a true gentleman is respectful t0 every0ne in his 0rbit, fr0m w0men he'd like t0 date t0 elderly pe0ple wh0 need help with their gr0ceries..he takes impeccable care 0f his appearance, is p0lite t0 everyone wh0 deserves it, and is kind t0 w0men regardless 0f whether 0r n0t he thinks he has a chance with them..t0 be a true gentleman, u need t0 be self aware, mature, and c0urteous..alth0ugh it seems that chivalry is dead, u can make a difference by making the eff0rt t0 bring m0re respect and care int0 the w0rld..

maintain proper hygiene.. make sure to bathe regularly..when applying deodorant or cologne, dont use a lot..some girls may not like the smell and if you reek of it, they're not going to be pleased..Also, make sure you dont use too much hair gel, it’s sticky and can get rock hard after a while, making your hair look a little stiff..the important thing is to take regular care of your body and that you look polished and clean before you step out..

wear flattering clothes.. if you want to be a gentleman, then you should wear clothes that fit your body well, eliminate flashy clothing and avoid fashion "faux pas" (e.g. baseball hats cocked slightly to the side)..A simpler wardrobe will keep the emphasis on you, not your clothes, which will change your appearance..stick to simple, solid colors such as blacks, grays, and browns..there’s no need to wear graphic tees, neon green shorts, or obnoxiously large watches..keep it simple, and you’ll look elegant and gentlemanly..

groom yourself well.. to be a true gentleman, you have to make sure your hair is regularly combed and that you either make a point of shaving your facial hair or that you maintain a nice, solid beard..avoid the stubble and go for a nice clean shave every morning, or you will look sloppy..keep a comb handy so you can run it through your hair (in private) if your hair gets windswept or loses volume after a long day..

have a firm handshake.. a true gentleman knows how to give a true handshake..whether you’re meeting your future boss, your girlfriend’s dad, or your sister’s boyfriend, you should make sure to look the person in the eye, grip his or her hand firmly, and show that you mean business..dont grip too hard to show off, but give a firm grip to show that you care enough to make an impression..this shows that you’re a gentleman who takes the time to acknowledge new people..

if a new person that you don’t know walks into the room and you’re being introduced, give him or her the courtesy to stand before giving him or her a handshake..

avoid any offensive
actions in public..
if you’re in public, then you should avoid farting, belching, speaking too loudly, being overly demanding, grabbing your crotch, or getting too drunk..a gentleman is always in control of himself, body and mind..if you do lose control, however, it’s important to apologize instead of acting like nothing happened..

remember that a true gentleman is a person who can go out in public without making a scene or embarrassing himself..

help the people around
always be aware of how you can help people..wait an extra few seconds to hold the door for the person behind you..Offer to help people get their grocery bags to the dont have to go overboard and risk hurting yourself (e.g. if you've got a precarious grip on something heavy, dont open the door for someone) but respect is paramount..true gentlemen dont only focus on the women they like and ignore everyone else being a gentleman is a way of approaching the world and all of the people in it, not just the ones you’d like to date..

be on the lookout for people who could use some help but who may not want to ask for it..the man carrying a tray of coffee would love it if you opened the door for him, but he may not ask..

avoid cursing at all
costs.. dont swear..dont be vulgar..if it's too difficult to stop cursing all together, tone it down a lot..its just not gentlemanly to curse..if you do curse, you should apologize and try to keep the behavior from happening in the future..if you’re in a situation where you tend to curse more often, such as watching sports or driving in traffic, take extra care to watch yourself so you still come off as a perfect gentleman..

treat everyone with
being a gentleman doesn’t just mean being polite and courteous to beautiful women it means being respectful to other men, to the elderly, and even to children..a true gentleman shouldn’t be able to turn his charm on and off, and he should be kind and respectful to absolutely everyone who deserves it..respect a person’s space by not standing too close when you talk to him or her..respect a person’s privacy by not peering over his or her shoulder or asking too many personal questions..the key is to make people feel comfortable and good about themselves, not like they’re being mistreated..
