, just embarrassing. A gentleman does not need to be inebriated to communicate.

17. Cancel at the last minute
A real gentleman makes plans and sticks to them, no matter what.

18. Swear in public
A gentleman would never let his mood dictate his manners.

19. Believe in luck, or chance
A gentleman knows the power of cause and effect.

20. Patronise
Your age does not define your maturity.
