I found this list while browsing the web : The Rules of a Gentlemen.

Is it just me or does that seem totally crazy? Sure, I can agree with some of those rules, but to express them in such an exhaustive and directive way just doesn't feel right. It really looks like it was written by a sexually frustrated feminist or a girl that just broke up with her man and was getting malevolently delirious.

I'm the first to enjoy treating my lady nicely, but to have such rules imposed on me as if I was a dumb animal who can't figure out respectful manners out of my own sense of goodwill feels extremely offensive. What if it was the other way around, and 375 rules were imposed on you women, to please us men? Surely that would get you mad...

A man who follows this to the letter would either be a disturbed wacko and/or a submissive moron... surely not a Gentleman.

Thoughts?

That seems too much like work to read. I have a bad case of ADOS and could barely get past the first 20 or so.
C'mon, really? 375 rules to be a gentleman?

Some of it should be common sense, but I know a lot of people (men AND women) that are sorely lacking in that department.
Or maybe my common sense isn't the same as other people's. I dunno. I don't "expect" anything.
Maybe that's what makes me different from the rest. I'm just not used to it. I'm used to being used.
I've yet to meet a "gentleman" that didn't show his true colours after he quit pretending to be a "gentleman" and turned into another pretentious asswipe with a hidden agenda.

I hear many say, "Oh he's a gentleman because he does *insert gentlemanly attribute here*"
I say, "Bullshit. I'll believe it when I see it."

The first few I did read make it sound like I should be treated like a child. Maybe some women like that, but I'm not one of them.
Some make you sound like a pushover and ready to be taken advantage of.
After that I grew bored and quit skimming. (Sorry... Just being honest)

If a man wants to be MY gentleman, then he needs to grow a pair and treat me like an equal. It's pretty simple.

I had some fun - any and all of the above would make be 1) irritated. 2) highly peeved. 3) completely pissed. 4) Creeped out.

Some of that shit is ridiculous - especially the whole 'she's always right, treat her like a princess, never lie to her - unless she's asking you if she looks fat, then lie'

*sigh - I really hope guys don't honestly try to do that shit.

Many of those seem like common sense. Others like the author's personal preferences. Eire way I quit reading when I saw how long the list was, though from glancing at the lower sections it looks like they repeat themselves at least a few times. I saw at least two variations of "be honest".

I skimmed through it...if you could ever meet a man that did most of that, I would believe it was a Hollywood script.

Because most of that is totally ridiculous. I agree with others. Just treat me as an equal, show me mutual love and affection, put me on a pedastal sometimes.

Some of that is very creepy...

Lol..

I found this list while browsing the web : The Rules of a Gentlemen.

Is it just me or does that seem totally crazy? Sure, I can agree with some of those rules, but to express them in such an exhaustive and directive way just doesn't feel right. It really looks like it was written by a sexually frustrated feminist or a girl that just broke up with her man and was getting malevolently delirious.

I'm the first to enjoy treating my lady nicely, but to have such rules imposed on me as if I was a dumb animal who can't figure out respectful manners out of my own sense of goodwill feels extremely offensive. What if it was the other way around, and 375 rules were imposed on you women, to please us men? Surely that would get you mad...

A man who follows this to the letter would either be a disturbed wacko and/or a submissive moron... surely not a Gentleman.

Thoughts?




I agree, I don't think that list defines a 'Gentleman' ,it's the author's opinion. I also can agree that some of the things mentioned could be examples of being a gentleman. Others could be examples of being considerate, polite. I'm 100% certain that if a guy I was dating did every one of or even one eighth of the things mentioned on that list, I would consider him to be not only a moron, but obsessed, insane, creepy and just scarey in general.

A person who would take all that time to think about and write such a long list is someone I would run from at a very fast pace.

Now you know this guy is a fuckin' gentleman! clown





Yeah, I think this list came up in a thread a while back and it's as hilarious now as it was then. In a lot of ways, the whole concept of being a 'gentleman' is contrived and steeped in ego. If you have to live by certain rules to validate it and if you have to keep qualifying yourself as one, there's seriously something wrong. Just like the rules of writing - guys should 'show', and not 'tell' when it comes to listing off their traits and character. Everyone interprets behaviour differently and everyone has different criteria required to fulfill a label. One guy might think he's a 'gentleman', while another person observing might just think he's a pretentious pretender with no identity other than shallow role fulfillment. Labels are kind of useless - I feel like saying to guys - just do you - and let the chips fall where they may in terms of how people interpret your behaviour. Otherwise it becomes more about ego and possibly trying to live up to something unnatural and awkward.

As far as this list goes, any guy who fulfilled all (or most) of these criteria would be extremely unattractive - almost like he's given up his own mind and will in favour of putting all his effort into coddling a woman, being clingy and bending to her every whim - although I guess some women like that if they're the insecure, non-independent types.

This is the best one: "No.74 - When both of you are in a fight, take the blame even if she’s wrong."

I mean, I'm a girl and even I think this is a list on how to be pussywhipped more than anything else

What the fuck kind of girl would want an emasculated male as their SO? That's basically what following that list would do to you.

Egad. What a mess. I guess if you find a twisted dominatrix, yea...maybe.

But if you aren't going to stand toe-to-toe with the lady in question, being a "gentleman" will bore they hell out of them.

To be a gent you need only not be:

- An insensitive douche
- A selfish bastard
- A shallow fool
- Mean spirited

That's more along the lines of just being a decent human though.

Seriously, I tried for like 10-15 minutes to find a picture of what kind of lady this list evoked to me, but couldn't find one. This is the perfect example!

Look at them really. The woman has this 'still not quite satisfied' look and looks away from her husband. The man seems all tense with that 'what can I do now? is she gonna get mad again?' attitude.

Sooo... this is the kind of woman following that list will get me. This reeaally makes me want to reconsider.

I was going to say something like that. What I have learned of gentlemen can be summed up in two things: be honorable, and be courteous. Or, in just two words, "be decent."

To try to turn that into a list of almost 400 "rules," which don't even end up producing that...someone really had too much free time.

That's what I was thinking. I really hope a man didn't write this, because if it was written by a man he really needs to put the doll back in his closet and find a real woman to teach him some sense.

To make rules is crazy. But I am an oldschool girls, and I want a gentleman, needless to say that if I get what I want, I make it worth his while. A romantic girl must not be confused with a feminist, bc in the oldschool romance lies a pinch of sub behavior. This kind of girl does not wear the pants, but she worships him and he her.

This is dumb. You shouldn't need a guideline to be a decent human being. Either you are or you aren't.

I'd get annoyed so fast if a guy followed every single one of these. Ugh.

The woman who wrote that really could benefit from a hard dicking session. Then she would rewrite that list with only 2 rules :

No.1 - Act decently
No.2 - Fuck me like that again from time to time

@ slipperywhenwet2012 : Loled hard at that

@ everyone else : Thanks for your brilliant comments, it's nice to see people that think alike
