How to be a gentleman on a first date

Being a gentleman has nothing to do with dressing extravagantly, showcasing grand gestures, or flattering things to say. Elegance truly is in the details and is a way of life. In order to build this lifestyle, one must create small habits and practice them daily.

When you practice these things at home and when nobody is looking, it creates a seamless sense of nature when going out into the world. The most mistaken misconceptions I have noticed are that you have to have a lot of money, be raised a certain way, or commit to eye-rolling stereotypes.

True gentlemanliness is whispered. Achieving the bare minimum is fortunately an easy way to stand out these days. Sometimes attributes are so nuanced you never noticed them, but that is the whole point of acting genuinely as a modern knight. Here are some easily overlooked details that make a vast difference when learning to become a gentleman.

This is the gentlemanly series so far, but if you ever want a deep dive in all things that drastically improve your situation, you can view my entire gentleman’s guide playlists here. I have so much in store for all things lifestyle, wardrobe, and body language that will make you rise among the rest in decent composure. There is more to come to this playlist, so do not forget to subscribe.

The world today is overtly casual to a fault. Keep your personality and interests, but polish up where you have the ability to. Control your life where you can. The odds will dramatically stir in your favour simply by choosing to make a difference in how you can be better. 

Everyone thinks there is a magic potion that changes you overnight to be the best you can be. That is the same thinking as wanting to lose ten pounds after one session at the gym. Time is your friend, and practice will get you very far. Just like anything else. If you want to master something, it will take years, but it will definitely be worth it.

I hope you find some inspiration and use these tips to elevate your your everyday life. What are some things that you noticed make gentlemen stand out? I would absolutely love to know your opinion in the comments below.
